Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to investigate sixth form students’ pronunciation, and their

exposure to English during their English lessons in school. The focus of the study is to

investigate whether or not the students have problems with pronouncing the contrastive

consonant phonemes that do not exist, or are rarely used in the Swedish language

(i.e /z/).

In order to investigate the students’ pronunciation, questionnaires were handed out,

followed by a reading exercise that was recorded. Also, a questionnaire was handed out

to the students’ teachers in order to investigate their thoughts about the importance of

teaching pronunciation. The participating students and teachers in this essay were

chosen from a school in the south-west part of Sweden.

The results in this essay show that the majority of the students participating had

difficulties pronouncing the English consonant phonemes which do not exist, or are

rarely used, in Swedish i.e /z/, /tʃ/ and /dʒ/. Furthermore, the results in this essay show

that the students are more likely to pronounce English words with consonant phonemes

similar to those used in Swedish.
