Abstract

This paper explores the benefits of combining narrow reading and listening in instructional contexts. Topic familiarity has been found to be helpful for vocabulary learning as well as reading and listening comprehension. Reading and listening on a familiar topic make it possible to use specific background knowledge and  recycle language learned in context. To demonstrate how purposely enriched contextual knowledge can be advantageous for learners learning to read and listen, we report on a course coordination project based on the idea of narrow input. From this project emerged two recommended pedagogical approaches: presenting information from specific to general and with both spoken and written input together on a single topic.

本編は、外国語学習の初級・中級の段階で、特定のトピックに関連した教材を集中して学ぶことによって、読解と聴解の訓練を同時進行で、より効率的に・効果的に行う手法を検討する。教材を特定のトピックに限定することの利点を、平和教育をテーマとしたコース連携の実践例を紹介しながら議論する。
