A Study of the use of spell and grammar checkers in texts by SLA students in Sweden

  • Henrietta Carolsson Godolakis


Apart from Swedish and English, all Swedish students have the opportunity to study at least one more foreign language in school, Spanish being one of those. As expressed in the curriculum of languages, the students should develop comprehensive communicative skills. This involves receptive skills, as well as productive and interactive skills. Furthermore, the students should be given the opportunity to develop strategies in order to support their communication and to solve problems caused by their limited proficiency. The teaching should enable the students to speak, interact and write with the support of different means and media.
