Hi, this is Masayuki.
Few weeks ago, I read an article about 'educational system' compared with Asian country by TIME magazine. In Japan, we are doing '[i]Yutori Kyoiku[/i], or not so much strict study. Some people said that it makes children easy to give up many things. I can understand this point. I have a part time job to teach English to high school students or junior high school students in Japan. I can feel that through this job, students neglect to study. Even if teachers or parents try to pursuade to study for his or her future, they do not care. They want to enjoy 'now'.
How about your country's system? I would like to be an English teacher in Japan, so I would like to know aboout that!
