In these 2 or 3 years, I'v stayed away from English because there has not been any good reason to use this language. We've got a English lecturer here in our office though he was very good speaker for Japanese so saddly even when I tried to talk in this awkward English he once will talk back something in English but switched to Japanese which he saw much suitable for both of us.
I want to use this everytime if I have a chance otherwise I miss the chance to use in my life.This time I booked a trial lesson of NOVA and incidentally I didn't tell them that I used to be a student of once existed old NOVA, hey that will be profitable for me to take a trial lesson for free.If we take a lesson we should pay 2000yen.
This was my strong point used be, but unawares I lost the capability using language. Just I see the people in movies and dramas speaking in English and think that I want to be like them.(But they are natives, I'm not a native...it is a bit of odd...though)
When I was in Canada, especialy around the end of the year 2007 or when I tried to get a job especially English linguistic competence needed my capability of this language was highest in my life ever.As time goes by, I have been missing this ability litte by little...
After the disaster, one thing has come to my mind that was I should do to change my life that I'm coursing for a long time and hesitate to look into the effort that I should take to better.So far I have indulged in an easy way of life which means less responsible immatured one. Yesterday, I spent all the day in the apartment without doing anything special, just brought a papers to a post office and practiced the piano "Hajimeno-Ippo" expecting to play and sing with kids in my class. What is the most kill my calmness is a stack of paperworks and endless kind of extra jobs. I have just recovered my calmness in these 黄金周. Involving with kids is one thing that I can recover the concentration and also my mind is mostly soothed down. I could feel more familier when I have my own class, even as a one who was teaching out of the class for more than 2 years. I'm never a one arrogant but always searching the best way to lead kids to the better.Morality is the most important part of my basic idea. The last day, I heard a voice of "Kawaiso" which means "pity" while I took a funny game with kids. Funny games and laughings makes nice atmosphare and a necessary element when we build a good friend ship but we however need to be cautious against cynicism and immorality everytime.We are not trying to make fun of the others but laughing each other.So one noticed me to may risk the one's morality although that was not (seems to be)serious at the moment. The voice "Kawaiso" from kids means so important.We should be sensitive to this kind of feeling and this receptivity help you to nip a bullying in a bud in the other way.Arrogance oftenly numbs the sensitiveness so this is why we neet to be modest.
Laughings are playing a good amount of part when we try to build a nice relationship but that is on the other hand have a possibility to make someone to be laughed. When we belittle the member's basic human rights there appears the readiness of wrong things like bullyings.
Long time ago,I had a friend.I had one thing that I don't like him.That was he anytime is try to pick up others failure or weakness and making it fun.He did never seem to be aware of that the person who being laughed even has a pride.And worse, he misunderstood that he successfully made the good mood in the group.
I have applied for Chinese language level test,this time level 3. The very middle level of the certification. The other idea that I take level semi 2 as well as 3 at the same day have I.But it will take nearly 4 hours and I look it too hard then I have decided to take only level 3.
I'm considering what to talk in the chat with Chinese pengyou.In the case, I'm asked some question I set some answer in my mind beforehand.Honestly I'm not so good at talking on the phone because I couldn't make myself understood well on the phone. I don't have so many hobby to tell as a topic.
I'm hoping that I can encourage kids around me by the way of showing myself as encouraging and pushing myself up to achieve the higher goal. As a one beginner, I practice a song on the piano from its scratch. In front of kids, I failed again and once again. But in the end, I reach the goal. I play the song as its perfect. Sometimes I am called as a SuperMan. But I'm not a SuperMan. My life histry has made this possible. This is not an exception, it happens to everybody. So I can tell it to anybody that nothing is impossible. They will understand it. Now I'm facing the big obstruction too.
I have just noticed that only people can help the other. There are countles of things that I want to send to children but the time given is limited.
It has been a month past since I took charge of this class. There has been a bunch of paper works, preparations and back log which has not been finished. Even I'm in need of some trainings and observations. I'm heavily in need of quality time to clear my mind up and check the back logs one by one. The time was passing like killing kind, other sections' worker urging me to submit the paper work unfinished and sometimes it burned my back.
Things are very peaceful as to regard with kids. There are neither bullyings or yellings. But accumulatig back logs increases my job and overtime.
This holidays let me out of the exhaustion and help me clear up my brain. I had been panicked to some extent. On Monday,I will be back to my work place and will see kids' faces assumed some to be absent due to their family's affair. I will tackle with all those jobs left behind on Monday afternoon, in reality there are at this moment no back logs which over the dead line.So I'v got some leeway in my mind.
One of my co-worker is monitering my working attitude in less nice way. I as I'v tald work as hard and honestly as possible but this guy seemingly has been tald to put me under control by some seniors. I don't like it.

What is the most efficient method to boost your understanding ability to spoken English?Here is one, first rip the CD attached with the text book into your pc and play it faster speed. This is not a fishy way like the one shown on the book proposing a magic like method to boost your English communication ability without any labour. Do not ever try to listen to the English played in 10 times or 50 times faster speed. It is impossible and not efficient way at all. Do not believe in the magic llike method that if you listen in 50 times faster speed, that improve your understanding ability rapidly. Just start with 1.2 times faster speed, and then speed it up little by lettle.There is no short cut to improve your ability. If you can understand what spoken in the CNN CD I recommened in 2 times faster speed without any trouble, you could do without any trouble with the TOEIC test. Although the English spoken in the Toeic is too clear and articulate unlike the spoken language in daily conversation.
