Event Title

P-26 AZBIO Sentence Accuracy of English as a Second Language (ESL) Adults in Quiet and Noisy Environments

Start Date

Description

The objective of this study is to examine indications of a significant difference between native English speakers and ESL students’ listening ability in quiet and noisy environments, specifically on the AZBIO Sentence test. Three Language groups were analyzed: Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish. AZBIO lists were used to assess ESL students’ ability to repeat sentences. An analysis of errors was completed to determine variance and similarities between the four Language groups. Native English speakers had no difficulty repeating sentences in either condition, while ESL students’ data suggested more difficulty with longer sentences and the need for extra time to complete the tasks.
