The Use of Anime in Teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language
Han, Chan Yee; Ling, Wong Ngan
Malaysian Online Journal of Educational Technology, v5 n2 p68-78 2017
The study of popular culture is now becoming an emerging research area within education. While many studies have confirmed that students' interest in anime has driven much of enrolment in Japanese language courses, the impact of using anime as a teaching tool has not been studied thoroughly in the teaching Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL) classroom. This article attempts to propose a model that can be used to plan lessons by using anime as a teaching tool in JFL classrooms. By introducing the teaching idea of using anime in a Japanese language classroom, this article is hoped to be able to encourage more Japanese language teacher to consider the use of anime in teaching JFL.
