After your English lesson, listen to the recording again. It only takes 5 minutes. Try to listen to the same recording once a day. Try to do this every day.

"OK"

Listen Every Day

"OK"

Then, read the recording aloud. Try to read at the same time as the voice actors. Try to sound the same as the voice actors. Have fun!

In class, try to have good conversations! Here is some advice:

Two students have a conversation.

Try to talk a lot. Have fun!

ではクラスメート同士が会話する番です。インタビューの各質問を、順番交代に質問し、答えよう。単語での回答はなるべく避けよう。一般的に長い回答の方がよいです。コメントを加えたり、リアクションするように心がけよう。相手からもっと情報を引き出せるよう、追加の質問をしよう。下のスペースに相手の答えをメモするのを忘れないように。どんな追加の質問をしようか困ったら、左ページの会話文の例を見てみよう。追加の質問の例: Why...? What kind...? Where...? When...? Who...? How often...? Did you...? Was it...? Like what? What else? How about you? (+ 最初の質問) etc. コメントやリアクションの例: Oh, really? That’s cool. That’s great! Me, too. You’re kidding. No way! That sounds fun. That sounds nice. Uh-huh. Yeah. etc.

This is Not Good:

"So, where do you live?"

"Osaka  ... "

This answer is just one word. It's too short. Try to give longer answers, with more information.

This is a GOOD example:

"So, where do you live?"

"Uh-huh. How long have you lived there?"

"That's cool."

"How about you? Where do you live?"

"Um..., about 2 months."

"I live in Osaka, near Namba station."

That's a good example. Try to have long answers. Try to make comments and have good reactions. Ask follow-up questions. You can do it! If you need help, check out the tapescripts.
