I think Japanese have more patience for children.If my two-year-old got a tantrum in the supermarket because I said no to anything, and then i was screaming on the floor for 15 min, the Japanese just ignored it. Or I got a verbal pat on the shoulder in the form of “Taihen desu ne!” ((Parents) have a hard time!) In Germany, I had seen people throw nasty glances or demand that parents turn off the noise as quickly as possible.
In Japan, there is no concept for raven parents.Whoever wants to become a housewife and leaves the children at home, should do just that. Whoever gives children in day care centers, may they do so. It is strongly recommended to give children at least in the year before school entry into the half-day kindergarten. And I support that. I had to teach a girl for a year who couldn’t follow any instructions. If she had come to school like this, then condolences for the class teacher!
The food is better and healthier, at least if you cook traditionally or modern-traditionally.However, I believe that it is easier to eat foreign food in Germany. I also find the way pork is cooked sweet and sour in Germany around worlds better than the Japanese one. And there are no duck meat dishes, apart from Okinawa.
I miss German bread and rolls.Japanese seem to have learned this from the British or the Dutch. Sigh! Furthermore, housing in Japan is impossible, given that Japan is an industrialized country. Little to no insulation, simply glazed windows without thermal insulation in the frame are the norm, built-in slits under the windows, because yes (OT) oxygen has to come in. This is because the only source of heat in winter is kerosene oven, which often stand on straw mats. Winter here could be so beautiful with its blue sky, if you don’t have to survive for months in often single-fry temperatures. Cold, cold, cold! It is quickly so cold that you can use the unheated part of the apartment, which makes up most of the apartment, as a refrigerator or even freezer. A friend told me last year that her printer ink was frozen because she had him standing in the hallway.
In addition, there is summer a la Turkish sauna.From me you could take a pair of scissors and cut the time from June to mid-September out of the year. Yes, there are air conditioners in most rooms. But they are inefficient and huge power-eaters. And due to lack of insulation, it is not very effective. And you can watch the temperature rise. And did I mention the sun? We are here at the height of North Africa, and accordingly strong it is. I had a sunburn on my head this year, despite the normal volume of hair. That was the rash of never leaving the house again without a stretched umbrella.
Furthermore, I am annoyed at how impossible it is here to take only one day off.I could listen to a 10-minute sermon because I had the naughtiness of wanting to watch out for my children on the typhoon-free school day. In general, you only get 10 days off a year. And I just wanted to take one of them. Unthinkable in Germany!
I am annoyed how you have to memorize everything in Japanese schools.No matter in which subject. There is no thought or essay on writing anything. Maths in Europe I loved to analyze a problem and describe it with a predictable formula. Here you can only memorize a lot of formulas and solutions. And a lot of it only because you are not allowed to use a calculator until the Abi. I would have hated math if I had to learn that in Japan. I am not a friend of memorization.
I am also upset about what is being done here with languages.German is completely reduced to grammar. The poor students are allowed in 24 hours all grammar up to the “comic conjunctives 2” as I fly, I teach you a bread. Even Danes do this at most in the German performance course in the 6th year, if at all.
And English is taught like Latin, and many learn obscure grammar and Shakespeare English, but can’t even read a book or do small talk.And often with 6-10 hours of English per week. Language teaching was better in GDR times.
