Description

1. A lot of class with respect to English at Gunma University.

After I graduated from high school, I went to Gunma university. I was in a member of English major. Then I had to take a lot of classes learning English knowledge. For example, linguistics and phonology. Linguistics is the study of languages in general and of particular languages, their structures, grammar, and history. Phonology is the study of the system of speech sounds in a language, or the system of sounds itself. Thanks to learning these subjects, I was able to understand what English is. In the end of the class which I learned linguistics and phonology, I came to like English.

2. Reading English books.

I took an English class last year. The teacher of the class made us read a lot of books and make a summary of the book which we felt interesting, fantastic or wonderful. It was a weekly assignment. It was hard for us to do, but it is also useful for us to improve our English skills. And in the class, we had to explain about the book we read last week. The activity is a little bit difficult for us, but it was fun and we were able to know a lot of books in this class.

3. Talking to English native speakers.

When I was a junior high school student and a high school student, I was not able to talk with foreign people in English. I was able to write an English sentence so I thought why I cannot speak English. In the English class, I did not almost speak English but Japanese because I did not have a confident to speak. After I entered Gunma university, there are some classes which the teachers speak only English. I took the class for the first time, I was surprised confused. I was gradually accustomed to the situation and I can speak English a little.

4. Learning other cultures.

I had never learned other cultures since I entered Gunma university. Even though I had ever learned our own country’s culture a little. So when I learned a lot of knowledge about other cultures, I realized that I did not know anything about others even ours. It was good for me to learn other cultures because I was able to understand English very well. For example, native speakers use English properly depend on scenes and situations. The same things applies to Japanese. When we usually talk with my friends, we use casual words and we use formal words in official places. Through I learned other cultures, I also learned our own culture.

5. Watching movies in English.

For the first time in watching a movie was Harry Potter. Looking back then I was six years old so I could English at all. However, after I grew up I learned English and once I saw Harry Potter I noticed that interest. It is a work that seems to want to see the continuation because the story is very attractive. Besides Harry Potter, I also like a movie called Home Alone, and it is a funny story that the heroine is a small, but he was beating down bad adult. Because it is English, it might be such an interesting work.

6. Learning English history.

I have never thought the history of English until I entered Gunma university. I am in the member of English major and I learn a lot o knowledge about English. I felt that especially the history of English was very important in learning English. Because knowing the origin of English and the subsequent trends leads to English that we are learning now. For example, English is so complicated that it is difficult to fully understand because many languages were introduced into English and vocabulary increased in a long history. I learned that so I can understand what language a word comes from.

7. Traveling all over the world.

My parents like to travel a lot of countries. My mother tripped mainly in Asia such as China or Vietnam and my father tripped mainly in Europe such as France or Germany. I am proud of my parents and I adore them. I have a dream of traveling all over the world. I make an effort to make that dream come true. I practice hard using English, listening to a conversation spoken in English. In the future, I will be able to come to speak English and other languages, for example German, I want to travel a lot of countries.

Explanation of my theme

The theme of this book is that my feeling to foreign language, especially English.

Each moment of 10 memories

Hello, everyone.

I’m Jun.

I told you 10 memories of learning English language last week. Today, I’ll show you each moment.

1. I learned linguistics, sociolinguistics, English history and so on. I never heard all of those, so I was interested in those and felt being familier with English.

2. I read many books in English. I sometimes read Japanese stories and that was something new.

3. I was taught English by native speakers. I was embarrassed because I had to talk with them in English.

4. I learned other cultures at GU. I was surprised to know the difference among many countries.

5. I like watching English movies. I can enjoy understanding English. I think that it is important to understand English as English.

6. I studied English history. I thought that English is compricated language because of Great Vowel Shift. It changed pronunciation and spelling. When I knew this, to tell the truth, I came to be afraid of study English.

7. I had traveled some times, and I found that English is available in the world. I already knew that, but I experienced for the first time.

8. I have never lived in other countries, but my father had lived in France for two years. I listened to the stories which his experience in France. I felt like living there.

9. My parents learned a lot of languages, English, French, Chinese and Koran. I know each languages a little and what I want to say is that every languages is difficult for L2 learner to acquire foreign languages.

10. English is very difficult so it is important to understand the difference between English and other languages. For example, pronunciation, English has a lot of vowels and consonant. It means that we cannot speak English easily. If we understand that, we can speak English well.

Thank you for reading.
