Compares English-text reading speeds and oral-reading quality ratings of American university students to three groups of adult Asian English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) college students in America. Finds that, at least concerning Chinese or Korean, differences in EFL word reading were associated less with type of first-language orthography than with history of exposure to English. (RS)
