Just for practicing writing2019.03.12

My dad asked me not to write about my family, but as I didn’t think I could promise that, so I didn’t say yes. Now I have a good reason to write something in English. Not only for that, I simply need to output my English.

I have never “studied abroad” or lived outside of Japan for more than 3 months and I can understand a good amount of English spoken in radio, movies or dramas, and can speak English to some extent. It feels like my listening/speaking skills got better since I started watching TV dramas constantly, but it’s true that I’ve studied English for more than 20 years, and that includes all those school years, so I can’t deny the importance of studying grammars or reading or writing.

In that sense, it is challenging for me to introduce grammar or guide them to get closer to English without making them feel like they’re “studying”. After all, I think it depends on how much I can motivate them or make them get interested in English. As I wrote before, simply showing my love for learning languages might help the most, and I need to remember it more often as I tend to see and follow what they want to do.

Well, this text sounds like nothing but some meaningless things. I hope I write more good stuff next time!
