The subject of my study comprises pupils in their seventh year of comprehensive school.The objective of the study is to find out their command of the Finnish vocabulary.For this study, we have chosen 12 schools in different parts of Swedish-speaking Finland, both in areas with a very strong Swedish majority and in bilingual areas.We can then draw conculusions on the ability of Swedish-speaking pupils who are primarily dependent on the formal school teaching to learn the Finnish vocabulary.
