Abstract: This paper reports on a study related to linear and non-linear communication activities in first year English communication classes at Nagasaki University. Previously collected 1st year English communication student feedback reflects low interest and motivation to write narratives in both English and Japanese. Students report that combining English narrative writing with Mind Mapping and Visual Mapping is more interesting, more useful and challenging. Data also reflects that the perception of imagination varies depending on the faculty. Visual mapping is an effective method to exercise imagination. Non-linear activities promote learner motivation to improve the quality of linear and non-linear communication.
