English and I 0179

2010 年 6 月 22 日 火曜日

I like English very much. But when I begun to study

 

English, I cannot understand English and I dislike it. I thought

 

that Japanese need not study English. But when I was in high

 

school, I understood that English is a very important way to

 

correspond to global world. Since then I have begun to wrestle

 

with English seriously, And I have begun to understand English

 

little by little. At last I started to studying English. And I came to

 

be a good at English. This experience helped me on examinations.

 

And I learn German in university today. German is very difficult

 

for me. But what I have studied English is useful when I study

 

German. I think that English is useful for future. Because global

 

world mean that an opportunity that uses English increases.

 

So I shall continue studying English from now on.

 

Listening to Music 9086

2010 年 6 月 22 日 火曜日

      Why do I study English? I have one simple reason. “ I want to understand The Beatles ‘songs more easily“. The Beatles is one of the most famous band in the world. They were playing from 1950 to 1970. Their music have preoccupied many people for a long times. My father is crazy for them even now.

   When I was a junior high school student, I sang their song in my music class. That song’s is “ Hey Jude”. The song was made by Paul to cheer John’s son. His name is Jude. At that time I couldn’t understand the meaning of words. But I liked the melody.

     When I became a high school student, I heard “ Let It Be” and “ Imagine”. I thought that I would to understand the song’s meanings. For the first time I checked the song’s words in a dictionary. “ Let It Be “ makes me feel relief, and “Imagine” makes me think about the world, wars, peace and humanity.

      Their songs are simpler than other people’s songs. Their songs reach our hearts easily. So their songs can be preoccupying many people’s hearts even now.

 In my college, I want to study listening English so that I can understand the songs of Beatles with my ears. At the end, I want to be a good singer of the Beatles.

0161 English for Me

2010 年 6 月 15 日 火曜日

     I thought that English was one of the subjects for entrance examinations three years ago. But when I entered high school, I changed my idea. I realized English is a global language. But I didn’t like English then. One day my high school teacher of English said to me, “Your accent is very strange.” I was shocked at his words. I thought that it was difficult for me to study English. But my high school ALT encouraged me to keep studying English. I decided to study English very hard. At first I wasn’t interested in English, but gradually I came to enjoy learning English. The more I studied English, the better my English examination scores and my accents became. Then I was very happy and I appreciate my high school teachers. And I started thinking that I want to go to the United States of America or the United Kingdom, because I wanted to learn authentic English. In order to learn authentic English, first, I should take as many chances to talk to the people there as possible. Second, I should learn there cultures and study there histories because it would become easier to understand them better if I knew there background. I studied English very hard in high school and I came to like English when I graduated from high school. I hope that more people would like English in Japan.                                                                

     Now that I entered Kwasnsei Gakuin University, I would like to study English harder than before. And I will learn English so that I can use the language to see the world.

              I like English because I can talk with most foreigners if I can speak English. And speaking English is very cool.

              Today English has become the international language, so in many countries if you master English you can communicate with a lot of people in the world. For example, when you travel abroad, you feel good if you can speak English. However you don’t feel good if you can’t. And there are problem in foreign countries. You are a stranger in area where you visit, so you will feel inconvenient in geographical problem when you lost your ways.

              English is advantageous in many jobs. Today it is essential to use English. In job hunting there is difference absolutely between persons who can speak English and more and more lawyers in Japan, which will lead to their client decrease. So I want to work in judiciary country, USA. There are a lot of clients who need lawyers in USA. Therefore I will acquire English.

              To study English is very hard. However, studying words which we don’t know is very fun because I can widen my worldview. So I study English hard for future.

 

0180 English and I

2010 年 6 月 15 日 火曜日

When I was in junior high school, I disliked English. Since I did not study English hard, I god bad grades. I thought that I could not improve my English grades. But I was wrong. When I was in high school, I began to study English. I wrote English ward, read English texts and listened to English dialogs. I continued to study English for a half year. My English grade was improving. Finally, English became one of my best subjects. Once I studied English, I began to think that English is interesting. I learned it is not good to assume, “I cannot do it.” My English grade in reading and writing had improved little by little, but I am still very weak in speaking and listening to English. In university, I am going to continue to study English writing and reading, especially I wish that my ability of listening and speaking will improve.

