23 Jun The real voice of japanese students

The real voice of Japanese university students about their English learning in JHS and HS. Filmed in December 2009, about 30 students analyzed their language learning histories and then wrote recommendations for students, teachers, and the ministry of education (MEXT).

    To all Asian people: We westerners are much more pragmatic and won't judge you if you make grammar mistakes.
    Our cultures embrace trial and failure as a legitimate way to success.
    Don't be afraid to just try. Make as many mistakes as you need to improve. Language must be learnt together!

    Good for you guys, speaking out. No one will know there's a problem unless you tell them. Good going! "The squeaky wheel gets the oil." <English idiom for you.

    Since you do not output what you were taught at schools, you cannot speak English! You're only lazy learners! lol

    Without the knowledge of the language, you cannot even write an essay to show your ideas. lol

    There is only one that can be done for you to learn English.
    Stop teaching the 3000 Kanji from childhood and focus on English.
    Boom ! Problem solved.
    That how I learned English. My school neglected Hindi and focus on English and now I'm good in English but fucking bad in Hindi.😂

    I suspect the teachers of English grammar focus on it heavily because one teacher of grammar is cheaper than having multiple native speakers work one on one with multiple students. It is also easier for a non-native speaker to memorize grammatic rules and teach a class there than fluently speak the language with students.

    They should do conversation practice with people online and Japanese schools should make that part of formal education. Hiring native speakers online should keep the costs down because there's a much bigger supply of native English speakers in the world than those willing to be physically present at a Japanese school. Keeping the costs down should allow the Japanese schools to hire more English conversationalists and help students get more practice.

    in this video, most of them speak at a normal pitch, but i dont get why so many japanese woman usually speak in such a high pitched voice and childish behavior. i still find it unpleasant and strange. is it because of tradition or a newer thing? for me it seems like they do it because they want to appear in a certain way. it seems more like acting then just beeing yourself. but i'm not here to judge. just find it strange. i like japanese culture so much, but this voice pitching is something that still confuses me to this day.

    This is an old video. This is just a comment. But for whatever it is worth, for anyone reading: If you are learning, or want to learn a language, yes, the best way is to use it. The ideal scenario is you in the land where this language is native. Go there and use THAT language, not yours, not english. Use only that language even if you can form only 5 sentences. Before googling a word you want to use at the moment, try describing it to your partner with whatever other words you know, pantomime it, do whatever! First of all body language is more or less universal so you will be understood. But most importantly, usually your partner will say to you the word and you ll learn it. Also because your exposure to the new word/phrase is longer (and more fun!) it will be easier to remember. And know that most people will be happy to help you with that, and will be happy that you try to use their laguage, and WONT judge you for mistakes. So dont be afraid to make mistakes. 🙂
    Im from greece and for the last 5-6 years I ve been living and studying in germany. Back in greece i went in a "german school". We had the standard curriculum of greek schools, plus 8 hours of german a week. The only important difference? Most of the subjects were taught in german from german teachers. That was great, in my first year i was much much better than other friends of mine who had been learning german for years. After I was finished with school I came to germany to study. In the university I didnt have any issues understanding. It was exactly like I had been taught, "right german". But on the street, meeting new people? I felt like i knew NOTHING. Back in my school, yes, we were exposed a lot to the language and would speak it, with actual germans, but it was just this sterile "student-teacher in a class with 30 kids" kind of using the language.
    Some of my friends from school had also come in the same city as me. Some I liked and some not, but at times i would end up being with them just because it was a familiar group. First semesters go by, still going to the university, still living there but I had found myself being friends only with the greeks and actually forgetting some german. How could that be? Im in germany, surrounded by german, i should be naturally improving. Well, no. So i started drifting away from the greeks, at the end i was only with them only because it was more comfortable regarding the language. Lets meet new people, lets use the laguage! Ok, how do I do that? I am also really shy. It took time, but in the end i made it. I screamed a big loud FUCK YOU to all my irrational fears about meeting people and using the language and went out. Now I know many people around here, from all over the world, and my german flow naturally (although there are still so many things to learn, but now some of these people are also friends! so i ll make it. still working on the shy thing, but doing better with time, through trial-error). Most of the other people from my school that went/go to the same university as me stuck together (except 2). Some have totally given up on the language. They will just hear it in the university and use it only to order a coffee. Therefore some dont even understand it that good now, not even simple things, things that i know the knew in german.

    Aaaanyway.. Got carried away again. Take what you want from it. Thanks if you took the time to read this thing. Now go make some mistakes in a language you barely know! 🙂

    This is awesome. I don't have to do exams and that is exactly how I am learning Japanese. I've learned hundreds of words but have barely touched grammar yet. Learn what you will use most often first and don't get bogged down with stuff you really won't need until much later.
    I also think too much emphasis is placed on speaking like a native in any language too, especially at the early levels. I love accents, the thicker the better, they make our boring old language sound so much better. The aim should be to be clearly understood, not have to blend in seamlessly with the native population.

    Love this. Thank you for your honesty. I've always wanted to teach English in Japan, but I fear that at 30yrs old, I may be too old and missed my chance.

    The guy with the glasses is uh, kinda cute 😊Very cute, in fact hehe.That aside…I am revisiting this video after eight years. I remember and miss it. I talked with friends who grew up in Japan and teach Japanese. It's difficult to try to change something that's been ingrained, but it's changing little by little. So that is great. I hope for only positive changes 😊

    Use English in schools and Offices. Make it as one of your Official Languages just like the Philippines.
