Example text

Four specific questions are to be addressed as follows: 1. How do the Chinese EFL learners perceive reading and writing before the implementation of the process genre approach? 2. Does the process genre approach contribute to the enhancement of the Chinese EFL learners’ generic reading and writing competence? If so, in what ways? 3. How do the Chinese EFL learners perceive the process genre approach? 4. What characteristics do the Chinese EFL learners manifest in acquiring generic competence in reading and writing?

The data collected from the writing portfolios helped the researchers to gain a better understanding of how the participants applied genre knowledge they had learned in reading and writing classes and how their genre awareness was fostered. 3 In-Depth Interviews In-depth interviews had ten questions which were focused on three major aspects: students’ previous and current knowledge of genre, their perceptions of the genre approach, and their gains and suggestions for the genre-based teaching and learning (see Appendix 4).

When the course came to an end, learners had learned a series of genre writing. They were asked to write the same job application letter again in class with 300 words in 30 min as posttest (see Appendix 6). Two teachers, who were very experienced in process genre teaching, graded the test papers by adopting holistic scoring on the basis of the writing scoring scale (see Appendix 7). Both pretest and posttest of reading and writing were designed to check if the EFL learners made significantly different progress in reading and writing generic competence after implementing the process genre approach for one semester.
