Russell's Ken-Bun-Ki June 6, 1996 Listening Power (2)
Japanese study English for, at minimum, three years in Junior High School. Most study in Junior High and in High School, for a total of six years. I think most people know the basic grammar and some vocabulary. Therefore, using those six years as a base, those people who have an interest in English should be able to improve easily. Let me explain the best three methods to improve.
1. Live in a foreign country
If you are in an environment surrounded by English you will definitely improve. This is the method I am using to improve my Japanese (and Miyazaki dialect), day by day. However, as a practical choice this is the most difficult method.
2. Talk constantly with visiting foreigners
3. Listen to as many foreign songs and watch as many foreign movies and videos as you can
