3026-English and Myself

2013 年 5 月 28 日 火曜日

I like United State of America, especially Hawaii.  American people have many interesting cultures, so I like English  but I’m not good at English yet.  I feel awkward that I have studied English hard for twelve years at school, but I can’t write long sentences still now.  I’m weak in speaking with foreigners because of my character being too shy.  Sometimes I visit Hawaii with my family.  I can go shopping and use English.  I had a chance to speak with local girls of my age.  I tried speaking with them but I was struck for words in English soon.  Therefore I had no other choice but give up to continue to conversation.  Why can’t I talk to foreigners and I felt that English is my inferiority?  I thought myself about this question.  I found two reasons.  One is my way of studying grammar.  When I was a junior high school and high school student, I always remembered grammar rules.  I only learned grammar by heart.  The other is my strong consciousness that I’m poor at English.  I can’t speak English well.  I want to brush up my English at university.  I hope to speak English fluently.  English is used by people worldwide, so English is the most important language in the world.  A few companies like UNIQLO use English at meetings in Japan.  Japanese people will need to speak English soon, so  I thought that I should change my attitudes.  Therefore I try to listen, watch the mass media like TV, newspapers in English and I want to use English every day.

I did not like English so much in junior high school.  It is because I learned a foreign language for the first time in my life and it was difficult for me to understand the differences of grammar between English and Japanese.  But, I studied English eagerly.  Then, a method of teaching of teachers was good for me when I was a high school student.  So I could be good at English when I studied for an examination for university.

Now I want to learn not only the grammar but also the communication skills as the next step.  And, I want to go abroad while I stay this university and do international work in the future.

When I was an elementary school student, I learned English for the first time. The teacher of the class taught it to us by communicating with us, so classes were very lively. But it was difficult for me to understand what he said, but I was excited to learn.

After a few years, I enrolled in the school, and started learning the grammar of English. I felt it was meaningless, and classes were so boring. Although English was a very important subject for students, I disliked studying it and had a poor knowledge of it.

When I entered a high school, I still disliked English. But, I had to study it, because I wanted to pass the entrance exams for colleges.

Now, I entered KG university, I want to have job that requires English. But, I don’t still like English. But, through studying for a university admission exam, my English grade improved and I got much knowledge of it, so I can read and understand many sentences in English. Now I slightly like English!

According to newspapers and public opinions, we need to learn more English skills in such a globalized world today. Now a quarter of world population use English. If I mastered English, I could make myself understood and make many friends from various countries. I am very eager to acquire English.

              I am not good at all at English, but I like it since I have begun to learn it.  And I want to be able to speak more fluently.  It is because I want to get an international job and go to abroad on business.  And I think that there are more opportunities to speak English in the future than now.  

              So, at the university, I am planning to broaden my English knowledge than in high school and develop my communication skills.  In addition, I want to involve in English habitually and go abroad to study.  In this way I want to learn English voluntarily.  And I should like to use my campus life to some purpose.

“Do you like English?” I will answer “Yes”.    But I can not answer why I want to study English now and what is my final goal.  It is because I only did homework to study English as a subject.

But I learned the most important things at college.   It is not the real meaning of learning English to get good scores.   I was  surprised  to hear this word in English at college.   It is because I thought like this for a long time.   I thought that grades are the most important for us.    So I studied only homework to study English.

But I realized real meaning of learning English by this homework about “English and Myself”.

I think that it is necessary for me enjoy studing English and I want to know about foreign music and food, culture and so on.   And I want to interested in English.

           I am poor English.  But I am having an interest in English.  The reason is music.  I enjoy listening to such music as “Instrumental” “progressive rock” and “melodic speed metal.”

           Do you know “DREAM THEATER” and “Dragon force?”  They are famous bands in America and United Kingdom, besides I hear band very well.

           I can enjoy the music.  But I don’t understand, because the lyrics of their music are in English.  I don’t think that I know their bands.  I want to study English, so that I want to go to their live concerts.

              I don’t like English at first.  I had not enjoyed my English classes and I’ve never got good scores.  There was no reason that I have to try to learn English voluntarily.  I was sleeping all the time in English classes.  English was a pain for me.  I came to avoid English little by little in my life.  And I graduated from high school, avoiding studying English.  I used to try to get away as much as possible from English in high school. 

             However, my perspective changed after talking with exchange students from overseas in the spring break.  The exchange students stayed at my friend’s house.  They had a conversation in English with my friends, but I could not talk at all.  For the first time ever, I realized that I ran away from English at that time.  And I strongly thought that I wanted to learn English.  I must not run away from English any more.  I will try to learn English and not to run away from English at university.  And someday, I want to communicate with many people in English.  I want to go abroad.  This is my dream.

I used not to like English when I was in junior high school.  But, my favorite Japanese band sang the songs in English, so I wanted to study English and to understand the meanings of the lyrics.  Then, I started to study English after I entered a high school.  And I began to like English a little.

           I started to be interested in reading English books. I have come to wish to go abroad and study English literature someday.  I will try to go abroad in my college days and meet people who are from different culture.  I think that it is fun for me to communicate with such people because there are many possibilities that I can find new things.

I started studying English when I entered a  junior high school. I had to memorize many words and complex grammer rules at English classes. And, Iwas so shy that I could not express myself in my presentations. Moreover, I have to trouble in translating English into Japanese.

That is why I was very depressed, as a result, I do not like English.

But I will have to  take English more seriously. That is why It is necessary for people, especially ESL learners to study English. That is because, if we do not study English, we would not understand global affairs very well.

To simply put, English is a key to make  the world more peaceful and brimful of happiness.We have the misssion tha makes the world a better place.   So, I will study English harder. If possible, I want to study abroad.
