Abstract:Both students demonstrated use of reading strategies. Unfamiliarity with vocabulary and genre seemed to hinder their comprehension, and the expository text was more difficult for them. The students' English oral language and literacy abilities showed a negative relationship, where oral proficiency did not lead to literacy acquisition in the second language. Alp lacked phonological awareness, over-relied on word memorization strategies and remained a poor reader and writer in both languages. Prior experience with metalinguistic tasks in Turkish seemed to provide Zehra with the skills necessary for initial literacy acquisition in both languages.
