Investigating EFL Secondary Stage Learners' Problems in Comprehending Phrasal Verbs in Written Texts // GP // Dr. Ebtihal Abdel Aziz Ahmed Helal (2017 - 2018) - GIZA MSA 2018 - 30 cm

The aim of this research was to find out the problems that face Egyptian EFL secondary
stage learners while attempting to comprehend phrasal verbs in written texts. To achieve
this aim, a test was designed and administered by the researcher on a random sample of
fifteen Egyptian EFL secondary stage students at Modern Infinity Language School. It was
hypothesized that (a) Egyptian EFL secondary stage students find it most difficult to
comprehend phrasal verbs that consist of a verb + an adverb particle + a preposition as
compared to the other two types of phrasal verbs and (b) Egyptian EFL secondary stage
students find it most difficult when they are required to guess the meanings of phrasal
verbs on their own without being offered any alternatives. Based on the analysis of the
test results, it was revealed that both of the research hypotheses were confirmed.
However, it should be highlighted that there were limitations to the current research
findings. One of these limitations was related to the fact that it was a small scale study
conducted on a small group of students in only one school and one governorate.
Therefore, it was recommended to conduct this study on a larger scale and to follow
more effective teaching methods to help EFL learners overcome their problems in
comprehending phrasal verbs هدفت هذه الدراسة إلي التعرف علي المشكلات التي يواجهها الطلاب المصريون في المرحلة الثانوية عند محاولتهم لفهم الأفعال
العبارية في النصوص المكتوبة باللغة الإنجليزية كلغة أجنبية . و لتحقيق هذا الهدف صممت الباحثة إختبار اً و طبقته علي عنية
عشوائية من طلاب المرحلة الثانوية بمحافظة الجيزة . و أظهرت نتائج الدراسة أن هؤلاء الطلاب يواجهون مشكلات عند محاولتهم
لفهم النوع الثالث من الأفعال العبارية و الذي يتكون من فعل + أداة ظرف + حرف جر مقارنة بالنوعين الآخرين من الأفعال
العبارية كما إنهم يواحهون صعوبة أكبر في تحديد معاني هذه الأفعال العبارية إذا لم يتم مساعدتهم ببدائل مختلفة للتنبؤ بمعاني هذه
الأفعال العبارية في النصوص المكتوبة
