28 金 Lesson120 今週のreview

Hi, everyone. This is Akino Rosa. We have lots to cover. So let’s go.
Hi, everyone, I’m Chris McVay. So once again, today for this review. Let’s do our very best.

All right. Let’s listen to Monday’s dialog.
-Monday – Lesson 116 比較級③比較のバランスをとる

Hi Philip! How was your Japanese class today?
We spoke Japanese quite a lot. That part was fun. However, the problem is learning kanji. The teacher said we need to learn 500 by the end of this year! How on earth am I supposed to learn that many?
Well, most Japanese adults know about 2,000 kanji.
Two thousand? That’ll take me years! Do you have any advice?
I recommend you begin by reading easy books with hiragana and some simple kanji. I know it’s tough but remember, doing something is always better than doing nothing.
OK, gambarimasu.

Doing something is always better than doing nothing.
いつだって何もしないよりも何かをするほうがましよ。

Now let’s move on to Tuesday’s dialog.
-Tuesday – Lesson 117 節を使った比較

Hi, Ryota. Have you talked with our new colleague, Manabu?
Not yet, but I saw him this morning. He looks very professional, doesn’t he? What was his previous job?
Surprisingly, he just graduated from university this past March. After that, he did an international business training course in the US, and came back to Japan this month.
Really? He looks older than he actually is. Hopefully, he’ll bring some fresh ideas to our company.
I hope so, too. I’m really looking forward to working with him.
Me too.

He looks older than he actually is.
彼は実際の年齢よりも上に見える。

Next step, Wednesday’s dialog.
-Wednesday – Lesson 118 最上級①基礎

Oh, are those photos of your stay in Texas?
Yes, I can’t believe it’s already been five months since I got back.
Is that a Mexican restaurant?
Yes, this is the best restaurant in town. One of my American friends took me there.
And that’s a burrito, isn’t it? It looks really good.
Yeah, it was awesome.
And who’s this tall guy next to you?
That’s the school’s basketball team captain. He looks sad because he missed the final shot in the national tournament.
Well, even the best players can sometimes make mistakes.
Yes, I know. I hope he’ll get over it and be no less confident than before.

This is the best restaurant in town.
これは町でいちばんのレストランよ。

Finally, let’s hear Thursday’s dialog.
-Thursday-Lesson 119 最上級②最上級を使った表現
That was a great all-night classic film festival.
Yeah, when we went into the theater, it was dark outside. Now it’s morning!
How about talking about the films over a cup of coffee?
Great idea. And maybe breakfast too. I’m hungry. Which movie did you like the most, Lily?
Paris, Texas, directed by Wim Wenders. That is the most moving film I’ve ever seen.
I loved that film too. I’ll never forget it.
I have DVDs of some other films directed by Wim Wenders. Let’s watch them sometime。
Sounds good. But right now I need a long break from watching movies.

That is the most moving film I’ve ever seen.
それは私が今まで見た中でいちばん感動した映画です。

-PRACTICAL CHALLENGE!〜実践チャレンジ!
Okay, everyone. You know what to do. And remember the point is not to hesitate. There’s nothing wrong with making some mistakes.
Yes, and you know, everyone studies at their own pace. So choose a pace which is comfortable for you. The important thing, though, is to keep practicing at least a little bit every single day.
「英語を話すのは以前ほど難しくありません。今朝アメリカ人のお客さんと電話で話しましたが、何も考えることなく英語を話していたのです。 『ラジオ英会話』をずっと聞いているから。今まで聞いた中でいちばんの番組ですよ!」

tough 難しい
used to 以前は〜だった
client お客さん、顧客
without thinking 考えることなく、無意識に

SIMPLE ANSWER
Speaking English is not as tough as it used to be. I spoke with an American client on the phone this morning, and I talked with him in English without thinking It’s because I’ve been listening to “Radio Eikaiwa.” It’s the best program I’ve ever listened to.

英語を話すのは以前ほど難しくありません。今朝アメリカ人のお客さんと電話で話しましたが、何も考えることなく英語で話していたのです。ラジオ英会話」をずっと聞いているから。今まで聞いた中でいちばんの番組ですよ!

Chris, it’s your turn.
Okay, here is my version.
-advanced version

I used to think that speaking English was much more difficult than writing it. But after listening to “Radio Eikaiwa, ” I’ve changed my mind. I handled an entire conversation with an American client in English this morning. There’s no doubt about it “Radio Eikaiwa” is the most useful language program ever!

change one’s mind 意見を変える。気が変わる
handle うまく扱う、対処する」
entire 全体の


Yeah, this week’s practical challenge was pretty difficult, don’t you think so, Chris?
Yes, but you know, our listeners are the most amazing people in the world.
I would have to agree. There is no doubt about it.
So they just have to keep going the way they have been up to now, right?
Exactly.
