Michelle Turner (Chapter 13) has acted as one of the interlocutors for our research project since it started (see Chapter 7). Her observations on the linguistic behaviour of the Japanese pre-school children include a fairly late development of verbs (see also Chapter 7) and the existence of a quiet, whispering stage experienced by most children. In this connection, it should be mentioned that all of these children were seen to talk volubly and out loud in Japanese in their home environment, reminding us of the point made by Pickering in Chapter 12 that 'a Japanese pupil, like any other person, will be different in different settings'.

Chapter 1). As a former teacher at junior and senior high schools in Japan, Mariko Sasagawa-Garmory compares the educational environment of the two cultures.
