EFL Optimal Exposure Density
Message 1: EFL Optimal Exposure Density
From: Arash Behazin <arashbehazinyahoo.com>
Subject: EFL Optimal Exposure Density
Greetings from Tehran the capital city of Iran. My name is Arash Behazin. I
am a PhD candidate at the University of Esfahan.
I have been studying the effects of 5 different exposure densities, namely
Low Exposure Density (LED), Mid-Low Exposure Density (MLED), Mid Exposure
Density (MED), Mid-High Exposure Density (MHED) and High Exposure Density
(HED) on learning and retention of a number of vocabulary and structure
items defined as the target EFL knowledge in
Density of exposure is also defined as the amount of exposure (or the
number of formal instruction sessions) per a unit of time (a week).
The assessment tasks have been of two types of recognition and written
production. The results have been interesting so far in answering one of
the questions of my research; ''If there is an optimal density exposure
band within which EFL learners' performance is enhanced?''
I would like to seek your support to access the related literature on the
theoretical issues of ''Human's limited mental capacity'' and the relevant
literature of the ''Exposure'' in EFL.
Thank you very much in advance, and all the best regards!
