Cruz, Selwyn A.; Pariña, Jose Cristina M.
Online Submission, Philippine ESL Journal v18 p73-85 Feb 2017
Stemming from issue of migration for education, the study explored the language learning experience of Korean university students who come to the Philippines for education. Specifically, it documented the changes in the students' implicit and explicit knowledge that occurred in the preactional until the actional phase of their learning journey in a study abroad context. Using a free written task and a grammaticality judgment test, the study found that majority of the learners was able to access their implicit knowledge for free production tasks and their explicit knowledge for grammaticality judgment tests. The said findings confirm the effectiveness of Ellis' (2005) instruments in measuring implicit and explicit knowledge and the existence of the said types of knowledge. It was also found that statistically, the differences were significant but not correlated.
