Billions people swim in the river (one of favourite childhood playtime) in India and other developing countries, still strong as an adult.

Posted in: University entrance exam to test reading, listening for English See in context

Don't blame Japan or Japanese. Blame the English language for being international and if this seems stupid, then let's be fair with this,

One of the three major (Japanese, Chinese Mandarin and Korean) should be compulsory language subject in most of the developed Western countries plus Australia and New Zealand and even Africa.

This way the world becomes more diversity than ever, not let dominated by English.

Only works in Taiwan and SouthEast Asian Countries.

And why these celebrities go for rich nations only? They are already dping what they can. So, Why don't they visit developing countries first and teach those about the proper environment if they really want to save the planet.

Perhaps they just want to highlight their status time to time, for the extra money and free stuff?

To work in Japan, u need to speak more Japanese than English. Don't show off your English! SouthEast Asian people are very arrogant at this plus they always blah blah about how life and work are much better in Western and why can't in Japan?

Because of the language English, Not Japanese.

Japan has such an amazing culture about the ghost but don't have their own Yurei and Yokai day, i would put it as 'YAY' day, on Jan 31st.

All of them earn over £300,000 a year. For sitting, listening, gossiping, talking, murmuring, even eating, sometimes slamming, laughing and mostly joking. Where's the real work? Perhaps those are. How parliament!

Nice...if only these Halloween idiots have guts to celebrate in the big dark jungle during those nights....Only few would come out alive next morning.

Posted in: Japan likely to face shortage of 270,000 nursing staff by 2025 See in context

Just thinking of taking care of strangers is already a problem at first but still some wants to have a career. So to respect that achievement, nurses should have title as 'Nrs.', like Dr. For Doctors.

But nurses think themselves superior and bully caretakers. Those caretakers are the one doing more work..more better caring to the patients, Nurses just give medicines on time and follow doctors. They don't wipe the dirt like caretakers do. Patients also feel more closer to the caretakers and those are all poor staff from poor countries.
