街のいたるところでが咲き始めましたね

LINEで配信している『使えるフレーズ』のご紹介です!

 

 

Hello everyone!

 

Flowers are starting to bloom,aren't they?

This week's phrase is "I don't mind".

It means that you are happy with either choice, or you don't have strong feelings either way.

 

For example:

"I don't mind where we go, so it's up to you."

A: "Is it OK if my friend from Tokyo stays with us?"

B: "Sure, I don't mind!"

 

Don't confuse "I don't mind" with "I don't care".

"I don't care" means you are not interested, and can sound a little unfriendly.

 

日本語解説:

I don't mindとは、『どちらでも大丈夫ですよ!』や『気にしませんよ!』という意味です。

注意ポイント!! I don't care の意味は似ていますが、『(興味がないから)どちらでもいいです』というニュアンスも含まれるので、使い方に気をつけてください。

 

 

Until next time! 次回をお楽しみに

Hi everyone!

It’s my first time to write a blog and I’m so excited to share with you some of my adventures here in Japan. I’ve been here for a year and have visited a few cities around Kansai and Kanto areas.

 

 The most memorable was when I explored Tokyo on a motorcycle last year! Since I didn’t have enough time to stay there, my kind friend made sure that I would be able to enjoy the awesome sights of the capital city and would hit all the good spots! It was such an incredible feeling to get a taste of ‘the city from the future.’

 

Here are some iconic photos I took all the way from Asakusa to Odaiba!

Good afternoon!

 

I hope you enjoyed Naoko's blog about La La Land. It really made me want to watch it!

In today's blog I'd like to give you some advice on learning English from watching films.

 

Here are 3 reasons why films are a great way to study!

 

1) Unlike from textbooks and language CD's, you can learn natural, conversational English. New vocabulary is in context (前後関係), so it's much easier to remember.

 

2) You can pause, rewind and replay films as much as you need. This means you can learn at your pace without getting stressed or feeling like you've missed something important.  

 

3) Watching films is really fun and it gives you a chance to learn about other countries' culture and everyday life.

 

So, here are some tips for studying from films!

- Choose a film for your level. For beginners I recommend animations or romantic comedies, as the English will be easier. For advanced students choose a genre you like, but remember that science fiction or medical dramas will be pretty tricky!

 

- It's ok to use subtitles! For beginners, Japanese subtitles can help you understand the plot, while you learn new phrases and words. Advanced students should challenge themselves with English subtitles. When you really feel confident, try 10 minutes without any!

 

- Repeat short phrases you hear during conversations. Keep a notebook to write anything down you think might be useful. But! Don't write too much as it's important to listen too!

 

- Break up the film into 20 or 30 mintute parts. This gives your mind a break, and allows you to review any notes you've taken. Don't worry about missing things! The key is to enjoy the film and learn a few new words and phrases.
