Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine in which way and to which extent textbooks/workbooks for teaching English as a foreign language support oral interaction. The study compares oral exercises in two sets of primary school textbooks/workbooks, Magic and Good Stuff Gold, and is performed with quantitative content analysis and a qualitative description of exercises. The results show that in both sets of books the main speech acts promoted in exercises are asking questions and giving information about oneself. Other speech acts, such as expressing opinions or feelings, demanding actions and using typical features of social interaction, are much less frequent, which might lead to a limited repertoire of how to use the language. The study also shows that even though the books offer a fair amount of oral interaction exercises, many of the exercises do not give the pupils an opportunity to speak English based on their own interests and experiences, or a need to express meaning, contrary to what is known to support pupils developing their language skills. Both sets of books, however, also offer exercises that provide this opportunity, the more recently published Good Stuff Gold to a greater extent.
