Field dependence, field independence, and second language acquisition

by Dai Yuncai  
Many studies have been carried out to investigate the relationship between Field independence/dependence (FI/D) and Second Language Acquisition (SLA) since 1973. But those research efforts offer mixed and somewhat inconsistent conclusions. In the light of the present uncertainties, two groups of subjects at different learning stages are investigated by means of quantitative and qualitative research. The quantitative research results suggest that FI/D is not significantly correlated with students' second language achievements in their secondary stage as a whole, but when male and female students are separately calculated, FI/D is significantly correlated with female students' language achievements. Nor is FI/D significantly correlated with students' second language achievements for all students in their tertiary stage except for listening achievements. Different from intermediate level students, when male and female students of this stage are separately calculated, FI/D is not yet significantly correlated with female students' language achievements, but it positively correlates with male students' listening achievements.
