German as a foreign language : What the Swedish school system offers - and what Swedish companies demand (English)
Abstract [en]

The thesis shows the discrepancy regarding the foreign languages German, French andSpanish between the Swedish school system and the Swedish companies depending oninternational trade. Especially in focus is the German language, since Germany andSweden are connected by a trading volume of circa 50%, which makes the neighbouringcountry the biggest export- and import market for Sweden.This disproportion is substantiated by a survey on the foreign languages in tenSwedish companies as well as in a grammar school. Although the results of the surveyare of purely hypothetical character, there is a recognizable tendency, which underlinesthe importance of the German language for Swedish companies. In addition, acomparison between past and present primary school and grammar school curricula hasbeen made and by using the frame factor theory, gaps in language teaching, which resultin struggles for the Swedish export industry, could be shown. As an outcome of thisstudy, several suggestions are made with which the status of the foreign languages,especially the status of German, can be increased
