  • 英検面接の前にやったこと
  • 英検面接日が迫って来ました。筆記試験合格発表から二次試験日までは、あまり時間的な余裕がありません。何をどう準備すればいいのか、効率的な方法はあるのかないのか、私もあれこれ迷いました。結果的に「やってよかった」対策を、ご紹介いたします。1) 英作文の練習をする私は1次試験の前には英作文の練習は全くしていませんでした。語彙と読解に手間取って、それどころではなかったので...。ですが、合格発表後は英作文を1 [続きを読む]

  • 新TOEIC練習用ノート
  • I always used my notebooks while working on TOEIC questions, but it was very confusing especially when I checked my answers. I got
    overwhelmed among its numbers and alphabets on a page, and sometimes I ended up having a problem to tell where I was in 200 ques
    tions. I could've used my printer to make a copy of TOEIC textbooks' answer sheets, but its copy function was amazingly

  • 英検1級 面接「分野別得点表」 
  • 2016年度第2回、英検1級面接試験の詳しい結果がでました。データの内容については、私も正直よくわかっていないのですが、「+1」ということは、ギリギリの合格です。スピーチが論理的でなかったんだろうな...。文法ミスがあったのかな...。発音でひっかかったのかな...。いろいろ考えました。面接が終わった後は、ホッとしたと同時に、ほんの少し手応えも感じていました。その手応えが勘違いだったのかもしれないと思うと、 [続きを読む]
  • 英検1級 不合格A 
  • 2014年第3回、初受験の分野別得点表です。受験時の感覚が、そのまま得点に現れる結果になりました。まず、語彙。意味も読み方も不確かな単語がまだまだ多くあるものの、受験時は「わからない単語ばかりではなくなった」印象がありました。スキマ時間に単語帳を開いたり、CDを聞いたりしていたのが良かったようです。なんとか合格者平均に達していました。次に、読解。最初の数問までは「読めているかもしれない!」とわくわ [続きを読む]

  • Day 9 Draft
  • How can Japan improve its international image?key words: presentation skills, international aid, immigrantI believe that Japan has
    played an important role in the world, but somehow its efforts are not that recognized by other nations. I'd like to point o
    ut three factors to concern.First, Japan is not good at expressing itself. It is said that Japanese people are not good at showing
    off their stro [続きを読む]
  • Day 8 Draft
  • What can be done to help solve the worldwide fresh water shortage?I hardly think about the worldwide fresh water shortage, and tha
    t's simply because Japan is full with fresh water. But it doesn't mean that Japanese people don't have to think abo
    ut the worldwide problem. I'd like to talk about three steps that can be a solution.First, we have to stop deforestation. It&
    apos;s well known that forests gene [続きを読む]
  • Day 7 Draft
  • In what ways has the Internet made young people more vulnerable?Everybody knows that the Internet is indispensble and useful today
    , yet we shouldn't forget that it has a negative impact especially on young people. I'd like to talk about it with two a
    spects. First, young people depend on the Internet too much. It's hard to find a single person without a celler phone these d
    ays, and young people see [続きを読む]
  • Day 6 Draft
  • Should the Japan Self-Defence Forces join international peacekeeping operations?I think the Japan Self-Defence Forces has already
    joined international peacekeeping operations well enough, therefore my answer to this question is "No." They don't
    have to step it into further, I think. I'll share two reasons I have.First, if they expand their international peacekeeping o
    perations, it means their live [続きを読む]
  • Day 5 Draft
  • Does history show that people are becoming more civilized?In some ways, I can say that we're becoming more civilized. Take me
    dical care, for example. We live a long life today, and cancers are becoming curable disease. My mother was diagnosed with colon
    cancer two years ago, and at first the doctor said that her cancer was in its terminal stage. Fortunately, thorough examinations r
    evealed that he [続きを読む]
  • Halloween Craft
  • I'm clumsy with hands, so it takes time deciding what to do for a Halloween Week Class. I surfed the Net and found some great
    ideas to make little students happy. I'll put a few pictures as a reminder.I'm going to add my students' handprint
    on each sheet. Children are supposed to draw a ghost's face on their own handprints. Because of handprints, these craft can
    be a memento for parents.This is fo [続きを読む]
  • Day 4 Draft
  • Does the media invade the lives of public figures too much?I'm opposed to the idea that the media invades the lives of public
    figures too much. I have two reasons for this.First, I personally don't know much about a public figure's perfonal life
    , such as their family's names, their home addresses, their phone numbers, their alma maters and so on. I watch TV every day
    and read articles on the Inter [続きを読む]
  • Draft 5
  • Should more be done to help the working poor?Yes, I'm for the idea that we should do something to help the working poor. I ha
    ve three reasons for this.Firstly, helping the working poor will lead to the prosperity of our country. Nobody is goofing off and
    complaining about their incomes. What's more, much revenue from taxes can be expected. The government doesn't need to sq
    ueeze the money for aidin [続きを読む]

  • Is the increasing number of allergy sufferers a cause for concern?Today, it's not unusual to see a child who suffers allergy,
    and I'm very concerned about the increasing number of allergy sufferes. I'd like to point out the reasons why I feel th
    is way.First of all, the big number of allergy sufferers shows that our environment has become unsuitable for us to survive. Aller
    gic reactions are counter [続きを読む]
  • Draft 3
  • Should there be more decentralization of government?I'm for decentralization of government for the following three reasons.Fi
    rst, it's a great way to avoid confusion caused by earthquakes, tsunami, eruption, landslide and so on. These days, Japan is
    unstable because of unpredictable natural disasters. Once a city is attacked, its function is paralyzed. If it happens to a capita
    l city, the country [続きを読む]
  • Draft 2
  • Is the extinction of some plant and animal species inevitable?It's sad to say, but I believe that the extinction of some plan
    t and animal species inevitable. I have two reasons for this.First, our environment is deemed to change, and any living things hav
    e a limited time. Climate and landform are unstable, and species are supposed to die if they fail to adjust themselves to a new en
    vironment. Ever [続きを読む]
