This study examines the differences in English language exposure among Taiwanese college students living in Taiwan and in the Philippines. One-hundred and eighty participants completed an English language exposure questionnaire. The results revealed that the Taiwanese in the Philippines significantly showed higher levels of English language exposure than their counterpart in Taiwan t(180)=8.99, p<.05. A large effect size on exposure (d=1.34) was observed for that difference. English learners within an English-speaking context are more exposed to the language, which enables them to imbibe and internalize the English language through communication.
