DDL meta analysis

Last month some PPT slides on a meta analysis of DDL by Thomas Cobb and Alex Boulton were uploaded to the Lextutor FB group. (h/t MuraNava)

You can peruse the slides yourself, but one of the findings I found interesting was that while the best results seemed to be concentrated in learners of intermediate to advanced proficiency, lower proficiency learners also had generally good results, suggesting educators don’t need to be afraid of introducing DDL techniques with those lower proficiency learners.

For comparison with some older work, here are links to a preliminary meta analysis investigation by Cobb and Boulton; and a meta analysis limited to DDL in Japan by Mizumoto and Chujo.
