English is the international language now.

In the old days, perhaps a hundred, or so, years ago, it was French.  Since the end of World War 2, Japan has concentrated great efforts to learn English in the schools, and privately, of course.

Without English, Japan could not survive as the third greatest economy in the world.  As an island nation, international trade is vital for Japan, which is dependent on importing raw materials from foreign countries, manufacturing goods, and then exporting them to various countries around the world.

For the Japanese businessman, English is the key to economic success.  They often go overseas to do business.                              (V.C)
