YAMAZAKI Keiko, Professor

I am pursuing research on Japanese language education from the viewpoint of the second language learning. I am considering how to support Japanese language learners, and how to design the language learning environment. I am also interested in research based on the analysis of Japanese language conversations, and try to analyze how people organize their relationships with each other.
