Hi burberry-ga,

I am interested in answering your question, but I believe that, to
it well, your question will require more time and effort than the
amount of time and effort associated with this price.

I have successfully found 20 references on the topic you requested
which has already taken a considerable amount of time. The questions
are not APA formatted. Would you accept non-APA formatted references
as your answer?

Here is a link to guidelines about pricing your question,

I cut and paste and didn't even say Hi.. Sorry!

Hi burberry,

Above, please find your list of APA style references. I was too far
into the question to not answer, and I hope my effort wont go

These references were found at:

once there, you need to go the 'advance search page'. I used the
following terms:

english [second language]   <--- all descriptor
high school   <--- all descriptors
taiwan   <--- identifier field

Thanks for using Google Answers.

Thanks so much for the tip. I do understand what its like to be a
student: I've "been there, done that" myself.
burberry-ga rated this answer:4 out of 5 stars and gave an additional tip of: $2.00
Dear legolas,
First,thank you for your effort to answer me, I really appritiate
Second, sorry for the low price I offer, because I'm just a college
students, I can't offer good price in correspond with the plenty of
time you work on it. Sorry for that.
Third, the references are not in one or similar topic as I mentioned
in the question.  I mean the topic should be all about EFL reading,
for example.  But it's my fault.  I'll take the answers, thank u
