Read the Book, See the Movie, Acquire More English

Films in English are extremely challenging for those studying English as a foreign language. In this study, an attempt was made to make an English film more comprehensible by asking subjects to read an abridged version of the novel the film was based on before seeing the film. Subjects reported that reading the book first increased comprehensibility of the film, but see the same film twice did not make it more understandable. (Contains 4 tables.)
