Russian-speaking immigrants residing in the Czech Republic or Germany are faced with the challenge of acquiring the Slavic (Czech) or Non-Slavic (German) language of the new environment. This process is influenced by their native language. The volume empirically analyses the acquisition of a related language compared to that of a non- or distantly related one and explores how the non-homogeneous language of the new environment - situation of diglossia in the Czech Republic, diaglossia in Germany - influences this acquisition. It additionally examines the impact of several sociolinguistic factors on L2 acquisition, especially age.
