Umeda, Mari; Snape, Neal; Yusa, Noriaki; Wiltshier, John – Language Teaching Research, 2019
This study examines the role of explicit instruction in article semantics to L2 learners of English. Two types of generic sentences, expressed by different articles, were tested over time. An instruction group (n = 21), a control group (n = 16) and a native English speaker control group (n = 9) participated in the study. The instruction group…

Morley, Louise; Leyton, Daniel; Hada, Yumiko – Policy Reviews in Higher Education, 2019
Internationalisation is a polyvalent policy discourse, saturated in conceptual and ideological ambiguity. It is an assemblage of commodification, exploitation and opportunity and is a container for multiple aspirations, anxieties, and affordances. It combines modernisation, detraditionalisation, and expansiveness, with knowledge capitalism,…

Yanaoka, Kaichi; Nakayama, Masataka; Jarrold, Christopher; Saito, Satoru – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2019
The Hebb repetition paradigm has recently attracted attention as a measure of serial order learning, which underlies word-form learning abilities. Although children are good vocabulary learners, it is surprising that previous Hebb learning studies with young children show rather weak Hebb effects. In this study, we conducted two experiments to…

Imai, Tatsuya; Imai, Ayako – Journal of International Students, 2019
Intergroup contact theory suggests that developing a close relationship with outgroup members ameliorates the negative impact of prejudice that individuals perceive from outgroup members. This article specifically investigates the moderating role of cross-ethnic self-disclosure in the link between international students' perceived ethnic/racial…

Iio, Takamasa; Maeda, Ryota; Ogawa, Kohei; Yoshikawa, Yuichiro; Ishiguro, Hiroshi; Suzuki, Kaori; Aoki, Tomohiro; Maesaki, Miharu; Hama, Mika – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper reports how robot-assisted language learning (RALL) impacts Japanese adults' English speaking skills. With existing research on RALL focusing on children, there is little evidence indicating RALL's effects on adults. We developed a RALL system comprising a robot, a tablet, and designed learning materials for speaking practice. To…

Yanaoka, Kaichi; Saito, Satoru – Developmental Psychology, 2019
A wealth of developmental research suggests that preschoolers are capable of reporting, imitating, and performing sequential actions they engage in routinely. However, few studies have explored the developmental and cognitive mechanisms required for learning how to perform such routines. A previous computational model of routines argued that a…

Sanders, Justin S. – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2019
This cross-case analysis explores national level internationalisation of higher education (IoHE) policies in Singapore and Japan. Through comparison of the state level internationalisation strategies, this paper aims to highlight how each country's unique policy environment impacts their approach to IoHE. The analysis suggests that despite the…

Allen, Todd James – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
Writing groups have been implemented in higher education institutions in the US, UK and Australia as a means of supporting a writer's productivity (e.g., journal articles or book chapters) as well as developing their soft academic skills (e.g., collegiality). However, writing groups are seldom discussed in the Japanese context. Therefore, this…

Sato, Rintaro – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Willingness to Communicate (WTC) plays a crucial role in second language (L2) learning, and is believed to be closely related to learning in general; the higher a learner's WTC, the better their fluency with the L2. WTC can also be conceptualized as fluctuating from moment to moment during the course of L2 use and communication. This also seems to…

Fukuda, Steve T.; Sakata, Hiroshi; Pope, Christopher J. – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2019
Universities in the EFL context aim to foster graduates who can use English in the workplace. Regardless, university students' insufficient amount of out-of-class study time is a major issue. This problem may stem from learners' lack of learning skills, low levels of learning motivation, and high levels of academic procrastination. Self-coaching…

Leaper, David A.; Brawn, James R. – Language Testing, 2019
This paper is an investigation into the use of the group oral discussion test (GOT) to detect changes in speaking proficiency over a two-year period. In this test, three or four test-takers discuss a topic for up to 10 minutes without outside intervention. The performance of 53 Japanese university English major students on this test was videoed…

Im, Gwan-Hyeok; Cheng, Liying – Language Testing, 2019
The primary purpose of the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC®) is to measure the everyday English skills of individuals, who speak a first language other than English, working in an international environment (ETS, 2015a, 2016a; Powers & Powers, 2015). The TOEIC also has six secondary purposes: (1) to verify the current…

MacIntyre, Robert – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2019
In many academic writing textbooks and style guides the use of personal pronouns is not encouraged. This is particularly problematic for non-native speakers of English trying to express themselves in a second language as, although personal pronouns are a clear signal of the writers' identity and presence in a text, they are usually advised not to…
