Abstract: This article presents and discusses the results of a questionnaire completed by 74 secondary school teachers in Barcelona. The topics of the questionnaire revolved around linguistic representations, especiaUy those relating to the visibility of linguistic diversity in secondary schools (e.g., the need to preserve languages, representations of language varieties, and so on). The responses from the teachers show considerable variation in their awareness of the presence of different languages in their surroundingsj and make clear that identification with a state and the official status of a language are factors that contribute to creating visibility over and above the size of the community in the environment or the overaU number of speakers. The data also reveal a certain degree of incoherence between general principies and concrete situations, and between situations close to the teachers (related to their own language) and alien situations. FinaUy, the results are related to variables that describe the language teachers, such as their age, first language, and the department to which they belong in the secondary school.
