You should touch the world

Hi. I am the author of "Interviewed 20 Greeks". There are lots views about Greeks on the Japanese web, but most Japanese people haven't had a discussion with Greeks on the recent crisis. We have to imagine other's emotions in order to understand them correctly. When we discuss the world, we have to be actors or novelists. Of course, it is not always true that understanding is accepting. Even if we don't feel sympathy for somebody, we need to correctly know his emotion in order to know his view or logic.

As you can see, it is difficult to say that my English is sophisticated. However, I can communicate with non-Japanese speakers by this. I can do. Of course, you must be able to do. Why don't you have any attempt to communicate with foreign people? Although you have ways to listen to, why do you ignore players' voices? Tell me the reason why you think that you can say something about Greece without talking with Greeks.

Honestly speaking, I don't want to show you my English skill, because Japanese people often criticize other Japanese people's linguistic skills. The reason why I did that is because I want you to know that it is possible to know the world more deeply by your English. Unfortunately, many Japanese people are virtually blind on the world. Our views are often "galapagostic".
