Abstract

This paper will explore the integration of translanguaging techniques in the university EFL classroom in Japan. A survey conducted of students regarding their learning preferences uncovered that most students preferred the opportunity to use and be taught in a style that allowed for their L1 (Japanese) to be present in the L2 (English) classroom. As a means to fulfill this preference to language learning and to see what type of impact it would have on students language acquisition and motivation, translanguaging techniques were used in two English classes in comparispn with two English Medium classes to see whether translanguaging had an effect on test results, presentation scores and student motivation both in and out of the classroom. This paper will provide primary data from Japanese university students who undertook classes in a translanguaging style that supports the implementation of translanguaging tehniques in the language classroom.
