3030 English and Myself

I have studied English since I was a junior high school student.  Thus, it is for six years when I have learned this language.  Now, I want to tell you about what I thought of English when I was in my junior high school and high school.

In junior high school, I studied English for the first time.  Then, I thought that English was easy and fun.  I used to speak daily English, for example, “This is a pen. Is this your pen?”  I enjoyed speaking English or writing English words.  However, when I was in the 9th grade, I had to study English for entrance exam of my high school.  Perhaps, then I
thought that all I had to do is to memorize a lot of English words and many grammar rules.  Maybe, the idea that English is for exams had rooted in my brain.

In high school, I had to read long sentences so quickly.  If I could not do that, I could not understand lessons and pass the entrance exam of Kwansei Gakuin university.  Then I thought English sentences are not the authors’ messages but to solve problems only.

These days, my ideas are changing greatly, thanks to Mr. Yasuda and Mr. Hirose.  English is a language.  English is not a tool of exam but a tool of communication with foreigners.  I will want to use the tool correctly.
