In my previous entry, I talked about one of my weaknesses when it comes to learning English. It was about something like how I can't sit at a desk alone for a long time, like a difficult child.

Today, I was being like a difficult child because I was confused about myself. Earlier today I was not able to sit at my desk and write a journal, but now I am able to focus.

It's time to write something positive.

The other day at the station, I bumped into a friend who has been working as an interpreter. We decided to go to a nearby Starbucks to catch up with each other. As we talked, our chat touched on the subject of how to acquire linguistic skills, because we used to study together in the same English group.

Thanks to my friend! I saw the light with her ideas of how to memorize new words
and phrases. She gave me a great tip, which is that I should use a recorder!

I'm going to record myself reading both Japanese and English sentences. It will be like a game; as soon as I hear a Japanese sentence, I'll quickly rephrase it in English before hearing the correct English sentence.

It sounds fun, doesn't it?
I'm going to try to do it by myself for a while to boost my vocabulary.

今日、日本語に訳するパワーがないので、ごめんなさい。 日本語なしです。
