This paper introduces the idea of adopting a Learner-Centered Approach into second language
teaching in Japan. First, it discusses the importance and effectiveness of Learner-Centered Approach based on the previous research. Then, it presents three case studies of courses at the university level that employ the pedagogical approach, and explores how Weimer’s (2013) five key changes can be applied. Finally, recommendations for facilitating the shift from teacher-centered to learner-centered pedagogy are provided.
