I like to shout it out....

....change the way English is taught here, less of mesmerizing grammar

test but active learning of the language and please get the Japanese

English teacher to talk in English when teaching. As it was mentioned

by Tokyo-Engr split up the budget between the JET and focus support

those who are keen in progressing in the language such as sponsor

exchange program,abroad visiting, home stay, incentives,more English

study material available and affordable, event gathering local and foreigner from countries from every part of the world etc.....have a vision in focus Yes, definitely

encouraging overseas travel have great influences in opening up our thinking

and experiences ....

Poor parenting...birth rate is down the hill in Japan, yet young life are lost so often.. Children supervision is so poor here, I often see yochien children playing at the roadside or children running across the road and mother running after them....God bless his soul.

Posted in: 5 reasons foreigners find it hard to become friends with Japanese people See in context

Well..I make a few jp friends during the 2 years here, invited them over my place for lunch. Not too close but yet could go down a bit personal.. I agreed that it's not easy and need a lot of effort and you need to take the first step.. 2nd...3rd......at times I just lost interest. Most of them whom I know are mothers and they don't show much interest in getting to know you better. To be frank I find them rather boring...their conversation is so narrow though I could only understand and speak simple jp. They don't even try to speak a word of English...hopefully..hopefully I'll able to see some changes in the future......

Posted in: Ideally, should English teachers at schools in Japan be native speakers? Can non-native English speakers do just as well or better? See in context

No no but yes..The Education Of Ministry should recruite both ..students should have the exposure that English is not spoken just like this but also like that...iirrespective whether native or non, teacher must be dedicated and able to teach out of the text book too. They should be able to give guidance and make conversation with students...communication is part of learning any language....
