Question: Is listening to literature while reading it superior to simply listening to its being read or simply read?
Answer: “Compared three methods: listening to a tape recording of a literary work while following the reading in the text; listening only; reading only. All three study methods generally appeared to be equally effective.” RR Gribbon. 1973. P. 406.
Comment: In what way effective? Not enough information. Comparing the three methods is, however, an interesting idea. RayS.
