NHK English Must Be Good

April 20th, 2005

Whenever I meet a Japanese person who speaks English very well, but they have never lived overseas, it is almost always the case that they have studied English by the NHK courses. I’ve never bought the materials or watched the courses, but I have a very high opinion of them simply from the evidence alone.

Has anyone else here made the same observation, or a different one?

    I’ve found that many Japanese who speak English well studied at missionary-founded schools, also.

    yup yups…in fact NHK has a lot of great Japanese programs that are presented in English and allows them to learn English…i like J-Melo and What’s On Japan.
