Summary/Abstract: In my paper, I follow the development of the relationship between the language of instruction, the mother tongue, and the state language in Hungarian-language vocational training in Romania from the point of view of minority expectations (the possibility to learn in one’s mother tongue) within the objective conditions of the Romanian public education system. The issue of the language of instruction in the mother-tongue vocational training within the bilingual educational system can be emphasized for two reasons. On the one hand, the choice of the language of instruction (mother tongue or the state language) becomes a factor of career choice for Transylvanian students, while the mother-tongue acquisition of the different special languages can curb or stop the functional loss of language, on the other.
