^ some japanese know trivial English words, but they aren't proficient enough to place them in a sentence. This is the general Japanese public, but there are some who speak English fairly well.

My former math teacher actually taught in Japan and he barely knows any Japanese.
Dunno how that works.

^ It was probably an invitational, or something like that. Did he teach there for quite some time?

Yes, we went to take a vacation for two months and live in there. I was really frustrated for being a retard in there. But I love the vacation though.

I was in Japan for 3 months on exchange. Depending on where you are, no all Japanese can speak English. And do carry more cash with you since not all the shop accept credit card too.

In the big city like Tokyo, alot of them can speak English but where I was I need the basic Japanese to communicate with the people except when I am in the institution where most of them would speak basic English.

yes you can
juss go and be a big pimp
named pimpin j's
and when they ask y ur called pimpin j's
you say cause im pimpin japanese girls oh yeah...
n ya set hahaha kiddin

ummmmm i think you should consider learning the language cause my japanese teacher said its really hard to find your way around japan especially if you get directions from people cause they dont have street names or somethin like that
and its pretty much common sense
no espeaky then ur literally screwed
unless you find some smart japanese people who speak english who are willing to help you..kinda rare though
