And Japan is 27 in 30 countries. This is the question to Japanese Businessman that "What is your self-investment", English is 8.5 persent. And "If you were student, what have you should?" English is 63.1 percent in Number 1. This resourlt shows that they consider English is so important although it is through.
Why they can not use English well regardless of therir diligent charactaristic.A paerson show that answer. He think the reason that the goverment make us dislike English. The goverment admit "Japanese need english education more", and they started to have a plan that "The action for japanese to use English", it began to learn english in school from middle school students to Elementary school students. But Japanese teacher is teaching for them. Actually almost of them can not use English well, although they teach them English over talking to in Japanese. They know the answer of test but not to know how to speak and use. That is very wonder thing student have learned english from a person who don't know English. I mean if we change native level of english teacher from them, we can imporve it efficently. Goverment just protect employment of Japanese teacher who are public empoyee.
We have learned English for 8 years from middle school to university, taht make us to have complex not to use english. In spite of 8 years, they can not use it at all. But that is tric of statistics. Actuay we don't have time so much to learn it. we have a english class in a day, and 5 days in one week, and 40 week in one year, we have 200 hour by multiplying 5 and 40, The sum of learnning time is only 68 days( almost 3 months ) in 8 years. It means English is not difficult to Japanese, they just don't have enought time to learn it.
