This study looked for the relationship between self-efficacy and college students’ attitudes toward learning activities, especially reading aloud and cooperative learning. 426 Japanese university students were asked to respond to a questionnaire, which included the generalized self-efficacy scale, 26 multiple-choice questions on learning activities, and two open-ended questions on reading aloud and cooperative learning. The answers to the open-ended questions were analyzed by text-mining and a correspondence analysis, and multiple-choice items were analyzed using chi-square tests. The findings showed that the low self-efficacy students were reluctant to read aloud and work in groups, though they were interested in acquiring correct English rhythm and intonation. Also both high and low self-efficacy students realized that cooperative learning was worthwhile. The authors believe that even low self-efficacy students would enjoy reading aloud with the use of prosody and working in groups after they engage in such activities a few times.
