Sammanfattning (abstract):
In a recent large-scale, longitudinal research project, CLIL and non-CLIL students were followed throughout their three years at upper secondary level in Sweden, and a number of various studies from different perspectives, primarily focusing on students’ development in their L1 Swedish, and their L2/FL English, were carried out. In order to investigate the role of individual differences in the form of learner beliefs, four students (two male and two female) were involved in the qualitative sub study focused on in this paper, which was guided by the following research questions: 1. Is it possible to use a camera to capture individuals’ views of and feelings and beliefs about languages? 2. Are there differences in results between students in CLIL and non-CLIL contexts? 3. Are there differences in results between genders? The participants were asked to take photos illustrating first, their L1, and second, the L2/FL English. They submitted between 15 and 50 photos each, which were thematically organized. Subsequently, an interview on a one-to-one basis took place with each one of the four informants. The interviews lasted between 30 minutes and two hours. During the interviews, the thematic organization and the photos themselves were discussed. Analyses were inspired by grounded theory; a thematic ordering of the photos in combination with the transcripts from the interviews was done until saturation was reached. Preliminary findings reveal affirmative answers to all three RQs. This paper will discuss these results, and the pedagogical implications they may entail.
