Lack of understanding : a study about how the mother tongue language education takes place at the school (English)
Abstract [en]

View description: The purpose of this study is to investigate in what way the mother tongue language education integrates in a compulsory school activities and also which significance it has to the students who studies mother tongue language. My questions are following:

  • How does the cooperation look like between mother tongue languages teacher, teacher and principal?
  • How do students perceive the mother tongue language education?
  • How does the mother tongue language education take place at the school?

Method: This investigation is classified as a qualitative study and consists of theoretical points and empirical material such as interviews and observations.  Based on hermeneutic view of tradition which means that I interpret all my material.

Results: My results of this study is that the mother tongue language education does not integrate with the other school activities and the mother tongue language teachers does not cooperate with other teachers or principal at this school. The reason for this is mainly because the mother tongue language teachers work situation. I´ve also seen that language has to do with the creation of a personal identity. The students who studies mother tongue language education is generally happy with this type of education but agrees with that they only can use their mother tongue language outside school and at the mother tongue language education. Ann Ludvigsson writes in her thesis about how important it with the cooperation between teachers and how that can be good for the students development (Ludvigsson 2009:19-22).
