Abstract

The goal of this study is to determine whether and how

Research Questions

1. Does oral repetition practice improve speakers' ability to produce fluent speech in terms of repetition time and number and kind of errors made?

2. How much are students able to monitor their own speech during this task, and does their ability to monitor help them improve their speech across attempts?

Background and Significance

To be added.

Procedure

In this task, students would hear a spoken Spanish sentence, then repeat it back. They would then translate the sentence into English (to the best of their ability) and rate how well they did in repeating the sentence back, on a scale from 1 to 7, 1 being the worst and 7 being the best. They heard each sentence four times, and thus had four opportunities to improve their speech for each sentence. A week late, they came back for a posttest, where they heard each sentence once.

Findings

To be added.
