The purpose of this study is to chart and describe which content and different models that teachers use when teaching English as a foreign language at upper secondary school in Sweden. The study was performed through a phenomenonographic point of view, where the aim is to present and compare different understandings within a certain area. Our study emanates in Lars-Göran Malmberg’s theories about different teaching models used when teaching Swedish, which have been transferred and modified by Bo Lundahl into teaching English as foreign language. On the basis of this theory, six individual interviews with different teachers at upper secondary school were carried out with concern of discussing the content and aim of English teaching. Since the idea of communication is frequently used in the teaching plan for the Swedish school system, focus in this study has also been to understand and compare what meaning different teachers put in this term.Conclusions were that all of the teachers have different conceptions of the subject, and also that they focus on different parts and content within their teaching. As far as the term communication is concerned, this also had a very different meaning to the teachers in the study. A consequence of this, and the fact that the subject itself is considered to be very diverse, could be that students leave school with different knowledge.
