    An Empirical Study on Teachers’ Choice of Extensive Literature in the Swedish Upper Secondary EFL Classroom2016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of extensive literature reading in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) context has been given increasing attention in recent research. Literature reading is also a required part of the national syllabi of the (EFL) courses offered to both adolescents and adults at Upper Secondary level in Sweden. This thesis aims to investigate the teachers’ process of making literature choices for extensive reading in upper secondary EFL courses in Sweden. Eight teachers of three different student groups took part in the study, representing adolescent university preparatory programs and vocational programs, as well as programs for adult students. Questionnaires were used and the data was analyzed for patterns revealing three main factors affecting teachers’ literature choice: language proficiency, reading experience and contextual factors. These three factors were fitted into the theoretical framework of psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic reading models, with the addition of a perspective of motivational research. The results of this survey underline the importance of extensive reading, according to teachers, and that motivation for literature choice can be primarily related to factors associated with psycholinguistic reading models. The survey also points to the need for further investigating of teachers’ own experiences of literature reading, searching for deeper motivational factors which influence teaching choices. Another future field of research is the choice of reading activities assigned together with the chosen literature, which probably also influence teachers’ choices in the Swedish EFL classroom.

    Reading That Matters: A Literature Review on Meaningful Reading Experiences in the EFL Classroom2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a literature review on literature reading in the English as a Foreign Language

    (EFL) and the English as a Second Language (ESL) classroom, of mainly upper secondary

    schools. The underlying objective for this work is that meaningful reading experiences can

    have a positive impact on a developing young individual on his or her way into adulthood. The

    aim of this thesis is to explore what theories and methods are used when trying to create

    prerequisites for meaningful reading experiences, and how these experiences actually are

    realized. Qualitative methods are mainly used, except for a small section of the methodology

    of finding the sources, which is quantitative in nature. Since very little previous research has

    been done in the field, the six sources used in this review are internationally spread over five

    continents. They are mainly analyzed from a theoretical background of reader response and

    critical literacy perspectives. The main findings show that a number of theoretical approaches

    and methodologies can be useful in creating meaningful reading experiences. What may have

    proven most effective was addressing actual problems in the students’ everyday lives through

    applied critical literacy.

    Language and Identity at School and at Home: Language Shift among Mennonites in Paraguay2005Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay has investigated the question of an ongoing language shift from Plattdeutsch and German to Spanish among the Mennonites in Paraguay and the role of the school in this process. The aims of the study were to compare the use of languages among the Mennonites in Asuncion and in the Menno colony and to identify the importance that parents give to the languages and to compare this with a school leader perspective. The aim was also to identify factors that influence the language shift and identify the influence that the shift excerpts on Mennonite values and identity. The results are based on my own observations, interviews with Mennonite women and interviews with key informants who have insight into the school policy issues. The outcome may be used as a basis for educational and language planning. There is a need to consciously sit down and re-define the Mennonite identity and to make the community and the school aware of their responsibility in language maintenance.

    Extramural English: Swedish upper secondary students’ beliefs on using and learning English outside the classroom2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study examines students’ use, attitudes and preferences, when it comes to EE (Extramural English). EE is defined as English language activities that learners are engaged in outside their ordinary language class, such as reading books, reading newspapers/magazines, watching TV, watching films, surfing the Internet, playing video games, listening to music, etc. The results of the study are based on data that was collected from Swedish upper secondary-school learners of English over a period of one term on several occasions. Information about students’ EE activities was collected by quantitative questionnaires, including both multiple-choice and open-ended questions.

    The results showed that Swedish upper-secondary school students were engaged in many different extramural activities. The extramural activity that the students were most often engaged in, was watching English language movies. The second most popular extramural activity was watching TV-programs in English with Swedish subtitles.

    Furthermore, according to the surveyed upper-secondary students, most of their language skills they develop with the help of their Extramural contacts with the English language. These are for example understanding of spoken English, speaking English, understanding of English vocabulary and understanding written English. However, when it comes to the written English and the development of English grammar, it appears that the students see themselves as developing these language skills more successfully within the language classroom than in their free time.

    The results also showed that, whereas the above-mentioned extramural activities were preferred by both boys and girls, there were also some differences in their use of extramural activities. Whereas boys rather preferred such activities as "English-speaking role-playing or computer games", girls, according to their answers, preferred such activities as "reading texts in English".

    The results of this study have shown that, according to the students’ responses, there is no strong gender difference when it comes to attitudes about learning English in school versus outside the school.

