Example text

While all three of the studies described herein present evidence of a positive relationship between English use outside school and oral English proficiency, there are at least three qualifiers that need to be taken into account. First, although the development of L2 oral proficiency is likely aided by L2 use outside of school, it is not necessarily impeded by continued development and use of L1. Second, at higher levels of language and literacy development, English use outside of school may not be as critical as English use in school.

1983) found significant and positive rank-order correlations between increased L2 use and increased L2 oral proficiency. However, results suggest that while there may be a positive relationship between English use and oral gains, ELLs (particularly young ELLs) might benefit differentially from teacher and peer interlocutors depending on their level of L2 proficiency. 93). 83). Saville-Troike (1984) found positive and significant rank-order correlations between English use and oral proficiency among nineteen ELLs ranging in age from 7 to 12 (Grades 2–6).

And Saville-Troike studies, in particular, help unpack and also qualify the potential effects of L2 use. Johnson (1983) administered three oral language proficiency assessments to ELLs prior to and immediately following the five-week IEPT treatment: Language Assessment Scales (LAS), Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT), and the Child-Child Communication Test (CCCT). To investigate the relationship between the amount of interaction in English and growth in English proficiency, Johnson calculated partial correlations (controlling for pre-test) between post-test proficiency scores and measures of the frequency of ELLs’ interactions with FEPs.
