When I read the news below, I was shocked.

According to this article, the number of students who don’t like English has been increasing, and when they calculated the English ability as T-score it has been getting worse by 7.4 points.

I believed that having English classes at elementary schools must be one of the very effective ways to acquire English skills.

What do you think is the wrong with it?
