Swedish as a second language : A qualitative study about the teaching forms in second language learning (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study is to understand and examine the problem and

reason why second language pupils have difficulties reaching the goals of the

curriculum in “Swedish as a second language”. The study is based on interviews with

two second language teachers and Vygotskijs and Antonovskys theories. The interviews

with teachers gave a broader view on why these difficulties exist and what

consequences might occur. This analysis shows that there can be different reasons as to

why pupils can not reach the goals in their second language that are set for them. The

reasons can be various because a majority of these pupils escaped to Sweden as refugees

and they carry with them very different backgrounds and experiences. Factors such as

pupil´s health, interrupted native language, lack of understanding in the second

language and social- and cultural differences play an important role in second language

acquisition. Another significant factor and part in this writing is the classroom teaching

and how the teacher conducts the lessons taking pupils’ backgrounds, conditions and

capabilities into consideration. This study also observes similarities and dissimilarities

in second language learning that includes pupils with different native languages learning

Swedish as a second language. In all the study shows that teachers do not teach, base or

plan their education through scientific methods. The teachers explained that they work

in a concrete way with second language learners that have recently been introduced to

the Swedish language because that, according to them, is the best and most helpful way

for these children to learn the Swedish language. The study also showed that the

teachers have a huge role as educators because besides the knowledge in Swedish and

other subjects the educators also have to teach them social skills. In addition to that they

also need to have the ability to know the pupils individually to know when the pupil is

open, calm and mindset for learning or when the pupil is absentminded and needs just to

be calm and do something where concentration is not needed.
