Learning from Graded Readers.
Wodinsky, Marilyn; Nation, Paul
Reading in a Foreign Language, v5 n1 p155-61 Fall 1988
A word frequency study of two graded readers and an unsimplified text indicated that graded readers facilitated better foreign-language reading and vocabulary learning than did unsimplified texts. It was found that students needed to read several same-level texts to master vocabulary, and that vocabulary mastery was not necessary for successful reading at the next higher level. (Author/CB)
