Understanding Asian Graduate Students' English Literacy Problems
Wang, Ying; Martin, Michael A.; Martin, Sarah H.
College Teaching, v50 n3 p97-101 Sum 2002
This article describes three potential English literacy problem areas for Asian graduate students. The three areas are: (1) the influence of cultural and personal prior knowledge, (2) the processes of education that students learned in their native schools, and (3) the linguistic characteristics of ESL students. Instructional ideas are provided which can be useful in addressing these potential problem areas.
