    p.s.: japanese people are not very good with foreign languages


    Spoken like a true Japanese. Never mind the examples we already have of English-speaking Japanese on this forum, or the fact that I work with two teachers here who speak fantastic English, or the fact that there are actually innumerable Japanese living in foreign countries speaking their languages...

    I'm sorry. I made an assumption, based on one of the previous posts, and my personal experience. No need to feel offended.

    I don't feel offended. I'm not Japanese.


    It's just usually a good habit to avoid sweeping generalizations- there are some 125 million Japanese out there, odds are if you say "Japanese people __________" you're going to be speaking in error, at least to a certain degree. Granted, there seem to be fewer individual differences between most Japanese on the surface, but that doesn't mean that individual differences don't exist.
