This paper analyzes the BICS and CALP level of the GoodStuff coursebook series used in the Swedish middle school. While many Swedish students are familiar with the informal, everyday English from the television and other media sources, more formal varieties of the language are less well known. In order to progress towards more advanced studies, students need to be introduced to more formal and less contextualized language. Using the BICS and CALP framework, this paper shows that there is indeed a progression towards more cognitively demanding and less contextualized texts in coursebooks aimed at successive grades in the Swedish middle school.
