Wrong yet again Japan!! The best way is to change the way it is taught. I can eat anything, but some things I don't like. Learn how to teach the fundamentals properly for the first time, and people might actually improve. Listen to native speakers and actually get the students to speak it themselves, not just listen and write, and then hope they can speak English!!!

I have noticed the pay for ALTs has dropped a lot. Difficult to see anything much more than 250,000 yen a month on the gaijinpot ads.

If the classes are badly managed by inexperienced teachers, students will come to hate English.

That could explain why Japanese overall have such poor English abilities.

Totally agree. It is the teachers that really influence a student's interest in the subject.