    English as a Second Language Acquisition through Social Media Usage: Proficiency acquisition in the Swedish Upper-secondary ESL classroom2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Via a systematic literature review, this thesis investigates the possible benefits of employing social media as a learning tool in English as a second language classroom. The thesis is focused on the motivation for learning, potential grammar and vocabulary gains as results of using social media at the upper-secondary level. This systematic literature review is relevant since the current Swedish upper-secondary school’s curriculum promotes technology implementation and at the same time social media has become an everyday feature of many students’ lives. In order to measure the possible benefits of social media, this thesis uses a modified version of Koole’s (2009, p. 27) The Framework for the Rational Analysis of Mobile Education (FRAME) model, which originally was used to determine the optimal way for learning on a mobile platform. This thesis adapted that model and altered it to be applicable for social media platforms instead of mobile devices. The literature review found relevant peer-reviewed studies for this topic through a scholarly education database. The age of the participants in the chosen studies vary from 15-19 years old, and all the chosen studies focus on English as a second language in relation to an education system. The reviewed studies show that social media usage is mainly beneficial for motivation to enhance English vocabulary and grammar proficiency. However, social media usage does not show any significant benefits for grammar proficiency and vocabulary gains when students engage with social media. Although motivation to partake on various social media platforms in ESL does show that students tend to have a desire to expand their ESL knowledge. This review study is in agreement with the reviewed studies regarding the potential benefits of social media for ESL. The reviewed studies on their own were inconclusive as to why social media usage was beneficial. By comparing all the studies result, this literature review thesis promotes the idea that it is the social factor from engaging with social media that is the main reason that motivates students to acquire further ESL knowledge in a school setting or extramurally. Thus, the thesis suggests that an integration of social media in the Swedish upper-secondary school should be taken into consideration due to its proven motivational benefits

    ”He looked at me ... My God. His eyes were eyes to die for.”: A Feminist Theological Reading of Carol Ann Duffy’s The World’s Wife2012Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Most approaches to Duffy’s work have been a feminist reading of poetry, focusing on the portrayal of women within the theoretical framework of feminism. However, little attention has been paid to the religious elements in Duffy’s work, something that Duffy herself has recognized. This essay will therefore focus on the centrality of religion in Duffy’s work, and will argue that her poems constitute an arena where religion is redefined and female experience and theology are reconciled. The poems under focus, “Delilah”, “Salome”, “Pilate’s wife”, “Pope Joan”, “Mrs Lazarous” and “Queen Herod” are examined in two separate sections: their portrayal of love and sexuality, and their portrayal of motherhood respectively, within the theoretical framework of feminist theology.

    The Construction of Identity in Edwidge Danticat's The Farming of Bones2009Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The Farming of Bones deals with issues surrounding the dynamic connections between identity and boundary construction in post-colonial context. It will present an analysis of how the novelist problematizes and communicates her idea of social and national identity construction to her readers and how the readers can identify themselves with the struggles and challenges of the protagonist Amabelle who is trying to find her own identity. This essay will show how Danticat’s novel contributes to an understanding of national identity beyond borders and makes the reader take the role of an individual who constructs her identity by uncovering moments of raw humanness. Until now, no literary scholar has examined the protagonist’s therapeutic role in bridging this social and national gap. Instead critics have discussed other issues of the novel like crossing and re-crossing the border, love, dreams, etc. Although this scholarship has been very effective and rewarding, it lacks any focus on the complexity of the characters’ identity construction. Therefore, this paper will reconsider Danticat’s The Farming of Bones with a closer attention to the question of identity.

    Abstract [en]

    In spite of having a fixed standard of pronunciation, English is being used in various ways in parts of the world, particularly in its way of utterance. English vowel is playing one of the significant roles in making different varieties of English language. This essay tries to see into detail how some phonetic features (formant movement, frequency, pitch) of English vowels vary in relation to Bengali, Catalan, Italian, Spanish and Swedish speakers. It has been found that all these speakers vary a lot from each other in the utterance of English vowels.

    Varieties of English and Secondary School Students in Sweden: An analysis of English textbooks and the role of Extramural English2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines what varieties of English students in Sweden are exposed to inside and outside the classroom, what variety is favored among the students and whether is there a connection between what the students learn extramurally and what they learn in school. The study examines whether the results differ based on gender with respect to students' attitudes towards British and American English. The study involves 50 students, recruited from a school in the northern part of a large city in Sweden. The term Extramural English (EE) is used as a term for all the spare time activities involving the English language outside the language classroom. Several studies, including Sundqvist's (2009) study Extramural English Matters, show that EE leads to a more varied vocabulary use and also an improved oral fluency. The results from these previous studies show in general that there is a positive correlation between EE and students' proficiency in English. The present study was carried out by using questionnaires for both students and their teacher and through a small scale analysis of the English textbooks used at school by the student groups. The results show that students favor the American variety and that EE may be a great influence regarding English varieties in general. The results are based on a very small sample, but may give a better understanding as to whether factors other than teaching of English in the classroom are important for the perceived usage of English varieties by Swedish students. The study may also contribute to an understanding of the increasing popularity of the American variety among students, both inside and outside of the English classroom.

