Receptividad al aprendizaje de grupos nominales en inglés según el nivel MCERL

Ana Luz Rubio Moreda


The aim of this study is to find out whether the explicit teaching of nominal groups (NG) in English for Science and Technology (EST), helps its acquisition by Spanish engineering students with different English level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). For this purpose, a ‘noticing’ methodological approach was designed and tested with a sample of different CERFL level students. Results were statistically analysed to check on its efficiency, reaching the conclusion that in order to acquire such linguistic feature a threshold level of independent user B1 is required, with evidence of a progressive improvement as users reach C1 competent level, but decreasing as the NG becomes more complex.
