Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to find out if there are any differences between what teacher trainees expect and what teachers claim in a number of areas in English teaching at upper secondary schools. More specifically, are there any differences in expectations and claims between the two groups when it comes to the use of course books, the national tests, setting grades, grammar teaching and the use of movies in course A English. The involved trainees were on their last year of teacher training and the involved teachers had worked for a maximum of two years. In order to carry out the research, both quantitative- and qualitative interviews with teacher trainees and teachers were done. In the quantitative interviews, trainees and teachers answered questions about the mentioned topics and were also asked to write what they expect or claim to be the most difficult and easy area in the English teaching classroom. In addition, the qualitative interviews with six trainees and teachers gave voices to what the two groups declared. According to my findings, there are differences in all but one topic. The conclusion also suggests what can be made in teacher training education in order to declare the gap between trainees and teachers become smaller.
