When the language is not enough : Success factors in the Swedish subject for second language students in the primary grades (English)
The purpose of the survey was to identify which methods primary teachers are using and see
as success factors in the language development. To study which factors came from a sociocultural
approach to learning, in order to develop and create discussions and improvements so
that second language learners reach their targets. The study is based on three teachers'
teaching of second language students in the primary grades, using qualitative interviews and
observations of their work.
The results revealed that the organization and support resources are significant and can vary
between schools in the same municipality. Furthermore it showed that two of the teachers
interviewed, felt that it was difficult to teach second language students. They felt that they had
insufficient knowledge, a heavy workload, a lack of time and they expressed both
powerlessness and frustration. The conclusion of the study is that teachers, teaching second
language students in the primary grades, did not believe in the use of just one method in their
teaching, but used combined various methods. Several of these methods are based on a sociocultural
approach, which reflected their vision and attitude to the learning process.
