Comparing the Strategy Use in Two Different Language Environments
Rita Berry, University of Exeter, United Kingdom
This is a report of an on-going project which investigates the way second
language learners make use of their learning environment to improve their
English. In order to achieve this purpose, two secondary schools from different
language learning contexts will be used, one representing the rich (UK)
and the other the less rich (Hong Kong) language environment.
There are two phases to this investigation. The first phase, which
was carried out in the UK, has already been completed. This paper will
report on the research procedures and the strategies identified in the
first phase, followed by a discussion of the research plan for the second
phase during which the audience is invited to participate. It is planned
that the investigation will be extended to other language environments
such as the under-resourced ones.
