This session was part of a lecture series by SIM University's School of Arts and Social Sciences, Singapore Association for Applied Linguistics, and the English Language and Literature Department of NIE.It was an insightful session as Dr Shintani shared findings from her study on Japanese learners of English at a university in Japan.
