Extensive Reading in English as a Foreign Language.
Mason, Beniko; Krashen, Stephen
System, v25 n1 p91-102 Mar 1997
Overviews three experiments exploring the value of extensive reading in English as a foreign language for college students in Japan. Notes that in extensive reading, students do self-selected reading with minimal accountability, i.e. writing brief summaries or comments on what they have read. Findings reveal extensive reading to be superior to traditional approaches on measures of reading comprehension. (16 references) (Author/CK)
