ISLA studies of implicit learning
Kang, E. Y., Sok, S., & Han, Z-H. (2018). Thirty-five years of ISLA on form-focused instruction: A meta-analysis. Language Teaching Research 23, 4, 428-453.

  • 54 studies (1980 – 2015)
  • Large effect size for instruction (g = 1.06), and also on delayed post-tests (g = .93)
  • Explicit (g = 1.1) = Implicit (g = 1.38) on immediate post-tests
  • Implicit (g = 1.76) > Explicit (g = .77) on delayed post-tests (!) (p < 05) [This is the usual pattern: Implicit learning is more durable]
