【本授業の目的およびねらい】Objectives of this course                                                   

In this course, students will study a psycholinguistic approach to second language processing/acquisition. This course will revolve around the topic "linguistic relativity (Does language change the way we observe the world?)"; students will study the relationship between language and thought in the bilingual's mind. By finding, reading, and summarizing primary sources, students will be able to develop their research skills, reading skills, and organizational skills. Furthermore, through in-class discussions with peers, students will be able to master how to read academic articles critically and how to turn a question into a new original research.
