dc.description.abstract Reading is one of the most important aspects of learning, but it is also the most complex, and, therefore, the most difficult to practise and teach. It is because of this that many reading strategies have been proposed in an attempt to help readers, especially ESL readers. Some of the strategies are more effective than others, and this study attempts to establish the effectiveness of semantic mapping as a reading strategy. The methodology employed in this study is discussed under four headings: subjects, instrumentation, data collection procedure and design and analysis. A number of black first year students from the Bophuthatswana Nursing College who were taking Special English were included in the study. The results indicate the superiority of the experimental group when compared to the control groups after completion of the experiment. This implies that semantic mapping is an effective memory strategy which can help improve students' ESL reading comprehension ability. en
