Abstract Alternative
Teacher-centered teaching could cause a serious problem for learner-centered education. Students in teacher training take a close look at their own teaching skills. Recent classes aim at teaching skills for learning acceleration. However, based on the observation of their mimic Japanese language classes, it turned out that many students in teacher training cannot plan classes aimed at learning acceleration. I advised those students in teacher training to brush up previous class plans from the learning accelerating perspective. As a result, they submitted various improvements. These improvements include reorganization for higher thinking activities, addition of teaching materials for more elaborate plans, and class plans aimed at integrating teaching materials with learners' experiences and daily lives. Students in teacher training tend to take teacher-centered styles. In order to rectify this problem, therefore, it is imperative for coordinators of Japanese teacher training courses to let the students realize the importance of learning acceleration during class planning with the help of some specific models at the university level.
