English in Japan

Today, I heard a funny story from my student. Her boyfriend is American, and she told me that she really had problems with the vocabulary when she started to go out with him. She said that she thought the phrase '' See you later'' means to see again at the same day, so she waited and waited for his call and got angry, there was no contact to her. Also, she received an e-mail calling her ''Babe'', and she thought he is calling her as a pig.( There was a film about a piggy named Babe'')
Most of the Japanese speak very little English, the TOEIC test shows that the average points are the 2nd worst in Asia. Also, I saw a police having probblems today, spoken by a Westerner in English.
You should keep in mind about the English skills of most Japanese.
