Giới thiệu

WITHIN THE FIELD OF COMPUTER ASSISTED LANGUAGE LEARNING (CALL), SCANT LITERATURE EXISTS REGARDING THE EFFECTIVENESS AND PRACTICALITY FOR SECONDARY STUDENTS TO UTILIZE DATA-DRIVEN LEARNING (DDL) FOR VOCABULARY ACQUISITION. IN THIS STUDY, THERE WERE 100 PARTICIPANTS, WHO HAD A MEAN AGE OF THIRTEEN YEARS, AND WERE ATTENDING AN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL IN HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM. THIS PARTICULAR MILIEU UNSURPRISINGLY COMPRISED ‘THIRD CULTURE KIDS’ (TCKS) AND ‘CROSS-CULTURAL KIDS’ (CCKS). THEY WERE ASSIGNED TO A CONTROL AND EXPERIMENTAL GROUP; BOTH HAD SEVERAL INTENSIVE WEEKS OF ONLINE-DICTIONARY LEARNING TRAINING, WHILE THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP ALSO EXPERIENCED INTENSIVE DDL TRAINING. THIS WAS DONE PRIOR TO THE START OF THE EIGHT-WEEK LONGITUDINAL STUDY. MAJOR FINDINGS INCLUDED A SIGNIFICANT LONGITUDINAL MAIN EFFECT FOR BOTH GROUPS, SIGNIFICANTLY OVERALL HIGHER RESULTS FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP THAN THE CONTROL, AND A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE AMONG SUBJECTS’ GRADE LEVEL WAS DISCOVERED. FURTHERMORE, THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP EXHIBITED A SIGNIFICANTLY MARKED INCREASE IN VOCABULARY RESULTS IN THE LATER WEEKS OF THE EXPERIMENT. IN GENERAL, THESE RESULTS SHOW THAT DDL CAN BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (EFL) CONTEXT AND THAT IT PROMOTES SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER VOCABULARY ACQUISITION WHEN USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH ONLINE-DICTIONARY VOCABULARY LEARNING METHODS, ESPECIALLY FOR A SUSTAINED LONGITUDINAL PERIOD OF TIME.
