This study aims to explore the effects of an English public speaking (EPS) course on Chinese EFL university students’ critical thinking dispositions (CTD) according to their proficiency levels. 115 freshmen from a university in China participated in this current study and they were randomly divided into one experimental group (n = 55) and one control group (n = 60). According to the scores of TOEIC listening, the participants were grouped into three proficiency levels - low-level, intermediate-level and high-level. During the sixteen-week treatment, the experimental group was required to take the EPS course while the control group took a traditional English speaking course. To confirm the effects of the EPS course, pre- and post-tests regarding the CTD were conducted. The results of the independent t-tests revealed that the EPS course had positive effects on enhancing the CTD of Chinese EFL students regardless of their English proficiency levels. The results of the one-way ANOVA demonstrated that students with higher proficiency levels improved more significantly regarding all the dimensions of CTD. Based on the results, several pedagogical implications are made.

Considering that L1 translation in L2 lexical encoding is commonplace in vocabulary learning in Korea, the study sought the type of L1 translation that can efficiently promote the target L2 processing. For this, 77 English majors at a university participated in two vocabulary learning conditions using 'L1α' (dictionary L1) and 'L1β' (individual learner's own L1 reflecting his/her own speech style in actual communication) and were tested in a vocabulary production test reflecting L2 communication. Using a paired-samples t-test in a within-subjects design, the effects of the two L1 translation types were compared in the immediate and delayed posttests. The results suggested that the advantage of 'L1β' over 'L1 α' in L2 production was evident both for single-word and multi-word lexical items. The effect of 'L1β' was also confirmed in long-term memory. In the frame of computational models of lexical processing, the study suggested that the cognitive path 'Concept-L1β-L2' is more efficient than 'Concept-L1β-L1α-L2'. Consequently, in the learning process, encoding new L2 lexical items through 'L1 β' rather than 'L1α' may be more effective to retrieve the target L2 in production. Pedagogical suggestions are discussed based on this model.

The present study reports on the moderating effects of English proficiency and writing topics on the model of EFL writing. A total of 68 university students participated in the present study, and data were analyzed using a series of multiple regression. Results of the study indicate that for the lower English proficiency group, English grammar, vocabulary, and writing anxiety made a significant prediction on English writing about every-day life, while English grammar, vocabulary, writing anxiety, and perceptions of feedback significantly affected English writing about climatic change. However, for the higher proficiency group, English grammar, vocabulary, knowledge about textual organization and logical flow, and writing anxiety explained a significant proportion in the variances in English writing about every-day life, whereas English writing about climatic change was significantly accounted for by English grammar, vocabulary, reading-writing connection strategy, knowledge about textual organization & logical flow, and writing anxiety. The results were discussed in terms of previous literature, and pedagogical implications were given.

This paper investigates the historical development of English education in South Korea during the Seventh National Curriculum period from 1997 to 2007. By focusing on Dong-An Ilbo newspaper articles published in Korea, the research questions are: 1) how did the sociocultural issues influence English education during this period? and 2) what are the implications of the social issues in this period to the current English education policies in Korea? A total of 446 articles were categorized into five major themes: surging interest in private education, an effort of consolidating public education, implementation of various English tests, overseas employment and emigration, and other factors. It was found that the national interest in English education closely reflected the desire to occupy a better social position in Korea. In this process, instrumental motivation in English education dominated during this period. Such instrumental desire first influenced private English education, and accordingly, public education endeavored to address these changes initiated by the private sector. However, since English education policy lacked systematic preparation, these efforts did not provide intended, positive results. This paper concludes with educational implementation and future research suggestions.

This study aims to analyze the effectiveness of utilizing graded readers on literacy development of English underachievers in high school. The subjects are five Korean high school 1st graders, and the single subject method was employed for this study. The duration of the entire study was ten weeks and the intervention classes of reading with graded books were conducted once or twice a week. Each session was 50 minutes on average. During the intervention period, five students learned English vocabulary and grammar and read texts with two selected graded books. Changes were observed in their literacy skills and affective domains during the intervention period. The results demonstrate that the five underachievers showed meaningful improvements in acquiring words, grammatical knowledge, and reading comprehension. Additionally, the results also indicate that English intervention with reading graded readers had a positive effect on affective factors such as confidence, interest, participation, and anxiety. Pedagogical implications are discussed for English underachievers from elementary to secondary schools.

This study is designed to investigate Korean middle and high school students' English reading strategy use and reading achievement in terms of academic self-efficacy level, and to explore the difference of the aspects in terms of school levels. A total of 169 middle and high school students participated in the study. A survey about academic self-efficacy and English reading strategy and a test for measuring the participants' English reading achievement were administered. The results of the study revealed that there was no significant difference in academic self-efficacy between the two school levels. Furthermore, the students with high academic self-efficacy showed significantly more frequent English reading strategy use than those with low academic self-efficacy, regardless of school levels. Lastly, the students with high academic self-efficacy showed significantly higher reading achievement than those with low academic self-efficacy, regardless of school levels. The findings suggest that enhancing the level of students' academic self-efficacy likely leads to both more frequent use of English reading strategy and higher English reading achievement.

