Abstract

During the past few years, along with the increasing interest in movies in EFL classrooms, awareness of and interest in the use of closed captions has been growing among teachers, students and researchers. Because this interest is relatively recent, however, research in this area is very limited in Japan. This paper reports on the results of research studies on closed-captioned television or video materials conducted during the past 15 years in the United States where this technology was originally developed,and suggests what implication this may have for the EFL classroom in Japan. The findings appear to confirm the view that captioned video materials are a powerful motivating tool and can be successfully used in Japan not only for improving students' listening comprehension,but also for reading and vocabulary development. Suggestions for further research are also inc1uded.
