On the AIM: A comparative study of writing skills

Master thesis for a secondary school
Audrey Rousse-Malpat has investigated AIM (Accelerated Integrated Method), a highly input driven teaching method designed for the acquisition of French as a Second Language. The goal has been to determine whether external resources (high input method vs. low input method) and initial conditions (aptitude level) have an effect on L2 development operationalized as holistic scores, complexity, accuracy and authenticity.

The outcomes of the holistic study show that the writing proficiency of AIM students is at all times
better. The second study shows that higher complexity level and fewer mistakes can partly explain this result.