    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.

    Contemporary Approaches to Translation in the Classroom: A study of students' Attitudes and Strategies2011Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen)Studentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore the strategies and attitudes of students towards translation in the context of language learning. The informants come from two different classes at an Upper Secondary vocational program. The study was born from the backdrop of discussions among some English teachers representing different theories on translation and language learning, meeting students endeavoring in language learning beyond the confinement of the classroom and personal experiences of translation in language learning. The curriculum and course plan for English at the vocational program emphasize two things of particular interest to our study; integration of the program outcomes and vocational language into the English course - so called meshed learning – and student awareness of their own learning processes. A background is presented of different contrasting methods in translation and language learning that is relevant to our discussion. However, focus is given to contemporary research on reforms within the Comparative Theory, as expressed in Translation in Language and Teaching (TILT), Contrastive Analysis and “The Third Space”. The results of the students’ reflections are presented as attempts to translate two different texts; one lyric and one technical vocational text. The results show a pragmatic attitude among the students toward tools like dictionaries or Google Translate, but also a critical awareness about their use and limits. They appear to prefer the use of first language to the target language when discussing the correct translation as they sought accuracy over meaning. Translation for them was a natural and problem-solving event worth a rightful place in language teaching.

    Abstract [en]

    Dylan Thomas' work is often explored in light of the poet himself, and he has been referred to as modernism's l'enfant terrible or even described as a late romanticist. The aim in this essay is to explore the poetry without regard to his personal life as well as highlight previously ignored oedipal elements in said poetry. The main goal is to assert Thomas' place amongst the modernist literati, of which most were heavily influenced by Freud, as well as to be an acknowledgement of his work without considering his biography.

    Framing of Muslims and Islam in the British Press: A Comparison of The Times and The Daily Telegraph 2015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis uses methods from discourse analysis and corpus linguistics to investigate the usage of two words related to Islam in The Times and The Daily Telegraph newspapers, both before and after the London bombing of July 7, 2005. Sketch Engine, a Corpus Query System, was used to find the noun collocates of Islamic and Muslim in its adjectival form, in order to determine the most common type of framing. The most common word clusters, Muslim community and Islamic extremist, were then further examined in a qualitative analysis looking at the collocating words, context and linguistic patterns. The expression Muslim community was found to be used by both newspapers, although more frequently in The Telegraph. This collectivises Muslims as a homogeneous group, although the context it was found in tended to be less negative before 7/7. The term Islamic extremist was found with collocating words related to violence and militancy, but after 7/7 Islamic extremists were no longer framed as violent, but instead as problematic. The framing of Muslims and Islam changed after 7/7, and the framing differed between the newspapers. So although newspapers may appear neutral, they may not be and the appearance of neutral news reporting may be, the result of the naturalisation of the various frames used, and these frames appear to be changing with time.

    Using Swedish in the ESL Classroom: An interview study about students and teachers use of Swedish in the ESL classroom2018Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this empirical study is to investigate the role of the L1 (Swedish for the purpose of this study) at upper secondary schools in Sweden, in English class. It also examines teachers’ and students’ attitudes towards the use of the L1 in the ESL classroom. The method that has been used for this thesis is a qualitative research method. In order to collect data, structured open-ended interviews were conducted. A total of eleven upper secondary students from the same school, and six upper secondary ESL teachers from four different schools, participated in this study. The results show that almost all of the participating students and teachers think that the L1 should be allowed in the classroom, as it can be used as a resource for learning. For instance, as the results demonstrate, the L1 was mainly used as a tool to clarify instructions, explain difficult terms, explain vocabulary and grammar rules, when translating, to manage discipline, and when they are socializing with each other. The majority of the participants suggest that the L1 worked as a very helpful tool in the learning process, especially in situations where students lacked understanding. However, there were also critical responses towards the use of the L1, particularly since the L1 can be easily overused. Previous research shares these latter views regarding the use of the L1 in the classroom, and confirms that it is important that learners are exposed to as much English as possible for successful language learning and development.

