The purpose of my study was to examine the language habits and language ideology of a multilingual family in a southern Slovakian village. The language biographies of the mother, father and their children contain not only the characteristics of their language competences, but also their linguistic habits, their attitudes towards the individual languages and their subjective opinions, which I examined in the framework of three interviews. The research is of a psycho-sociolinguistic character. This approach has relevance from the point of view that it shows the Hungarian language use of a person with German mother tongue who had learnt Hungarian as a second language, and, further, with the help of language biographies, it offers a complex picture on my respondents of a young age about language education, and also about language ideologies of their family members.
