ABSTRACT

This paper is a report of a study that attempted to introduce student-centered cultural education into Korean Japanese culture education. Currently, although the importance of cultural education is emphasized in Korean foreign language education, only items stereotyped in the actual curriculum and class are taken up. This is because Japanese culture education in Korea only focuses on the specialty of Japanese culture and teaches only this component to learners. Recently, in the field of education, the idea of learner-based theory has come to attract attention and it attempts a multi-angle practice. It is necessary to connect such theory to Japanese culture education and make use of it in education. By doing so, learners have opportunities to compare and reflect their own culture and Japanese culture and to conceptualize Japanese culture in the process. As an example, Japanese television program "COOL JAPAN - Discover! Cool Nippon "can be cited. By having foreigners living in Japan discuss Japanese culture, you can see the process of recognizing and conceptualizing them . That is exactly connected to a learning-centered education as well. In this research, we also conducted a questionnaire survey on Japanese learners in Korea using the data obtained from them and analyzed the results. What become clear from that is that there is a strong tendency to recognize what is still stereotyped in Korea as Japanese culture. In the future, based on these analyzes, I would like to clarify the process by which Korean learners recognize Japanese culture entirely and I would like to explore further possibilities of "learner subject" education.
