Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to highlight similarities and differences with regard to the Swedish language in a second language perspective in Sweden and a first language perspective in Finland. We want to investigate the role of the same language in different contexts, in schools and the content of the curriculums in both countries. This study is based on the Swedish and Finnish curriculums, but also school research from the respective countries. The method is a literature and research study. The Swedish language’s role in school for students with Swedish as their second language in Sweden is something that is perceived as very important, in spite of this, there is reason for concern considering many of these students ' school performances. Finland Swedish pupils are often performing better when it comes to language teaching, the likely cause is that they often already are multilingual when they start in school. 20% of children with foreign background in Sweden in 2002 spoke no Swedish at home, which of course can lead to an impaired learning because the Swedish language is not developing at home. The importance of feeling accepted is a common denominator in both countries. Foreign-born in Sweden emphasizes that the language is a big part of feeling accepted by the society. In the same way, many Finland Swedes choose to speak Finnish in public not to feel excluded. Swedish is an official language in both Sweden and Finland which makes for an interesting comparison of minorities use of official Swedish in both countries. This study will highlight the differences and similarities in regard to the educational goals in the subjects “mother tongue” in Finland and “Swedish as a second language” in Sweden. The study will also show what the curriculums content in these two subjects in Sweden and Finland.
