Visual Aids and Language Learning: An Experimental Study.
Tong, John S.
This study explores the effect of visual stimuli on second language vocabulary development. An experiment performed at Georgetown University postulates the hypothesis that concrete target words learned through translation and visual aids should offer better learning than the same words learned through translation alone. Findings are determined through a comparison of the immediate memory span of the two randomly selected groups of students. Methods, scores, and results are discussed. Concluding remarks focus on the value of audiovisual aids in language instruction. (RL)
