ABSTRACT

Aim: The purpose of this study is to produce knowledge regarding the effects of media consumption and exposure on language learning skills.

Method: The study assumes the form of a pedagogical language experiment which encompasses language learning skills through consumption and exposure of entertainment media. Furthermore, the study preforms a quantitative examination of the hypothesis stating that those Swedish high school students that have watched one season or more of the Norwegian entertainment program Skam, would preform better on the studies language test, than those who had not watched Skam. The method of data gathering is based on a questionnaire form including a language test, which was handed out to different high schools Sweden. The gathered data will be presented and analyzed through the statistical data program PSPP, where the results are presented through a descriptive design. This study has a certain positivistic character since it performs a test of an assumed hypothesis.

Result: The majority of the Swedish students that had never watched Skam, preforms poorly on the study’s language test. The majority of the students that have watched Skam for one season or more, preforms either average or good on the language test. As a result, this study indicates that considerable exposure of the entertainment series Skam, can increase the Norwegian language skills of Swedish high school students.

Conclusion: This study indicates that exposure of Skam is the variable with the most considerable impact on the respondent’s Norwegian language skills. Other variables like sociocultural status and visits to Norway is shown to have less significant impact on the pupil’s performance on the language test.
