These days, I post instagram in English like a retunee student who pretends local. But until quite recently, I thought learing English is not productive.This is because the AI technology can be a substitute for the language difference.
But ,my mind changed 180 degrees.
The reasons why I changed are following,
1, Improvement of my English level
2, Travel abroad
1,Improvement of my English level
First, before came to APU, I heve never studied aboroad. So my English is much more bloken than now.At APU is the first time to use English in earnest. Then, my English level improved naturally. I receive two benefits through the change.
- You can find greater community for you.
It usually happens that community that you belong to is uncorfortable. At the situation, English speakers can choose new environment from various community. If you speak only Japanese, you would meet similar peeps.
- Your starangement would be accepted.
In Japan, I am a little bit strange. but i guess we are different but all of us pretend common people. Because Japanese speaker is a small cammunity and there is traditional order. In such a community, the strange go to distiny to removal.
1 month ago, I visited malaysia with my friend. We reserved transportations and some tours separately. But only I can use internatinal website for that. Then I found that on the international website , there is cheper and better and more kinds content than Japanese ones.There are more opotunity to enjoy travel that I didn't know.
At APU, I have many close international friends and I experienced a lot of frustrated situations. For example, I dont have ability to say what i wanted to, I was took care of my understadings and i was made fun of the English level.Theresfore simply I want to learn English.
I have now came to realize that the idea that English is meaningless might be just excuse not to study Engish.
