Importance of diaphragm in English - January 21st 2024

In today's online Englisg practice, I remembered a very important point, that is ... when you speak/read aloud English, making sound/voice through your stomach and diaphragm is essential. If you make sound/voice only through your throat, it is detrimental to throat health, in other words, it hurts your vocal cord and throat.

In order to correctly use abs and diaphragm, body position and posture when speaking would also need to be considered.

Rock hard commitmment - January 19th 2024

As a matter of fact, English and Japanese are completely different languages each other. There are hardly any common points in grammar, word order, and pronunciation in these two languages.

What I mean by that is ... if you are a Japanese who wants to master English, or an English native who wants to learn Japanese language, a solid determination to learn is essential. Sometimes, it may require some kind of sacrifice, but that kind of devotion is an important success factor, I believe.

Usage of " less " - January 12th 2024

In order to further brush up my English language skills, I need to get familiar with the usage of " less " in my writing and speaking, because  equivalent concept as " less " doesn't exist in Japanese language. Thus, I'll need to use " less " in my English practice many many times to make " less " a part of my vocabulary.

example
less expensive, less important

Amazingly excellent duty of Japan Airlines crews - January 2nd 2024

On January 2nd 2024, an unexpected tragic airplane crush happend in Tokyo Haneda Airport in Japan.
A passenger jet of Japan Airlines and an airplane of Japan Coastguad Agency collided on a runway in the airport. The plane of the coast guard was about to take off for delivering aid supplies to the earhquake affected areas ; the earthquake happened in the previous day. Most crews of the coastguad plane lost their lives, and I would like to hope their souls rest in peace.

Crew members of the Japan Airlines did an amazingly excellent job to have had all passengers and crews evacuated before the jet was engulfed in a flame. Courageous duty of Japan Airlines crews should be remembered in the future as well.

Star - appreciation to the stars that watch over me.

It is the final day of the year 2023.
To me, this year was a year of upheavals - my mother passed away in April, her elder brother passed away in October, and my good old friend Ken-Ken suddenly passed away on December 13th.
I wanna say " Thank you " to these people.
Especially I miss my mother so much.

I hope the year 2024 will be a good year to all of you.

2023年も本日が最終日。
今年は色々なことがあありました。

母がいなくてとても寂しいですが、これらの人々に「ありがとう」を伝えたいと思います。

2024年が皆様にとって、良い年でありますように。

The star that watches over me

The year 2023 is coming to its end, and I'm reflecting on various things that happened this year.
The biggest change in this year was that my mother has become a star in the sky. I miss her so much, but she is always in my mind and her spirit lives on.

Common points between Miesha Tate and Takuma Sato - December 26th 2023

The reason why Takuma Sato and Miesha Tate are so captivating to me is ... they have their philosophy in their profession and life itself. In addition, their friendliness, gentleness, humbleness, boldness and solid determination attract people's mind, I guess. To me, Takuma and Miesha are a kind of role model in life, work, and English language learning.
I hope their further success, safety, and evolution on the racing circuit, and octogon respectively.

Switching one's dominant language - December 25th 2023

A process I'm doing currently is switching my dominant language from Japanese to English by watching interview videos of female MMA fighter Miesha Tate and making videos of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, plus by writing mails to my friends.

As long as you live in Japan, your dominant language is basically Japanese as a matter of fact. Thus, changing this linguistic envoronment requires a solid determination. It is easy to say, but not so easy to do in your every day life. Consistent efforts is a key for progression.

What is future made up of ? - December 21st 2023

Past, Present, and Future are connected seamlessly.
However, I don't want to look back the past excessively.
Past is irreversible.
Future will be made up of one's vision, efforts for it, interactions with people, and several uncontrollable factors such as fate.
I would like to look at future in forward looking ways.

Diary - December 20th 2023

This is an encouraging message to myself.

If you would like to further improve your English language skills, you need to become a kind of compulsive learner. Especially, linguistic distance between my mother tongue Japanese and English is extremely far, it means you need a solid determination to learn the foreign language. Way to the mastery is not so easy as many people might think. Devotion and commitmment are necessary.

Feel this moment

This is one of my current favorite songs.
Maybe, people in their 50's and 40's remember A-ha's hit song " Take on me "
This is a kind of revival & remixed version of Take on me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jL0jHRjdJCk

もう10年前位の曲ですが、最近、気に入って聴いています。
A-ha の ヒット曲 " Take on me " を覚えている人も多いと思いますが
クリスティーナ・アギレラによるリバイバル&リミックス版みたいなものです。

Diary - December 7th 2023

Currently I'm reading a textbook on sports science research.
This textbook is absolutely necessary for my future in order to increase my understanding about research statistics and how to interpret research data.
What is written in this book is largely different from books about fitness exercise and physiology ... etc. However, I'm gonna tackle this book patiently. Also, reading this book becomes a good training for reinforcing my English vocabulary.

Keep on learning !

Diary - December 6th 2023

In order to raise my current English level one step higher, I'll need to increase amount of reading aloud. Because reading aloud can be a good practice for pnonunciation, also, listening to one's reading can become a good listening training as well. And by reading a lot of English, it will expand one's vocabulary and expressions.

Never stop learning !

For further improvement - November 14th 2023

In order to take my English language skills to one more step higher level, further improvement of pronunciation and listening comprehension would be necessary. So, I'm watching a lot of Youtube videos lately.

As I always say, for switching your dominant from one's mother tongue to your target language, write something in that language as much as possible is an inevitable learning process.

Never stop learning !
