Study Skills and Foreign Languages: A Study of How To Strengthen Study Skills through the Foreign Language Disciplines.
Wenthold, Mireya Bernal-Greco
A study investigated the effectiveness of general study skill enhancement on the learning of a second language. Subjects were high school students deficient in study skills. They were enrolled in an after-school cooperative study skill tutorial program. After diagnostic screening, students completed the intensive tutorial program using selected materials developed by the teacher. On completion of the program, the students were tested again, and parents and students were surveyed concerning program participation and results. Student skills and attitudes were found to have improved. Both students and parents made favorable comments about the tutoring. Two additional indicators of program success were increased attendance and better grades. It is concluded that teachers and educators should learn new methods of literacy education to help students attain excellence in native language study skills before learning a foreign language. Program materials and evaluation instruments are appended. (MSE)
