Abstract [en]

“The apprenticeship of observation” is a person’s previous experiences as a student and it can greatly affect a person’s beliefs about teaching. This paper aimed to study the effect that previous student experiences had had on English major students at a university in China. A questionnaire was designed in order to collect data. The questionnaire was distributed to 117 undergraduate English majors. The results showed that the English majors considered their previous experiences as students to have greatly affected their current beliefs about English language teaching. The results further showed that the effects had mainly been positive and that the English major students considered “methods for English teaching”, “content”, and “lesson planning” to be the areas that had been affected most. These results were in accordance with most previous studies on the topic. 

Abstract [sv]

“Observationens lärlingskap” (min översättning) är en persons tidigare erfarenheter som elev och dessa kan starkt påverka en persons uppfattning om undervisning. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilken effekt tidigare eleverfarenheter hade haft på engelskstuderande studenter vid ett universitet i Kina. Ett frågeformulär utformades för att samla in underlag. Frågeformuläret delades ut till 117 engelskstudenter. Resultatet visade att engelskstudenterna ansåg att deras tidigare eleverfarenheter starkt hade påverkat deras nuvarande åsikter om engelskundervisning. Vidare visade resultatet att effekten mestadels var positiv och att engelskstudenterna ansåg att “metoder för engelskundervisning”, “innehåll” och “lektionsplanering” var de områden som hade blivit mest påverkade. Dessa resultat stämde med tidigare studier inom området.
