...And Then They Disbelieved Their Ears.
An analysis of the interrelationship of speaking and reading skills in second language acquisition is the object of an experiment described in this article. The hypothesis tested suggests that written stimuli have a negative influence on the formation of speech habits of beginning students. Objectives, methods, and subject and data selection are described. A table of results indicates significant change in subject behavior with the variation of stimuli, thereby supporting the author's hypothesis. (RL)
