Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to explore the subject of English in the younger school years. The research questions are focused on how much time teachers spend on teaching English, how much English input the pupils are getting, how the lessons are planned and what the pupils think of their English lessons. The methods of the study have been classroom observations and interviews with pupils in both grade one and two. National as well as European policy documents emphazis a communicative view in language learning and teaching, which a majority of the pupils in my classes did not experience as neither the teahers nor the pupils did speak English very often. The classes I observed did have 30 to 40 minutes per week sceduled to English but the avrage teaching time was often less than the time that was scedueled. The pupils biggest english input was from different songs and videos from youtube.
