Fruitful English? Or a Dying Language?

This Fruitful English website tells you all you need to know about teaching English in Japan. (I found it by way of an ad at the top of my Gmail inbox.) It looks like an online 自動販売機 jidouhanbaiki '(automatic) vending machine', with instructions entirely in Japanese. Selling One-Cup English. English classes in Japan explain the language; they don't teach it. As if it were Hittite. Well, at least that won't be a problem after the demise of English on March 31, 2058 (according to Language Hat).
