Abstract [en]

The present paper explores the views and experiences of fifteen CLIL students at three Swedish upper secondary schools studying content through the medium of English. It forms part of an on-going licentiate thesis investigation in which CLIL teachers' perspectives are being studied through teacher interviews combined with classroom observations. The focus group interviews with students, which were recorded and transcribed, followed an interview guide. The focus group format yielded rich interaction between participants, both from a researcher-student perspective as well as in terms of student-student interaction. The focus group interviews with the students resulted in rich data consisting of students' descriptions of their encounter with English as medium of instruction, their motives for choosing a CLIL study programme and their strategies for learning successfully through CLIL. The results of the NVivo qualitative content analyses confirm findings of previous studies (e.g. Yoximer Paulsrud, 2014 forthcoming), with some exceptions.
