Abstract [en]

This paper investigates individual learning and teaching strategies by conducting a study among pupils and teachers on the topic. Pupils have answered a questionnaire where they were asked how they learn vocabulary. In addition, teachers have been interviewed where they were asked how they teach vocabulary. Finally, it was investigated what words pupils should learn. The study showed that pupils use a variety of different learning strategies. In addition, teachers use different teaching strategies when teaching vocabulary. It is stated that there are a number of different learning strategies pupils can use. The main teaching strategies should be to teach the words in different contexts but also present different meanings to the word. Finally, high-frequency words should be in focus as well as words of specific use to the pupils.
