Abstract
This study investigated the effects of reading syntactically visualized text format on EFL learners reading comprehension. Visual-syntactic text formatting (VSTF) technology was used to analyze underlying English syntactic structures and transform linear text format into hierarchically structured format. Korean middle school students (Grade 8, n = 95) participated in this 15-week classroom experiment. A pretest-posttest analysis showed that VSTF groups had significantly higher scores on the reading comprehension test over controls who used linearly formatted conventional text (p < .01). This result was similar across low and high proficiency students. The results from the questionnaire demonstrated that VSTF groups were able to parse sentences into bigger chunks than controls at a statistically significant level at the level of .01. In addition, VSTF groups preferred VSTF reading and the reading instruction with it, believing that VSTF is helpful for improving their English reading skills.
