The Importance of Play when Learning English in the Preschool : Pedagogues´Views on How to Use Play as a Way To Expose Children To the English Language (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to contribute knowledge on how pedagogues use play as a way to expose children to the English language. I chose the qualitative method of interviews to conduct my study. The objects of study were four English speaking pedagogues at a preschool with English in their profile. This profile was a major factor when choosing where to carry out the study, as not every preschool in Sweden offers English.

The interviews were conducted in English, as all four pedagogues were native English speakers and I did not want a possible language barrier to influence the results. The questions were composed with play as a focal point and a way to expose the children to English.

My findings showed that play is an important tool for children to take part of and learn English. The pedagogues intentionally used play both when it was initiated by the children, but also in planned activities lead by the pedagogue. All four pedagogues expressed that play is the way through with children learn, and therefore an important factor to consider.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att bidra med kunskap om pedagogers arbete med att genom lek stimulera det engelska språket. Jag valde att göra en kvalitativ undersökning i form av enskilda intervjuer med fyra engelsktalande pedagoger på en förskola. Förskolan erbjuder engelska i sin profil och detta styrde mitt val av undersökningsobjekt.

Intervjuerna genomfördes på engelska, då alla fyra pedagoger har engelska som modersmål och jag inte ville att en eventuell språkbarriär skulle påverka resultatet. Frågorna utgick ifrån leken som möjlighet för att stimulera det engelska språket.

I resultatet visade det sig att leken är ett viktigt redskap för att barnen ska få ta del av och lära sig engelska. Pedagogerna använde medvetet leken både där det initierades av barnen men även i pedagogstyrda aktiviteter. Samtliga pedagogers inställning till leken var att det är genom denna som barnen lär sig.
