For those of us who know the Japanese we all know that their fluency in the English language is not one of their strong points. This is not through a lack of trying; the Japanese leave school with a good grasp of grammar and a huge vocabulary. However, due to their antiquated and protective education system this knowledge is never applied and, as a result, the Japanese find themselves unable to communicate with foreigners. On the positive side their loss is our gain as we are able to look deeper into the world of Japanese English!! English is regarded as being 'cool' and is used in advertisements and as arbitrary statements on products which are meant to enhance their attractiveness.
