The Advantage of Exploiting Contrastive Analysis in Teaching and Learning a Foreign Language.
Sheen, Ronald
IRAL, v34 n3 p183-97 Aug 1996
Compared the results of the adult learning of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) using an inductive approach as opposed to a deductive one based on explicit contrastive analysis (CA) input. It is suggested that a deductive approach that uses CA input in EFL teaching and learning materials is more effective in minimizing error rates. (54 references) (Author/CK)
