English abstract
The aim of this project have been to investigate the different views on using music in the English lessons. For this study three different teachers from three different cities have been interviewed. We chose to interview two 4-6 teachers who both teach English. And one full time music teacher. The purpose of the interviews was to get a perspective on how English teachers work with music. In order to get a broader perspective on the teachers’ views regarding integration between English and music; a music teachers’ perspective was included. The interview questions can be found in the appendices. The results from the interviews show that all three teachers are positive to the thought of integrating music into the English lessons. They were also positive to integrating different subjects in general. They had different approaches and ways of using music, one of the teacher did not use music in her English lessons at all. But all in all they thought that through music the learners could develop their knowledge. Research studies and literature that promote the use of music in the English lessons has also been included. It is shown in the discussion section that the research found and the results collected from the interviews mostly agree with each other. A lot that was mentioned in the interviews was relatable to the literature we collected. As a conclusion for this study it is found to be no harm in using music in the English lessons and we agree on the fact that it should be practiced.
