研究テーマ I have been studying about the teaching and learning of vocabulary in a foreign language. I am especially interested in word association. This is like a game you may know. When you see or hear a word, it makes you think of another word. For example, the word "man" may make you think of another word like "woman". I believe that all the words we know in our first and second language are joined together in something like a big 3D spider web. I am very interested in the growth of the English word webs of Japanese learners. I am also interested in tests that calculate the number of words that learners know. Something tells me that learners need to learn more vocabulary (and grow their word webs) to be more successful in their studies of English!
