The real problem with English.
Pronunciation? Lack of speaking opportunities? Junior High and High school English class? Wasei Eigo? Ear muscles?
All of these in aggregate can lead to you feeling paralyzed in English.
But I discovered something that might help you see your English challenge, along with all general challenges in life.
If anyone has been successful in doing it before, there is a correct way to do it. For everyone.
For example: One of my friends said they are bad at cooking Yakisoba. What does that mean?
I saw them cooking it, and they burned the bottom and the noodles got slimy.
Now they claimed they are not good at cooking things like Yakisoba.
Is that the truth?
No. The truth is, they didn’t read or follow the directions. In addition they didn’t try to do it enough times.
The truth is they didn’t execute the right steps a person is supposed to do when trying to create the delicious noodles.
English is like Yakisoba. Just like it’s silly to be bad at making Yakisoba as a Japanese, it’s seems silly to be bad at speaking English in such a highly educated country like Japan.
We could talk all day about the challenges Japanese face when speaking English, but the truth is, you just have to put all your energy into finding the right way, and make it a lifestyle.
However, this blog is not a direct sales pitch to buy our products (it’s indirectly a pitch), it is to show you that instead of searching for shortcuts or accepting Shoganai type excuses, you should put all your energy into learning what it takes to successfully execute English communication.
And maybe one day you could be communicating the steps of how to make Yakisoba to some foreigners interested in Japan…in English.[日本語文へ]
