Fine Brush and Freehand: The Vocabulary-Learning Art of Two Successful Chinese EFL Learners.
Gu, Peter Yongqi
TESOL Quarterly, v37 n1 p73-104 Spr 2003
Describes the English vocabulary learning strategies of two successful language learners in the "input-poor" environment of the Chinese classroom, where the majority of language learning comes from intensive reading of English texts. Results show that, contrary to popular ideas about vocabulary learning in the West, Chinese learners succeed through intensive, explicit study of lists of vocabulary words. (Author/VWL)