English and Myself 0167

2010 年 6 月 15 日 火曜日

Japanese education is very strange. English skill that I learn in Japan is useless because Japanese English education focuses on English grammar not speaking English. So I have studied English for six years (junior high school and high school) but I cannot speak English well. Moreover, it is not easy for me to talk to foreign people. When I say to foreign person “hello,” I hope that he or she replies to me “hello” or “hi.” If he or she replies a different word from what I hoped, I can’t listen to this word and I will be troubled next word.

Japanese English education should be improved. Japanese English education should introduce English speaking skill much more. And, university examination should be improved also. There are a lot of word that foreign people don’t speak usually in it. For example, English word “determine” is hardly used in conversation, but university examination has a lot of this word. language is tool to speak foreign people. Reading foreign book is second purpose, not main purpose.

Japanese education center (monbusyo) must improve their policy. If they changed their policy, children who are good at English and like English would increase. And I want everyone who has learned English to get native speaking skill.

2010 年 6 月 15 日 火曜日

When I was an elementary student I learned English for

 

the first time. I had already thought that it was difficult then.

 

           When I became a junior high school student, a full scale

 

English class began. I followed the class barely, but I was

 

gradually used to learning English. Then, English became

 

one of my most favorite subjects.

 

           English was still my strong subject after I entered high

 

school, but all the classes were very difficult. I could not spend

 

enough time for studying English. As a result, my English

 

grades fell many times. However, I studied important phrase

 

structures and grammar very hard. In such a way, my English

 

grades became better.

 

           On the center examination, the score on English was my

 

important one. Though I could not get good scores as a whole on

 

the examination, English score was as high as I had hoped.

 

           In such a way, I had studied English only for the

 

examination, but I don’t know whether I will get a job that

 

utilizes English in the future. Perhaps, I will choose a job which

 

does not use English at all. However, I can’t tell when I will use it

 

unexpectedly. For the time being, I want to learn English now.

0185 An Importance of English

2010 年 6 月 15 日 火曜日

     Is studying English important for us? I think  English is important for three reasons. First, today, English is spoken all over the world. When we go abroad, if we have the skill of speaking English, we can communicate with the foreign local people. Today, Japan is becoming globalized, so Japanese need have the skill of speaking English.

     Second, recently Japanese company is also becoming globalized. So various country people will work, in Japanese company in the near future. When Ibegin to work, if the future comes, I must work with foreign people. and I must communicate  with foreign people. So it is important for me to study English.

     Third, studying English gives us many choices of job. I have not found the job that I want to do. So I  study English to get many choices of job and I want to use the English skill in society. 

     Today, it is necessary for Japanese to get skill of English. The skill of speaking English gives us advantages in many places. I want to get the skil that I can use it in society. So I think that studying English is very important.

The Reason Why I Study English

0177

 

I went to Hutt City in New Zealand when I was a junior high school student. Hutt City and my home town, Mino, Japan, are international sister cities. They send students to each other every summer. . I went to New Zealand as exchange student.

I stayed with host family for two weeks. At first, I felt much difficulty in  communicate with native speakers, my host family. However, I looked up a dictionary to find a definition of vocabularies which I did not know. Even more, in order to express my feeling, I used gesture to communicate with the native. Thus, I could self-evaluate myself that I had done a great job in New Zealand even I had a difficult for language issues. 

When the two weeks had been past, I was able to have a conversation with native speakers. I strongly believe that my host family understood what I would like to say. My host family and I enjoyed conversation, shopping sports, and games. I will never forget joyful days which I spent with my host family. Therefore, I would like to study English and in order to re-unite with my friends from New Zealand.

          I like English. Especially, I feel happy to know the culture of the English-speaking world. However, I don’t want to study English very much, because I want to study other languages recently. I am interested in Germany now.

          I have studied English since the junior high school. In a word, I have studied English for six years. However, I don’t know the culture of the English-speaking world though I studied for six years. Therefore, I want to learn the culture of the English-speaking world at the university.

          I think English is very necessary now in the current international world. Therefore, TOEIC is a make one stand out a prospective employer.  English will be needed more and more in the future. So I want to learn positively at both German and English at the universities.
