    Abstract

    Currently, both linguistic and cultural aspects are essential in foreign language learning process. However Japanese language courses at National University of Malaysia (UKM) still emphasize on the grammar aspects of the language. The usage of teaching material namely Erin ga Chousen! Nihongo Dekimasu seems to fulfill language instructor's aspiration in looking for a material that synthesizes cultural aspects in language learning classroom. The mechanism applied in this action research give prominence to student centered learning environment. This action research was implemented in two cycles. The first cycle was treated as a pilot and some improvement has been done in the 2 nd cycle based on the findings and report from the 1 st cycle. However there were only minor changes in the 2 nd cycle mainly when students were required to present their assignments using Japanese language. The mechanism received positive feedback from the students through their commitment in completing and presenting their assignment as well as their determination in presenting using Japanese language. The action research method also encourages teachers to systematically introduce new teaching material or method that are beneficial in language teaching and learning.
