Voices from the Classroom: Intermediate-Level French Students Favor Extensive Reading Over Grammar and Give Their Reasons.
Dupuy, Beatrice C.
Applied Language Learning, v8 n2 p285-93 1997
Surveyed 49 intermediate-level French-as-a-Foreign-Language college students to determine whether they preferred extensive reading or grammar instruction for language acquisition and practice, and why. Students overwhelmingly preferred reading as more pleasurable and more beneficial for language acquisition. They considered grammar instruction dull with small, short-lived effects. (SM)
