Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine second language learner’s possibilities to use a subject specific language in class. The literacy perspective is constant throughout the study as well as theories on second language learning and theories on conversations about texts. By answering the questions below good examples and possible difficulties with second language learning was also exemplified.

  • In which situations where the students offered to speak subject specifically and how does the teachers motivate the ongoing conversations?
  • In what way is conversations about texts being used as a tool for further comprehension?
  • In what way does the second language learners benefit from the conversations?

Through interviews and observations following conclusions can be made. Students are relatively often offered to use a subject specific language during class but more can be done since subject specific conversations almost never take place in the first grade. More conversations about texts from early ages is being presented as a possible solution to this issue.
