Request Description

Theorists agree that extensive reading is essential for the development of reading comprehension. Extensive reading, obviously, requires learning to read. Our text lists five stages in the process of learning to read.Does the process of learning to read English as a second language differ from learning to read in another language?  If so, how does it differ?

Solution Description

 Many theorists have different opinions reading language acquisition. Krahsen believes that all people acquire language in the same manner regardless of their native language.

However, I don’t believe that students can learn to read and write in their native language by studying a foreign language. For example English is is written from left to right while Arabic is from right to left.

There are certain letters in the Arabic alphabet that are nonexistent in the English language and so if a native English speaker were to start learning Arabic, they would have a difficult time with pronunciation.
