The objective of this study is to investigate a connection between pupils’ self-confidence and
extramural English. This is a quantitative survey study made among 37 fifth-graders in the
Aland Islands, where a group of pupils were given questions about how they feel about
English as a subject in school, and particularly about spoken English. There were also
questions about their exposure to English at home. The results of the survey show that there is
a connection between confidence and extramural English. Especially among the pupils
playing computer games, the result shows that they are more self-confident when speaking
English than the pupils who do not play computer games.
