The first step

b0039350_10201279.jpg
A year has passed since I arrived in Canada. I got a call from my host family right now. It was wonderful. We both are fine ,and I'm sure I'll see you them again. Because of staying with them, I was the luckiest guy in Toronto.

I don't want to admit it, but eventually I'm losing the frequency of speaking English. I need a chance to talk with native English speaker.

カナダに降り立って、その日から1年が経ってた。ちょうどホストファミリーから電話があってさ、ちょっと(T-T) ウルウル。絶対また会いに行くって決めてる。あの場所に居られただけで、自分はすごい幸せだったから。

しかし・・・認めたくはないけど、やっぱ会話力落ちてるね。ネイティブと話す機会は必要だなぁ・・・。

Take this city
A city should be shining on a hill
Take this city
If it be your will
What no man can own, no man can take
Take this heart
Take this heart
Take this heart
And make it break

Panorama

b0039350_150334.jpg
Panorama is a bar and restaurant located in the 51F of Manulife Building. Like The CN Tower, it looks onto downtown Toronto. Here is a bit posh place, so price was 'nice'. Yet, taste of coktails were awesome.
マニュライフビルの51階にあるパノラマっていうバー&ラウンジ。CNタワーみたいにトロントの街を見下ろしています。それなりにいいお店なので価格も素敵です。でもカクテルはおいしかった。

the dawn and the dusk

I sat the Camblidge Exam FCE this tuesday. I'm sure I made it. Why not? It was tough, though. I need to know the score even if I would screw it up. There are three kinds of certification. Actually, just passing it is not so difficult because the exam I took was actually the low level one. If only you get get over 60% of total mark, they give you the C certificate. Getting over 900 point in TOEIC is ,I suppose, harder than this. My goal was to obtain A certificate ,but I'm not sure if I can get it.

I know my problem. Whatever exam I take, I can get a good mark in reading section and listening section despite the low mark of speaking section and writing section. It means I'm better at "decording" English than "producing" English. Unless my producing ability goes ahead of my decording ability, I can not be satisfied with my language ability. I have same problem in Japanese as well.

I'm busy and I tend to have a burden. My one of favorite teacher said "choose the fight". I felt I was convinced. I always respect his idea and then I leaned one more thing. But he also said "don't look at what I did"...I see I just take your idea lol

火曜日にケンブリッジ英検FCE受けました。確実に通ってます。中々タフな試験だったけど。で、落ちるにせよスコアは知りたい。合格っていっても3種類あって、C合格でいいなら6割とればオーケー。TOEICで900取るよか簡単なんじゃないかな。自分の目標はA合格。取れてるかわからんけど。

自分の問題点は、どんな試験においてもリスニングとリーディングで良い点取れて、ライティングと巣ピーキングがだめっていうパターン。英語を理解はできても作りだせない。この状況が逆転しない限り自分は言語について満たされないでしょうね。日本語も同じ問題抱えてるし。

とりあえず何でも抱え込んでしまう体質なんでしょうがないんだけど、今日好きな先生に「戦いは選べ」と言われた。で、なんかすごい納得している自分がいた。でも「自分がやってきたことは参考にするな」とも。そんなわけでその考え方だけ拝借しますwww

good bye for・・・

I'm going to take the exam.

University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations

Actually, I have a strong confidence that I can pass the exam. However, I really want to get as high mark as I can get. I wanna prove what I've done in this year.Anyway, I'm away from Japanese for few weeks.

Finally, I dreamed in English. While I was sleeping, I was said that I said something in English lol. It's a bit delightning for me.

試験受けます、ケンブリッジ大のやってるやつ。

ほぼ間違いなく受かるけど、持てるだけの力で取れるだけのスコアをとりたいし、自分のこの1年を証明したいし、そんなわけでしばらく日本語から離れます。

とうとう英語で夢見るようになって、寝言英語で呟いて・・・ちょっと嬉しいwwwwwwww

In autum, the weather was pretty gloomy. Actually I was waiting for this kind of weather because I don't wanna go to Ontario Sceience Centre in sunny day lol. Anyway, I went there this week end.

待ってました、秋のどんよりとした空。っていうかもう冬か?オンタリオサイエンスセンターに行くなら天気の良くない日と決めていたので、これはいいチャンスでした。そんな週末。

countdown

I arranged the airline ticket today.

Now, countdown starts.

Off course I don't wanna go back to Japan. I must go back, though.

I can remember clearly when I came here.

What I've done, What I've said, what I've felt......everything has been building myself. I'm still on the way to my goal. I can't waste my time.

The autum song

b0039350_15415325.jpg


Who said that Toronto doesn't have nature? I don't think it's true. I walked in "Autum" a couple of weeks ago. These pictures were taken on Rosedale valley road and Bayview ave. Also at Cristie Park.
トロントに自然がないなんて時々言う人おりますが、さてどうでしょう?数週間前にトロントの紅葉の中を歩き回ってきました。まだちょっと早かったかな。ドンバレー周辺とクリスティーパークです。
