神戸大学 Sirin

In some ways speaking is the most difficult language skill. Every time you speak you have to do many different things but you have very little time to do them. Imagine, for example, that the teacher has asked you a question in class. Here is a list of the things you have to do when giving an answer.

You have to:

understand the question

think what answer you want to give

find the words that you need

make sure the grammar you use is correct

try to get your pronunciation and intonation right.

To make things more difficult, you have to do all this with everyone else in the class looking at you and listening to you! It's no surprise that some students don't talk at all for a while when they first come to school. So, please practice, practice, practice! Practice makes you perfect!

話すというのは、最も困難な言語のスキルです。 あなたは話すたびに、いろいろなことを行う必要がありますが、それらを行うための時間はほとんどありません。 例えば、先生があなたにクラスで質問をしたと想像してみてください。 これは、あなたが答える時にしなければならないことです。


• 質問を理解し、

• 答えは何かを考えます。

• 必要な単語を見つけて、

• 使用する文法が正しいことを確認し、

• 発音とイントネーションが正しいか確認しようとします。

さらに困難なのは、クラスの皆があなたに注目し、耳を傾けている中で、このすべてを行う必要があることです! 学生が最初に学校に来たときに、しばらくはまったく話さないことも驚きではありません。ですから、練習、練習、そして練習して下さい!練習はあなたを完璧にします!

早稲田大学 Tarahassel

Do not worry about making mistakes! Everyone who speaks makes mistakes. Even native speakers make mistakes when they talk, because speaking is a complicated skill. It doesn't matter if your spoken English is not perfect. What is important is that you can communicate what you want to say

ミスを心配してはいけません! 話す誰もがミスをします。 ネイティブスピーカーでも間違いを犯します。なぜなら、話すというのは、複雑なスキルなのですから。 あなたが話す英語が完璧かどうかは関係ありません。 重要なことは、あなたが言いたいことを伝えることができるということです。

The long summer vacation is a good time for you to work on improving your English. In fact, if you do nothing at all in the summer, you may find it difficult at the start of the new school year. It is particularly useful if you can concentrate on the aspects of your English where you are not so strong.

長い夏休みはあなたの英語を向上させるための良い時間です。 実際、夏に全く何もしないなら、新学期が始まるとき、上達は難しいと思うかもしれません。あなたがそれほど強くはない自分の英語の側面に集中することができるなら特に役に立ちます。

大阪教育大学 Silvia

夏に行うための最善のものは、読書です。 英語で読むことは、語彙を増やしあなたのスペルを向上させ、文法を学ぶのを助け、そして優れた書き手にすることができます。

Probably the best thing to do in the summer is: READING. Reading in English can increase your vocabulary, improve your spelling, help you learn grammar, and make you a better writer.


早稲田大学 Ingling

I've been teaching Chinese for years. To most people, speaking is the most difficult part when learning a foreign language. Although everyone knows that the best way to speak a language fluently is to practice speaking as much as possible, not many people can do this.


早稲田大学 Penway

Learners often hesitate to speak because they are afraid of pronouncing the words wrongly. In fact it is very difficult to correct a mistake in pronunciation later if you don't pay attention to it from the start. The advice is that you should try to pronounce the words right from the very first lessons. Be patient when pronouncing new words. If you make a constant mistake in pronunciation, you should record the right pronunciation of that word and listen over and over again so that you will be familiar with it.

What is the best way to learn grammar? You can learn the rules of a game by simply playing the game. You will certainly make mistakes; you may even get hurt. Eventually, however, you will know how to play. Of course, the rules of a language are very much more complicated than the rules of any game, but in fact this is exactly how you learned your own language. Nobody taught you the rules of your mother tongue as you were growing up but now you never make a grammar mistake.

