Abstract [en]

Globalisation has contributed to the increased importance of English language teaching. However, questions have been raised on the best and effective methods to be used in teaching grammar. This study identifies methods that could be appropriate in teaching English grammar for students in Swedish upper secondary school. The collection of relevant data for this literature review was conducted using different databases like ERIC, Google Scholar and Educational database. The databases present what some research says about grammar teaching and learning, attitudes of students towards grammar teaching and learning, and what could motivate students in grammar learning, as well as areas of grammar that students find impede their learning. The results indicate that explicit grammar teaching and implicit grammar teaching methods have both advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, most researchers suggest a teaching method which incorporates both teaching styles in a holistic way as the foundation of English language and grammar learning. The use of multimodal technology in grammar teaching has also been found to have some positive effects in engaging and motivating learners in their grammar learning. Using special designed computer programs, mobile phone and popular culture materials in English language teaching and learning would increase the students’ motivation in grammar and help them learn the language.
