Enjoy English Conversations !

[2010/11/18 13:51.29 | Comments(4)]

I have been taking private English conversation lessons since May this year.

In the past, I had to ask an interpreter to handle translations on business,
but recently, opportunities of communicating with foreign companies by e-mail
and video conference have increased, so I started to wish to become a good English speaker.

My teacher’s name is Ms.Yuri Hirayama.
Ms.Fujisawa, my friend, introduced Yuri-san to me.
Fujisawa-san got 750 TOEIC score after taking Yuri-san’s lessons about 3 years.

I take her lesson every Thursday for an hour in our office.
When I started the lesson, I could not understand her English conversation and
I was in trouble.
But in the lesson, I mainly studied making presentations and writing English e-mail
on business and I gradually became able to make some sentences by using
a dictionary.
Yuri-san taught me that it is very important to write English sentences on the notebook in addition to speaking.
Yuri-san is a strict teacher for me, and she always gives me a lot of homework,
so I can not skip studying English at home either.

Also after learning the English conversations, even when a foreigner talked to me,
I never escaped the situation. Rather, I came to think that I wanted to speak English with foreigners.

I took TOEIC last month, and I found out that I had poor vocabulary, idioms and
reading comprehension.
I think I have to study English much harder.

By the way, Yuri-san and her husband are going to have their wedding party
on Nov.21.
Her husband is her student and a nice person.
I enjoyed dinner with them last month.
I will join their “Niji-kai”, the second party of wedding.

Congratulations, Yuri-san and Hirayama-san !
   
   
   
※ Here are Yuri-san’s comments

Kitada-san has made great efforts and impressive progress in English !
He has such creative ideas, solid opinions, and unique personality
that he can develop his English conversations very well.
In addition, he is eager to speak with foreign people and use English
at work. I admire his serious attiude and challenging spirit.
I wish him good luck on his business and English !

Excellent!
It’s important for you to do things with a sincere effort. Even if you confront a problem, keep on trying.
That will lead you to success.
