also some of the foreign girls you meet at the various bars also work on you.they are called "drink back girls"there.mostly,they are the one's who drug you as they move you from bar to bar and strike your card somewhere.not forgetting,the "ladyboys" at motown ,they steal your wallets.just be careful

shuii-i speak some japanese as well but not to point i can express my self fully n at times u need at least one person ho can at least speak english.that does not mean arrogance.in many cities around the world where they all have their native languages a considerable number speak english.mind you ,am not a native speaker but learnt it cos i knew it is the international language now.ve u bothered to ask why certain centres designated for foreigners are manned by people who cannot babble no other word than "sank you".

guys,give them a break,at least they ve secured a job .look at the unemployed graduates around the world at least corporate japan does well.even in reccession ,they do massive recuiting unlike in other countries.give credit where it is due
samsarksMar. 12, 2009 - 04:08PM JST
its disturbing.many times ve been to govt offices,banks ,hospitals etc and there is not a single soul who speaks english.for now,english is the accepted international language so it will prudent if they encourage some of its people to learn the language.

thenewfront-knowing current political affairs and current world history does not give you the impetus to believe u r better than a jp uni grad.i ve met numerous jp grads and i must confess they r great scholars.you r just a great loser panting over nothing meaningful.as i said,uni is not the only way to success but it really counts

samsarksMar. 10, 2009 - 11:54PM JST
thenewfront-i read your earlier post and the word "most" is not there.i might not be wrong on my understanding.you might be so pompous to believe that you are better than any japanese on this board who went to uni
samsarksMar. 10, 2009 - 10:24PM JST
thenewfront-the fact that u did not go to uni but you made it means uni is irrelevant.to me ,my sociology major shaped me and helps me make informed choices and decisions.pls comment constructively
samsarksMar. 10, 2009 - 08:20PM JST
thenewfront-Universities are usually to get a degree so they and their mama and pap's can show off about it.
I disagree on this.uni shapes you,a platform for knowledge acquisition,research among others. unless you want to refer to some uni's in particular.though,it might not be the only way to success.
