  1. Hello Chia,
    My name is Eikaiwa.
    I currently teach English in Japan.
    My mother is Japanese, and my father is from England.
    I really love your ideas on how to help English learners become more confident by putting the emphasis on what truly matters. And as far as politeness is concerned, I think that native English speakers should also embrace more what you called ” the charity principle” in your talk.
    Thanks for all the advice!
