Japan is seen as a model country in many aspects and one of them is education. This is seen and treated with respect and as a priority. Meanwhile, Brazil is still struggling to do a better work in its education, but many social problems are obstacles to that. One subject that is very different between those countries is how the students deal with their school environment. The idea of comparing education aspects of Japan and Brazil was part of the Teacher Training Program, offered by the Japanese Ministry of Education (MEXT), with the purpose of finding what is applied inside Japanese schools that can be helpful and applicable to Brazilian schools. The answer to that is hansei, a simple and costless method of talking that may contribute to benefits in Brazilian education.
