Abstract [en]

This is a paper about Swedish upper secondary students’ awareness of the four learning styles in the acronym VAKT (visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile) and whether they are important for getting a certain grade in English. In my study I investigate learning styles of students of English as a second language at upper secondary school in Sweden. I also investigate the students’ awareness of their own learning style and to what extent they feel that all learning styles are represented in their classrooms. My results show that learning styles are of some importance and should be mentioned in teacher education today. This essay also brings up motivation and a discussion on how the VAKT learning styles and similar learning styles can help students feel motivated in and outside the classroom. There are also results on how students see their own use of English in their future and what their goals with learning English are.
