|Abstract:||Reading in the second language (L2) allows learners access to new vocabulary and opportunities to translate from the L2 to the first language (L1) and vice versa. In this paper, we describe three studies that explored strategies for developing L2 Italian decoding repertoires. Participants were undergraduate students preparing for a short-term study abroad trip to Italy. The results indicate that most participants acquired the target Italian letter(s)-sound relations with group instruction and that modeling and/or modeling with See the Sound/Visual Phonics were effective interventions for participants who struggled to acquire the L2 repertoires. Results are discussed in terms of selecting the effective teaching strategies to develop L2 decoding repertoires.|
