オンライン英会話がテーマの自由英作文です(前半) I wonder how other people study English conversation. There are many schools out there where learners can speak to native English speakers and it is definitely one of the best ways to go learning there. However, as is often the case, they cost us much money, and of course, we couldn't improve our English conversation only by going there. Therefore it might be difficult for ordinary people to go there continuously until they learn enough. 途中のカンマの多い長い文はこれでもいいのでしょうか? よろしくおねがいします。

ネイティブは、学会などで英語論文などを発表するような目的以外は、"understandable"な書き方である限り、日本人の作った英文にあれやこれやとやる気をそぐ注意はしません。日本人だから、おそらく入試?の準備のためという視点から、自身の今まで経験してきただめなところを意識しつつ、評しています。その程度のつもりでお聞きください。 1)I wonder how other people study English conversation. *** "other"は書かなくとも、作者(あなた自身)が、現場を越えた超越者として世界を見ているということは分かります。"other"を含める英文はあまり見かけません。 *** "English conversation"という表現は、英語的(ネイティブ的)ではありません。特に"study"をつける言い方がそうです。"practice speaking (and listening) English"とか"learn English to improve speaking (and listening) skills"の方が自然です。 (例1)I wonder how people learn English to improve speaking skills. (例2)How do people learn English to improve speaking skills? 2)There are many schools out there where learners can speak to native English speakers and it is definitely one of the best ways to go learning there. *** "private English schools"と"English"を入れたほうがいいかなと思います。 *** "out there"はどこか何らかの建物の中から外を眺めている情景という含みあります。作者は家の中からこの外の英語練習法を見ているような感じを与えます。それを意識しているならこれでいいと思います。 *** "native English speakers"は、突然現れてきたネイティブのような感じです。ネイティブ講師なら、"native instructors"のほうがよかろうかと思います。 *** "where learners can speak to native English speakers"は「学習者がネイティブスピーカーに話しかけることができる~」という日本語の英語への直訳の雰囲気です。"understandable"ではあります。 *** "go learning"は「学びに行く」という意識の表現だと思いますが、"go for lessons"の方が自然な表現です。"it is ... to"はいい表現だと思います。 (例)There are many (downtown) English schools, where people (are able to) exchange conversation with native instructors to practice, and it is definitely one of the best ways to go for practical lessons. *** ここは、", where ..."と非制限用法が適切です。 *** "go for ~"は「~を求めて行く」。"go"は単に"attend"でもいいと思います。 3)However, as is often the case, they cost us much money, and of course, we couldn't improve our English conversation only by going there. ***「よくあることですが授業料は高い」という含みの"as if often the case"でしょうが"often"で事足ります。 (例)However, the lesson fees are quite expensive, and just attending those schools is not enough to improve skills for spoken English. 4)Therefore it might be difficult for ordinary people to go there continuously until they learn enough. *** "might"を使うことで「ひょっとしたら難しいかもしれない」という難しさの小さな可能性を表現しています。「難しいこと[可能性]もある(だろう)」というニュアンスで"can(/ could)"を用いることもあります。 (例)Therefore, ordinary people can(/ could) stop their lessons on the way before they achieve satisfactory results. 最初は仕方のないことですが、浮かんだ日本語をそのまま逐語的に英語を当てはめているような感じです。その日本語的発想からいかに抜け出すかが英作文のメイン課題です。英語を書く技量は、それ以上のネイティブの書いた英文の読書量、ネイティブの話した英語の聴取量に比例します。 そして同じ意味を表す表現を様々な異なった言い換えのできる視点を学ぶ必要があります。 「動詞+副詞」は「形容詞+名詞」に書き換えできるよう、各単語の品詞転換を語彙暗記の際にも心がけるべきでしょうね。それと、書いた英文を読んで、リズムがよければかなりできているはずです。努力を続けましょう。



難しいですね>< 非常に参考になりました!

