Now English is "essential" for our career’s

There’s an article in the Daily Yomiuri On-Line that says that English is essential to our career’s, to our students’ career’s. Even though it reads like an advertisement for the TOEIC test, it further emphasizes how important a solid English background will be to our students when they enter the job market.

I also believe that it sends a message to the government and MEXT that industry is demanding people with solid English backgrounds. I hope that industry becomes more forceful in demanding that the Ministry produce results, not charming platitudes about a nation that can communicate in English.
