Attitudes of Students Towards Lessons Using Video Materials


This paper examines the attitudes of students toward lessons using video materials in the context of teaching the Japanese language to foreign students. Previous teaching methods in the field have shifted from grammar lectures to communication-based student-centered learning approaches. Consequently, the use of video content has gained popularity due to its effectiveness in enhancing learning outcomes and providing real-life examples difficult to express in a foreign language. In this research study, a survey was conducted on 56 Mongolian university students learning Japanese to assess the importance of video lessons in Japanese language classes and gather students' feedback on their experiences with video-based teaching. 96.4% of students believed that video lessons were necessary, indicating a strong interest and enthusiasm for incorporating video content into their learning experience. To find the motivational factors that motivate students, a factor search was conducted on 20 questions of motivation to learn Japanese and based on these questions: Factor I-identified regulation, Factor II-intrinsic motivation, and Factor III- external regulation. The survey results suggest that the use of video materials in Japanese language lessons can be highly effective. Students expressed a preference for video-based teaching, highlighting its potential to enhance motivation and create a real learning experience. Additionally, students who attended lessons using video materials reported higher satisfaction levels. Therefore, incorporating video materials into the classroom can be an effective approach to improving students' attitudes and learning outcomes in foreign language education.
