"Nobel Prize-winner Shuji Nakamura to Japan’s young people: ''Get out of Japan''"
" Last week, the prickly professor gave his first Japanese press conference since picking up his Nobel and he had some very succinct advice for young Japanese: Leave.
Although Nakamura praised the Japanese culture of cooperation, hard work and honesty, he called out the education system for focusing too much on the limited goals of exams and getting into big companies. He pointed out that it is failing to give young people the English skills they need to function on a global level."
“In the world, Japanese people [have] the worst English performance,” --- he said. --- “Only they are concerned about Japanese life. That’s a problem.”"
