I went to Daiba to attend the Gartner Symposium 2008. There were many presentations regarding IT and business. I like hearing up-to-date information.

Some of the presentations were given in English, so all the audience got wireless receivers to hear simultaneous interpretation. In order to practice English, I decided to enjoy some presentations without the device.

I found it easy to hear the presentations about IT because I have a lot of knowledge about that topic. We Japanese use the same words as English in a computer technology field.

However, it was really difficult to understand the presentations regarding business. I am not so interested in business. That’s why I don’t know much about business words.

I realized that having an interest in many things can make it easier to learn English.
