RUMAO yes they do but below half of them pass, there was an article (which I take with a grain of salt from soranews24) where over half Jp students in nationwide test score zero percent in English speaking section, and since they don't use it they forget most of it in 1 year and everything in 3 except for VERY FEW word like hello, how are you.
The thing Japanese students usually "excel" at is listening with a avg. score of 58.9, For English listening, the average score was 51.7 percent and for English writing 24.1 percent. Then, way down at the bottom of the four English language skills came speaking, for which the average score was just 12.4 percent. Even more startling: 63.1 percent of the test takers got a zero for the English speaking section, failing to satisfactorily answer any of the five questions it contained. 63.1 percent of the test takers got a zero for the English speaking section because they didn't answered 5 questions satisfactorily, BUT i'd say its a bit unfair or bs because one of the questions involved listening to a recording of a English speaker talk about differences in disposable plastic bag usage between shoppers in New Zealand and Japan AND than they were fiven 1 MIN to organized their thoughts on the topic and 30 seconds to answer, KEK like who tf is talking about plastic bags of different countries hahahaha, but yea they're not very concerned by it.
