Among the social effects of the growth of the immigrant population, what appears to be the most interesting and full of cultural and political consequences is represented by the phenomenon of multilingualism. As a result of foreign immigration, countries – such as Italy – have become countries where a variety of languages are spoken. The mastery of the language of the country of reception, however, is essential for the full integration of immigrants in different contexts of society, promoting their cultural, social and economic integration and becoming more and more often a necessary requirement for the acquisition of citizenship. In this paper we intend to identify the actual or self-perceived level of knowledge of the Italian language and the main characteristics that language learning assumes in the immigrant population present in Italy. Finally, a special focus will be dedicated to the issue of learning Italian by immigrant students or students of immigrant origin. To analyse the phenomenon of multilingualism among people of foreign origin regularly resident in Italy and their perception of the degree of learning of Italian, we referred to the survey Condizione e integrazione sociale dei cittadini stranieri, carried out by istat in 2011-12. In particular, we considered people born abroad and in Italy, still foreign or naturalized, at least 6 years old at the time of the survey. Finally, with the information available thanks to the invalsi evidence, the actual level of knowledge of the Italian language on the part of immigrant students or students of immigrant origin was verified.
