Saloomeh Niknejad, Behzad Rahbar


The present study was conducted to measure the impact of multimedia-based visualization on Iranian EFL learners’ reading comprehension. The current study is based on the researcher's motivation to find empirical evidences in intermediate English language learners. To do so, the reading comprehension texts was provided through two methods; first, static visualization in which students received reading texts with static pictures; second, dynamic visualization in which the reading texts were provided with animated pictures. The results of independent sample t-test showed that dynamic visualization was more effective than static one in enhancing EFL learners' reading comprehension.
