'Advanced Learners' Dictionary Use

(Japan) Kyoto JALT announced that they, along with the JSL-SIG, will be hosting an 'Advanced Learners Dictionary Use' presentation in June. The presentation will introduce the results of a qualitative study on bilingual dictionary usage of college students. The study focused on how Japanese-English/English-Japanese dictionaries (paper, electronic, and online) are used by advanced Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL) and advanced ESL learners. Only the results of the JFL subjects will be introduced and discussed during the presentation. The seminar will be presented by Yoshiko Okuyama, Assistant Professor in Japanese and Linguistics at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Okuyama's area of expertise is Second Language Acquisition, and her research topics include technology-assisted language learning and adolescent bilingualism.
