Abstract [en]

This essay seeks to show how different methods of teaching can be applied and used in Swedish schools in order to work against stereotypical thinking towards varieties of the English language. The aim is to investigate in what ways, and with what methods, one can deal with language variation in order to help prevent prejudiced and stereotypical thinking and, by finding these methods, show how they can be applied to the Swedish educational system while still complying with Swedish conditions and the current curriculum. Through a critical literary review of scholarly studies, opinions and results were examined and compared to each other in order to find different methods and ways of teaching against preconceptions. The analysis indicates that there has not been much research done regarding how Swedish teachers should or could teach language variations in order to discourage stereotypical thinking, but that research has been done by scholars with English as their mother tongue, with the intention of showing teachers with English as a second language how they should approach language variation to work against prejudiced thinking. Most of the methods found can be applied to Swedish schools but as English culture is limited in Sweden, schools may have to, for example, rely on educational material that sometimes might be considered stereotypical.
