The First All English Newspaper in Kumamoto City, Japan
My name is Randall Miller. The Point is an all-English newspaper in Kumamoto City, Japan. There are lots of Japanese adults who like to learn and practice English. There are also a lot of Japanese students who enjoy learning English. The Point gives Japanese a chance to practice and learn English with a native speaker. Japanese people can exchange emails in English with our native speaking English staff. Japanese can also learn idioms, American culture and other English grammar with our newspaper. My goal is to help improve Japanese citizens in English and to give them a safe and comfortable opportunity to practice English with native speakers. I print the newspaper once a month. The Point reaches up to 150,000 citizens in Kumamoto City and surrounding areas. The Point newspaper started printing in 1999 and had been continuously printing for the last 20 years. The Point has a lot of English that can not be taught in a classroom by a teacher.
