I enjoy learning English. I will tell you HOW.

I don't know whether to go to English school or not, but for now I study English by myself.

Somehow I will learn English fluently.

Now that I know the way to learn, I will tell you.

1 Language exchange friends.
I have language exchange friends named Nick, Mona, Jack and Sean.
We teach each other our own languages.
He is Nick, his Japanese is very good. He lived in Nagasaki for 2 years.
Umm... I will have my hair cut.

I think that it's the best way to learn foreign language, and it's fun!
I meet them about once a week.

How have I found these great friends?
I used Facebook and twitter. Possibly you can find some also.


Watching movies

Do you know the app “Popcorn Time”? It's an amazing application. It's all free to watch movies, not only that we can watch them with English subtitles. I saw many movies already, for example “Star wars” series, “The world's fastest Indian” and “Ruddy” and so on.

I try to understand the movie at my own natural speed, but if I see a word which I don't understand I can pause the movie and look for the word in the dictionary.

This is also a fun way to learn. 



3 Writing blog.



It's my hobby and Job. I appreciate you seeing my blog. Thank you very much.
I try to use new grammar and vocabulary. I'm not afraid of mistakes because my language exchange friends correct it.



Talking with friends.


I live in Kinlay hostel’s apartment. Fortunately I have a chance to talk with open-minded international housemates. They come from Spain, U.S, Canada, Italia, Bulgaria and Croatia. Sometimes it's exhausting to speak foreign languages. However I have to use English to survive.



Reading books. Learning by book.
I read books written in English about Japan, because I'm asked by many people about Tokyo, Geisha, Anime, politics, like that kind of things. I know these things. but I can't explain them well in English. I learn again about Japan in English.  

The book named “English Grammar for 100 million Japanese" it's really useful to understand English system and mind. I learn from that book a lot.



These are my methods to learn English, I wonder if you’ll find my methods suit you.

edited by Jack thank you!

We made Sushi rolls in our apartment!



My friend Stephen left today.
I miss him very much.

I promised to make him sushi.
So before he left, I did!
My language exchange friend Mona


Thank you for preparing and washing the dishes Laura!


Tuna, Salmon, Prawn, Egg, Cream cheese.

Cucumber, Avocado, Spinach, Carrot, Sesame, Celery, 
rolled up with sticky Japanese rice and Seaweed.
dipped in Wasabi and Soy-sauce.

These are called "Maki zushi"
Maki means "roll" in Japanese.

We generally use raw fish,
but in Ireland I couldn't find fresh fish.

 
They made sushi rolls very well!!




Some people in our apartment are vegetarian.
So we made vege-rolls too.
These were also delicious.

I'm happy to introduce Japanese traditional food to foreigners.


I also served green-tea espresso like Maccha.
They liked the taste, but I love it very much.
However my Spanish friends didn't like it.
That was very interesting.


I will make Tempura for you guys!
Do you know Tempura?


collected by Nick, Thank you very much

"3 idiots" the best movie I've ever seen. check it out!


For more than 8 years, when I was asked “What is your favourite movie?”,
I answered "The World's Fastest Indian”

However now my answer has changed to  “3 idiots”

The movie's story is about 3 idiots who study at a super elite university in India.

I laughed and cried a lot for almost 3 hours.

I felt it went by in a flash.

___

It's a kind of slapstick comedy set in university, but as I watched I grew increasingly absorbed.
It includes mystery, a love story, and problems of indian student's suicide.

The story is especially awesome. There are many clues, and at the ending, they are amazingly settled.

If you watch this movie, you will feel extremely good. I guarantee it.

“What is success?”
“How to manage stress and fear?”

You can find the answers to these questions.

It is 3 hours long. However I have already watched it 3 times in as many days.

It's the best movie I've ever seen in my life.




I recommend the movie to anyone who wants to feel happy!





edited by Nick, Thank you very much.

" 3 idiots"

Two friends embark on a quest for a lost buddy. On this journey, they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash, and a funeral that goes, ridiculously out of control. As they make their way through the perilous landscape, another journey begins: their inner journey through memory lane and the story of their friend -- the impressible free-thinker Rancho, who is in unique way, touched and changed their lives. It's a story of their hostel days that swings between Rancho's romance with the spirited Pia, and his clash with an oppressive mentor, Viru Sahastrabudhhe. And then one day, suddenly, Rancho vanished. Who was he? Where did he come from? Why did he leave? The friend who influenced and inspired them to think creatively and independently, even as the conformist world called them "three idiots." Where is the original idiot now? Finally, in misty mountains of unparalleled beauty, the friends find the key to the secret.

I visited organic farm near from Galway.




I rent a bike from Adolf come from Spain.
I visited a organic farm where I found in internet, near from Galway.
It takes one hour by bicycle.

Long time I want to see the farm but I didn't had bicycle, so now I can!

The shop open only every Wednesday between 2-7pm, fortunately I come on Wednesday at4pm!! I have always that kind of luck. 

He is Tom who cultivates this farm 10 years. The farm is 30 acre. But they use only 20 acre for growing up agricultural products. 1/3 he uses for nature that means he takes care not only vegetable and fruits, but also trees birds, other animals and earth! I think thats why the name of farm is “Green earth organics”



He sell organic products, local as possible. He talked not so much, but if I asked something to him, he answered very kindly with smile. After talking he gave me a favour. “You can see my farm if you want” I answered “Yes!! I want!“ “Recent days there are not so much products but you can see around my farm.”

I ran out from shop with camera. 


I passed through muddy road. Then I organic found field.




There are Leeks
We eat for soup. I just put salt and bake in the oven. Compare with Japanese leeks, here’s are more strong taste and hard. I like it.





There are spinach, European people eat even fresh that means they don’t cook spinach as a salad or something. I eat like europeans too. yummy!! 

I don’t know how far Toms farm extend.


Every week they deliver organic vegetables to your door!!
If you are interested in organics check it out!


____________________________



It takes 15km from city centre of Galway,

The way of that farm are really dangerous way, which is very narrow street, but big vehicles passed very fast (limited speed are 100km). OMG!

I felt much strain. I can’t visit every week, but I will visit again definitely.

At the end, I asked him, “I will work here!” then, he answered “Maybe you can come in summer again!”
