Chapter 10 (LEVEL 4 )

In this chapter, I learned about the headline of news. Foe example current events or natural disasters etc.. I thought this chapter is easy but I heard some new words.

A Happy New Year (Chapter 9LEVEL4)

How have you been? Last year I moved into my new apartment. I like neighborhood, but communications system is absolutely bad! First I use Softbank cellular but my room is outside of communication range. Moreover my room “Flet’s 光” is available, but often system down! I had to call Technician from NTT and get repaired. But now it’s not completely fixed. So I couldn’t update my blog.

Chapter 8 LEVEL 4 part 2

Recently we study each chapter faster and today I finished the chapter 8. In chapter 8 I talked about the neighbors and neighborhood. However we don’t talk with neighbors basically in Japan and I’ve rarely told with my neighbors. Anyway each chapter (1 – 11) are connected with same topics and topics about daily life aren’t difficult for me. At LEVEL 3, I learned how to look for, lent and move, but today I learned how to explain my neighborhoods. It’s easy but I couldn’t speak in detail. I also learned “(seems, looks, sounds, feels) like” and I felt it was difficult. I can’t use certainly. “feel like noun.”

Dorm = dormitory : a residence hall providing rooms for individuals or for groups usually without private baths
Condo = condominium : individual ownership of a unit in a multiunit structure (as an apartment building) or on land owned in common (as a town house complex)
Tenant : one who has the occupation or temporary possession of lands or tenements of another; specifically : one who rents or leases (as a house) from a landlord

NHK English programs

Yesterday, I wrote about NHK English programs. When I was a junior high school students, I heard NHK “基礎英語”, but I didn’t like listening it. Anyway at that time there only 2 or 3 programs, I think so. However to my surprise there are over twenty programs. I think the reason is English becomes more important now. I think these program is better than PODCAST, because quality and reference are very good. The program times is not too long and short, so I can concentrate well. Of course it’s free to listen. If I can record it, I feel more comfortable. I wonder what textbook for a business English should I use, but now I can listen two programs. I think program quality of NHK is better than other broadcasting stations or TV stations. Next year if I will a lottery, I’ll buy IC recorder with radio.

My Next Target

I took the TOEIC and I’m going to take the EIKEN, but I’m very busy and don’t have an enough time to prepare. So I take a short break for examinations. I also finished textbooks so I want new my target. Now my daily study is “shadowing” and “Koedas advance”. Next year I should try something special using my company’s welfare program. Because my study tends to get into a rut, so I want to need changes. It may be good to take GTEC again. Anyway I still continue studying simple honesty. And I should start business writing for my work. There are still many things I can try. . . Anyway it's about time to restart writing a daily.
