Do Boys and Girls Have Different Opinions about their Oral: English Education? A Sociolinguistic Investigation
Halmstad University, School of Teacher Education (LUT).
2005 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]
Many researchers, i.e. Bacon and Finneman (1992), Clark and Trafford (1995), Kobayashi (2002), Loulidi (1989), and Powell and Batters (1985), have introduced different investigations concerning boys’ and girls’ opinions on foreign language learning and the two genders different verbal abilities. The following essay is based on an investigation that deals with differences and similarities concerning how boys and girls feel about their education in oral English. The present researcher worked with a quantitative questionnaire that was answered by 66 student (23 boys and 43 girls) at an upper secondary school in the south of Sweden. The questionnaire dealt with different research areas, such as ‘English as an international language’, ‘differences between male and female interaction’, ‘students’ oral learning in the classroom’, and ‘foreign culture and society’. The results from the questionnaire show that there are both differences and similarities between how boys and girls perceive their education in oral English. The question one might ask is whether these differences/similarities are based on the students’ sincere feelings and opinions or on peer group identity and societal gender roles.
