Why Korean and Japanese people can’t speak English, in their own words【Video】

Native English teachers who have worked in Korea or Japan have developed very strong opinions about the systematic approach each country takes when teaching English. Here at RocketNews24, we’ve previously talked about how all the focus is on test scores and how native English speakers are used as glorified tape-recorders. We’ve also mentioned that there are Japanese English teachers with limited ability to speak (let alone teach) the subject, textbooks that bore the students into a coma and students who are too afraid to try because they don’t want to make any mistakes.

But it also caused many to wonder, “Does that really happen?” and more to the point, “Would that actually work without getting head-butted or jabbed in the ribs?

It’s a staple in Japanese entertainment, so kabe-don must have worked out for someone out there, but would this sort of thing work on foreign women? Well, wonder no more, as the following video sets out to find out just that.
