英語の聞き流し教材があるが、

それで上達するんなら 三味線聞き流すだけで上達するハズだ。

聞いただけで上達する人は相当の上級者。

Toeic の勉強をしておりますが、Toeicは

リスニングとリーディングのテストしかないので、

いくらToieiだけ勉強しても、

センテンスコンストラクション(文章を作る能力)

は絶対に上達しない。

つまり話せるようには絶対なりません。

英語がしゃべれない英語の先生たち

話せるようになるには話す練習をしないといけません。

というわけで

DMMでオンライン英会話をやっておりますが、 

講師に関してはおおむね満足ですが、

今まで感じたデメリットを上げておきます。

Toeic対策教材 も Toeicに即していない問題があったり、

予約を取らないと教材が見られないのでどこまで行ったかチェックしないと分かりません。

上級教材が ネイティブでも知らない表現が入っていたり、

それをサポートに問い合わせすると、

「事前に確認してそういう教材は飛ばしてください」

との答え。

ネイティブが知っているかどうかどうやって事前にチェックするのでしょうか?

というワケで教材があまり良くない。

サポートも頼りになりません。

後ネイティブとして南アフリカの人が出てくるのもちょっと

自分としては不満です。

差別するワケではありませんが 人口の9.6%しかネイティブ英語をしゃべっていない国の人が

ネイティブ、として出てくるので、発音も大きく違うし、

これも難点です。

予約は前日までに取れば希望講師は大体取れないことはありません。

不満点もありますが要は自分のやる気です。

他を知らないのであまり比較はできませんが、

おおむねおすすめです。

天秤投げ

This technique is called 'Tenbin Nage'(Scale throw)
but it's called ’Kokyu Nage'(Breathing throw) officially.

この合気道 技、天秤投げ ですが、 合気道本部道場では

呼吸投げというのが公式だそうです。

合気道技は 創始者がマニュアルを残さなかったので、

あまり技の名前が統一されておらず、

何か技の名前を聴くとたいてい「呼吸投げ」だったりします。

I was sad that Taste of Italy closed . I had wanted them to make my wedding cake.So I was excited when their former patry chef opened Sweet Occasions in the Plaza Shopping Center.
He made our cake, and it was perfect!

Our guests kept commenting on hw much they liked the cake.
I would Sweet Occasions to anyone.

The Evollution of a City
When the Plaza Shopping Center opend on River Road in July of last year.Pineville City mayor Angelar Portofino predicted that it would benefit the city by bringing shoppers from neaby towns to the area. Based on a 25% increase in the city's sales tax receipts over the last six months,Ms. Portofino appears to have been correct.

However,less frequently mentioned was the potential effect of such commercial development on the city's downtown business district,
which includes a number of small, family-owned stores and restaurants.In the past two months,three of these businesses Quality Books, Ashley's beaty salon, and Taste of Italy have either closed or aanounced plans to close. all citing a decline in customers since the Plaza's opening

Still the mayor belives that the overall effects of new developments such as the Plaza was positive, It's certainly dissapoointing when a beloved business like Quality bookds closes she said.

But new businesse bring new opportunities for all residenst of pineville city, including new jobs.

ニューヨーク市長の演説です。

ニューヨーク市長の演説です。

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZwz5h-l6mI


ここにニューヨーク市長としての約束があります。

私たちは市民が立ち上がる為に、あらゆる手段を使う。

全てのイスラム教徒が登録を強制されたら、ニューヨークは手段をいとわず、法律的に断固拒否する。

移民の家族を引き離すよう、国に命令されたら、私たちの警察は断固拒否する。

もし国が法に従う移民を追放するつもりなら、阻止して、

彼らや、その家族を守る為の弁護士を彼らに付けるために、市議会に働きかける。

司法省が警察に職務質問を命令するようなら、私たちは従わない。

近くの警察で人種でプロファイリングをするようなことはしない。

ニューヨークでの計画出産の為の資金が危うければ、女性に必要な健康保険を確保する。

イスラム教徒や、ユダヤ教徒、LGBTのコミュニティが攻撃されれば、
その攻撃者を見つけ出し、逮捕し、訴追する。

選挙の日に私たちが何者であるかは全く変わっていない。

私たちはいつでも ニューヨークなのだ。

私たちはいつでも ニューヨークなのだ。(スペイン語で)

う〜ん、カッコイイ。ハリウッドスターみたいだ笑
