This was the first lesson with Vlada. At first I could not catch his request for contact because of my bad condition of Skype. Looking for FAQ, I finally found the way how to contact a teacher not on my contact list. There's a skype name on my booking list! So I gave a call to Vlada and we were able to start our lesson at last although I still faced a trouble about screen sharing. Vlada patiently waited for solving my skype troubles and corrected my English e-mail quickly. In spite of his photo, he is very frank and friendly teacher;-) He kindly supplemented our lesson with extra time for introducing ourselves. Thank you, Vlada. See you soon!

Tonight we talked about Fukuoka that CNN took up as a most innovative city in Japan. The head offices of big companies are in Tokyo. We have to create innovative cities in local areas in order to invite young people. From that viewpoint, I will pay proper attention to the future of Fukuoka.

After a small talk about our weekend, we discussed inequality of income in the world with an article about it. Under the present world situation like inauguration of Trump and hard Brexit, I have a strong interest in this topic. Frou suggested me a good topic at the right time. We talked about a relation between inequality and happiness, social change and inequality, present Japanese and Filipino income situation, factors on modern Japanese historical change of inequality, AI & robotics's future influence to unemployment, etc. I proposed to talk more about this topic and she said she would give me another related article in near future. Thank you for always giving me an interesting topic, Frou. See you soon. Take care!

Today we read an article about reindeer situation. It says reindeer are having a hard time to getting their food in colder winter and get pregnant earlier, which leads to smaller, weaker reindeers. This is all the effect of human-made climate change. That's sad reality but every single one of us should think about what we can do to stop it. I appreciate this kind of articles, which promote our awareness about the serioue issue we are facing. I like this article,, thank you Max!

Today we talked about how British people spend their Christmas and New Year Holidays. It was interesting as I have learned a lot from Kathryn. Then I asked about riding a bike in England. I had a good time talking with her.

It was very nice talking with you, see you next time ! :D Andrew is a very nice teacher with a very clear british accent, which is easy to catch. Beginners who had started learning English by the American accentmight find that slightly hard to understand, but I am sure that you'll be used to it very easily. Nowdays, even the English tests popular in Japan like the Eiken, requires people to be able to catch, understand, and find the right information from every accents. Which means, every people learning English needs to be used to every popular accents. I recommend you all to try his lesson. He taught me about the collocations today. I'm not very good at those stuff, but his explanation of that was tremendously easy to understand.

バイリンガールひとみの海外教育(生活)体験記/イメージ・バナー2


第67回:PRAY FOR KUMAMOTO ( 掲載日: 2016.4.21)


4月14日
熊本を震源とする大地震が九州地方を襲いました。
亡くなった方、怪我をされた方、避難所生活の方、
たくさんの方が被害にあっています。

私の親戚の多くは九州地方に住んでおり、
最初の震源地には従姉妹も住んでいます。
みんな何度も続く余震に怯え眠れない日々が続いているとのこと。
知人のおじい様は命は無事なもののお宅は崩壊したそうです。
そんな中、誰かを批判したり、窃盗や女性を対象にする被害が
増えているという非常に心が傷むニュースも耳に入ってきます。

私も阪神大震災の被災者として思うことはたくさんありますが、
一人一人小さなことでもできることはあります。

被災されている方、まずは自分の命を。
自分の身を守って、余裕ができたら近くの方々を。
それでいいんだと思います。

先週末、高校の友人の結婚式がありました。
その際海外からも同級生が数名きたのですが、地震のニュースを見て、
今自分たちがいる場所で同じことが起こったらどうすればいいのか、
日本語は分からないしどこに避難して何をすればいいのか分からない、
そんな話をしていました。

以前こちらで災害時の英語のフレーズをご紹介させて頂きましたが、
九州に住んでいらっしゃる外国の方々、旅行でいらっしゃった際に
被災した方々も多くいることと思います。

もし近くに外国の方がいらっしゃったら、一言でいいので声をかけてあげてください。

危険です!動かないでください!
It’s dangerous! Don’t move!

ドアを開けて、出入り口を確保してください。
Open the door and secure an evacuation route.

津波が来ています。
Tsunami is coming.

火山が噴火しています。
A volcano is erupting.

高台に逃げてください。
Please escape to a higher land.

テーブルの下に隠れてください。
Get under the tables!

窓のそばから離れてください。
Get away from the window.

火事です!
Fire!

着いてきてください。
Follow me.

誰かいませんか?
Is anyone here?

お困りですか?
Are you in trouble?

助けは必要ですか?
Do you need help?

怪我はないですか?
Are you ok? No injuries?

気をつけて!
Watch out!


1日も早く、熊本の皆様、そして九州の皆様が安心して穏やかな日々を
取り戻せるようお祈りしております。

そして、今私たちにできること。

寄付、支援物資。
毎日をきちんと過ごすこと。
緊急時に備えること。

心でも形でも
助け合って。

PRAY FOR KUMAMOTO.
