Abstract [en]

This study investigates which factors Swedish upper secondary students believe affect their learning and their results the most in the subject English. Students’ beliefs of what could benefit their learning were also investigated. Methods used in the study include focus groups and surveys. Results show that English outside of school, motivation, interest, previous experience, expectations, peer influence, effort, instructional context and the teacher are some of the factors that the participating students believe affect them the most. Regarding their test results most students attribute both positive and negative test results to their own effort. In the investigation it was also found that most students could reflect on their own learning and possible improvements in the classroom. Among the students there were three parts of the subject that most students would like to see improved: the interaction, the teacher and the type of tasks and exercises they work with.
