This qualitative inquiry is characterized by field observations in the natural setting of an elementary level, Japanese immersion school. The observations included one fifth-grade classroom and one kindergarten classroom. The purpose was to discover what roles three strategies that I observed had in the comprehension of the Japanese language that took place in the kindergarten and fifth-grade
classrooms. Specifically, three categories of strategies that I observed while at the Japanese immersion school were oral language drills, music, and dramatization/ games.
