Taira, Tatsuo
A study was conducted to analyze the attitudes and English teaching methods of some Japanese teachers of English in secondary schools in Japan. Questionnaires were sent to 50 junior high teachers and 50 high school teachers of English as a second language (ESL). The data analysis is based on responses from 20 junior high teachers and 32 high school teachers. The following points were at issue in the study: (1) the effects on English class activities of entrance examinations to high schools or universities; (2) English teachers' difficulties in teaching listening and speaking in class; (3) teachers' time needs for preparation of classes; (4) teachers' attitudes toward the recent reduction of lessons per week in junior high schools; and (5) students' psychological disadvantages in learning English. Appendices include the questionnaire used in the study and statistical results of the questionnaire. (Author/AMH)
