No More English!



It was just a few weeks ago when I said I was perfectly ready to take one of the prestigious English examinations held in Japan, but that decision seems to get waning again. I hate myself to be unsettled, but it cannot be helped. It doesn't mean that I want to say "No more English!" here. It's just that I cannot cross other two languages off.

As for Chinese, I have a good friend in Taiwan. She has a great command of Japanese and shows an insatiable interest in Japanese culture. I've learned a lot from her so far, and I'm able to study Chinese because of her. She wakes up early every Friday in order to just meet me on the Net! How wonderful it would be to chat with her in Chinese! She is friendly, kind and ardent. I might be able to teach Japanese culture more if I can get my Chinese over all right.
I also have a nice friend in Korean. She can speak Japanese like a native speaker of Japanese, and she is willing to help me study Korean all the time. I still have trouble expressing my feelings in Korean, but we have no problem because of her great Japanese skills. I'll be definitely able to improve my Korean skills with her. It's not just that between us. I like talking to her very much even when we're speaking Japanese becasue she is cute, affable and considerate.

If I stop studying two languagese completely, I wouldn't be able to meet them. It's unbearable! Why do we study a foreign language in the first place? Isn't it because we hope to communicate with people? As long as I have friends, I cannot give up studying their native languages!

I've just found a Korean textbook. Oh, you don't have to say "Again???" or "Another one???" to me. I know myself. It just looks very intriguing to me.

Can't I make without this? It seems to me that I still have a tendency to fall into temptation easily...

Re: OMG!!!

Hi Ryoko san! I'm very glad to know that I succeeded in making you surprised! ^^ The title did work well to catch your attention, didn't it???
I admire you a lot simply because you have a will whenever you are, whatever you do. You've devoted energies to your success. You're a real self-made woman! I also like your way of thinking. Your comments are always precise and to the point, of, no, I could go on and on! My daughter shows a great interest in leaning English, so I wish you could be a langmark for her. "You can do it if you wish." That can be a great lesson for my daugher, and yes, her brotehr with less interest in English! ^^

OMG!!!

OMG!!! You shocked me with the title!! I'm glad that you are NOT saying "No more English!" for real! ;) I agree that the big part of learning languages is so that we can communicate with people from other countries. I also have friends from Korea, Taiwan, and other countries but they all speak either English or Japanese that I haven't been compelled to learn their languages. I think it's great that you are a talented and gifted language learner! Keep up the good work!!
