Good example of English use - The Japan Times

Ozaru's insight:

I've noticed that more Japanese bureaucrats nowadays speak passable English - but still need professional interpreters to ensure that they communicate accurately. I can see the value in speaking another language during multilingual meetings in order to facilitate communication, or to practise and improve (with native speakers on hand to offer suggestions), but surely switching internal ministry meetings to a foreign tongue will simply result in huge headaches and inefficiencies, if not worse.

Ozaru's insight:
