This article proposes a qualitative study framed by a specific historical and national context – the Israeli policy on ‘New Immigrant Teacher Absorption.’ Based on Bourdieu's Theory of Practice and drawing on data from linguistic biographies, the inquiry centered on teachers’ experience as immigrant language speaker. The results allow deep insights into how immigrant teachers come to perceive their migration-induced multilingualism as a capital and underscore the importance of political measures in this process.
