  • Damaris Castro-García Universidad Nacional
Palabras clave: vocabulario, vocabulario receptivo, VLT, lectura, aprendizaje del inglés

Resumen

Se analiza la importancia del vocabulario receptivo y sus efectos en la comprensión de lectura. Se mide el conocimiento de vocabulario mediante la Prueba de Niveles de Vocabulario (a nivel de 2000 palabras), así como mediante una prueba de comprensión de lectura, donde el vocabulario aparece en contexto de lecturas. Se comparan los resultados de estudiantes de tres colegios con distintas metodologías. El análisis estadístico señala diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre los tres colegios y sobresalen los estudiantes que reciben enseñanza por contenidos.
