ABSTRACT

This research aims to find out the effects of three different presentation methods of English storybooks on young EFL learners' vocabulary, comprehension, and recall performance, and how they are influenced by their age. Twenty-four, 4-year-old EFL learners and twenty-one, 5-year-olds, participated in this research and they were divided into three different presentation methods of English storybooks which are frequently used with young EFL learners. These presentation methods include picture, flannel board, and role plays. Findings indicate that the flannel board method enhanced the young EFL learners’ vocabulary, comprehension, and recall ability the most for both age groups. However, when comparing the results according to age groups, both age groups obtained the results differently from the young EFL learners’ vocabulary, comprehension, and recall ability. This research suggested that providing flannel board materials with lesson plans as supplements to English storybooks by publishers or R&D companies could be an effective English learning facilitation for young EFL learners. More detailed results and discussions will be given for English teachers and further potential researches.
