This study selected scenes in which different values and ways of thinking between Koreans and Japanese are revealed in Japanese appreciative linguistic behaviors when they speak. Then, such scenes were produced as illustrations, and a class plan using the illustrations was proposed.
The functions of Japanese appreciative linguistic behaviors were classified into a 'functions as a response to beneficial situations' and a 'function for closing conversations'. Each of these functions was examined based on a review of previous studies, and it was revealed that the Japanese language uses more expressions of apology in the scenes of appreciation than the Korean language does, that there are many cases where the expression of gratitude and apology are used together in the scenes of gratitude. In addition, it was presented that while the Korean language has a variety of expressions that make you feel intimate with the other person, the Japanese language has many formal expressions.
Through this review of previous studies, scenes that Korean learners should pay attention to were selected to produced 11 illustrations. Classes using these illustrations are expected to help students understand the difference values and ways of thinking between Japanese and Korean. The future research task is to introduce the teaching plan proposed in this study into actual classes and report the results in detail.
