Abstract [en]

This study examines how frequently and in what situations English is used by Swedish as tuition for immigrants (SFI) teachers in Swedish-as-foreign-language (SFL) teaching. Furthermore, it examines the teachers’ reason for and views on the use of English in the SFL classroom. The data consists of classroom observation of two teachers’ classes in four introductory SFL courses as well as teacher interviews. The results revealed that the teachers use English frequently in their classroom for similar reasons. Moreover, the teachers consider that English should be used in the SFL classrooms because it is a meaningful tool that facilitates SFL teaching.
