ABSTRACT

In this study, I conducted a verification experiment with 31 Chinese Korean learners to test whether the reading comprehension ability of Korean students can be explained by Gough and Tunmer's (1986) model of reading, the Simple View of Reading (SVR). There are two key aspects of SVR. First, reading comprehension can be divided into decoding and linguistic comprehension, and the lack of either means that reading comprehension will not progress. Second, D x L, the product of decoding and linguistic comprehension has a significant predictive power for reading comprehension. To test this model, in this study, vocabulary recognition ability and listening comprehension ability were assessed as measures of decoding skills and linguistic comprehension ability. The study results are as follows. First, the correlation analysis indicated that linguistic comprehension and decoding skills were significantly correlated with reading comprehension. Second, D x L showed the strongest correlation with reading comprehension and had a stronger predictive power for reading comprehension than the power of decoding or linguistic comprehension. Lastly, because of all the experiment participants being adult learners, linguistic comprehension carries more weight for reading comprehension than decoding skills. Therefore, the SVR reading model can be applied to explain Korean learners' reading comprehension abilities. Furthermore, though this verification experiment, a new perspective on the Korean learners' reading comprehension ability is provided.
