Abstract [en]

The aim of this work was to study students´ opinions about oral communication during English lessons at Senior High School. In the communicative society we live in today it is important that people have the ability to communicate orally in English. The curriculum clearly states that Senior High School should develop the oral communication and social competence of the students. It has been shown that this is not always the case. Research shows that the typical communication in a classroom is a one- way communication where the teacher talks and the students are given the opportunity to say a few words. This study has focused on investigating how students in three practical classes and three theoretical classes in their final year of Senior High School feel when they have to communicate orally in English at school. It has also discussed their opinions about oral communication in general and if they think it is an equal distribution between oral communication and written exercises during their English lessons.
