Description

In the context of Japanese as a Foreign Language (JFL) classrooms, this talk will focus on displays of affect as both expressive and inherent components of communication and cognition. This talk will analyze the limited nature of pedagogical assessments of learner production of affective responses, as well as the classroom connections between affective responses and experiences. Finally, some areas of mismatch between learner expectations and survey responses provided evidence of learner misconstrual of affect domains.  These findings will be discussed for their pedagogical value with respect to expanding learner opportunities to engage with and deploy linguistic expressions of affect in Japanese
