View topic - Hello!
There is a school of thought (especially in Japan, or so I'm told?) that the less Japanese you know, the better (for teaching English). I don't agree with this school of thought, though: the more you know of both languages, the easier it can be for you to see problem areas that Japanese students may study with, that you might not even realize are difficult for Japanese learners of the English language (indefinite versus definite articles ("a" vs "the") being an obvious example).
