Halmstad University.
(English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how subtitles might affect students understanding of spoken English. A comparison was made between four classes at Polhemskolan, an upper secondary school in Lund, Sweden. Each class was shown two different scenes from the movies …And Justice for All and The Verdict. Two of the classes were shown the scenes with subtitles and the remaining two without subtitles. During the test the students also filled out a questionnaire with questions about the information disclosed in the scenes. The students’ results were discussed with the help of the Acquisition and Learning theory and different theories dealing with listening comprehension.
