    Why can't Japanese teachers of English ... speak English?

    Because ........ they don't need to.

    Their goal is basically to get students to pass an exam which tests their knowledge of grammar and spelling.

    Disillusioned:

    Couldn't agree with you any more. Having lived in Japan for a good number of years, I'd say the old folks aren't the only ones with failing 'cognitive functions'.

    I don't know what it is, real lack of driving abilities, slow reflexes, selfishness, laziness, stupidity, or a blatant disregard for other people's lives.

    And please, just get rid of the pedestrian crossings here and save some paint. They serve no purpose at all because most drivers can't see them.

    I was trying to cross the road the other day. Although there were pedestrian lights and they were green, I could hear a car approaching. It was my prerogative to cross, but seeing this was Japan, I stopped. And rightly so. The woman driver just turned right without even blinking, even though I'd already had one foot on the road. Nasty (but predictable) drivers. Absolutely nasty.

    Most of the public would have preferred a different candidate (品客薯片叔叔) to Lam who just represents the same old same old, kowtowing to Beijing and putting them before the people and interests of Hong Kong. Hell she might even take the oath in Mandarin.

    Even the Japanese are allowed to vote which corrupt politicians they want in government (albeit with up to 5 votes for rural voters). Beijing will choose the corrupt ones for the Hongkongers. One day, maybe one day.

    Wouldn't be so bad if he didn't throw money like confetti on each trip.

    Plus, he's not photogenic. Not by a long shot.

    It would help a bit if drivers paid more attention and also not ignore red lights as if their lives depended on it. Can drivers please also look left too when they're turning into another street. Absolutely appalling level of driving compared to US and UK.

    At this very moment I couldn't care less what the vile Trump or his excuse of a human son thinks or tweets.

    Yes it can, everyone can live without China, just takes some guts and people with backbone, collectively.

    If you don't mind paying higher prices, yes.

    But back to Fukushima - I'd rather buy fruit and vegetables from, say, Kagoshima, than Fukushima.

    fxgai:

    This crazy draw situation was bad at the Aussie Open too, but there it was that Federer met Nishikori in the 4th round there rather than one of the other bigger guns.

    Well, I guess this tournament evens everything out then.

    Nadal vs Federer is going to be interesting. Can Federer do it again or will Nadal exact revenge?

    I read that visitors for most countries have dropped, including those from China (you know, those with $$$$ to spend) and Europe. BUT, visitors from Russia have increased. It's good that Russians now have a second home country to visit. Well done, President Bannon.

    The very high % of Japanese men who don't wash their hands after going to the toilet is shocking.

    It's doubly shocking when they've been doing number two. Absolutely disgusting.

    This '記憶にありません' excuse always proves to be useful for LDP politicians/criminals. But it's wearing thin.

    As I've said before, I have absolutely no problem if someone wants to get lung cancer and other diseases by smoking. Helps to keep the population down. I just wish they wouldn't drag other people down with them. And I'd wish they'd pay for their own medical expenses.

    Oh FGS, I personally find this humiliating. I remember once in Yokohama, in the middle of nowhere special, a woman set up stall with her monkey. I was hoping the monkey might make the woman do some tricks but alas.

    Jeez, even the monkey is this photo looks bored.

    I would like to know what the elephant was being trained to do.

    Hmm, for circus tricks?

    The conditions in the typical Japanese zoo leaves a lot to be desired.

    Other zoo staff called the police saying “an employee was attacked by an elephant”,

    I would have thought paramedics rather than police would be the first to be called. Police won't be able to provide medical treatment.

    What next? Will I have to inform the authorities when relatives come to stay at my place?

    I think the government, somehow, is just trying to squeeze out more taxes from people.

    Gaffe-prone Finance Minister Taro Aso recently questioned the long-established link between smoking cigarettes and lung cancer.

    Just what exactly is this fool smoking?

    Delicious:

    Then perhaps your accent is the problem. The way I see it, Siri is accommodating different languages, not accents. There's no such thing as the Chinese language - there are many, eg Wu, Yue, Mandarin - and they're as different to each other as Portuguese is to Romanian.
