|Abstract: ||abstract:This research investigated what English learners can retell of the two types of passages with culturally familiar and unfamiliar topics. The participants’ retelling protocols were categorized into synthesizing information. The research firstly examined whether there was difference between English learners’ synthesizing information of the two types of passages. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the participants’ synthesizing information for the Chinese and non-Chinese topic passages. The participants may have had the competence of an awareness of the whole and then combine some information in the text to make a synthesized statement over culturally familiar and unfamiliar topic passages. Secondly, the process of how the participants utilized prior knowledge in producing synthesizing information was explained. In the last section of the paper, the researcher presented some recommendations for classroom practice in an effort to help language teachers apply the results of the study to the actual instructional contexts.|
