Research Statement

Summary of My Research and Future Research Plan and Projects

My educational research areas of interest and writings cover a very broad range, including all areas of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) and the teaching and learning of all four communication skill areas (TESOL/TEFL). My specialties that I focus greater depth and concentration of interest on are the field of CALL and Second Language Reading and Vocabulary Acquisition (SLVA).

A.Past Extensive Research: For 7 years soon after coming to teach in Kyushu at Seinan JoGakuin in 1990 I studied intensively every summer, completing 30 graduate credit hours in Education and a Doctorate in Secondary Education, writing a 370 page Dissertation on “Developing and Testing Vocabulary Training Methods and Materials for Japanese College Students Studying English as a Foreign Language.” This work became the foundation for about 50 subsequent research studies and articles in related fields since. It is recognized and available from three international sources:

1) The national American database for all doctoral dissertations, UMI Dissertation Services (A Bell & Howell Company), in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 800-***-**** or 313-***-****).

2) The national ERIC database online, and from

3) My own website at:

B. Present Progress: I have done much applied linguistics research about language learning, with a special emphasis on vocabulary learning and CALL or computer-assisted language learning, as shown by looking at my Virtual Language Education Encyclopedia online at www.CALL4ALL.US . All of my research aims to help improve language learners’ motivation and real language proficiency.

1) I do my best to contribute to the growth of each student, to the development of the department and to the growth of Seinan JoGakuin as a whole, serving on several committees and actively participating in Chapels.

2) I cooperate with other schools in research, both in Japan and with teachers in other countries as well. This includes research at about 10 colleges in Japan, and joint research collaboration with other teachers in Britain, US, Hungary, Israel and Taiwan.

C. Future Goals: I am working on several concrete language education projects. These include: 1) Research articles, 2) Books and 3) CALL Websites and language learning programs online. (An example is putting the Semantic Field Keyword Approach into both Japanese and Chinese to help students in both countries.) See at:

Summary of My Research, Future Educational Goals and Research Plan:

I actively strive to reflect on and improve my teaching methods and materials in all four skills to all levels of students. I have studied many kinds of computerized devices for learning and translating from Japanese to English or vice-versa, showing how many different kinds of computerized bilingual dictionaries (CBDs) can be used to help language learners improve their foreign language vocabulary skills. In my research I have studied and written about many types of portable translation devices, software and integrated thousands of websites for over 500 language pairs to enable foreign language learners to get the latest help from innovative CALL technology. My research has covered the following areas, in which I want to continue to contribute to the academic community as well as to better serve students of all language backgrounds, starting with Japanese, all of whom my website can help immensely:

1.Using Computerized Bilingual(ized) Dictionaries:

2. Recommending TESOL Resources/Software/Sites;

3. Training in Vocabulary Learning Strategies Survey & Taxonomy;

4. Recommending Common Core Vocabulary Lists by Topic, Frequency;

5. Linking to On-Line Chat Course, Free TESOL Sites; ESP Use;

6. Teaching Specific Lexical Processing Steps, Skills & Strategies to help maximize language learning; and

7. Using Contemporary Songs to teach good values and Listening and Language Skills.
