Finesse de perception et acquisition du langage (The Finesse of Perception and Acquisition of Language).
Pons-Ridler, Suzanne; And Others
This study focused on auditory perception, or phonetic discrimination, in foreign language learning. Subjects of the study were English-speakers (n=35) learning French. Researchers measured subjects' auditory sensibility, comparing it with progress in phonetic discrimination during the school year. Progress in the latter was measured by both a phonetics test and a placement test given at the end of the school year. (SR)
