A： Why are there so many private English schools in Japan?
It is mainly because public schools don’t provide adequate English education to the students.（英会話に限定すべきだった）Therefore, many students go to private English schools. In my case, when I was a junior high and high school student, I also went to English conversation school. （それ以上出て来なかった）

A： Which do you support, non-smoker or smoker?

A： Why is the amount of allowance given to Japanese husbands by their wives so low?
In my opinion, it is because of the traditional role of husbands and wives in Japan. In Japan, wives have been traditionally in charge of family budget.

Therefore, wives are in charge of most of the family money and give small amount of allowance to their husbands.
A： Thank you very much.
