TC Columbia:

Training Japanese Students in Listening Strategy Tasks

Date: Sunday, June 29th, 2003 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Hiroko Hagino

How can we accelerate the process of improving listening skills of Japanese students through classroom instruction? One answer would be to teach the students "how to fish"(listening strategy) rather than giving "a fish" (specific knowledge). In this lecture, the speaker will present some findings that she obtained through her doctoral research studies. The focus of the research is the understanding of lexical words that are key elements in the retrieval of information conveyed through speech, in non-interactive, transactional settings. About the speaker: Hiroko Hagino, Ph.D., obtained her MA in TESOL, and M.Ed. in Applied Linguistics at TC in New York City in the late 1970s. She has been teaching English at universities in Tokyo. She obtained her Ph.D. degree at Tokyo Gakugei University in 2000. Her publications include "A Handbook for Teaching of English Pronunciation" (Tokyo Shoseki), two EFL textbooks, "Healthy Lifestyles", "Changing Asia" (Eichosha, Co. Ltd.) and the book based on Dissertation, "Task Effects on the Development of EFL Listening Proficiency"(Eichosha, Co. Ltd.
