Teachers' professionalization is promoted by language education that includes mother tongue across the curriculum, foreign languages and professional language. Aim of the research is to analyze views of newly qualified pedagogues of social work on languages of professionalization. The object of the present research is views of newly qualified pedagogues of social work on languages of professionalization. The present research involves a process of analyzing the meaning of the key concepts "professionalization", "language" and "plurilinguism". An explorative research aimed at developing hypotheses, which can be tested for generality in following studies (Mayring, 2007) has been used in the empirical study. The empirical research was carried out in the English course of the professional bachelor programme "Social pedagogue" at the University of Latvia in 2011. The newly qualified pedagogues of social work do not consider English as a foreign language and Latvian as a professional/academic language as languages of professionalization.
