English Education in Japan

I read an interesting letter/opinion column today in The Japan Times that you should all read. It explains my job, and the reasons why I am left without much work to do for many weeks during the school year. My school is a high academic school with students who will test for entrance into some of the more important universities in Japan. Check it out:

Also, less important, so if you only read one article, read the one above. But this is another Question and Answer article in The Japan Times that answers questions about the university entrance exams that students here must take. The general test for Japan was this past weekend, so the senior students at my high school spent their day looking at the answers to the test and finding out their scores...then crying or celebrating.
