||Kim, Hye Jeong. (2018). Learning formulaic sequences using a sitcom in a second-language classroom. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 26(1), 119-143. The purpose of this study is to consider effective approaches to the acquisition of formulaic sequences using a sitcom in a classroom and to consider the necessity and possibility of learning and teaching using sitcoms. To find out what teachers should focus on when using sitcoms as learning material in their classrooms, this study consists of two groups of subjects: an experimental group that focuses on the story, context, and situation of characters in a sitcom; and a control group that focuses on linguistic analysis and grammatical explanation of sentence structure. The results show that teaching using the story and context of a sitcom has a more positive effect on learning formulaic sequences than linguistic analysis and grammar. Visual media such as sitcoms have the substantial advantage of having their own stories and diverse situations in which characters are placed. Teaching and learning formulaic sequences using visual media can be beneficial as a way to connect them with the story and its specific situations. Formulaic sequences and specialized patterns contribute to a speakers fluency in communication. It is necessary for learners to notice and recognize formulaic sequences and to try to acquire them.
