dc.description.abstractHay una gran variedad de literatura que examina la conexión entre la lectura y la escritura y entre el habla y la compresión oral. Esta investigación se enfoca en examinar estrategias dirigidas a desarrollar la comunicación oral y escrita en adultos que estudian un segundo idioma. Se hizo una encuesta para ver si había una conexión entre el desarrollo de estas dos habilidades. 181 estudiantes de los primeros cuatro semestres de francés, italiano, portugués y español contestaron preguntas acerca de su medio de comunicación preferido, el enfoque de su clase, su personalidad, y el uso de estrategias comunicativas en su clase. La encuesta revela que hay una gran preferencia para la comunicación escrita que no está influida por el enfoque de la clase ni la personalidad. Los resultados de la encuesta de los profesores concuerdan que los estudiantes en sus primeros cuatro semestres de estudio de un segundo idioma suelen tener un poco más destreza en su comunicación escrita que en su comunicación oral.en
dc.description.abstractA variety of literature has been produced discussing the connection between reading—writing abilities and speaking—listening abilities. The current research examines techniques aimed directly at developing speaking and writing abilities in adult second language learners. A survey was conducted to query whether a relationship exists between the development of speaking and writing skills in adult second language learners. 181 students from the first four semesters of language study in French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish answered questions about their preferred method of communication, the focus of their class, their personality, and specific learning strategies used in their classes. The survey showed a marked preference for written communication over oral communication without regard to class focus or personality. Professor surveys concurred that students in the first four semesters of language study generally have slightly stronger writing skills than speaking skills.en
