  • What is going on?

  • Guys, welcome back to my video.

  • This is a key in today's video.

  • I'm gonna be talking about culture.

  • So in one of my previous videos, I have explained why it is so hard for Japanese people to learn English.

  • And in that video I focused on the linguistic differences between English and Japanese.

  • If you haven't watched it, please check that out.

  • But actually that's not old.

  • There are so many factors is going to be there, and one of them is culture.

  • Today I'm going to introduce two characteristics of Japanese culture that slowed down the English learning off Japanese people.

  • The 1st 1 is shame.

  • Culture.

  • What is a shame?

  • Culture, by the way, according to Oxford Dictionary, Shame culture is a culture in which confirm ity off behavior is maintained through the individuals fear off being shamed what to putting an easy word.

  • People shame, culture tend to avoid thinks that could cause embarrassment, and Japan is often described as shame.

  • Culture.

  • Japanese people are too afraid of making mistakes because that's gonna immersed in my long.

  • This is crucial in language learning because if you want acquire language, you have to use new words and phrases.

  • But when you try something new, mistakes are inevitable.

  • And this is where Japanese English, others get too scared.

  • Most of them tried to stay in a comfortable zone.

  • They don't try using your worst.

  • They only used the same phrases and worse that they have been using for the past few years over and over again, because they feel comfortable with those words.

  • They don't want to make mistakes trying new worse.

  • This is maybe a little bit exaggerated, but you know what I'm trying to say?

  • I also make out of the stakes when I speak English, but I'm not burst up because that's what supposed to happen.

  • I'm not a native English speaker.

  • I'm not perfect.

  • 2nd 1 is high context culture.

  • This overlaps what I mentioned in the previous video.

  • Japan is a very high contact society where people read between the lines and speak, expecting the same from the listeners.

  • This is because Japan has be a homogeneous country for geographical reasons, and people shared the same context on culture so people don't need to enunciate what they mean to say the interpretation is lost.

  • Lee left, the listeners is such a high contact society.

  • The amount of the information that single one has is enormous.

  • As a matter of fact, single word or short sentence responses account for a large portion of conversations in Japan.

  • But in contrast, English speaking countries like America has a low context culture where people try to explain things in an explicit way to make themselves clear.

  • This is because English speaking countries are racially diversified.

  • People don't share the same context on culture.

  • So to describe things Cleary as possible length off one sentence tends to be longer than that of high, complex language.

  • This cultural difference is making it so difficult for Japanese people to speak English because they're not used to speak that way.

  • They're not accustomed to making long sentences.

  • And if you observe Japanese English speakers, you will notice that their English sentences tend to be pretty short.

  • So, he said, to characteristics of Germany's culture that makes it difficult for Japanese people to learn and speak English.

  • How did you guys like it?

  • So thank you so much for watching this video.
