Reading for Asian Students.
Lee, Grace E.
Asian students trying to learn to read English can best be assisted by receiving a strong oral language enrichment experience. An important part of language learning and of learning to read is experiential development; therefore, providing opportunities to experience the culture and geography of America can be an important part of teaching reading. Linguistic and affective development are also significant. A student who likes the people of the second language country and who senses positiveness, sensitivity, and support from the teacher is apt to be motivated to learn to read the language. Asian students especially encounter certain linguistic difficulties which hamper learning the language. Some of those difficulties are beginning consonants, consonant blends, certain final sounds, particular diagraphs such as "th" and "gh," changing pronunciations of the same vowel combination, and syntactical rules.
