Comprehension in the Second Language: How Do Students Learn?

Gino G. Sumalinog

Abstract: Comprehension in the second language is a skill that needs to be developed, so students can better understand texts in English. This study aimed to gauge the comprehension ability of the 90 BSED English students and discover a comprehension strategy that worked best for them. The study used a quantitative-qualitative research design through One-Factor ANOVA and a focus group discussion. The instrument used was an adapted comprehension questionnaire prepared in three versions: texts for reading, listening, and viewing comprehension test. After intensive analysis with the inclusion of the Tukey Post Hoc Analysis, results showed that the 3 strategies were significantly different from one another. It showed that students got higher scores with the use of the viewing strategy because they could read the texts and watch the events of the piece. The reading strategy fell on the second rank while listening strategy appeared to be less preferred by the students.
