This paper addresses problems in the Japanese language education for foreigners. Traditionally, the Japanese language education had been mainly focused on teaching grammar. However, recently the pedagogic interest began to be shift to "what did the learner come to be able to do", not "what does the learner know". Accordingly, the Japanese language education need to seek a new educational principle. As argued by the Nishiguchi(2013) that the contents of the Japanese language education experiencing a paradigm change, this paper aims to discuss the problems and the solutions for the future Japanese language education based on the arguments of Nishiguchi(2013) and Hosokawa(2007).
