This study seeks to uncover effective methods for helping Japanese language learners notice features of natural conversation. Three methods were tested: 1) video alone, 2) video with transcript, and 3) video with instruction to focus on specific features. Zero beginner learners noticed non-linguistic actions and gross conversational structures if asked to focus on them. Intermediate and advanced learners noticed features of the talk itself, such as pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar—even when not instructed to do so. Furthermore, learners used the transcripts to confirm noticings, and attempted to interpret the meanings of features upon which they were asked to focus.
