10 木 Lesson184 関係代名詞that② 省略ができないケース
That’s right.
It’s yesterday once more, sorry, hi everyone. Chris McVay here. I wonder if songs are useful for studying English. Mmm, let’s see.

Did you hear someone in the apartment building singing late last night?
Yes, I think I heard a woman singing “Yesterday Once More” by the Carpenters. She was very good. But it was kind of loud.
The woman that lives next door is an English teacher. Maybe it was her practicing her pronunciation.
Oh, that’s possible. It’s very easy to understand each word of the Carpenters’ songs. That’s good for students studying English.
I agree, but I couldn’t sleep very well last night. Maybe we can ask her to go to karaoke with us someday.
That’s a good idea.

The woman that lives next door is an English teacher.

Is it possible to leave that out in this sentence?
No.

昨日の夜遅くに、アパートで誰かが歌っているのが聞こえたかい?
ええ、女性がカーペンターズの「イエスタデイ・ワンス・モア」を歌っているのを聞いたように思うわ。ちょっとうるさかったけど。彼女はとても上手だったわ。
隣に住んでいる女性は英語の先生だ。たぶん、発音の練習をしていたのは彼女だろうね。
ああ、その可能性はあるわね。カーペンターズの歌で使われているどの単語も、とても分かりやすいし。英語を勉強している学生の役に立つわ。
確かにそうだけど、昨日の夜はよく眠れなかったよ。そのうち、彼女に一緒にカラオケに行くか聞いてみてもいいかもね。
それはいい考えだわ。

Ah, maybe our listeners should use the textbook.
That’s a good idea.

career キャリア
So what’s the exact nuance of career?
Well, career is actually much deeper than just saying work history. It comes from the word, to run, and we have to imagine, it’s like ah, race from the start to the finish. So career describes the course of your professional life from the beginning to the end.

So do native speakers learn that you can’t leave out that in such constructions?

You know, I don’t think we really learned it so specifically, right?
We consciously learned it. I think it happens naturally, right?
Yeah.