    ICT as a tool in English teaching: A literature review on the use of ICT for Swedish students with learning difficulties and their literacy learning in grades 7-92015Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Information and communication technology (ICT) is a subject that is being discussed as a tool that is used within education around the world. Furthermore it can be seen as a tool for teachers to individualize students´ education. Students with literacy difficulties, such as dyslexia, are in constant need of new ways to learn, and new ways to be motivated to learn. The aim of this study is to see what research says in regard to how ICT can be used as a tool to help students with literacy difficulties. Literacy difficulties can be due to a number of things, such as the student has not been taught how to read, trouble within the family which can cause distress, or a neurological disorder such as dyslexia. Furthermore, the main research questions will focus on how ICT can be compared to traditional education forms, such as books and a more teacher centered education within the classroom, and whether ICT can be preferred. The results of this literature review indicates that ICT can be seen as a way for teachers to help students with literacy difficulties gain more self-esteem – something the literature tells us students with learning difficulties lack. The results also show how ICT can lead to a more individualized education. This is due to tools that increase reading comprehension and tools that give direct response when working with ICT, which helps students work more independently.

    Teachers’ Views on ICT as a Tool in English Teaching for Students with Dyslexia: An interview study with English teachers in grades 7-92016Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Information and communications technology (ICT) is a broad concept, which is often discussed in relation to the development of education. More specially, ICT can be seen as a tool to help teachers individualize students’ education. Students who have literacy difficulties, such as dyslexia, are in constant need of new techniques to help them learn and new tools to make their educational development easier. The aim of this thesis is to show what views teachers have regarding using ICT in English teaching at a sample of schools in the south of Sweden. A secondary part of the aim is to see what ICT tools, or other non ICT related methods, these teachers use to improve literacy skills for students with dyslexia.This empirical study is based on interviews with six participants. Previous research within the area is presented and different aspects of ICT within the National Agency for Education in Sweden, and the English syllabus, are also discussed. The results of this thesis show that ICT is seen as a helpful tool to make education easier for both students and teachers. Tools such as ViTal, Spell Right and Legimus are being used and the participants of the study also use iPads and Chromebooks in their teaching. According to the interviews, ICT can tribute to a fun way of learning and a more individualized education. Other non ICT related methods are also used to help students with dyslexia and these are often in terms of pictures in connection to words. These findings are based on a limited number of participants in a small area of south of Sweden. Therefore, further research is needed to see if the findings can be verified with more participants, in different parts of the country.

    A Corpus Study of Signalling Nouns in L2 English Essays by Swedish Students2018Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    This study is about the structure of the noun phrases used with with signalling nouns, which are abstract nouns that are hard to understand without a context. The inspiration for the study comes from work by John Flowerdew. The aim is to investigate in what type of noun phrases (NP) the signalling nouns are used by L2 English students and if the structures of these NPs tell us something about the meaning of the nouns. The material of the study is from the pioneering learner corpus the

    International Corpus of Learner’s English (ICLE). In general, it was found that the chosen signalling nouns thing, argument, possibility, chapter, kind and fact, are frequently used in complex NPs. There were some differences in the distribution of nouns, with thing, kind and fact having rather high frequencies in comparison to the other nouns. For this reason, samples of these nouns were selected for the analysis. The findings indicate that these signalling nouns rarely appear alone but are most often used in complex NPs. Furthermore, the results also show that a large proportion of these nouns is used in fixed phrases.

    Flipped Classroom: A Literature Review on the Benefits and Drawbacks of theReversed Classroom2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Technology has become an integral part in the realm of education. The flipped classroom is a

    recent teaching method where students can watch instructional online videos outside the

    classroom that actively engage them in their learning process. Although this trend has gained

    momentum in many disciples and there are many studies available, research behind language

    acquisition through the flipped classroom model is limited. Still it is implemented by many

    teachers in the upper secondary school in Sweden. The aim of this study is to investigate the

    benefits and drawbacks of the flipped classroom in the EFL context and to see if the Flipped

    Classroom enhances interactive skil

    ls in students’ language learning. Peer reviewed research

    articles were used and data has been collected through research behind the Flipped Classroom.

    The perceptions behind it were divided. Some teachers and students experienced the Flipped

    Classroom as something positive with regard to availability of material, the promotion of active

    learning for students and enhancement in language interaction. Along with these, criticism

    made on this teaching method is that creating material to be available online was time

    consuming and that perceived an increase in the homework load. As regards oral interaction,

    both teachers and students felt that it did enhance skills in speaking since preparation before

    class lead to qualitative time for interaction with the teacher during class, something that was

    very limited before implementing the flipped classroom model. This review suggests that there

    is a demand for further studies in the area of English language teaching and English language

    acquisition in the Swedish context of upper secondary education.
