Improving Reading Skills for ESL Learners Using SoundSpel, pp.215-228 $100.00
Authors:  Michael D. Young, Michelle L. Wilson, and Alice F. Healy, University of Colorado
This study examined the effects of using a revised, transparent spelling system SoundSpel, a
phonetic reading tool, with learners of English as a Second Language. During 6 training
sessions, 12 participants used unaltered material and 12 used SoundSpel texts, in parallel with
standard English, when reading American elementary school material. They then answered
multiple-choice comprehension questions. Both groups were pre-tested and post-tested on
comprehension tests of similar elementary school material without SoundSpel. No group
differences were found across tests or training (in quiz performance or reading time),
suggesting no beneficial or harmful effects from using SoundSpel. A post hoc analysis
suggested that SoundSpel would be most beneficial for students who learn to speak English
before they learn to read it.
