    A variety of past experiences influence our thoughts and behaviors, and this premise also applies to adult second language (L2) and foreign language (FL) learning above and beyond child first language acquisition, since toddlers can internalize their mother tongue largely unconsciously with the language faculty of mental organizations while adults consciously study linguistic features such as vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar and much think of non-linguistic matters as their goals and motives, worries and anxiety, beliefs about how one should study, and strategies for learning the target language effectively. My work in English teaching methodology focuses on affective and cognitive factors in language learning. Examples of those foctors are motivation, goal orientations, beliefs, anxiety, and strategy. The roles and interactions of those factors are discussed in my lab.

Awards & Honors

Research Grants & Projects

  • Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C)), Foreign Language Activities in Special Needs Education: fundamental issues on some focal points and ways of supporting teachers, Akira NAKAYAMA, Hiroki YOSHIDA, , 外国語教育, 基盤研究(C), 愛媛大学, This study reports on three classes of foreign language activities conducted in special needs education in Japan by describing how students enjoy the activities in English as a foreign language and suggests the following: First, even though students have developmental disorders, teachers can facilitate students learning by installing ICT devices which enable them to make attractive materials for students, and by introducing SST in class, they also help students concentrate on the content. Second, a lack of research studies might not only lead to insufficient support for teachers, but also cause some misgivings about the legitimacy of conducting foreign languages activities in special needs education in Japan.
  • Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(C)), Investigating Successful Readers of English: From the Integrated Perspectives of Motivation, Beliefs, and Strategy, Hiroyuki MATSUMOTO, Akira NAKAYAMA, Tomohito HIROMORI, 外国語教育, 基盤研究(C), 愛媛大学->北海学園大学, In this study, we investigated the relationships among strategy use, motivation, and general learner beliefs in L2 reading by implementing teaching practices including a strategy intervention. The results indicated that there are significant relationships among strategy use, motivation, and general learner beliefs in L2 reading, and that strategy intervention can have a positive influence on motivation and beliefs as well as on reading proficiency. It was also shown that the development and interaction of these individual difference factors differ among L2 readers according to their individual difference profiles.
  • Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(若手研究(B)), A fundamental study on Non-linguistic factors of English learners in Japanese elementary schools, Akira NAKAYAMA, 外国語教育, 若手研究(B), 足利工業大学->愛媛大学, Through the interviews and the self-report questionnaire to the participants and their teachers, it was found that affective factors of students in elementary schools toward English activities can be determined by the relationships with their friends in class, the contents, and their personality traits.
