Fake letter (about animals sentience) to progress in English

04/01/2018 - 16:15 | Tchil

Someone can correct my text ?

I am a biology student and I have seen your video yesterday about your pet shop. I am very chock by what I heard.

Indeed, when we listen you, we feel that animals are simple object that we can buy easily like we buy a bread. It is not normal. Moreover, you sell a pet to someone without advice whereas in the most cases, this person never had pet in its life.

This problem is just a minor problem compare with ma second part. Indeed, even if you become very conscientious, you give a lot of advices, you talk about animals like you talk a human etc… It is not enough.  Firstly, pet shop should not have any cats or dogs because the space is too small for them! Secondly, I think, the seller should be able to refuse to sell an animal to someone. It is not normal that the seller can not refuse to sell whereas it is a person who do not care about animal (for any reason). Even if it is a person who is nice with animals, I think it is essential that this person be informed before buy it. Indeed, too many people buy a pet because it is cute but one month later, they sell it or abandon…

To resolve these problems, we have to do something. Firstly, I think every owner should be learn all main information about the animal he wants before buy it. Secondly, the space for cat or dog must be increase in pet shop.

Where has my English skill gone?

04/01/2018 - 16:15 | Yuucaaa

About 20 years ago, I tried very hard to use English as much as I can everyday during my stay in Canada for three months.  I took a few English lessons almost everyday, and hung out a lot with non-Japanese people in order to avoid from speaking in Japanese, my mother tongue.  I listened to news and dramas in English so much that my ears got confused:  I even felt as if I heard English when I actually heard Japanese people having conversations.

After three months, I felt very comfortable and confident in speaking English.  I stupidly thought  I finally managed to master English, and would no longer have to suffer from learning it.  However, I realized how stupid I was.  Even though I kept going to an English conversation school in order to maintain my English skill twice or three times a week after coming back to Japan, I could see I got lost it very quickly.  It reminded me of "Flowers for Algernon."  In this story, a young man who had had a low IQ became genius after having an operation. However, after some periods, his IQ was getting back. It was really cruel for him to see that.  I felt fear and despair as he did while the similar things was happening to me.

 I've been learning English on and off since then, but I still can't feel as comfortable as I did at that time when I used English.  It's like completely gone like fat seems disappear after losing some weight.

In many countries today young people are forced to get a job which they are not suited to or passionate about.

What do you think may be the reason for this?

What problems might this cause?

*When you check my writing, please check if my writing is response to questions, coherence, cohension, grammatical range and accuracy.

 

Nowadays, getting a job after graduating high school or college is quite common.

Sometimes I hear about adults who quitted their job because they didn't love their job.

I think there are several reasons for that. 

 Now I am going to explain two main reasons.

 First, I think getting job becomes a kind of costom. In Japan, for example, about 97% of the college students have job interiview then get job. Therefore getting a job is not a step for next life stage or progression but a life goal.I think they tend to put their economic stability before what they really want to do. This is mainly because they have their family or children to feed. 

 Second, after they had a job interview and get job, which thay thought of as exciting or worthwhile to work for, they might change their mind then find sothing new, which they have come to think of as an ideal. However, in Japan, their work place and chainging their job is difficult and even they transferred their job, they may not be satisfied with it. In addition to start a new bussiness by themselves is risky and they can start it if it is within their finance estimates, which is limited. Therefore starting things new is also difficult. 

 In order not to cause this sad consequence, I think planning for the future before we enroll a collegr is quite important. Planning for what you are going to do in the future then finding what you are going to do after graduation lead to far better consequences. Accordingly, the plannning for life and how we spend life in a college is significant to lead a satisfying life.

 

Thank you for your reading whith your careful checking of what I write above!

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom!

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in my city. They are beautiful!
In Japan, schools start in April. That's why when Japanese people see cherry blossoms, they feel the start of the school year.

The next thing I write will be an introduction.

 

I'm sure I've used the puntuation wrong...

I received messages from some one and wanted to reply. Then I found this is impossible. Pressing the "message" button doesn't work. I tried some other members and it's the same. why?

I just installed Skype today.

I just installed Skype on my smartphone today. Actually, since I don’t have a headset, I decided to use my smartphone, not my computer.

By the way, have you ever heard of LINE? LINE is an App like WhatsApp. Most Japanese people are using LINE, not WhatsApp. I think LINE is more fun than WhatsApp, because you can use many fun stickers on LINE. If you wanted to chat with Japanese people, it might be good for you to use LINE:)
