There are Some Languages to Learn.

I started helping foreigners learn Japanese as a volunteer a few years ago. They have a variety of purposes to stay in Japan and they are hardworking. Every time I help them, their enthusiasm tells me how interesting it is to learn languages.
I help them, at the same time, I learn some phrases in their languages such as Chinese, Korean, Portuguese and so forth.
It might be a chance to start learning other languages. I know, of course, my English has yet to reach the native level, but I'm thinking of making a step forward. ;)

Schmoozing is in My DNA.

This is one of the things that I make a point of doing: Speaking English.

Some know I'm an English teacher and use English during my on-duty and off-duty hours. I'm lucky enough to use English every day and my brain is often confused whether Japanese or English is required. Having said that, I need to practice speaking and learn more to become a native-level speaker. Unless I stay abroad, I need to make the environment I use only English in Japan.

Last Wednesday, I took part in an English workshop. Luckily or unluckily, there were three of us on that day. I tried to talk with the other participants in English to the fullest. We caught up on each other and ended up carrying over the article we had prepared to the next meeting because of a lack of time.

The following day, I visited an English teacher who is from England to chat over coffee. Luckily, there wasn't no other visitor and I monopolized the teacher! hehe.

Yesterday, I skyped with one of my friends in America. We help each other with the languages we've learned. Whenever I have questions, he gives me a quick response, and vice versa.
We enjoyed skyping a whole lot.

It might sound a little bit weird to others, but I'm trying to be immersed in English as much as possible. XD
