Abstract:   This study assessed social science students’ motivations for learning English, English lessons they want to get, and the current methods of studying English using text mining. This study adopted open-ended questions. Data from the openended questions were inputted and analyzed using software : Text Mining Studio Ver. 5. Word frequency analysis, dependency frequency analysis, characteristic word extraction, and characteristic dependency extraction were conducted. Participants were 108 first-year students majoring in social sciences in a private university in Tokyo. They were divided into three groups according to their TOEIC scores.   Results revealed that many participating students learned English because they think that English is necessary to obtain employment in a globalized society. Students in the lower TOEIC group tend to study English without a set goal. Those in the middle TOEIC group tend to study English because they want to communicate in English. Students in the higher TOEIC group tend to study English while considering globalization and job-hunting. Results show that most students want to take lessons to enhance English communication skills. Students in the higher TOEIC group generally want to take TOEIC preparation lessons.
