Book Quote Review -12

"考えても見て下さい。中学、高校と6年間も英語を勉強してモノにできなかったのです。同じやり方をして上達するはずがありません。"

『英語を学ぶのは40歳からがいい』 菊間ひろみ著


    I don't agree with you on this book title, but I agree with you on the sentences which I quote. It may be surprising to the rest of the Japanese but it seems to be true that most of us Japanese people cannot speak English at all even after 6 years education program. In my point of view, most of the English teachers in Japan cannot speak English fluently.
    The reason is simple. We do not practice speaking or we do not practice speaking appropriately. Repeating, Reading aloud, Shadowing, Recitation is not the speaking practice but voice training. And even these voice trainings are not done in Japanese school sufficiently.
