Abstract :Teaching methodologies in English as a Second Language (ESL) have long sought "the best method," though the results never seem to be conclusive. In English classrooms in Japan, teachers use the socalled "eclectic method" as a result. It is still true that methodological trends basically shift according to the most popular theories at the time of teaching. For example, English education in Japan recently has undertaken a major reform, introducing the teaching of English in public elementary schools and further encouraging teachers to use mainly English in classrooms. In this paper, I argue that teachers, school administrators, and policy makers must not underestimate the magnitude of changes in their language-teaching policies and methods. That argument leads us to realize the necessity of examining empirically the effects of learning activities such as "reading-aloud," "rapid-material listening," "shadowing," and "dictation," among others. At the end of the paper, I listed several keywords with which teachers can use to access resources from different learning/teaching perspectives, which would be useful for teachers when analyzing the learner and the environment.
