English abstract
This research study investigates what 122 secondary students believe makes a good teacher of English as a second language. The students were randomly selected from three different schools in Malmö, Sweden. Six teachers’ views from the same schools will also be examined. The teachers and students answered questionnaires with open-ended and close-ended questions. Many researchers state that there are particular qualities that a teacher should possess to be considered a good teacher by the students. Qualities such as: being understanding, having a certain personality, being a motivator and a supporter, mastering the English language well, and listening to students wishes, are a few of many qualities that are being mentioned. The results indicate that the main quality that a teacher should possess is good knowledge of English. Other qualities that were mentioned were, varying work methods, the teacher’s personality, being supportive and encouraging ect. The students and the teachers opinions in comparison to what the researchers argue are not tremendously different.
