Don’t call it Grammar-Translation

J. A. Perez de Camino

Kyoto University of Foreign Studies, Japan

Supporters of extensive reading often refer to mainstream English instruction in Japanese secondary schools as “grammar-translation” or as “yakudoku”, because it heavily relies on explicit grammar teaching, and on word by word translation into Japanese (eg., Sakurai, 2015). While this presentation is sympathetic with the cause of ER, it argues that the use of those labels is unwarranted and should be avoided. It does so by examining the two methodologies at the origin of those two terms, and by highlighting some of the ways in which they clearly differ from such current mainstream English instruction.
