This paper aims to report on the results of a student attitude survey for English vocabulary learning. To increase the size of their vocabulary, all students at National Institute of Technology, Kisarazu College (Kisarazu Kosen) are using "COCET2600" as a learning material. As it is difficult to teach vocabulary effectively in a lesson environment, students have to learn by themselves outside of the classroom. Although a few students can use "COCET2600" effectively by themselves, the majority of the students cannot use it in an effective way. Therefore, the author conducted a survey of students on vocabulary learning using "COCET2600". From the results of the questionnaire survey, the author will indicate the following three points; (1) students attitude toward vocabulary learning, (2) effectiveness of using "COCET2600" by students, (3) differences of awareness and learning forvocabulary leaning in lower grade students and upper grade students.
This study aims to clarify a part of students’ listening processes to develop self-regulated learners of English by implementing the new teaching guidelines issued by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in 2019. Students’ learning journals in this report were used to observe the students learning processes. The learning journal is a diary in which students write about their study. M-GTA (Modified Grounded Theory Approach) is used to analyze students’ journal entries qualitatively. This study specially focuses on words related to metacognition and self-efficacy, subsequently linking to self-regulated learning. As a result, it was found that students were able to improve their listening strategies by implementing metacognition and self-efficacy that help them become self- regulated learners.
