A language course abroad – does it make a difference? : Four individuals’ experience of the impact of language courses abroad on their career choice (English)
Abstract [en]

The objective of the study is to examine whether the experience from language courses abroad has had any impact on the career choices for four individuals. Based on a qualitative research methodology, four semi-structured interviews have been executed. The two research questions have been answered by letting four people recount their experiences from language courses abroad linked to their self-images and career choices. The outcome is that the experiences from the language courses contributed to a more or less altered self-image. Most of all, the interpersonal abilities were fostered, which led to the formation of a self-image characterized by improved confidence in social settings. The four individuals’ self-images have then impacted their career choices, however in different ways. The perceptions of their own abilities have played an important role in their choices of career paths.

Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att undersöka om fyra individers upplevelser av språkresan har haft betydelse för deras karriärval. Utifrån en kvalitativ forskningsmetod har fyra semistrukturerade intervjuer genomförts. Genom att låta fyra personer berätta om sina upplevelser av språkresan kopplade till deras självbilder och karriärval har studiens två forskningsfrågor kunnat besvaras. Resultatet visar att upplevelserna av språkresan bidrog till en mer eller mindre förändrad självbild hos dessa personer. Framför allt främjades den sociala utvecklingen, vilken medförde att en självbild kännetecknad av högre tilltro till sig själv i sociala sammanhang formades. De fyra personernas självbilder har i sin tur påverkat deras karriärval, om än på olika sätt. Bilden om den egna förmågan har spelat en viktig roll i val av karriärbana.
