(Japan Today) To brush up their English skills and get experiences useful for building up a career, more and more Japanese are looking to study in the Philippines, which is much cheaper for studying than the United States or Britain.

Not only individuals but many Japanese corporations are encouraging their employees to study in the Philippines, where English is one of the official languages.


Since five years ago, a manufacturer of automotive parts in Gunma Prefecture has sent 10 to 15 of its employees to the Philippines every year to join a three-month language study program.


Mitsuba Corp. has expanded its production bases to overseas and English is now one of the skills that the firm’s workers need to acquire.

The Philippines is one big sewer. I was sent there once for work and will refuse to ever go again.
The shopping malls had men dressed in causual/police carrying sawed off shotguns. No kidding.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
