フリートーク

最近は週3-4くらいでフリートークとDME advancedレッスンをぼちぼち受けています。

今日はダニエル先生でフリートークレッスンを受け、セブのサントニーニョ祭りについて話を聞きました。サントニーニョとはセブ島に伝わる幼子イエスの像の事で、セブの家庭にはほぼ必ずある像らしいです。

以前からよくセブ島新参者である先生は、セブの家庭にある幼子イエスはなんか違うんだ!びっくりするよ!と熱く語っていましたが想像がつかないので聞き流していたのですが、今日はとうとう画像を送ってくれました。

たしかにすごくきらびやかかも・・・。イエス様なのに顔黒いし・・・。想像以上でした!

フリートーク 11月24日

11月24日に受けたフリートークをまとめてみました。今度同じ質問を受けたらスムーズに返せればいいな・・・と。本当は録音した方がいいのでしょうね。

. Where do you live?
I live in the suburbs of Tokyo with my husband. We moved to this town six months ago from another prefecture due to his transfer. It's a peaceful area with a lot of greenery, parks, and public facilities.

2. Have you already adjusted to living there?
I think I've pretty much adjusted to living in this area. I like this town so far.

3. What do you do?
I am an assistant for the manager in a xxx company. I found this job shortly after we moved. I am often asked to help them translate technical documents. That's one of the reasons why I really have to improve my English, as well as to learn technical knowledge. Because otherwise, I might get fired!

4. Do you plan to start a family?
I don't know yet. I feel I am not ready, but at the same time I also feel that if I want one, I will have to start thinking about it right now. I think it's time to talk things over with my husband.

5. What do you think is the most important thing when studying a foreign language?
I believe pronunciation is the most important thing when studying foreign languages. If you don't understand their pronunciation, you won't understand what they say and other way around. Moreover, I think it is very important to try to mimic how they speak to show respect to people who speak the language.

6. Have you spent a lot of money learning English?
Yes, and I sometimes feel frustrated at the lack of progress although I've spent all the money and time on studying.

7. Do you take any other online school lessons?
No, I don't. Before I signed up for this school, English Bell, this January, I had been a student of Rarejob for seven months. Rarejob is the online English school managed by Japanese and probably one of the best known online English schools in my country. All the tutors are students or graduates of the university of Phillipines. Most of the lessons are free talk lessons, and it was interesting because I was able to speak to people in other countries and share thoughts. But I noticed that I couldn't express my thoughts well because of the lack of grammar knowledge and vocabulary. I've come to think that I need to learn English based on a proven method by professional teachers. That's why I chose this school.
