Posted in: Record 35,000 foreign students need Japanese language training See in context

Parents should not come to a country (for work or for whatever reasons) and push the kids to a local school and expect the school to provide special care! My son's elementary school has a couple of kids from China who do not understand Japanese and the parents are always avoiding contacts by the school because they themselves cannot speak the language!

I myself can speak Chinese and the headmaster called me once for help. He put the Chinese kid (who's in Grade 5) on the phone and the kid cried, saying that he couldn't understand a word the teacher was saying. That he would like to become friends with his classmates and play with them but he simply couldn't communicate with them!

We all have to learn to speak English if we want to get into a public school in an English-speaking country. I don't know why the local schools here admit these kids in the first place!

Japan's so-called research whaling

I'm against whale hunting but I thought news articles were supposed to be neutral? Is there any proof that the whales being hunt are not for research use?

Apologizing for sth you didnt do is hard enough. being asked repeatedly to do that will only make the apology less and less sincere to those who demand that.... -.-"What do these ppl want?!

It is simply not a common practice here to adopt children. People would rather spend millions in funinchiryo... How sad.

Probably not neccessary but should be enough to show Japan is trying their best at ensuring the US leader will have a safe visit.

'according to this new data'......-.-" Yeah what new data? After you have turned down all the search results by other countries? This certainly isnt a good enough answer/explanation for those who have families on board. They must be hidin something.... However slim the chance is, i hope the passengers are still alive somewhere.:(

Posted in: Malaysian plane probe focuses on cockpit crew See in context

The malaysian govt asked for help yet they kept saying NAHHH THATS NOT IT to the foundings by the helping countries. I saw a TV program a few days ago. There was this analyst who suggested that the plane might have been hijacked and perhaps negotiation with the malay govt was going on and hence the weird behavior by the govt. and perhaps thats why the passengers were not texting their relatives.I just hope they are all alive at least. Keep praying guys.

Posted in: Gov't says Fukushima decontamination likely to be finished by 2017 See in context

Isnt 100 billion yen enough to simply help the people to relocate? I am sure it sucks to leave the hometown for good but the people there will only be disappointed again when the govt later says sorry guys we simply cant make it by 2017. Just as wanderlust san said above, rain and wind, which are totally unpredictable, could hinder the decontamination largely. So perhaps other than giving false hope to the people there again and again, how about provding other options for them. Im sorry right now i can only think of moving the people though...:( They just found an island melted with the mainland right?

I agree with you TrevorPeace1. Drivers tend to be too familiar with their routes that they become careless. Hope there will be no more of this over the holodays.

Posted in: Triumphant Tokyo delegation returns to big welcome See in context

Yeah I saw on TV too about the Olympic village on a few TV channels already. They never mention how much it will cost but only the benefits it will bring. I'm happy that Tokyo won but if there's so much land and resources, perhaps the ppl living in prefab homes or close to the nuclear plant should have been relocated to the capital? O well if that happens everyone will want to be relocated.... how about the families with kids come first?
