Abstract

Among international languages, English is used in many cases (almost in all cases) in international affairs as the principal means of communication among people throughout the world. So, it is quite natural for English language teachers in any country to have developed a strong desire to help their students learn English properly in their daily lessons. However, it shouldn't be forgotten that teachers in their daily practices, in whatever country, must follow the directions given by their respective ministries of education. This paper critically assesses how English education is organized in Korea and Japan, comparing political backgrounds, teacher training programs, English textbooks, and actual English lessons at school.
