Abstract

This experiment, on the method of teaching English for left brain dominated engineering college students, was carried out through two groups, the experimental group which was composed of the engineering college students and the controlled group. The experimental group undertook dictogloss tasks in English class during the period of eight weeks from July to August, 2008. As a result, the effect of learning on experimental group showed significantly being high compared to that of the controlled group in the TOEIC test, an English ability test. This means that dictogloss is an effective learning activity which can be used in English class for left brain dominated engineering college students, and more improvement in English ability can be expected when appropriate levels and durations to learners are applied.
