Journal of the First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, v13 n2 p75-93 Fall 2001
Investigated diversity in English-language competence of first-year students at an Australian university and the impact of language diversity and English-language competence on academic performance. Found that 76 percent of diverse students, compared to 20 percent of local Australian students, had English-language difficulties. When language competence was linked to average academic results, no significant differences were found between groups. (EV)
