Department of English, NTNU
This study examines the effect of onset age on the English proficiency university students in Taiwan. Two thousand three hundred and twenty students from National Taiwan University participated in this research. Their test scores on high-intermediate level listening and reading comprehension tests of GEPT as well as their English learning history were analyzed. Results indicate that university students who started learning English in primary school performed better than thosestarted in junior high school. However, there are no differences between those who started in kindergarten and those who started in the first three years of primary school. Results from multiple regression analyses show that the total time of English learning contributes most to the learning outcome. Besides, it is found that students from metropolitan areas did better than those who were not both in reading and listening comprehension.
