The present study aims to investigate Swedish learners’ knowledge of English grammar. The investigation is based on an English translation test and a questionnaire given to 60 students in four upper secondary schools. Four error types were chosen to be investigated in the study: prepositions, concord with lexical items, tense, generic use of zero article. Moreover, individual differences such as motivation and attitudes to English studies and especially grammar were looked at to see how these will affect the result. Finally, gender differences were also investigated.
