TYPEWRITING INSTRUCTION AS AN AID TO THE LEARNING OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. SUMMARY.
FIRST, RAMONA K.; MCLEOD, DORIS G.
A 12 WEEK COURSE IN TYPEWRITING WAS PREPARED FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS WHO MET UNIVERSITY LEVEL REQUIREMENTS IN THIS COUNTRY BUT WERE DEFICIENT IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS. FIFTEEN EXPERIMENTAL STUDENTS WHO COMPLETED THE COURSE WERE COMPARED WITH A CONTROL GROUP. THE UNIFORMITY OF THE STATISTICAL RESULTS IN FAVOR OF THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP OVER THE CONTROL GROUP LED TO THE CONCLUSION THAT TYPEWRITING INSTRUCTION CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY AS AN AID TO THE LEARNING OF ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. AT THE SAME TIME A USEFUL SKILL CAN BE GAINED.
