Write More

Thank to some progresses especially on the net, I'm able to learn other lauguages on some web sites. "Lang-8", the kind of language-exchange service on the net, is now one of the famous sites for Englsh learners, I suppose. If you post your journal on it in Englsh, some English speakers will read and also check its grammar and correct it. Meanwhile, if you are a Japanese and would like to support someone, you may read some journals written in Japanese and correct them. When I first found this service at this time of last year, I really appreciated it and posted some journals. Almost all of my journals were checked and some readers kindly left enjoyable comments. Some English speaker who has been learning Japanese offered me to do language exchange using Skipe, but it seems a little inconvenient because of the time difference. I'm not a keen writer on that site and actually, was absent for long period of time, I started posting some journals again. but... as I checked my journals, no comment left there. The reasons I come up with are: 1)my journals are a little too long, 2)there is no mistake, 3)boring. Anyway, it made me decide to write in Englsh without someone's support, so I opened the new account for the blog to write.
And Of course, a blogospherical debate casted by some blogger pushing us for writing journals only in Englsh made me to step forward. hahaha

Drink, Or Get Drunk

ccBig, famous fire works were held here in Fukuoka last night. I often run around the park where the event was held, and this morining, I found some hideous stuff near there. Grrrrrrr, what the hell is that stinky stuff?????? It was a nice, fresh morning until I found that in the morning 6:30am. I tried to ignore the sight, but that scene sweeps in my mind every single step I take. Don't drink too much, you guys. That's why I don't have appetite today. To change the subject, look at this photo with a fresh drink. I stopped at a Starbucks cafe and orderd this nice yellow frappetino to refresh my feeling. Cuuuuute!! This cute-freshy-lemony drink uplifts my feeling a bit.

As I felt a little better, I went back home and wrote this journal. Meanwhile, I remember my younger days in University that I sometimes drunk too much and caused some troubles. Honestly, once my conscious became totally out of control and I was carried to the hospital by an ambulance. That's a bitter, old memory....

Catch A Wave

Since I had graduated from high school and came to Fukuoka to go to university, I lived on my own before I get married. As you may imagine, I was not good at cooking and other household chores. So when I found the advertisement of a cooking school, I applied for it. Before joining it, I felt a little nervous due to my poor cooking skill, but actually, most of the students there seemed beginner level, and another thing, some were really awkward. lol
In addition to that school, I joined some workshops or schools such as a financial seminar, a speeching seminar, a PC course, and others. Some of those participants are already highly skilled, and they all are very voracious to acquire something new more and more. Their keen attitude toward leaning opportunities makes me uplift, and I'm able to learn many things from them. That's why I sometimes check the information for some seminars to attend.

BTW,when I first took a course provided by ALC(it probably was aimed at TOEIC 730), a free ticket was included for seminars they held.I wanted to join some, however, I couldn't apply for them because I didn't have any confidence in my English. About a decade has passed since then, and now ALC seldom offers those seminars here in Fukuoka. Of course there are various, captivating seminars held in Tokyo or Osaka, but here in Kyushu, there aren't so many opportunities. So, what I want to say is, you should catch the opportunity at hand, or you'll miss it and it'll never come again.

Move Forward

Having written some articles everyday since I opened this blog, I've found that there is a lot of room for improvement of my English writing skill but I don't know how to brush it up. Almost the same expressions appear on this blog again and again, and it seems a bit boring. Of course I know that "writing a lot" is the only and the most important way to improve, but I need some help to write more effectively. There are some useful SNS like Lang-8, facebook, and Twitter provided for free, but now I want some proficient teachers to check my writings though it may cost a bit. That's why now I'm gathering information about some service for correcting English writing. There are some sites providing that service, and now I'm very curious about one of the famous service named "Eigo-Bin", which is relatively inexpensive. It first appeared a couple years ago and there were some advertisements posted in some magazines such as NHK-language textbooks, and I once kicked it around. However, I found Lang-8 a moment later and it seemed good enough for me at that time.

Of course I need essay-practice for STEP(Eiken)-1st grade, but Eigo-bin provides some more practices such as business-writing, book-review and other topics to write. Plus, this professional service will provides me some more useful, colourful expressions to use. It also give me a book written in English at every 100 letters or essays I write. It seems a bit tough to write 100 journals a month, but it can be a good motivation to write more and I'll be pleased if many people read and response them. To write more effectively and variedly, using this service may be one of the good options to choose. Has anyone experienced this program?

Come on! Join in!

I mentioned EIGOBIN yesterday and honestly, I joined it for one-week-trial after I wrote that article, and then, contracted it on the same day!! It seems fun and many members write letters, diaries, and essays. Some of the top members write really, really many essays, so I was so astonished to see their volume of writings. How many words do they write a day? Probably, some TOP members write two thousands or more words a day! How studious they are! To see their attitude, I feel some strong emotion toward English spread in my mind. I'll write more and more, then I'll make some of my journals corrected at EIGOBIN and show you the corrected ones here. As the instructor of EIGOBIN says their way of correction may be a little strict, so there may be a lot of corrections on my writings. Some members translate an article in newspapers written in Japanese into English, so they must already be highly skilled. Within an hour since I registered, I received the first mail from a member. She says that she studies English and is preparing for studying abroad.
I'll write a essay for the STEP test and post it for correction during this week. I've never had my EIKEN-essay corrected before, so I'll see what's wrong with my essays. Of course I once studied some English schools and submitted journals and essays to them, so I somewhat know what my weakness is.
I haven't submitted my journal for correction at EIGOBIN, but I've written some and will choose which one to be corrected. I really look forward to it.
