Abstract [en]

The aim of the project was to find out if there are any differences between the gender of the students regarding questions asked in the classroom and the answers to those questions. The study aimed to see if there were any differences regarding what types of questions were being asked (student-to-teacher and teacher-to-student), and which language, English or Swedish, was being used. To answer these questions, three 7th grade classes in Sweden were observed two times each, each observation was 15 minutes long and all observations took place in the beginning of class.

This is a small study, but the results regarding what language is used in the classroom show that the language used most when the students and teachers are asking questions is Swedish rather than English. Also, the numbers from the observations show that there is no big difference between boys and girls regarding questions and answers in the classroom, but the boys are a bit more active when it comes to asking and answering questions.
