Why do Japanese students often switch off during explanations of games or grammar in English?

In Japan modelling is always used after/instead an explanation, so the explanation is not so important. In some schools, explanations in English are also followed by the same explanation in Japanese, so it usually is unnecessary to listen to the English version. There is also generally more tolerance for students not paying attention to the teacher in Japanese schools than in most Western ones.
