This paper explores the gap between teachers and students’ attitudes toward learning about domestic violence and gay/lesbian issues in the EFL classrooms in a Japanese university. Results showed that students had positive feelings toward learning about domestic violence and gay/lesbian issues, whereas college instructors were sometimes hesitant or disliked teaching about these issues. Students had an intellectual curiosity toward these issues and indicated the connection between learning about these issues and personal growth. On the other hand, instructors showed a lack of confidence or anxiety about discussing these issues in their classrooms. 

本論では、大学のEFL教室における、家庭内暴力と同性愛問題に対する学生と教師の意識の違いを研究した。結果として、学生はこれらのトピックを学ぶことに好意的であったのに対し、教師はその重要性を認識しながらも、あまり積極的には取り上げたくないという反応がみられた。学生はジェンダーやセクシュアリティの問題に対する知的好奇心を示し、学ぶことは自己成長につながると述べた。一方、教師はこれらの問題を教えることに対する不安や自信のなさを示した。
