2018  Peace begins from friendship: Short-term exchange students’ Japanese language social networks in Japan  共同  2018/08/04 
ヴェネツィア2018日本語教育国際研究大会  , ICJLE 2018   

概要(Abstract) Our torn, modern world desperately needs peace. Yet true peace is more than the absence of conflict; rather, it is the presence within each person of a deep sense of cultural understanding and social empathy. Short-term language exchange programs offer unique opportunities for young people to foster these qualities.
Yet who do short-term exchange students living in dormitories spend time with? What do they talk about, and what do they do together? Little detailed research has been conducted in Japan to discover the answers to these questions. This study seeks to fill this gap, by investigating the Japanese language social networks that short-term exchange students developed over one semester when studying Japanese at a private university in central Japan. Twenty volunteer participants from ten countries kept a detailed diary for seven days in their tenth week of their stay in Japan in the 2016 fall semester. In this diary, participants wrote where, with whom, for how long, and about what they had spoken in Japanese outside the language classroom each day. Participants also chose which of these interactions had been most useful for their language learning and which person had helped them the most each day. Later, participants were interviewed and completed a short questionnaire.
Results showed that by the tenth week of their stay, these twenty short-term exchange students had created Japanese language social networks made up of both Japanese people and foreign students. These social networks provided significant cultural, emotional, and social support, and facilitated the development of language skills and cultural understanding. Female exchange students had twice as many opportunities to speak Japanese as male students; non-English speaking students spoke far more Japanese than native English speakers; intermediate level speakers spoke the most Japanese; and students staying in dormitories spoke about the same amount of Japanese as students doing homestays. Further analysis revealed two main types of Japanese language social networks: small, intense, concentrated social networks and larger, more dispersed social networks. Each of these social networks afforded very different opportunities to interact.

2018  LGBTQIA Perspectives  共同  2018/04/07 
Creating Connections 2018  , Nagoya International School   

概要(Abstract) This session is a discussion, exploring our understandings of the following two questions:
1. What are some of the issues that we (as LGBTQIA students, and friends, parents, teachers, counsellors and supporters of LGBTQIA students) are facing at our schools?
2. How can we as allies support each other to create supportive, understanding, and accepting school environments?
These questions will be discussed in small groups, with a whole sharing session after we explore each question.

2017  International student dormitories: Target language oasis or desert?  単独  2018/02/28 
Professional Development Series  , School of Languages, Literacies and Translation, Universiti Sains Malaysia   

概要(Abstract) During short-term study abroad language programs, many exchange students actively search for opportunities to use the target language but often find it difficult to enter existing host national social networks, particularly if they are staying at an international student dormitory. This paper reports on the experiences of three female foreign exchange students, one Slovakian, one Australian, and the other Indonesian, studying Japanese at a Japanese university, and explains how they created target language social networks in the international dormitories where they were staying. The three participants were asked to keep a language diary for one week, detailing where, with whom, and about what they spoke in Japanese outside the language classroom, ten weeks after they arrived in Japan and entered the dormitory. The participants also completed a short questionnaire and were interviewed in person. Results showed that for these three students the international student dormitories were a target language oasis, providing numerous sustained opportunities for interaction in the target language. The main interlocutors were not only host national (Japanese) students but also other foreign students sharing their dormitories; also, these dormitory-based social networks facilitated the development of language skills and provided significant cultural, emotional, and social support. This research project is in response to the numerous calls for more detailed, qualitative accounts exploring the experiences of exchange students while they are on their sojourn abroad, particularly of under-represented groups such as European and Asian women studying in Japan, and in under-researched spaces such as international dormitories. This is a joint research project with Professor Nanako Machida, Director of the Center for Japanese Studies at Nanzan University. This presentation will be of interest to instructors who teach students who might study abroad in the future, to graduate students researching about the experiences of students studying abroad or in the social networks that language students create outside the language classroom, and to students who are thinking about studying abroad in the future.
