Immerse yourself in an English environment. That would be one of the best ways to switch one's dominant language in your thought process into English.

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.


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 !
