Chinese L1 Schoolchildren Reading in English: The Effects of Rhetorical Patterns.
Sharp, Alastair
Reading in a Foreign Language, v14 n2 Oct 2002
Describes an experiment in which rhetorically different texts, with identical subject matter were read by 490 Hong Kong Chinese school children, studying in English as a Second Language. Comprehension was measured by a cloze procedure and by recall protocols. Results showed a clear difference in comprehension between the text types and suggests that pedagogical support to increase awareness of rhetorical patterns would be beneficial. (Author/VWL)
