In light of official Japanese high school text books teaching students to use Japanese name order in English, the ELTNEWS.com Facebook page is running a poll with the question: "Should Japanese learners of English give their names using English name order ("Akiko Yamada") or Japanese name order ("Yamada Akiko") when speaking English?
Teachers have been voting and commenting. As of this writing, most teachers believe that, when speaking in English, Japanese should use English name order. Let us know what you think by visiting our Facebook page.
