Diary October 20th 2020 - fast speed English

When I saw the following video for the first time a few years ago, I thought these two women's speaking speed was so fast. And being able to catch up with their speaking speed and understand their English became one of my goals in English practice. And I watched this video again today after one year interval or so, their talking speed is still quick to me, however, now I can somehow understand what they say in this interview. My English listening comprehension skill seems to have improved a little bit in these two years or so. Getting used to fast English talk is an important priority in my language practice.

上記のビデオは女性格闘家 ミーシャ・テイトのインタビューですが、2年程前にこのビデオを見た時の印象は、ミーシャもインタビュアーのケイリン・ブライアントも英語を話すスピードがとても速いな、ということ。それ以来、これくらいのスピードの英語に慣れるということが目標の一つになりました。本日、久しぶりにこのビデオを見ての感想は「2年前よりもリスニングの理解度がほんの少しだけ改善したかな?」ということ。正直なところ、今でもこのインタビューで話している内容を完全には聞き取れませんが、以前よりは言葉や表現を拾えるようになってきている気がします。更なる改善を目指して頑張ります。

Miesha refers to " boundaries " in her videos many times. So to speak, uniquess and originality would be very important matter to her.

Although this is quite natural, your foreign language skills improve in proportion to the amount you practiced and were exposed to that language. Thus, I need to increase the total amount of my English practice more.

Diary October 11th 2020

Vowels are dominant in Japanese language, especially in writing and in pronunciation, whereas English is a consonant dominant language. And this is the biggest reason why Japanese people have difficulty in listening comprehension in English, I guess. So, how can I close this gap between the two different languages ? In other words, how can I improve my listening comprehensin skills in English especially in consonants ?

Diary October 8th 2020 ‐ necessity to improve my pronunciation

Recently, my regular online language tutors are busy and unavailable, so, I had a lesson with a new tutor yesterday. She is from Bosnia and currently living in Dubai and her primary job is flight attendant of international lines. I read a textbook of wellness coaching by paragraph by paragraph in turn with her. And, the following is a feedback note from her. 

オンライン英会話、馴染みの先生達のレッスンの予約が最近なかなか取れないので、その都度予約可能な先生達の中から自分の要望や好みになるべく近い講師を選んでレッスンを受けるような状況が続いています。昨日担当して下さったのはボスニアの先生ですがドバイに住んでいて、本業は国際線のスチュワーデスだという。コロナの影響でスチュワーデスの仕事があまりないのでオンラインで英語を教えているらしい。ウェルネス・コーチングのテキストを一段落づつ交代で読むレッスンをしたのですが、以下はレッスン後にこの先生からいただいたフィードバックメモ。

" I learned something new today form your profession. Keep practicing and reading out loud, looking forward to seeing you improve your pronunciation "
「今日のレッスンではあなたの専門分野から新たな事を学びました。音読する練習を続けて下さい。あなたの発音が改善していく過程を見るのを楽しみにしています」

Of course I know that my English pnonunciation has some typical Japanese English like accent, but the feedback from her opened my eyes to further improve my pronunciation. In her standard, my English pronunciation is still unnatural and there is much room for improvement, I guess.
僕の英語の発音に典型的な日本人英語の発音がまだ残っていることは十分認識していますが、国際線のスチュワーデスとして世界中を飛び回っている人の耳からすると、やはり、僕の英語の発音はまだまだ不自然で改善の余地が多いのだと思います。

As you can see in this video, her English is very good and she is very charming, so, booking her lessons is very competitive, I'm looking forward to practicing with her in the future as well.

この先生です。ビデオではわかりにくいかもしれませんが、ネイティブとさほど変わらない英語を話します。人気講師のようで次回はいつ予約が取れるかわかりませんが、この先生ともまた練習したいと思います。

I learned sport psychology and behavior modification coaching, aka wellness coaching, in my graduate school, but psychological aspect of humans are so profound, and my knowledge and understanding are only rudimentary, thus, I would like to further learn these aspects in health, fitness, and life itself in some way.
学校でスポーツ心理学や健康関連の行動変容心理学(ウェルネス・コーチング)を専攻し、こういった側面を学んだのですが、人間の心理は複雑で、まだまだ自分の知識や理解が不足しています。