My daily note, for a long time I am mostly focused on how I can be praised by others in the work place. This time I will try to shift the way how to behave and build the human relationship in the work place, I try to more give complements to others. That does not matter how ever I was praised in the work place, if I did not praise others, I can not motivate the people or control the people. It is clear that I am going to be a older person in the new workplace. People will expect my competency as a matter of fact so I will not need to show my competency. It is given that I will be competent. But people will see me how I can galvanize the people. I should be competent for the start at this time. The leader who manage at the place will see me how I have a potential to be a possible managial position. Because this is a part time job this time. And they know my career I persue. For a long time I have been sticking to the value to be one being praised his compitency everytime. I should be grown out of it. This time I will give a word of complement to others. Giving things is the way of grown up doing. Giving donations, Giving a word of thank you, Giving a complement, Giving a credit to proper person....
Giving things is the way of grown up doing, because if you will give something to someone, inevitablly you have to have something in you already. Affluent people only can share the things. This is resouces in you that makes you affluent.
People content with much resouces, who can shere his or her things to others, we call them adults.
アルクのVOAとAFNは常に推薦しています。 絶対に買ってください。 多聴、速聴、ボキャビル、なんでも来いです。 自分の場合は、このVOAをPCに落として、 なんと、 １．５倍速で聴いています。 凄く良いトレーニングになります。 話者もいろいろなアクセントがある人が喋っているので、 キレイな発音のナレーターが台本を読みながら喋っているいわゆるテキスト本よりも、より、実戦向きといえます。 I recommend VOA news flash for text books if you are higher than intermidiate. The vocavrary used in the cd are wide.The speech speed is fast. They tout the text as the best fittable text book for TOEIC test preparation. I can not say it to anybody though. What do you think of the accent spoken in the cd, they are not necessarily native speakers, some of them are non-native speakers. In terms of the preparation for toeic it might not be the perfect text book though I am using this book for practicing of daily conversation. Because in daily conversation, sometimes we need to talk with non-native speakers. That was one reason I had much of trouble when I worked oversea. People might speak in a little strange way compared to native. They may have an accent or peculiar speech habits. That remind me that one co-worker had listening trouble. When I said a word habit. No other co-worker and native people had any trouble to listen my habit but she was insisting on listening it hobby. And the same person the other story, when I said it's mild, she mis-listen it "it's mine." And the other case with a Japanese, whose English was really pathetic even though he was student who studied only English and when I said it is a canned turkey and he mis-listened that and said KENTUCKY and really insistent.Even though I corrected it and said canned turkey, he still insisted on KENTUCKY. How stupid you are! Who would eat KENTUCKY fried chicken in the morning? Incidentally, I was complimented of clear pronounciation by native speakers including close friends.Just I wanted to prove that it was not a problem of my accent.
Today I went to Berlitz to take a trial free lesson. Beforehand I had booked free trial lesson personally in the school and got a brochure. A week later I took the lesson at the school.
First, I was asked some question from a staff member and filled in a questonaire. Answered the questions about the experience of English education that I have taken. This was the third free trial lesson I have ever taken, one was in GABA the other was in Shane.They ask the very same question" Are you using English in your job?"
An instructor came in the small room. She asked me a couple of questions so as to estimate me English level.
She went out of the room and discussed the level of my English.
In 5 minites, she came in again. And I took a level 7 business lesson.
I took that its lesson was properly organized, like they offering the lesson as same as the lesson they usually offer needless to say using the same textbook.
ニックは教えかたはあまり上手くないけど、頑張ろうと努力してるし、（天狗みたいに顔を赤くして考え込むけどね。）なんといってもネイティブとタダで勉強できるのは大いによろし。 I am reseaching several conversation school. This is the midtime result. I reseached GABA, GEOS, AEON, NOVA, SHANE and am going to reseach ECC and Berlitz. GABA they provide very quality lessons, this time I took a free trial lesson and I got some advice in person also and from its webpage.Their support system seems to be really well organized and good.But the each lesson cost is 7000 yen and it almost impossible to cover for me. NOVA I used be a student of the school before it was closed.I still have 5Voicetickets un-expired.But I called to the nearest school and they said I have to pay other cost to regain the membership sounded stupid. AEON In this school, we might have lessons from Japanese instractors.How ever good their English are, it would not worth paying money.I'm advanced speaker and there is no point.And also we will have only one fixed teacher.I want to have lessons with various teachers with various back ground and accent, speech habits, his/her particular thought.Only one fixed teacher maybe good for beginner. GEOS It's out of the question.At first I visited its school located in Tamachi to get a brochure and ask some questions.I was wearing a nomal business suit and bahaved really decently.The probrem was that a woman staff member who answered me was weird.I opened the door and entered the school and saw the woman probably late 20s walking with tip toed most sneaky way.And looking at my face with cynical facial expression and asking me "w..w..what is it??".Her social manner was in a half way and not up to snuff.She mixed casual langueges within the talk and almost handed out the brochure with one hand. GEOS sucks.
