Previous research studies conducted with native English speakers indicated that text comprehension is improved with the inclusion of visual information in the form of pictorial information. In addition, the timing of presentation of audiovisual information affects comprehension when the visual information precedes the audio information, but alternatively leads to the highest comprehension when presented simultaneously with the audio information. However, these results are limited to native speakers. How does the presentation of audiovisual information affect second-language learners’ comprehension? In particular, how do second-language learners listen to audio explanations in presentations while observing the visual information? This was examined by manipulating the timing and presentation of visual information; e.g., presenting the visual information 7 seconds ahead of the audio information or simultaneously with the audio information, and by presenting either graphs or text information visually. The dependent variables were the scores of yes/no and free recall tests. The results show that simultaneous audiovisual presentation of information is more effective for advanced Japanese learners.
