... Research into the effect of linguistic errors or pragma-linguistic infelicities on the L1 language user is rare, especially for German language users. Most of the current literature on LX error perception is about the effect of grammatical errors on the reader (see Rifkin & Roberts, 1995, for an overview), and only a few studies address the effect of pragma-linguistic infelicities (Aimoldina et al., 2016;Hendriks, 2010;Zhu, 2012). ...
... Living in a country with over 130 dialects and cultural groups (Zharkynbekova & Agmanova, 2016), students in Kazakhstan have diverse ethnic and linguistic practices (Schatz, 2000).

... Furthermore, they discovered that some stakeholders had negative views on how trilingual education is implemented [14, p.152-176] Foreign experts involved in the development of EMI curriculum have a different point of view. They consider that policy in Kazakhstan should be focused on Kazakh language and develop Kazakh rather than other languages (Zharkynbekova et al., 2013) [15, p.3]. Thus, William Fierman, Director of Seattle University's Center for the Study of Central Asia and Kazakhstan, believes that in today's Kazakhstan, the Kazakh language should be given a more important role, especially in cities, and that greater emphasis should be paid to teaching approaches. ...

(2015) emphasize that language policy (LP) makers significantly influence the attitudes of people and national identity and a multilingual policy could thus obviously slow down the building of a nation-state. Therefore, national patriots blame the government for soft and slow measures to support Kazakh as a state language (Kudaibergenova, 2016). ...
