Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study which examines students' language use from a gender perspective. The survey was done through observation analyzed using Dell Hymes method, Ethnography of Communication. The focus is on how these students speak and also if the teacher's didactics have any impact on the classroom interactions. The results show a clear gender difference in how the language is used and the teacher's didactics may be one reason why these differences occur in classrooms.
