Sammanfattning: This study aims to find out what students think about bilingualism as well as whether there are advantages and disadvantages of it, based on the children's perspective. All children in this class are bilingual, is thus a mother tongue other than Swedish. All were born in Sweden but has parents who are originally from / born in other countries in addition to having mom who was born in Sweden but originally from another country. In my study I have chosen to use qualitative methods in which I used semi-structured interviews and non participant observations. In the study, I have come to interview the children think that being bilingual is good, they mean that there are some drawbacks to this except that it can sometimes be a bit hard when someone does not understand. Also what they think is good with bilingualism is that you can use the languages depending on where you are, if they go to their homeland, they speak their mother tongue with people, relatives because they do not understand Swedish. Or sometimes they need their mother tongue during lesson time when they do not understand a word. Or when they work together with someone who speaks the same language as them, then they sometimes speak the language because it is easier to explain and understand. Being bilingual has formerly been regarded as something negative, but with time, this in turn has changed. Today it has become increasingly common to be bilingual or multilingual, the more languages you know, the better you can get in the society, and then you can switch between languages. To know two languages gives the individual a broader cultural experience.
