Posted in: Why are Japanese so bad at English? See in context

Hi from Tokyo. Imho the worst problem is the attitude of Japanese people.

I'd like to mention two points:

Japan's mentality, so-called 島国根性 (shimaguni-konjo) lit. "mentality of island nation." Their days complete only in Japanese words, no need to learn others. And therefore they don't get used to see people from other nations. Japanese people weighs on precision. Most people believes "my English speaking is no more than 70% perfect" (or 97% or 20% or whatever less than 100.00%) - they give up themselves.

First point looks somewhat similar to English-speaking nations - People believe they don't need to learn any other languages. But I like them - they do try only a few words, let's say Kawaii or Oishii. This is the attitude Japanese don't have. :D

Posted in: Do you think Japanese companies would do better if they decreased their presence in China and looked at countries such as Myanmar or Vietnam to invest in? See in context

ASEAN is far more stable and safer than mainland China ;) (Imho I'd like to add Taiwan too)

Chinese companies even don't have any thought on stealing intellectual property.
