Abstract

As previous chapters have documented, the position of the native-speaker English teacher within the Japanese context has been forged across many centuries of contact between the Japanese national-self and the non-Japanese national-other. As observable in Chapters 2 and 3, connections can be made between past events and contemporary practices and pedagogies that continue to be problematic in terms of national-self-other positioning, the role of the idealized national-other within foreign language education and the English language proficiency successes of Japanese nationals. This chapter attempts to move away from the past and instead look toward the future through showcasing interview data gathered from teachers involved in the provision of English language education in Japan.
