MetadataShow full item record
The main purpose of this study was to determine whether using music in second language acquisition faciliated the recall of the correct pronunciation of certain sounds of German. It further attempted to investigate whether music could serve as a vehicle in second language acquisition. Sixteen students, all enrolled in two Elementary German classes at Carthage College, Kenosha, Wisconsin, during the spring term of the academic year 1996/1997 participated in this investigation. Subjects of the experiment were divided into a Control Group and a Treatment Group. The independent variable was a Music/No Music Treatment. At-test was performed to test the null hypothesis at a .05 significance level, as is commonly used for education purposes.
