TEFL Courses Japan
While it is easy for the uninitiated to judge Japan as a high tech, fast paced, land of structured life styles, this is far from the reality.
Efficiency and attention to detail do sit high on the Japanese cultural make up, but it is important to know that the Japanese are a friendly, fun loving people that are open to foreign cultures and eager to learn and experience languages and cultures other than their own.
Consider that Japan was a virtual closed society until 1945, after which Japan opened its doors to outside thoughts, ideas, and cultures.
The nature of the Japanese can therefore be seen as traditional, certainly, but also encompassing new ideas, thoughts, opinions and methods.
As a result of Japan's history, its people have traditional values and norms, while welcoming and embracing foreign cultures.
