These trainees should just go to western countries where they are very much welcome and will be fairly treated

You have to wonder if Japan was their last choice for many of them.

Japan is their only choice

Even though there are (allegedly) "abused" trainees, the majority are happy that this kind of opportunity is available to them

I don't know any Western country that accept this kind of workers

Legally, at least

Parents are expected to look into these things before moving in to a foreign country and should factor it when they make their decision to take their kids with them

If it doesn't fit your principles, don't move

Posted in: Vietnamese trainees told to undergo contraception to work in Japan See in context

Sad reality is, once you become a business owner, your priority changes (and your values)

All my Western friends who run their own businesses (mostly eikaiwa schools) were the first ones to complain about these things you are all talking about in this thread until they became business owners and turned in to someone they used to hate

They cut corners, avoid hiring females, hire the cheapest Filipino they can find, etc etc

This is a universal thing

There are always desparate people willing to accept anything that business owners take advantage of

Posted in: Osaka nursery going extra mile to stop Vietnamese kids falling behind See in context

Good effort but not necessarily something the others should or must also do

Based on my personal experience, my advice is, parents should worry about their kids speaking their own (foreign) native language more than the Japanese language.

It's common to see kids who end up struggling to communicate in their parents native language as they grow up.

@David Brent

I agree and that's a universal thing i believe. Not just in Japan.

I have very few fears surrounding living in Japan.

My biggest fear, though, is getting mixed up with the Japanese police or being accused of something I didn't do.

@Jimizo

I mean, not telling people randomly but if it’s brought up or you’re talking about backgrounds how would Europeans usually say for example if their dad is Danish and their mom’s German?

I can imagine this is not an uncommon case

@wallace

So it’s mainly a race thing then?

It’s probably why you almost don’t hear anyone refer to people with one Japanese parent and one, let’s say, Chinese or Korean parent as “half” as they are all asians

This is interesting for me a i never thought saying “half” would have a different meaning other than simply your parents are from two different backgrounds

The term hafu/half is not used outside of Japan.

I see, so if I was in England for example and I tell someone that I am half Welsh and half English

That would be strange?

Posted in: Portrayals of duality: 'Hafu' in the media and popular culture See in context

Is it better to say someone is "part x and part y" as supposed to describing someone as half?

I think the using term half is not a big deal outside Japan
