Abstract :Textbooks used in Japanese grade schools (i.e ., elementary school. junior high school, and senior high school) are written under the guidance (i.e., Course of Study) of the Ministry of Education, Science. and Culture (MEXT). As widely acknowledged, the current version of the Course of Study issued in 2008 announced that learning English as a foreign language activity was to become a part of the elementary school curriculum (2008). By the year 2020, a new Course of Study is scheduled to be in effect, which expects to emphasize that English learning should be viewed as a continuous act across all grade levels from elementary school to college. One can easily imagine that such a shift in English education. subsequently, will heavily influence what should be taught in class due to a hasty implementation of English learning at very young ages. The present study is a textbook analysis that allows us to evaluate whether a current textbook used in a college adequately provides sufficient amount of learning opportunities, especially word knowledge, under the prospective educational reform.
