Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine pupils’ perspective of how they feel about speakingin English in the classroom. By examine this area through pupils’ perspective teachers can get an insight on how pupils can perceive English communication. By getting this insight it can lead to teachers changing how they choose to design the lecture to benefit the pupils needs. In this study I also wanted to see how teachers work with English communication in the classroom. I wanted to get information on how they think their pupils feel about speaking English and how they mostly get to work with English communication. To examine this area I chose to leave surveys to 58 students and three teachers.The result showed that the English language is important for the pupils and many of them are at different levels cognitively, but they all have a will to learn more English. However, there are difficulties that occur which makes it hard for the pupils to speak English in the classroom. The main reason is the classroom environment. Many pupils experience that other classmates laugh, point and whisper when someone is speaking English which leads to fear and resistance to speak English in front of other classmates. This leads to many of the students wanting to speak English in smaller groups and to get more time to prepare. This study is therefore important for the teachers’ didactic choices to be able to successfully benefit the pupils.
