Chapter Summary

The author had been teaching Japanese at a private girls' high school for nearly twenty years. Japanese language syllabus not only aims at teaching the Japanese language but also plays an important part in developing 'a Japanese mind'. The textbooks never failed to include questions about the characters' minds. Twenty years ago, the students had little difficulty with comprehension, but those in the present class could not read and understand deep psychological analysis. Students meditate on the happiness derived from sharing the tradition of the classics. A lot of people are of the opinion that more time in the Japanese classroom should be spent promoting discussion and writing essays that would be useful in the context of everyday life. The author states that he likes to bring up students who are able to share the same feelings and points of view articulated in the past as well as the present.
