Abstract [en]

Reading authentic literature in the English classroom is part of Swedish student´s English education in upper secondary level, according to Skolverket. Therefor, the aim of this work is to determine how six English teachers on this level use authentic literature, how their attitudes towards it is and what they think the benefits for their students are.

The method used in this work is qualitative, using interviews as the means to reach a conclusion.

The result shows that the interviewed teachers all use authentic literature at least once every academic year and that their methods are quite similar, working with the literature in book circles and also including films as a way to compare book and film or simply to consolidate what the students have read. It also shows that the teachers have a positive actitude towards using literature in their teaching and that they consider that the benefits for the students are superior since reading trains many aspects of the language ability, such as vocabulary, grammar, interpretation of content and culture knowledge.
