研究概要
My research is designed to better understand the issues faced by English as an Additional Language (EAL) learners with regard to vocabulary knowledge and development. My current research builds upon previous studies that have highlighted how a lack of specific academic vocabulary remains a significant hurdle for EAL learners (e.g. Coxhead & Boutorwick, 2018; Milton & Treffers-Daller, 2013; Schmitt et al., 2017).

This research focuses on high school students studying at international schools in Japan. It involves assessing the subjects according to four factors over three years: vocabulary knowledge (the updated Vocabulary Levels Test (uVLT); Webb et al., 2017), word decoding skills (Single Word Reading Test (SWRT); Snowling et al., 2009), reading comprehension (the York Assessment of Reading Comprehension (YARC); Snowling et al., 2009), and general linguistic ability (C-test; Trakulphadetkrai et al., 2017). This data will then be analyzed to better understand factors affecting vocabulary acquisition and the relationship between the students' lexical knowledge and their academic performance. In conjunction with this, I am also working with other researchers to develop an EAL corpus and word list developed specifically for this group of students.