This study examines the experiences of teacher learning and lesson sharing of pre-service elementary school teachers in the English lesson sharing model process. For this purpose, data were collected from 35 pre-service teachers attending a national university of education and taking an English Integrated Education Practice class at the time of the study. The data used in the analysis were three video analysis assignments in the pre-lesson sharing stage, two lesson sharing recordings in the lesson sharing stage, and one reflective journal in the reflective stage. As a result of the analysis, first, in the lesson sharing preparation stage, pre-service teachers mainly experienced individual teacher learning opportunities. They understood and learned their colleagues' various perspectives on English instruction. They also began to look critically at their previous thoughts on English education. In the lesson sharing stage, through social interaction with colleagues, pre-service teachers understood various perspectives and methods of English instruction and improved their communication skills for class sharing. They also showed the ability to ask questions by analyzing the lesson and logically answering the questions of fellow teachers. In the reflective stage, pre-service teachers reflected on their classes and thought about ways to improve them. They identified the strengths as well as the shortcomings of their classes and formed a positive attitude toward the English instruction demonstration. This reflection led to new determination and motivation concerning English instruction as a pre-service teacher. Pedagogical implications and future research are also discussed.

Complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF) represent distinctive dimensions of language development, which have been widely used to assess learners' task performance. Despite much attention to CAF constructs in research, little is known about how they are perceived by L2 learners. This study examines what CAF-specific orientations learners possess as they relate to their motivational self and anxiety, and it further explores how learners' CAF orientations affect their L2 writing performance. Fifty-one Korean learners of English completed a questionnaire that gauged learners' orientations towards CAF constructs. They also performed simple and complex writing tasks with a one week interval. The participants' responses were submitted to factor analysis, and the writing performance was assessed in terms of CAF measures. The results revealed the convergence of learners' CAF orientations, suggesting that the CAF triad exists as a unitary construct for L2 learners. Also, the participants' CAF-orientation did not affect their writing performance in either simple or complex tasks.

Developing technology provides more learning opportunities than ever before to support a game training environment for language education. It can enhance language experience for learners in constructing knowledge to acquire language through gamified audience response systems. Considering vocabulary is a critical component of English language learning, it is vital to find effective ways of incorporating technology into learning. More importantly, understanding language learners' reactions are a crucial factor for positive learning effects as they lead to effective teaching strategies. Thus, this study examined 244 Korean EFL university learners' reactions towards three gamified response programs―Socrative, Kahoot, and Quizlet―in vocabulary learning. Participants joined eight game activities, consisting of five activities for individual play and three for group play. This study also introduced how an instructor can create game activities and how language learners interact through three audio response systems (ARS) with free-to-play web browser games. The results showed that most participants responded positively to using gamified ARS programs, and the participants who were of a higher English level preferred to use game learning slightly more. In addition, all participants showed different attitudes for their preferred ARS program and the game activities for both individual and group play.

This study aims to investigate the effects of implementing flipped learning into an EFL speaking class on Korean EFL undergraduate learners' speaking anxiety and speaking skills. 48 Korean EFL learners participated in this study and they were assigned to an experimental group and a control group. Over a semester, the experimental group of 25 students engaged in flipped learning, while the control group of 23 students participated in traditional EFL instruction. To collect data of this study, 1) a pre- and post-test on speaking abilities and 2) a pre- and post-questionnaire on the participants' speaking anxiety were administered for each group. The results showed that the flipped classroom was more effective than the traditional classroom in terms of increasing the participants' speaking proficiency. In addition, flipped learning in the EFL speaking class effectively decreased the participants' speaking anxiety. This study suggests that incorporating flipped learning into the EFL classroom is beneficial for anxious learners who suffer from speaking anxiety in terms of effectively lowering their speaking anxiety and developing their speaking skills.

This study aims to investigate the rating performance of Korean pre-service secondary school English teachers. Twenty-seven secondary student teachers participated in both self and peer rating sessions because they scored 27 essays after they had written a one-page essay with the given topic. They were asked to make comments on essays, and rating time for each essay they spent right after they finished scoring each assessment criterion. The results exhibited that, first, most of the participants did consistently assign their scores, but no statistically significant association was found between their writing ability and their consistency in scoring. Second, some biases on self and peer rating were found. Participants showed that they tended to score the essays at the higher levels of proficiency more severely. On the contrary to this, they were likely to assign more lenient scores to the essays at the lower levels of proficiency. Third, the length of the rating time they spent was not directly related to maintaining intra-rater reliability. The findings of this study have some educational implications for training pre-service teachers.
