Yep, English is their second language, like in the US, the second language is Spanish, Canada, French, etc.
Their required to learn English in their schools.
Most of them actually do speak English, well enough to be understood.

I'm sure a good number can understand English. Also if they have a parent who can speak English they'd probably learn from them too.

not all, especially in the far away prefectures or provinces...

but if you go to Oita or in Beppu you can find a lot of English speaking people there because there's a well known school there called Ritsumeikan Asian Pacific University of APU wherein a lot of foreigners all over the globe who studies there to learn different languages.

I believe they could mostly understand it, but maybe not speak it so well...

It's a requirment now, is it not? I know it is in many other Asian countries.

Sure ... ? They seem to be learning the language but , not as advanced like in Philippines .
According to the dramas I watched , they`re a bit slow . It`s not that easy to learn a new
language so I understand their difficulty . Like some Canadians with French .

not of all of them are fluent even if they study it...
