Abstract [en]

In contemporary Sweden, the influx of English is great and research has shown that extramural contact with English correlates positively with secondary school students’ proficiency in English (Olsson, 2011; Sundqvist, 2009; Sylvén, 2004). However, little is known learners in primary school, because empirical studies are scare. Considering the fact that more than half of Swedish 5th-graders indicate that they have learned English as much or more outside of school as in school (Skolverket, 2004), the present study is one attempt to at least partially fulfil a void in research.

The paper reports about an on-going project among young learners of English in Sweden. The informants (N=176) are at three levels in school: preschool class, grade 3, and grade 6. The main objective of the study is to examine extramural English (‘informal learning of English outside of school in the spare time’) among young children and its connection with school, socioeconomic background, gender, and ethnicity (L1).
