AN EXPLORATORY INVESTIGATION OF "SENSORY IMAGE TYPES" IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING. FINAL REPORT.
BAUER, ERIC W.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO INVESTIGATE THE POSSIBILITY OF THE EXISTENCE OF DIFFERENT SENSORY-IMAGE TYPES IN LANGUAGE LEARNING. A GENERAL QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED WHICH INCLUDED QUESTIONS ON VISUAL AND AUDITORY IMAGERY. THIS WAS ADMINISTERED TO 50 COLLEGE FRESHMEN AND NEWLY ARRIVED AIRMEN AT THE AIR FORCE LANGUAGE SCHOOL LOCATED AT INDIANA UNIVERSITY. FROM THIS GROUP, 18 SUBJECTS WERE SELECTED AND CLASSIFIED INTO FOUR SENSORY-IMAGE, OR LEARNING, TYPES--AUDITORY, PICTORIAL, COMBINED (AUDITORY PLUS VERBAL IMAGE), AND AUDIO-PICTORIAL-VERBAL IMAGE. SEPARATE TEACHING PRESENTATIONS OF THE SAME VOCABULARY AND DIALOGS IN ELEMENTARY GERMAN WERE PREPARED FOR EACH LEARNING TYPE. PRE- AND POST-TESTING WERE COMPLETED ONLY FOR THE FRESHMEN (11). RESULTS INDICATED PICTORIAL PREFERENCE LEARNERS ACHIEVED THE SAME UNDER BOTH THE AUDIO AND PICTORIAL MODE. COMBINED PREFERENCE TYPES SHOWED SLIGHT, BUT INCONCLUSIVE, GREATER LEARNING FROM THE PICTORIAL LEARNING MODE. PURELY AUDIO OR GRAPHIC LEARNER GROUPS COULD NOT BE ESTABLISHED. RESULTS WERE INCONCLUSIVE CONCERNING THE AUDIO MODE. COMPLETE DISCUSSION OF THE STATISTICAL DATA WAS GIVEN AND EVALUATED FOR EACH OF THE 11 FRESHMAN SUBJECTS. (AL)
