Title Vad kan vi lära oss av berättelser? De fiktivas funktion i svenska som främmande språk
Author(s) Källström, Lisa
Date 2011
English abstract
What can we learn from fiction? In this article, I discuss this question from an ethnographic point of view. With the two notions intertextuality and the foreign as a starting point, I show how an idyllic view of Sweden affects two students, Hanna and Åsa, studying Swedish as a foreign language as part of their studies in Scandinavistics. The two students are familiar with the German culture and well aware of the legends and the myths about Sweden which are distributed via German media. At the same time, they are shaping new images of Sweden in the didactic interaction with the teachers. The study indicates that the encounter with a foreign culture requires readiness to question even what seems to be self-evident. Hence, the study proposes an intertextual approach when using texts for studies in foreign languages. Only through a shift of perspectives are we able to see the world from a different angle.
