Why do so many young Japanese have their own cellular phone?

  • Cellular phones have become an essential tool for young Japanese due to their convenience and versatility.
  • With the ability to contact others from anywhere and access a wealth of information, it's no wonder why so many Japanese carry a 'keitai'.
  • However, the decision to get a cellular phone should ultimately be left to personal preference.

日本に滞在している外国人の学生に次のように聞かれたとします。あなたならどのようにこたえ、どんな理由説明をしますか。 "Why do so many young Japanese have their own cellular phone? Most of my Japanese friends have a 'keitai'. Do I need to get one? It is a very useful tool. We had contacted other people by using telephone in our home or company , or using public telephone in towns. However, nowadays we can contact them by using it wherever you are. Furthermore, it has a lot of information and you can readily look for almost everything by using it. That's why many young Japanese have it. However,you should be free to decide whether you have or don't have it. よろしくお願いします!

高校生の方(受験生?)と仮定してのご参考です。 まず、貴英文(内容は関知せず)について少し。  ・ 全体に it が多すぎでしょう(携帯電話をさしているのはわかりますが、代名詞ばかりでは・・・。また、it は何かを受けてですから、Do I need to get one (= a cellular phone) を受けての回答では it ではなくone です(会話の答えとしては)。 I have A (何か特別のもの) を受けて Can I see it? ですが、ここでは「一台の携帯」ですから one。 ・ We had contacted ... は以前はこうだった・・・の意図とおもいますが、used to あたりを。 ・ it has a lot of information ですが、英語の論理としては、携帯自体が情報があるのではなく、携帯を操作することによってアクセスできる・・・ ・ it, using, telephone が頻出しすぎの感じです。肝心の「携帯電話」という語はなしで・・・ で、貴英文になるべく忠実に上記を考慮すると、 Cellular phones are very useful tools. We used to contact others by using ordinary phones such as home, office or public phones. Nowadays, however, most of us have cell phones because we can contact them wherever we and they are. Also, another main reason is cell phones provide a lot of information. That's why many young Japanese have cell phones. Of course, however, you should be free to decide to have one. くらいではどうでしょうか? 試案: Well, it's all up to you. However, I would recommend you have one. Compared with fixed phones, cell phones have two distinct advantages. One is that we can get in touch with others regardless of where we as well as they are. The other is that we can use them in many ways as if they were PCs -- sending out text messages (携帯メール)and getting access to a lot of information. You should find your cell phone very useful and productive for pleasure and business. もし、試験で貴英文くらいのレベルがかけるのでしたら、いい意味で自信を持っていいと思います。親戚と自分の子供が、東大(法)、慶應(法)、東外大へ入りましたが、どの程度の英語のレベルであったかはよく知ってます(面倒見ました)。大体このレベルでした(英文作成は)。 Hope this helps.





  • 英検2級、英作文の添削

    最近英検2級の勉強を始めたのですが、英作文の書き方が全然わからず、添削できる知り合いが周りにいなくて悩んでいます。19年度第二回の問題を書いたのですが、添削していただきたいです。大学卒業してからかなりブランクがあるので、おそらくめちゃくちゃです。暴言にならない程度にお願いします。 PS:文章が若干脱線気味ですが、文法とかを見てほしいです。 <Question> Today, some young people do not start working for large companies. Do you think number of these people increase the future? Why Japanese young people don’t want to work for large companies? One of the reason, Japanese Companies often occur Suicide of Employees. This is because Young employees were blamed by their boss. They feel much stress and anxious about their fail. Another reason, Japanese Companies income don’t increase. But their working time is increasing every year. And they cannot have a rest. So, Some Japanese young worker think “We are too much spending time to work, but our income isn’t increase. It is no worth for work for large companies”. It is my opinion. This is because young people don't want to work large companies. What should we do protect increase young people like that? This is problem not only our income but also our mental and work environment. I think we must hear everyone’s opinion and realize it as possible as we can. What is important for work? I think it is not income, with Employees’ Satisfaction. So we can protect increase the people who don’t want to work large companies.

    昨日これの賛成意見を書いたのですが(http://okwave.jp/qa/q6882559.html)、反対意見も書いてみました。 添削をお願いいたします。 志望は早稲田政経です。 一橋2003後期 English should be made an official language in japan. I don't agree with this opinion. For one thing, Japanese language, which is called 'Hiragana' or 'Kanji' or 'Katakana' is one of the most important tools to understand Japanese culture. Throughout Japanese history, almost all the Japanese people have used it and almost all the books in Japan are written by it. If we stopped using it, we couldn't read these old books, which may include priceless Japanese history or policy. We don't live ourselves but we are influenced by and connect with ancestors. That is why, that we can't read old books and that we can't understand Japanese policy means that we can't really understand ourselves. To conclude, we have to keep using Japanese language to remain Japanese identity. 日本語は日本の文化を理解するための最も大事な道具のひとつである。 我々は自分たちだけでなく、過去と繋がって日本の精神を受け継いで生きている。 そのため、日本語が読めなくなることで、過去の文献が読めなくなり、日本の歴史や日本の精神を理解できなくなることは自分たち自信を正しく理解出来ないことにもつながる。

