Abstract
This article reports on a classroom-based (quasi)-experiment with a pre-test post-test design that explored the effect of two types of activities on the productive recall of German formulaic sequences (FS): 1) attention-directing activities and 2) retrieval practice. Two intact classes of Dutch-speaking university students of German participated in the study. One class was randomly assigned to the attention-directing condition (n=18), the other one to the retrieval condition (n=11). Twenty-two target FS were selected as learning items. Each group processed the FS in a different condition. In the attention-directing condition, students had to 1) re-read a video transcript with the FS in bold typeface and 2) translate the targets into Dutch. In the retrieval condition, students had to 1) complete a transcript in which the FS were deleted and 2) translate the targets into German. Results indicate that the retrieval condition led to better productive phrase learning than the attention-directing condition.
