ABSTRACT

Korean Semantics, 58. The purpose of this study is to find the effects of receptive language on productive language of Korean leaners. This study have carried out receptive proficiency test, speaking task and writing task against 68 foreign 2-6 level learners. The receptive language was divided into vocabulary, grammar, reading and listening comprehension sections. The productive language was measured by the lexical and syntactic output shown in speaking and writing. The results showed strong correlations among proficiency across receptive language and productive language. The result of multiple regression analysis shows that the most important receptive language factor affecting the production language was grammar. In addition to grammar knowledge, oral production is influenced by listening comprehension, and written production is influenced by reading comprehension. This study tells us that grammar knowledge is essential to improve Korean production.
