TOKYO POLICE CONFIRM 2018 DEATH OF NORTH KOREA ABDUCTION SUSPECT - JAPAN

TOKYO POLICE CONFIRM 2018 DEATH OF NORTH KOREA ABDUCTION SUSPECT - JAPAN


@Jackie San

Tokyo police said Tuesday they have confirmed that a suspect in North Korea's 1980 abduction of Japanese national Tadaaki Hara died in 2018, the first death among 11 alleged abductors of Japanese citizens put on an international wanted list.


The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's Public Security Bureau said they have confirmed Kim Kil Uk, a former principal of a North Korean school in Japan, died on March 13, 2018, in South Korea at age 90. They did not disclose the cause of his death.


Japan issued international arrest warrants for 11 people, including Kim, through the International Criminal Police Organization, or Interpol, for their alleged involvement in Pyongyang's kidnappings of Japanese citizens in the 1970s and 1980s.


The bureau had been verifying information on the death of Kim officially provided by South Korean police via Interpol in November last year.


With the confirmation, the police said they have returned the arrest warrant for Kim issued in April 2006 to court and had his name removed from Interpol's wanted list.


Kim and former North Korean agent Shin Kwang Soo are suspected of luring Hara, then 43, from Osaka to Miyazaki Prefecture and abducting him to North Korea in June 1980.


Shin is believed to have later illegally acquired a passport purporting to be Hara and entered Japan numerous times for espionage purposes. He is believed to be aged 94 and in North Korea, although details on his whereabouts remain unknown.


Japan officially lists 17 nationals as having been abducted by North Korea in the 1970s and 1980s but suspects Pyongyang's involvement in many other disappearances.

HOW IMPORTANT IS ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN JAPAN?

HOW IMPORTANT IS ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN JAPAN?


@Jackie San



In Japan, English is being learned to further develop society. Students in Japan have historically been required to learn English form the seventh grade. However, recently there has been introduction of teaching English to Japanese children in the early elementary grades.


1- HOW DO YOU THINK ENGLISH AS A GLOBAL LANGUAGE IN JAPAN?

English has gained significant importance as a global language in Japan, particularly in recent years. The Japanese government has been emphasizing the importance of English education to enhance international communication, foster global competitiveness, and attract foreign investment. As a result, English is now a compulsory subject in Japanese schools from elementary level onwards.


Additionally, the prevalence of English in various aspects of daily life, such as in business, technology, tourism, and entertainment, has further solidified its status as a global language in Japan. Many Japanese people recognize the necessity of English proficiency for career advancement and personal growth, leading to a growing number of English learners and speakers in the country.


However, it's important to note that while English proficiency is increasing in Japan, there are still challenges and variations in proficiency levels across different demographics and regions. Nevertheless, the trend towards embracing English as a global language is unmistakable in Japan.



2- HOW THE ABILITY TO SPEAK ENGLISH IN THE JAPANESE POPULATION?

In Japan, the ability to speak English varies among the population. While English is taught in schools and is widely recognized as an important skill for international communication and career advancement, the proficiency levels can vary significantly among individuals.


Many Japanese people study English from a young age, starting in elementary school, and continue to learn it throughout their education. However, the emphasis on written English in traditional education systems sometimes results in limited speaking and listening skills.


There is also a cultural factor at play. Japanese culture traditionally places importance on humility and avoiding mistakes, which can sometimes lead to a reluctance to practice speaking English, especially in public settings where making errors might be perceived as embarrassing.


That said, there is a growing trend of English proficiency in Japan, particularly among younger generations who are more exposed to English through media, the internet, and international travel. Additionally, initiatives like English-language immersion programs, language exchanges, and the increased presence of English-speaking foreigners in Japan contribute to improving English proficiency levels across the country.


Overall, while many Japanese people can speak some level of English, there is still a wide range of proficiency levels, and improvement efforts continue to be made at both the individual and societal levels.


3- NOW A DAYS SCHOOL IN JAPAN PRACTICE ENGLISH LANGUAGE YOU THINK?


Yes, English language education is an integral part of the curriculum in Japanese schools nowadays. The Japanese government has implemented various reforms over the years to strengthen English language education starting from elementary school. Here's an overview:


  1. Compulsory English Education: English is a compulsory subject in Japanese elementary schools, starting from the fifth grade (around age 10). This was a significant change implemented in 2011 as part of educational reforms aimed at improving English proficiency from a younger age.


  2. Increased Focus on Communication Skills: There has been a shift in English language education in Japan towards a more communicative approach, emphasizing speaking and listening skills alongside reading and writing. This is intended to better prepare students for real-life communication in English.


  3. English Activities and Programs: Many schools in Japan offer extracurricular English activities and programs to supplement formal classroom education. These may include English clubs, conversation practice sessions, English camps, and exchange programs with schools in English-speaking countries.


  4. Qualified English Teachers: Efforts have been made to improve the quality of English instruction by increasing the number of qualified English teachers and providing professional development opportunities for existing teachers.


  5. Integration of Technology: Technology is increasingly being integrated into English language education in Japanese schools, with the use of digital resources, educational apps, and online language learning platforms to enhance learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.


Overall, English language education in Japan has undergone significant changes in recent years to better equip students with the skills needed for global communication and participation in the international community. However, there are still ongoing discussions and efforts to further improve English education in Japan to meet the demands of the globalized world.

TSUNAMI REACH SOUTHWESTERN JAPANESE ISLANDS AFTER M7.5 QUAKE HITS OFF TAIWAN

TSUNAMI REACH SOUTHWESTERN JAPANESE ISLANDS AFTER M7.5 QUAKE HITS OFF TAIWAN

@Jackie San

A powerful earthquake struck off Taiwan at 8:58 a.m. local time on Wednesday, rocking the entire island and collapsing buildings. Japan issued a tsunami alert for the southern Japanese island group of Okinawa.


The Japan Meteorological Agency forecast a tsunami of up to 3 meters. A wave of 30 centimeters was detected on the coast of Yonaguni island about 15 minutes after the quake struck. The agency said waves aer likely to hit the coasts of Miyako and Yaeyama islands.


Taiwan’s earthquake monitoring agency gave the magnitude as 7.2 while the U.S. Geological Survey put it at 7.5. It struck about 18 kilometers south-southwest of Hualien and was about 35 kilometers deep.


In Taiwan, a five-story building in lightly populated Hualien appeared heavily damaged, collapsing its first floor and leaving the rest leaning at a 45-degree angle. In the capital, Taipei, tiles fell from older buildings and within some newer office complexes.


Train service was suspended across the island of 23 million people, as was subway service in Taipei. But things quickly returned to normal in the capital, with children going to school and the morning commute appearing to be normal.


The head of Taiwan's earthquake monitoring bureau, Wu Chien-fu, said effects were detected as far away as Kinmen, a Taiwanese-controlled island off the coast of China. Multiple aftershocks were felt in Taipei in the hour after the initial quake.
