Abstract

This study examines how native and non-native English speakers summarize expository texts. It investigates if there is any difference in quality between the summaries of the two groups; namely native speakers of English, who acquire the language in early childhood and have their education (from kindergarten/grade1 to high school) in English, and non-native speakers, who acquire the language in an ESL/EFL context. This study also observes the problems students encountered during summarization.
