Japanese and Other Language Teaching & Learning College & University Education Research-Oriented Short Presentation
Students’ Initial Level of Vocabulary & Their CLIL Course Test Performances
The present study compares CLIL course vocabulary test performances of Japanese EFL university students with a higher initial level of vocabulary to those with a lower one. The findings showed that students who knew the most frequent 4,000 word families of English scored high on all the tests; however, those with less vocabulary knowledge did not reveal straightforward tendencies. The presenter will explain possible factors which led to these results.
