Enhancing Higher Order Interpretation Skills for Japanese Reading

Ryu Kitajima
Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


Computer-mediated reading materials can help learners improve their higher order interpretation skills for constructing coherent text representation. As an example, courseware created for improving higher order interpretation skills focuses on anaphoric resolutions and backward inferences, skills particularly important for developing reading skills in Japanese because of the language's tendency to omit referents if they can be reconstructed from the text. Such omissions, because they do not characterize English, present particular difficulties for English-speaking learners of Japanese.
