What Do Foreign Language Learners Do in Their Academic Reading?
Cheng, Liying
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v7 n2 p279-96 Dec 1996
Summarizes research findings on academic reading obtained from a questionnaire, two sets of reading tests, and a textbook analysis. Results reveal that the essential reading skills required of foreign language learners and those giving them the most difficulty in their academic studies are skimming, reading more slowly to extract relevant information, and understanding unknown words.
