At What Rate Do Learners Learn and Retain New Vocabulary from Reading a Graded Reader?
Waring, Rob; Takaki, Misako
Reading in a Foreign Language, v15 n2 Oct 2003
Examined the rate at which vocabulary was learned from reading the 400 headword graded reader "A Little Princess." To ascertain whether words of different frequency of occurrence were more likely to be learned and retained or forgotten, 25 words within five bands of differing frequency of occurrence were selected. Results show words can be learned incidentally, but that most of the words were not learned. (Author/VWL)
