Holy crap.

GEOS has filed for bankruptcy.

More.

Three years since NOVA did, and I hear from some students that they're making a decent comeback.

Yet I really do think the bubble of eikaiwa is bursting in Japan.

Latest popular katakana-English phrase which cracks me up:
ノーハウ (noohau) or ノウハウ (nouhau) = know-how

Absolute nonsense. It's in all the self-help type commercials, but of course not knowing the etymology its use is already starting to skew in weird directions....



Also, my senior high girls cracked me up today by asking me which holiday was more fun: Easter or Halloween?

Oh, commercialism.

Situation:
Two garbagemen, one backing up the truck, the other directing him.

Garbageman: "Hai, hai, hai... hai, hai-- OK, stop!"



Oh, Japan. Everyone speaks English, and no-one does.
