Studying with a dictionary more popular than classroom lessons, Twitter, mobile phones

Studying with a dictionary more popular than classroom lessons, Twitter, mobile phones goo Research recently published a a survey they performed with President magazine into the English-language ability of professional people and has been translated at the "What Japan Thinks" blog. One result from the survey was that significantly more of the business people surveyed were "studying with a dictionary" than "taking English language, conversation lessons" or "using mobile phones, games machines".

The sample consisted of 1,031 members of the goo Research online monitor group and was limited to those between the ages of 30 and 59 who had not lived overseas but had taken a TOEIC exam.
