Diary April 29th 2022

My cummulative trainig hours in my current online language school have reached 40.000 minutes (25 minute lesson × 1.600 sessions). However, I'm not sure whether my English skills have largely improved compared to when my cummulative hours reached 30.000 minutes. Of course, I don't feel a big inconveniene in communication through English, but my language skills are still far from satisfactory level. Some big change might be necessary for further improvement. That would be one's determination to live in English environment.

現在練習しているオンライン英会話スクールでの累計レッスン時間が40.000分に達した。25分のレッスンを1.600回行ったことになる。が、正直なところ、累計練習時間が30.000分に達した頃と較べて、自分の英語力に大きな進歩があるか?というと、正直なところ、やや停滞している・もしくは、伸びがすごくゆっくりになってきているように感じる。

もちろん、英語で海外の人とコミュニケーションするのに、大きな問題はない。既に10年以上前に英検1級・TOEIC レベルA・通訳案内士を取得し、その後、米国の大学院でも学んだ(願書を出す際にTOEFL・ibtも受験)でも、僕の英語力は、英語が母国語の人達や、英語が公用語の人達と比較すると、まだまだ及ばない。ここから更に飛躍するには、今まで通りの継続的な訓練はもちろんのこと、何か変化が必要かもしれない。

As long as you hope a romance with a person in a different culture/country from yours, you need a determination to overcome various diffrences in cultures, customs, ways of thinking and perspectives ... etc, however, what is most important would be a belief that it is achievable and attainable.
Don't be negative, Be positive and forward looking !

You don't need to be a special outstanding person, just being for her and accepting her as she is would be important, however, horning yourself and pursuing an excellence in your chosen area is also important in life.

unconditional support - April 15th 2022

Although cultures and values are various from person to person, no matter what happens between the two, unconditional support and regard would be important in global human relationships.

Diary April 12th 2022

To believe one's values, and to accept culture and values of your partner. The both are important and necessary. I need to learn about compassion, consistency, global perspective, and positive reframing.

自分の価値観に忠実であること、相手の価値観や文化を受け入れること、両方が必要。特に僕が求めるもの・学ぶべきものは、思いやり、一貫性、地球規模の視野、そして困難な状況でもいかに可能な限りポジティブな見方に転換するか?ということ。
