タイトル: From Knowing and Remembering to Analyzing and Researching: The Challenges and Changes Facing Japanese University Freshmen
著者: Rivers, Damian
アブストラクト: Situated within the context of the Japanese education system and combining historical and political influences, this presentation documents how Japanese university students respond to, and cope with, the transition from the dependent learning practices found within the public school system to the independent learning practices found at university in terms of EFL learning. Focusing on the conflicting interests behind the Japanese need for English language proficiency (learning English for practical purposes, something driven by a variety of external forces, such as the notion of internalization and learning English as an academic subject for the purpose of passing examinations into higher education as part of governmental (MEXT’s) tracking of Japanese people throughout the education system), 75 freshmen students were surveyed at the end of their first year studying within an independent learning environment regarding their attitudes towards dependent/independent learning and their specific experiences of language learning under both conditions. The responses given will be contextually discussed and the problems and concerns of the students will be highlighted with specific reference to EFL learning practices, foreign language education within Japan and possible techniques to facilitate the transition from high-school to university.
