概要 To get insight into how non-native students prefer to receive classes with English as the medium of instruction (EMI), we conducted a short questionnaire study at two departments of Kyushu University,... Japan. The respondents were 94 first-year students (predominantly domestic) and 41 postgraduate students (domestic and international). The questionnaire showed that a significant majority of respondents preferred EMI mixed with some instruction in Japanese. Many respondents thought the instructors’ English would improve if they used clearer and simple verbal English, as well as clearly legible visual English. Furthermore, the respondents thought that the most important ingredients of an EMI class were summaries/repetition of subject matter and hand-outs /downloadable materials. Given that many respondents were domestic students, these preferences may reflect the students’ concern about picking up subject matter in English in general. Since non-native respondents will have little, if any, experience with (academic) EMI when starting their studies, academic institutes in non-native countries should thus consider additional instruction in the native language and appropriate ways to evaluate and support their EMI environment.続きを見る
