Most only learn English in school, not at ‰p‰ï˜b.
In any case, the main reason why people are poor at English here is that they are not enthusiastic about learning it unlike their Asian cousins in Korea and China. English studies in those countries are intensive and the students actually want to learn, so they do. Japanese for the most part, wish English would just go away. They are always looking for a shortcut to suddenly become good at English. They will never get anywhere with that attitude.
