Just for the record the large majority of Japanese students study English lessons for approximately 6 years, during there school life.

This has been the case for a long time now, so nearly every Japanese person under the age of 30 has studied quite a bit of English. However there often nervous to use it.

So?

The fact that a very small percentage (not a large majority like you stated) of people spend that much time on learning it, goes to show little respect or need to master English after their own native one. This is comparatively at a very low rate compared to many other Asian countries.

Why do you think many people ridicule their use of English? (e.g. www.engrish.com) It's because they don't spend much time acquiring the international language as they believe that theirs is far superior.
