The Effect of Linguistic Exposure on Written Errors of Pre-Intermediate Saudi Technical College Students (Published)

Quantitative and qualitative methods are implemented in order to demonstrate the type of relationship between the variables. Two tools are selected which are: A questionnaire and administrating a writing test for participants who are Saudi pre-intermediate technical college students are a population targeted by this study.
