I went to a high school where English was taught in a grammar class, composition class and conversation class. We were, of course, tested for different skills in each of these classes. Japanese people in general know so much more English than American people know Spanish. What is lacking is their listening comprehension and speaking ability. What works best for Japanese people who try to master English is to expose themselves to living English on daily bases. If you live in area where this is not possible, you can listen to daily English conversation program on radio or TV. Get used to listening to spoken English and expressing your feeling and thoughts in English.
