This is a great article. I think I know why Japanese are more confident to speak English with the native speaker than the Japanese. As a person whose English is not my native language, I always feel more confident to speak English with the native speaker as well, unless I am really good at it. The reason is because ( for me personally) some people might tease or make fun of me because they think they are better than me. Now, with the native speaker they “might” feel funny when I pronounce some words or trying to put sentence together, but then they will think like “ohh well, English is not her native language anyway…” I have been living in the English speaking country for nearly 7 years, sometimes people can’t hardly hear my accent. But, at some point (maybe when I talk in a hurry) my accent is starting to show. Speaking English like a native can really be hard or easy for some people. But one should not be worry about it. More practice with native speaker will be the best bet to help us.
