One point that was not mentioned about Japanese management of foreign workers was the Japanese Tatemai approach (Useless flattery)aimed at teachers for all purposes. Teachers are often told from the day they land here that they are "Great","Sugoi" "ii sensei". When really they havent done anything special at all. This unrealistic attitude causes more harm than good when suddenly a simple complaint or misunderstanding arises and the teachers are not so "Great" anymore. True sincerity is disregarded in this country. A bad teacher could become a good-one if mistakes are pointed out timely and corrected appropriately. They got teachers all over Japan thinking they are God's gift to the English language, only because they are told so by their J-counterparts.