    英語でスピーチをする予定があり、原稿を作ったのですが、文法や自然な表現に自信がないので、長文ですが添削をお願いします!^^ Are you happy? Of course there are many happy, enjoyable things. Sports, movies, shopping, and so forth. However, there are also many unhappy, depressive things. Do you surely think you are really happy? Today, the world is facing many serious problems. Discrimination, poverty, war, and so forth. However, we Japanese don’t have such serious problems. We were born in blessed, rich land, Japan. We can eat, buy what we want, and …..live. Then, what are the problems? Big one of the problems Japan facing is a problem of stress. I also suffer from the stress. “One pair of half pants is called pajamas”. “I’m called a Yankee because my hair is gold.” I’ll move on my topic. There are many stress. Human relationships, anxiety, a sense of inferiority, the number of stress is limitless. Because of these stress, many people cannot imagine bright future, only suffer from stress. If we suffer from stress, we cannot concentrate enjoyable things, and enjoy our lives. Stress has influence on not only our mind, but also our body. You can imagine depression as mental disease, difficult breathing, circulatory system and digestive system. To know these effects, perhaps you know how serious stress is. By the way, have you think of any solutions for stress? As I said before, there are many kind of stress, and those causes are also different. But I declare one cause of stress is broadcasting. This linkage is seemed unrealistic. However, media make us imagine there are full of sad accidents, crimes, disease and so on. We live in dark world. Why do we believe that? This is because we watch a number of news, broadcasting sad and dark things. Our brains believe the world we live is dark, not bright unconsciously. Of course there are not only dark ones, but also bright ones, but media focus on dark ones more easily, than bright ones. As I take one example, news about bullying. This news is broadcasted many times, and gathers much attention. That’s why our brains believe the world is full of sadness, hopeless. And we easily feel depression and suffer from stress. Then, how can we save ourselves? How can we release stress? Which way is the best way to solve the problem? Excluding the cause of stress? Or Changing society itself creating stress? Banning broadcasting dark news? All of them are not seemed effective way to solve it. Do we have to endure stress or deceive ourselves? We don’t suffer from stress. I’m OK. I’m OK. I’m happy No way. I refuse to do that. All we have to do is to deceive our brains. We have two simple choices to do. 1st is to look into just bright future. If we do that, our brains recognize only bright future without thinking and we think in a positive way. However, this way is not a perfect way. Some really suffer from stress and cannot look into bright future. Then, I will introduce 2nd way. 2nd is to appreciate 3 things every day and write down them. For example, I live with my aunt and she takes care of me. Now, I write down three things. 1st, “my aunt cooks a meal for me.” Thank to that, I keep my health and eat delicious food. 2nd, “every morning, my aunt sends me to the station.” That’s why I can save my time in the morning and sleep more. 3rd, “on my birthday, my aunt give me 1000 yen.” 1000 yen is not a little money!! To continue this, your brains will believe there are full of many happy, bright, fine things. We live in a happy world. Some of you think why this is beneficial for you? Yes. I’ll explain it. By getting this thought, positive way to look into your future, you suffer from less and less stress, and are released from stress. This is totally enough. And, the effect is not only reducing stress. Please don’t be surprised. By released from stress, your brains work well as 30%. You will not have trouble to studying. You will be able to get degree more easily. Good! If you got this thought, your future would be bright. I hope you will get bright future.

I think there are two advantages. We can keep in touch with my friends by using SNS in any time. If I have forgotten what I have to do for my homework, I can ask my friends to teach me about it. Moreover we can communicate with my friends who live far away. This is the first advantage. The second advantage is that we can know the world conditions. I often enjoy watching the world funny animation and looking for the world news in SNS. Those who are interested in the world can be easy to know other countries information. I think there are more advantages than disadvantages to using SNS. 間違いが多いかもしれませんかご指摘お願いします。

However, considering what works made by popular writers are sold well, we cannot judge that they have been unwilling to do it. they are only absorbed in what is interesting for them. だらだらと書いてしました、回答よろしくおねがいします。

    問題  Write your answer in English giving at least two reasons why you agree or disagree with it. Space exploration is a waste of money. 答え    I think space exploration is a waste of money. You may say that there are potential benefits which you will obtain in exploring it. However, it is only about 50years since human beings got tp the surface of the moon, so it is seemed to me that it will take great time, therefore, it will cost too much money until we surely make a great success exploring it. Also,we have many problems which we should pay money for, such as solving environmental problem, the poverty in developing countries. These problems must be solved as early as possible. In my conclusion, we pay money for something else rather than the unreliable projects.
