    A quantitative study of Swedish students' opinions on speaking English in the classroom2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay is to investigate students' attitudes towards speaking English in the classroom, and their self-reported experiences of what affects their use of English during lessons. Questions inquired into are students' choice to speak English or not, and the relation between the students' level of oral proficiency and their gender, age and year. 127 students at an upper secondary school attending a vocational programme participated in the study where questionnaires were handed out. Results showed that the students are well aware of the opportunities that being a good speaker in English can bring as English is a lingua franca. Students also pointed out that a friendly and informal classroom is important in order to develop the skill of speaking. The amount of spoken English during lessons reported from the students proved not to be particularly high as 42% of the students claimed that they did not speak English during their lessons. 39% of the students claimed that they spoke English "more often than not". Only 18% of the students claimed that they spoke English during every English lesson. As reported in the students' responses, reasons for this are related to insecurity and fear of failure among the students. No major differences were found related to age or year. Significant differences related to gender were found in the students' answers where girls felt less comfortable to a higher extent than boys, depending on the group size in the classroom, although both boys and girls felt less comfortable the larger the group was in the classroom.

    Mental träning i Idrott och Hälsa: En kvalitativ studie om idrottslärares uppfattning av mental träning2010Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to research PE (Physical Education) teachers understanding of mental trainings use in their education.

    Six PE teachers were interviewed to create a broad vision of how mental training can be conducted in physical education. The PE teacher’s reflections and views on mental training are illuminated in this study. The interviews conducted have been of an unstructured nature. How mental training can be justified in physical education has been one of my questions. Furthermore, the PE teachers gave their views on how they work with mental training in physical education and what they think about what the future might look like for mental training in physical education. Six different teachers have been interviewed.

    The results which have arisen since the implementation of the study give examples of how mental training can be justified as part of physical education, as in form of visualization. The study shows that PE teachers use mental training in their teaching, for example through motivation, and how they motivate their pupil’s. However, some of the PE teachers use mental training more than others. Something that arose during the research was that the PE teachers had different views about the future of mental training in physical education.
