Lingvistisk osäkerhet hos svenska grundskollärare : En kvalitativ studie om lärares upplevelse av och inställning till det engelska språket
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study was to research Swedish primary school teachers' experiences and attitudes towards the English language in general as well as the school subject. To answer the research purpose, four research questions were constructed: What is the teachers’ view on the English language? What is the best way to learn English according to the teachers? How do the teachers think that the teaching in English should look like? Do the teachers feel that they are affected by their own attitude towards English? To answer the study's research questions, a qualitative research method was used in the form of interviews. The sample consisted of six Swedish primary school teachers from the mid-Sweden. All teachers were qualified primary school teachers and all taught in the subject English. All interviews were recorded, transcribed and coded. To analyze the result, theories and research on linguistic insecurity, self-efficacy and social learning were used. The result showed that teachers felt that English was very important and teaching on the subject should be based on communication. Furthermore, the teachers presented a subjective picture of English where they examined their previous experiences, relationships and knowledge in English. The study may be of interest to the Swedish school system as the study provides insight into the Swedish primary school teachers' feelings and experiences.
