Abstract:The aim of this master’s thesis was to research the emphasis that is given on assimilating new vocabulary in the chosen textbooks, which were approved by the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and are currently being used to teach/learn English as a foreign language in the ninth grade of primary schools. In the theoretical part the focus has been given on different methods for learning or teaching new vocabulary, the appropriate amount of new vocabulary regarding the level of students’ language competences, the effect of methodology on vocabulary learning and communication, the role of repeating and refreshing of new vocabulary and the role of a textbook in foreign language learning. The empirical part of the thesis includes two separate analyses of the questionnaire conducted among ninth grade students and teachers of English as a foreign language in the ninth grade of primary school. 48 students and 73 teachers participated in the research. With the help of these analyses we tried to establish whether the texts in the chosen textbooks are authentic enough to enhance automatic learning of vocabulary, whether the method for expanding vocabulary, which was named as the most successful in the theory, is also used in the textbooks that were analyzed and whether the textbooks include sufficient exercises to assimilate and refresh new vocabulary. The research showed that the texts in the coursebooks are at least nearly authentic pieces of language according to students and teachers of English as a foreign language. However, slight adaptations of the texts are possible and also approved by the researches. One of the most successful methods for expanding vocabulary is, according to literature, reading. The analysis has also proven it in practice, since teachers named it as the most successful one. The results of the analysis showed that the textbooks include sufficient exercises to assimilate and refresh new vocabulary.

Title:Primerjava metod za širjenje besedišča v učbenikih za angleščino kot prvi tuji jezik
Abstract:Cilj tega magistrskega dela je bil raziskati kakšen je poudarek na usvajanju novega besedišča v izbranih učbenikih, kateri so potrjeni s strani Ministrstva za izobraževanje, znanost in šport in se trenutno uporabljajo za poučevanje angleščine kot tujega jezika v 9. razredu osnovne šole. V teoretičnem delu je poudarek na različnih metodah za učenje oz. poučevanje novega besedišča, na primerni količini novega besedišča glede na stopnjo jezikovnega znanja učencev, na vplivu metodologije na učenje besedišča in komunikacijo, na vlogi ponavljanja in utrjevanja novega besedišča in vlogi učbenika pri učenju tujega jezika. Empirični del naloge vključuje dve ločeni analizi ankete, katera je bila izvedena med učenci devetega razreda in učitelji angleščine kot tujega jezika v devetem razredu osnovne šole. 48 učencev in 73 učiteljev je sodelovalo v raziskavi. S pomočjo teh analiz smo poskusili ugotoviti ali so besedila v učbenikih dovolj avtentična, da spodbujajo avtomatično učenje besedišča, ali je metoda za širjenje besedišča, katera je v literaturi navedena kot najuspešnejša, uporabljena tudi v učbenikih in ali učbeniki vsebujejo dovolj vaj za utrjevanje in ponavljanje novega besedišča. Raziskava je pokazala, da so besedišča v učbenikih po mnenju učencev in učiteljev angleščine kot tujega jezika vsaj približno dovolj avtentična, da spodbujajo avtomatično učenje besedišča. Kljub temu so možne rahle prilagoditve, katere pa odobravajo tudi raziskovalci. Ena najuspešnejših metod za širjenje besedišča je, glede na literaturo, branje. Tudi analiza ankete je to pokazala v praksi, saj so učitelji ravno branje izbrali kot najučinkovitejšo metodo. Rezultati analize so pokazali, da učbeniki vsebujejo dovolj vaj za utrjevanje in ponavljanje novega besedišča.
