Abstract [en]

The purpose of this research survey is to investigate how the extramural English that primary-school pupils, grades 4-6, devote their leisure time to - playing games, listening to music, surfing the web and watching TV – may affect their performance of English in school. The study also investigates research about the teachers’ role in the pupils’ development of English proficiency. The research that I review in this essay shows that extramural English has positive effects on the pupils’ learning in school. The results also show that it is important for teachers to base their teaching on the pupils’ prior knowledge of, and interest in, English. In this way, teachers can help increase the pupils’ motivation to learn more English. How teachers encourage pupils to learn is also examined, to a limited extent, in this study, particularly how they make pupils take responsibility for their own language learning.
