It goes without saying that all English teachers should be fully qualified to teach the subject. But these teachers are expensive and so Japan goes for the backpacking crowd to whom they can pay totally piss poor salaries without complaint. My friend runs a small 3 school English conversation school chain . He told me he recently advertised for 2 full time teachers, offering a monthly salary of 160,000 yen and no insurance and still received a flood of applications! Half jokingly he said he would offer only 150,000 yen a month next time. With such low wages no wonder English education in Japan is so mediocre.
Posted in: English will be taught once or twice a week to third- and fourth-graders, and three times a week to fifth- and sixth-graders.

Companies to save the cash- ha ha ha, anyone could have told you that. Abe's nomics totally flawed and useless from the start. Japan is so totally screwed. And they still expect to be able to attract decent foreign, non-english teaching workers!

hey no problem, the japanese are fully prepared to give up their lives to their companies. Let's shoganai and gaman ourselves.

Yes prices are rising in the supermarkets all right. But don't worry, the companies are happy, the little people will pay. They will just shoganai and gaman themselves as per usual.

Japan is collapsing, even more so after April. I hope all foreigners have done the sensible thing and converted their wealth already into dollars and euros?? You'd be crazy to hang onto yen.

Yes of course, people are buying everything they can now until the tax rises and Abe claims it's all "working" After April Japan is so totally screwed.
gogogo couldn't agree more. Abe only cares about the companies and businesses. The little people are most defintely not on his agenda. They will just gaman and shoganai themselves as per usual.

A huge boost to the economy until April as people buy anything they can before the rate rises. After April, total oblivion. Abe doesn't care he's a multi -billionaire as are all the useless pathetic politicians.

Of course. The Japanese economy will be screwed even more than it is now. But Abe and his gang, billionaires, don't give a damn about the ordinary little people. He knows that being Japanese they will gaman and shoganai themselves as always. So no protests as ever.
