     View Summary

    This study analyzes the usage of 'V-yoo to omou' in an e-mail task given to 30 native speakers and 90 learners of Japanese. The e-mail task was to reply to a request to bring something to a picnic. It was found that Japanese language learners never used 'V-yoo to omou' despite having learned it, while it was a common choice of Japanese native speakers. 'V-yoo to omou' was used in this task to let the other person make the final decision, but learners did not understand this nuance. In conclusion, we found that we need to reconsider how 'V-yoo to omou' is taught.

    This presentation reviews the 2017 YNU Japanese Language and Culture Summer Program and discusses considerations for improvements. The program mainly consisted of Japanese language and culture classes, and the 2017 program offered beginning-intermediate and advanced classes to match the online placement test results. Academic counseling was also provided for those interested in applying for graduate school. The program evaluation showed that while the participants were satisfied with the Japanese language and culture classes overall, some felt that the program did not exactly match their individual Japanese language levels and purposes for attending the summer program.

     View Summary

    This study analyses emails written by 30 Japanese native speakers (JNS) and 90 Japanese language learners (JLL). Each participant wrote an email for Task A, &quotDeclining a request for a translation&quot and Task B, &quotInquiring about coming to Japan.&quot For Task A, we found that the JNS used circumlocution, saying thingsin a roundabout way such as dekisoo ni nai, whereas JLL commonly used direct phrases such as dekinai. For Task B, JNS inquired without appealing to the senses, but JLL mentioned hardships and lacked consideration. Japanese language education should introduce JLL to methods of responding more politely or indirectly.
