続く?日本の英語氷河期 English “ice age”, a hard time for English learners in Japan continues?


The introduction of the private sector English test to the standardized university exam, which was planned to start in 2020, has been decided to be postponed after years of chaos in Japan.
I have personally long thought even a harsh reform is needed in English education in Japan as soon as possible to make it much more practical as in Singapore or in the Philippines because little progress has been made in the past 150 years since the Meiji Restoration in Japan.
So the postponement this time seems to me that it is another start of the second 150 year-long English “ice age” in Japan, when we can expect almost no improvement again.
