You CAN learn English!

You can learn English! It’s just a matter of putting in the time to study and coming to class to speak and listen. When you miss classes, that’s a missed chance to practice your speaking and listening.

You learned one of the most difficult languages in the world–Japanese. You can learn English. Luckily, there are 2,000 English words used in Japanese. But sometimes the pronunciation is different, or the meaning is slightly changed. However, knowing that you know 2,000 English words from the start is helpful.

Why are you in your English class? Is it a requirement? Especially if it is, don’t waste your time! You are lucky to be given the chance to learn one of the most important languages in the world. It is the language of business, of travel, it is often the linking language when two people cannot speak each other’s language. It is also one of the two official languages of the Olympics. Most people never get the chance to learn English because either they are too poor to be able to afford paying for classes, or simply too busy working and raising a family.

Are you in this class because you want to improve your English? If so, great! Keep in mind your reason for wanting to improve: work? Travel? a hobby? to keep your brain young, or another reason? Keep your goal in your head. Remind yourself of how happy you will be once you achieve it.

Give yourself small achievable goals. For example: by December I will get Level 3 on the Eiken test. Tell your friends and family of your goals. This will put pressure on you to study.

The English writing system of 26 letters is easy. Pity the poor foreigners who must study hiragana, katakana and kanji as an adult-in order to learn Japanese!

You can probably read an English book today! Not true for the foreign person, who is functionally illiterate in Japanese.

How can you speak?

You speak by doing it! You get better at tennis by practicing tennis, not by reading books about tennis. You must pick up your racquet and play. You must speak English to improve your English. Maybe you can only say very little at first, and that’s ok! Little by little you will speak more. But you must open your mouth and speak. You can study all the grammar books at Yurindo and still not be able to speak. Just do it! Start by speaking as much as you can today.

The best way to learn to speak on your own, is by buying study cards at a ¥100 shop and writing down sentences and questions that you want to say in English. For example:

I am from Tokyo.

私は東京から来ました

Make 50 cards, learn them. Test yourself in English to Japanese and Japanese to English. Try using what you learn in your English class. Once you can say all 50 cards perfectly, put them away, and make 50 new cards. Soon you will be speaking English.

Why make sentences and questions instead of simply vocabulary cards? Because you can learn grammar and patterns at the same time as you learn vocabulary.

Have fun with it! Learning English should be fun!

どうすれば英語が上達するのか?

どうすれば英語が上達するのか?

佐藤 かずや

私は自身の英語能力を上達させるための一番良い方法は、外国人と会話をすることだと思います。私の専攻は体育、スポーツそしてレジャーマネジメントです。私はアンディの研究室に参加しました。彼はアメリカ人で私が通う大学の先生です。私は海外のスポーツやレジャーについて学んでいます。

それは私の英語力を上達させる上でとても効果的です。私は外国人の先生と話したり、そして生の英語を聞くことで海外のスポーツやレジャーを学ぶことと、自分の英語力の上達させることの両方を行っています。わたしは「習うより慣れろ」という教訓を学びました。これは何かを他の誰かに教えてもらうよりも自身の体で覚えるほうが身につくという意味です。自分自身がやることは他の誰かがやっている所を見るよりもより効果的です。私たちは英語を学ぶことにおいても同じ事が言えます。私の意見では、日本人は英語を読んだり書くことは出来ますが、英語を話したり聞いたりすることは出来ません、なぜなら、日本の学校は実際に英語を話すことよりも、英語を書いたり翻訳することを通して学習することに重点を置いているからです。これが日本人の英語力についての問題であります。日本の政府はスピーキングやリスニングの授業を日本人の教育システムのために取り入れることを促進するべきです。もし日本人が英語を話す機会を得ることが出来れば、彼らの英語力はより良くなるでしょう。
