Abstract [en]

Today’s students are struggling to achieve a pass level at secondary education and have difficulties in learning core subjects such as English. By increasing the size of classes, reducing the number of teachers and constantly reviewing the curriculum, the students are finding it more difficult to achieve a pass grade in foreign languages. Therefore, the aim of the present study is to acquire a broader knowledge of how, and whether, Earl W Stevick’s seven learning categories are applied in Swedish education.

The findings of this study indicated that some of the secondary school teachers provide occasionally for all different learning categories, but were unable to accommodate all styles regularly. Moreover, university lecturers were unfamiliar with Stevick’s learning categories. Thus, his theories were not part of the formal university curriculum.

However, as only one secondary school and seven universities were included in the study, no generalization for the Swedish educational system could be made, and a more extensive research study is encouraged.
