International City?

Hi,

Just back from a trip to Tokyo. I found something interesting and annoying!

Without any doubt, Tokyo is an international city. Tourism, international trade happens here and there. But nearly most of her people can't speak English, the so-called "International Language"?!

Why?

Looking back to Hong Kong. In the recent 10, 15 years, we start to teach our children as early as at the age of 3 some so difficult and complex English words and phrases (to be honest, I am not sure whether I understand all they teach), but we are becoming less and less "International"?!

Why?

I don't really know. Might be you can share with us your thoughts!
