Visualization of Phonetic Markers for Early ESL Learners in Japan

K. R. Wrobetz

Himeji Dokkyo University, Japan

This research presents a visual system of phonetic markers linked to both the Japanese kana system and natural English vocabulary with the aim to break young students of the habit of imposing the Japanese phonetic structure to natural English vocabulary. The system was tested on a group of 20 Japanese elementary school students, and drastically improved students’ scores in pronunciation and reading tests. This suggests that the implementation of just such a system stands to have a high degree of success in formal educational environments in the Japanese education system.
