Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) The first author has implemented college English classes emphasizing face-to-face oral interactions within small groups of students in class, presupposing and expecting further cultivation of learners' ability to learn for themselves, by themselves and among themselves. Previous experiences confirm such expectations, and the authors are currently working on compiling spoken corpora of learners' interactions with relatively high-quality audio and video recordings of those interactions. Students participating in those English classes take English proficiency tests such as TOEIC^[○!R] and Versant for English so that segments of recorded utterances may come with tags designating proficiency of the learner who is responsible for the segment. It is interesting to note, in passing, how introduction of such digital recording devices into the classroom environment positively affect students' motivations and performances in those practices. In this interim report, we also touch on our transcription procedures and possible tools, while detailing our recording procedures and project goals.