文法を習得する最良の方法は何でしょう? ゲームのルールは、単にゲームをプレイして学ぶことができます。 確かにミスを犯すでしょうし、さらに傷つくこともあります。 でも結局はゲームの仕方を知るでしょう。 もちろん、言語の規則はどんなゲームのルールよりもはるかに複雑ですが、これはまさにあなたが自身の言語を学んだ方法なのです。 誰もあなたが育った母国語のルールを教えてくれませんでしたが、今、あなたは文法の間違いを犯すことはありません。

東北大学 Paulo

It is possible to learn a second language in natural way, if you have enough time and you live in the right place. However most people learning a new language do not have so much time and such an ideal situation; So what is the best way to learn English grammar? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to the question. There are just as many different opinions about teaching grammar as there are about learning grammar. Many teachers believe in the importance of grammar lessons devoted to a study of language rules and lots of practice exercises. Other teachers feel that grammar is best learned by doing different language activities without focusing so directly on the rules. Whatever your opinion about grammar, and whichever is the way you are taught, Be aware of grammar. Think about grammar.

あなたに十分な時間があり、適切な場所に住んでいるなら、自然な形で第二言語を習得することが可能です。しかし新しい言語を学ぶ多くの人はそう多くの時間とそのような理想的な状況を持っていません。それでは、英語の文法を習得する最良の方法は何でしょうか? 残念ながら、質問に対する簡単な答えはありません。 文法を学ぶことと同じように、文法を教えるのにも、多くの異なる意見があります。 多くの教師は、言語の規則と多くの練習問題に専念し、文法授業の重要性を信じています。 また別の教師陣は規則に対して多大な直接の注目はせずに、異なる言語活動を行うことにより、最も文法が学習されると感じています。 文法に関するあなたの見解がどうであれ、あなたがどちらの方法を教えられたにせよ、文法に注意ををし、文法を考えて下さい。


一ツ橋大学 Polony

Grammar is an aspect of language about which learners have different opinions. Some learners are very interested in finding out or learning grammar rules and doing lots of grammar exercises. Others hate grammar and think it is the most boring part of learning a new language. Whatever opinion you have, however, you cannot escape from grammar; it is in every sentence you read or write, speak or hear. Grammar is simply the word for the rules that people follow when they use a language.



神戸大学 Elizabeth

We need English rules in the same way as we need the rules in a game. If there are no rules, or if everybody follows their own rules, the game would soon break down. It's the same with language; without rules we would not be able to communicate with other people.

Learning vocabulary is a very important part of learning a language. The more words you know, the more you will be able to understand what you hear and read; and the better you will be able to say what you want to when speaking or writing.

語彙学習は、言語学習の非常に重要な部分です。 あなたが多くの単語を知れば知るほど、より聞いて、読んで理解できるようになり、あなたが話すとき、または書くときによりよく言いたいことを言ったり、書くことができるようになります。

Every day you hear or read many new English words. You also find them in your dictionary when you are translating from your own language. You can't possibly learn all these new words, so your first problem is to decide which ones to concentrate on.

毎日多くの新しい英単語を聞いたり、読んだりしください。 また、あなたの母語から翻訳しているときでも、自分のの辞書でそれを見つけるでしょう。 おそらく、これらすべての新しい単語を習得することはできませんが、あなたの最初の問題は、どういう単語に集中するかを決めることです。

If you watch an American movie with English audio and English subtitles your English skills will improve very quickly. When you listen to English and read English at the same time it re-enforces the English vocabulary, grammar and even slang in your brain.

If you live in a country that doesn't speak English as its first language, it's still possible to get English language newspapers and, in most places now, they're pretty cheap. Buy an English language newspaper at least once a week and read a few of the articles.

Native English speakers will speak quickly and may use words and phrases that you don't normally learn in the classroom. Through watching television shows, you can pick up on these words. Start by watching them with subtitles in your native language, then try watching again without the subtitles.

Create flash cards that are relevant to the type of English that you wish to learn.

Review the cards on a daily basis. This is a good way to build your vocabulary words.
