Extramural English in the First Grade

Abstract [en]

Today’s primary school pupils encounter English in a wide variety of ways through the use of

various forms of media. This thesis aims to research how the very youngest pupils in the

Swedish primary school encounter the English language in their time outside of school and

whether or not it has any impact on how they relate to the subject in school. Teachers’ views

on their pupils’ habits will also be compared, as well as whether they see encounters outside

the classroom as having any visible effects on the pupils. Through the use of interviews with

both seven- to eight-year-old pupils and teachers, it was possible to find common forms of

extramural English (EE) among the pupils, but little evidence it contributed to their views on

English at school. Teachers were largely aware of their pupils’ interests and were positive

towards using EE content in class, but did not feel it was possible to do so.
