TV coverage of KTK online English learning
In Japan, many students become English-phobic at junior and/or senior high schools.
On the other hand, the practical English has been becoming more and more important and needed all aver the world.
The English education history in Japan also shows that it is not easy for Japanese to get the balanced English skills. Even many Japanese English teachers at schools do not have not enough English ability to teach as reported in the newspaper below.
The Education Ministry in Japan requests Japanese teachers of English in junior and senior high schools to keep at least 730 TOEIC scores. But only 28% in junior and 53% in senior high school teachers have reached this level as of November, 2014.
What should we do?
I have developed my own English learning method by self-learning for more than 50 years in the past and I am sure that it should be very suitable for Japanese student to get the balanced English skills (listening, reading, writing and speaking).
So I have already produced the online English learning materials for the Japanese students, where I apply my own practical method in learning English to them.

STEP: Society for Testing English Proficiency
The following web news in Japanese says that about 90% of senior high school students in Japan have not reached the English proficiency level of 2nd or pre-2nd grade in writing and speaking skills. (as of March 17, 2015)
The following newspaper article says that the Education Ministry in Japan requests Japanese teachers of English in junior and senior high schools to keep at least 730 TOEIC scores, but it is revealed that only 28% in junior and 53% in senior high school teachers have reached this level of 730 in TOEIC scores as of November, 2014.
This certificate of appreciation has been granted to me in June 2012 for my 25 year-long service as an oral test examiner of EIKEN.
On November 9th, I interviewed in English 49 examinees at an examination site for the second-stage English proficiency test by Eiken.
(I retired as an examiner at the age of 65,, but sometimes I am asked to do the same when they need help.)
The following article says that the external English examinations for university entrance examinations will be introduced.
reported in the attached newspaper article, I hope that the external English examinations will replace the conventional university entrance examinations as soon as possible.
It is quite natural and good that the backward English education system that has not met the social need in Japan for such a long time is retooled.
Those who are against this possible change are the teachers who can’t catch up with this change, the teachers who have been teaching English only with one English reading book readable in a day and one English grammar book usable in their whole life as well as the English related stubborn scholars only with their own theories.
