Abstract [en]

Movies are a common feature in Swedish English as a foreign language (EFL) classrooms as well as listening comprehension methods. However, few studies combine these two and even fewer research the topic of teachers’ views on movies to teach listening comprehension. The aim for this empirical research was to research teachers’ perception regarding this subject of movies to teach listening comprehension. The results show that teachers find that students tend to be more motivated when movies are incorporated into the lessons but that it also is time consuming in both planning and lesson time. The results also show the teachers’ views of the importance of how movies should be used in lessons. The results show that pausing a movie regularly can benefit listening proficiency development and during the pauses, varied activities can be used to further activate and motivate students. Such activities can for example be discussions or writing assignments, are important to successfully develop students’ listening proficiency. The research also shows that more studies are needed within the subject of visual aids such as movies and movie clips and listening comprehension.
