The Effect of Decoding Abilities in L1 Swedish on ESL Learning
Halmstad University, School of Teacher Education (LUT).

Abstract [en]
Research findings suggest that students who have diffiulty learning a second language have a weakness in reading andwritten native language skills. These weaknesses involve understanding the phonological and syntacical codes of language. Recent material suggests that people mith dyslexia/reading and writing disabilities have some kind of deficiency in their phonological system. The aim of the current study was to investigate if there exists a relationship between decoding skills in L1 Swedish and the knowledge of English as a second language. For this purpse a correlation was conducted between the results of 285 subjects on a Swedish word decoding test and three different parts of a National Test of English. The results showed that there in fact exists a significant positive correlation between the decoding test and all three parts of the National test. In a second step of analysis two groups were formed and compared. The NPDT group Not Passing Decoding Test) achieved lower results and had a higer failure percentage on all parts of the National Test than the PDT group (Passing Decoding Test). The research findings in thi study further strengthen the Linguistic Coding Difference Hypothesis proposed Sparks and Ganschow.
