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

Chapter 7 LEVEL 4

Today I learned about “errands” and “chores”, and at last I could understand the difference between “errands” and “chores”. Also I practiced causative sentences. Maybe I gradually used to speak. Today we talk about our real errands or chores. I think topics itself weren’t difficult. Then I learned “making excuse”. Generally we make excused when we tell a lie. Anyway recently I have a long free talk time, but I can’t speak fluently. Still I can’t make a story in English well. So I should do a free discussion over thirty minutes. I think I should have more opportunities talk in English. In the future I’ll go abroad and try!

I can’t find cool whip anywhere in Japan. There is nowhere I can buy it in Japan. In America, I can find it everywhere. I thought there would be some where I could buy it in Tokyo, but there isn’t.

We have a long-distance relationship.
I work strange hours.
I haven’t had a Christmas party.
I have my film developed.
Taking out the trash.
I didn’t care about = neglect.

Chapter 7 LEVEL4

Today, my lesson was about “errands and chores”. However I haven’t used this word so first I couldn’t understand the meanings. “Errand” means an oral message entrusted to a person or a short trip taken to attend to some business often for another (was on an errand for his mother). For example errands are housework such as cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. “Chore ” means the regular or daily light work of a household or farm. For me it was difficult what is errands or not because I haven’t used to use this expression. Today I also learned a causative verb(have, get, let) again. I think it’s difficult to use at conversation, because I can’t order something in English yet. So first I should use this expression on writing.

City hall : the chief administrative building of a city
Prescription : a written direction for a therapeutic or corrective agent; specifically : one for the preparation and use of a medicine
Interrogate : to question formally and systematically

LEVEL4 Chapter6 Review

Today’s lesson was review about chapter 1 to 5. First I told about myself because I’ve had several big events in a few months. I think I’ve been very busy and haven’t able to relax at weekend. When it rains, it pours. I think today’s teacher spoke faster but I could catch him, so my listening ability is exactly improved. We enjoyed small talk for thirty minutes, I had a lesson. However today’s lesson is presentation! Teacher gave me some topic and I presented about it. I took care to speech in detail and I could manage to do. My teacher evaluate my presentation is better than other students. I was very pleased. The results of my daily effort bear fruits. Anyway through this chapter, I want get the ability to speak in detail, because the purpose of this chapter is it.

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.

Chapter5 LEVEL4

TToday’s teacher is from England. For me it was difficult to catch up his accents but it was challenging. Today I learned vacation again and topic wasn’t difficult for me. So today I took care speaking with more information with correct tense. I’ve not used to speak perfect tense yet. Anyway I don’t want to pay my money for silence so I talked and talked with details. If I speak with more information, it’s easy to communicate and understand. However today I thought I should better to discuss free topics. I’ve been to the English school for only six months, so after six months from now maybe I’ll be able to communicate better. Anyway I’ve been enjoyed studying English and it’s very important. Now I plan to listen to NHK English programs but I can’t advance recording. My IC recorder(voice-trek) can’t do that and moreover I find that the price become lower by ten thousand yen! I’m very surprised the progress of IC recorder. Now We can buy IC recorder with radio. Anyway can I record from my PC? I don’t know how to recorded.

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.

Chapter4 LEVEL4

Yesterday I drunk much, so today I hang over and very sleepy! But I went to English school. Today’s topic is vacation, so it wasn’t difficult for me. I learned a causative verb(let, make, have). Recently I studied foe the TOEIC so it wasn’t difficult too. I also learned a polite requests and did a role playing. I think I could manage to do it. At lesson today I took care about tense, but sometimes I spoke with wrong grammar. Anyway today I could enjoyed my lesson. When I’m going to have a level check test after finishing LEVEL4, I want to speak correct tense.

A : I’d like to have a special cake.
B(request) : can you put some writing on the cake?
C : Could you out some writing on it?
