Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to investigate teachers’, students’ and researchers’ opinions on the idea of using literature to motivate students into learning grammar. How is and how could authentic texts be used in grammar teaching?

My research is based on a questionnaire given to 23 students at an upper secondary school after participating in a lesson constructed to try out the essay thesis. The essay is also based on literature on the subject and three personal interviews.

The students were very positive towards the idea and stated that it would feel more real to be taught grammar from real texts. The teachers did not want to teach grammar sections as before. Instead they choose to use a more individual response strategy which they feel gives better results. The idea of giving individual response as a way of grammar teaching is also advocated in the background. The idea of using real texts instead of a textbook is given both positive and negative credit.
