Abstract

One of the most important areas of current investigation in ESL and native speaker language research is the search for correlations between speaking and writing development. One can assume that the developmental relationship of these two skills is one of mutual dependence for literate adult second language learners. Yet, as many ESL teachers have observed, second language learners often have a markedly higher level of proficiency in one skill than the other. By determining the exact nature of the developmental relationship of oral and written language in second language learners, instructional programs can perhaps be designed to help students more effectively master these two skills.
