About(ブログの説明)

2009年4月からそれぞれのクラス・ブログは、別のサイトに移動しました。そのため、このブログは、昨年から’Hide’s English for Life’ というタイトルで生まれ変わってスタートしています。途中、諸事情でブランクがありましたが、本日2010年3月12日から、本格的に稼働していきます。大人になって英語の勉強を再スタートされた方、学生の皆さん、急に英語が必要になった皆さんを念頭に置いて、私の英語学習経験と教授経験に基づく、コメントをいろいろ展開していきたいと思います。

注ーブログ記事の中には、日本語で紹介されているニュース等を私が英語で説明または翻訳したものがあります。英語の完成度の高さは、そこそこありますが、英語圏にいる親友の校正は受けていません。文責は、私にありますが、参考程度に留めて下さい。最終的な引用責任は、閲覧される一人一人の皆さんにあるということで、宜しくお願いします。

  1.  コメントを入れろというご下命なので。でも、これって他の皆さんも閲覧可能なんでしょうか。そうだとすると、きちんと書かないといけないでしょうか。
     それを前提に。
     東京で弁護士を営んで19年目に入りますが、この間英文の契約書締結交渉やらaffidavitの作成やらもしております。英語を読んでこうした文書をチェックするという作業はできるものの、いざ、英語を話そうと思うとこれがなかなか難しいというのが率直なところです。先日も、ブラジルの要人と会いましたが、話せたのはthank you! welcomといった単語程度で、何とも寂しいものです。読んでいるときは単語が浮かぶのに話そうとすると単語が浮かばないんですね。どうしてなのでしょう。スムーズに会話ができるようになりたいと思いますが。
     

  2. Good morning Hide,

  3. To: Tatsu-san & Christine-san
    Thanks for your generous and kind comments to my blogs site, which I feel still looks rough and ‘dis-organised’!! I will definitely smooth things over in the next few weeks. Keep your fingers crossed.

  4. Hello Hide
    I think this site has a lot of promise and has useful links – you will be pleased to know that I took the Oxford English test and passed! It is also English and not American, which is good news. I hope all your students benefit from your hard work. Best wishes from SW France.

  5. Hello, Andrew!
    Nice hearing your comment from the south of France! Thank you for stopping at my tentative blog site. Perhaps, the Oxford English test was too easy for you! Yes, I just hope all my students understand what I am trying to get at through the use of this blog site. I strongly believe that knowing English opens all sorts of doors for my students in their future career.
    Take care!

  13. Hello, Mako-san & Takayuki-san!!
    It was very nice to hear from you two!

    I know that writing in English is not that easy because it is not your first language. But, trying to make an effort to say something in English is the most important thing in my classes!

    So, turn up in time for your first lecture on Friday morning tomorrow!

  14. Good evening, Tomohiro-san

    OK. Don’t worry too much about how good your English is! If you have something to say, that is a start.

    What is a point of becoming fluent in English if you do not have very much to say? So, relax and turn up in time for tomorrow’s lecture!!

  19. Hi,hide.

    I am very sorry to late comment. I forgot!
    I often foget many things. I am careful from now on.

    I entered Hiroshima City University from this year.
    Nice to meet you!

    I’m weak English but I want to speak English very well.
    So I will study hard.

    See you tomorrow.

  20. Good morning, Hiroki-san
    Thanks for your e-mail. Well, done! Don’t worry about how good your English is. That is not very important. As long as you want to say something in English, that is all you need to keep yourself going.

  21. Hi, Hide.
    How are you getting on?
    Well, I can’t send a mail of your blog site at my home. But I can send it at school. I don’t know why. So, I always send it at school. Let’s talk about it on the next class.
    See you.

  22. Hello, Mako-san

    Very strange that you cannot send an e-mail from your home computer!! Anyway, I am pleased to know that you can at least send e-mails from school. Yes, come to talk to me in the class!

    PS-このメールを読んでる受講生の皆さん!何でも良いから英語でメールしましょう!!最初の一歩が一番勇気が要りますが、後は楽ですよ。

    Cheers!
