Grammar in practice : Study about High School Students' Ablility to Apply Grammar in Oral Communication (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper sets out to examine to what extent French grammar teaching contributes to the students’ practical, oral skills. Are the students familiar with the grammatical system without knowing how to apply it orally in practice? The paper contains a theoretical background and an empirical survey. One quantitative and one qualitative method have been applied in the survey. 52 questionnaires have been completed and 6 High School students’ interviews have been carried out. Only 15 % of the surveyed students state that they completely approve with the statement that they can apply their grammatical knowledge in oral production. This shows that the teaching of grammar seems to contribute to the students’ oral skills to a relatively small extent. The result also suggests that there is a larger emphasis on theoretical explanations than on practice in grammar teaching. One of the problems seems to be that the practicing of grammar mainly is in written form. To reach the aims for communicative skills set in the syllabi for modern languages a functional method is suggested, which emphasises on meaning and includes oral practice of grammar.

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete syftar till att undersöka i hur stor utsträckning grammatikundervisningen i franska bidrar till elevernas muntliga, praktiska, förmåga. Är eleverna förtrogna med det grammatiska systemet i franska utan att kunna tillämpa det muntligt i praktiken? Uppsatsen innehåller en teoretisk bakgrund samt en empirisk undersökning. En kvantitativ och en kvalitativ metod har tillämpats i den empiriska undersökningen. 52 enkäter har besvarats och 6 djupintervjuer med gymnasieelever i franska har genomförts. Enkätresultaten visade att endast 15 % av de tillfrågade instämde helt i påståendet att de kunde tillämpa grammatiska kunskaper i muntlig produktion. Grammatikundervisningen verkar således bidra till elevernas muntliga förmåga i relativt liten grad. Resultaten talar också för att teoretiska förklaringar ges större utrymme än praktiken i grammatikundervisningen. Ett problem tycks vara att praktiken av grammatiken huvudsakligen sker skriftligt. För att uppnå den kommunikativa förmåga kursplanerna i moderna språk eftersträvar föreslås en funktionell metod där meningsskapande står i fokus och den muntliga praktiken av grammatiken inte förbises.
