Research is being conducted on the second language acquisition theory to promote continuous improvement of English language proficiency through motivation and learning environment factors. The effects of TBL (task-based learning) on vocabulary learning and the acquisition of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) are measured and practical research is conducted on classes for learners who have difficulty with English communication.

Research is also conducted on early-age English education based on the second language acquisition theory, and analyzing classes mainly in elementary schools. Teaching methods for elementary English and end-of-term evaluation are being studied.

For online classes, a type of class is practiced in which face-to-face classes are delivered simultaneously online. A survey of the academic abilities and attitudes of students taking face-to-face and online classes is being conducted. While analyzing any gap, effective and optimum teaching and evaluation methods are being studied.