    慶応義塾大学の自由英作です、この大学の問題は解いたことがないので分かりません。 何について書くかというと まず状況から言うと、地元の高齢者ハウスを応援するために、二人の高校生がポスター何枚か学校に掲示します。 でも、少人数しか集まらなくてはじめられない。 指示が、どのようにしたら人数を集めることができるかということです。  ポスターの内容  ・場所がかいてあり  ・日時が毎週日曜・9時から   ・人数25人  ・活動内容は、話し相手、食事の補助、散歩の付き合いなど です  条件があって    ・生徒たちはなぜ少ししか応じてくれなかったのか。    ・どういう行動をとるべきか。    ・なぜその行動がうまくいくとかんがえるのか。 指定語数は100語です。 僕は136字書きました。 よろしくおねがいします。 Recently there has been a few young people who are interested in volunteers for caring elderly people. This is why, only a few students responded. I think that there are many things which they can in order to gather people. I think that they should interest people who are indifferent to the volunteer activity.For example , they talks eagerly over it with their friends in person. Then , I would like to mention poster. First, I think they change a.m.9:00 to a.m.10:00.This is because young people are poor at getting up early.when they are used to doing it, they should return to a.m.9:00 . I also think they should draw pictures and make it colorful in order to attract people. It is the most important thing is to convey their passion.

(答) I disagree with this statement. First,as people marry late,women give rise to their children when they are old.Although medical technology is improving now,it is still danger. The younger they do,the less danger they pass away. Second,if their father is old when baby is born,and they retire their job because of their age when their children go to college,it is difficult for them to pay money. Certainly,if people marry late,they afford to prepare for marrying because they have much money.But they should take their children into account. Thus,it is better to marry early rather than late.

Therefore it is often said how important learning English is as a means of global communication. However, we still hear a lot of complaints that Japanese people don't have enough ability to use English.

    長文で堅苦しい内容になってしまいましたが、添削をお願いします(^-^) あと、これは大学入試用です。 TOPIC starting foreign language education at a very early age is a good idea. I'm for this opinion. There are TWO reasons.First of all,clearly,little children aged up to three can absorb a lot of information at a rate grown-ups cannot.Responsive to sound,they are very efficient learners of new language, so they will be able to acquire two languages such as Japanese and English with little difficulty.This will be a good advance, because they will have more time learning other important subjects,say math,science,histry,and so on. Second,learning foreign language does not only mean you are learning how to read and write,but it also means you are studying other culture.It must be great that you know several culture, because it means you can understand things at global point of view without predudice.Acquiring such perspective is indispensable for people of today.

You may say that it is too expensive for most parents to afford to have their children go abroad. However, in my opinion, it is more valuable than saving money. as globalazation becomes more common, we must develop views toward various cultures and thoughts. school trips abroad is a chance to interact people different from culture, creed and so on.

    So today, to have learned English means to have your own rights as one of the users of the language. And it is just as likely that the future course of English will be influenced by second or foreign language speakers of English as by native speakers. Language learners will be facing these World Englishes, and they will develop a sense of international standards of English ―as well as their national norms of English, which are currently the focus of learning. It may not be many years, however, before an international standard becomes the starting-point for every learner of English, with British, American, and other varieties all seen as optional versions of English. 【questions】 What does “to have learned English” mean? What will learners of English develop when they face World Englishes? 二問ありますがおねがいします!

  • 一橋英作文の添削よろしくおねがいします。

    一橋 2009 Write 120 to 150 words of English about the topic below. A sense of humour is one of the most important things in life. I'm in favor of the idea that a sense of humour is one of the most important things in life. Surely, some people say that even if a person who has it, no difficult problems will be solved, so there is no point having it. In my opinion, however, it is very important for all people and in a lot of situations ,especially in difficult situations,to have it. People tend to be nervous when they face difficult situations, and no good ideas will be come up with unless they are nervous. However, what if there is a person who has a sense of humour? He would be likely to make nervous people relax by using it. By doing so, people could make the best of their power. That is why I agree with the idea. 自分の意見と反対の意見をつくるときに「自分の意見→反対の意見」としたため、若干の理由説明の弱さを自分で感じるのですがどうでしょうか。 また、a sense of humour を途中まで代名詞 it を用いてたのですが、少し a sense of humour の意の it を使わなくなったので 再びa sense of humour と書きました。 この場合は少し距離(?)があいていても it と表現しても問題ないのでしょうか? 回答よろしくお願いします。
