Human name : It’s difficult for me to remember and pronounce Western people’s name.
names of food : Almost Every name is different in Japan.
e.g.1 “vanilla” is “banira” in Japanese. The words resemble each other, but the pronunciation is totally different.
e.g.2 When I am living in Japan, I sometimes visit Subway and Starbucks Coffee. The names of the items on these shop’s are different from Japan’s! So I have to lean them again.
These kinds of words are not taught in English classes in Japan. TOEFL and TOEIC classes do not teach them either.
I found that the English which is taught in Japan’s educational system is not sufficient for the conditions of living in the US, but just part of the necessary conditions.
