ABSTRACT

The present study examined reading variables which influence English word reading of Korean second graders who are learning English words. Forty four of children divided into two groups(High and Low of Hangul reading skill). In experiment 1, Hangul word naming speed predicted reading skill of High group, and Hangul phonemic segmentation and alphabet letter-sound fluency predicted reading skill of Low group. In experiment 2, Hangul word naming speed and alphabet letter-name fluency predicted High group. Hangul phoneme segmentation and alphabet letter-sound fluency predicted Low group. These results suggest that Korean second grader's Hangul reading skill related with acquisition of English word reading skill, and variables that predict children's English reading skill are different according to the level of Hangul reading skill.
