Is it fact? ー中学レベルで足りるっていうけど…ー

Today, I will write in English because I have such a mode.

 

ーIndexー

 

1:The English level of junior high school 

 Some people who are good at English say that we meet with the knowledge of it which we had learned until junior high school.

In fact, many books based on such an opinion are published.

I have heard this advice many times.

Many people, especially undergraduate students, believe it. I had done it until I restarted studying English to pass the entrance exam for university too. And, they don’t strive to study English skills. I had done until then too.

In the present, I think.

 

How foolish of me!!

 

2:Japanese high school students…

  Many high school students study hard to pass the university's entrance exam but they don't study anything when they finish the exam. In this situation, they believe that opinion.

The reason is simple.

 

 they think they needn't strive because it is easy to studing English of the level of junior high school.

 

3:In fact…

 Surely, in a sense, we may meet with the English level of junior high school

For example, we have daily communication, e-mail, and reading newspapers.

In communication, opponents collect a word listening to our speaking and put together the meaning which we speak about.

So it is mainly composed to their imagination and kindly.

 In reading newspapers, writers write in easy English for people who aren’t good at English to understand.

 We tend to think we meet with easy English but in fact these situations are compounded by kind people.

So,we should give grace to such kind people.

 

4:Can you deal with something to understand difficultly?

 However, we can't only do them.

We must have many chances to research special knowledge, write academic reports and learn something that it is difficult for people who aren't goot at English.

 

When we have these chances,

we can deal with it, can’t we?

 

5:Famous advice

  “keeping what is situation is declining in fact.”

This is very famous advice.

It is true.

I think so.

We should keep improving ourselves and don't stop growing.

Therefore, we don't have the perfect level.

 Of course, we have the level of priority.

But, we aren’t to satisfied with our presence.

The easy way isn’t.

So we shouldn’t believe in the presence of an easy way.

 

Thank you for reading.

 

★日本語訳

 中学英語で足りると主張する人がいる。実際これをベースにした本は沢山出版されているし,自分もそういった意見を何度も聞いたことがある。特にこういった意見は学部生に信じられていて,それを根拠に英語スキルの向上を怠る様になる。自分も編入の勉強を再開するまでそう思っていた。でも,今になって思う。

「なんてバカなんだ!!」

 多くの高校生は大学受験の為に一生懸命勉強するけど,試験が終わると勉強しなくなる。そんな状態であの意見は信じられている。何故かって?理由は簡単である。

中学英語は学ぶのが簡単で,努力が不要だと思っているからである。

 確かに,ある意味では中学英語で足りるかもしれない。

日常会話やメール,新聞を読む程度なら何とかなるかもしれない。

これらは英語が苦手でもこなせるように親切な人が配慮してくれるゆえに成り立っているのではなかろうか。

我々はそんな親切な人に感謝せねばならない。

 ただ,それだけやっているという訳にはいかないだろう。

専門的なことを調べなければならない時だってあるし,学術論文を読まないといけないこともあるだろうし,さらに英語が苦手な人には難解なものを学ばなければならないかもしれない。

そういう機会がやってきた時,勿論あなたたちは対応できるんだよね?

 現状維持は停滞だ

結構有名な言葉だと思う。

これは真実だ。少なくとも自分はそう思う。

だからこそ,現状に満足してはいけないし,成長を止めてはいけない。

勿論,優先順位はあれど,満足するラインなんてものは存在してはいけないし,楽な道だって存在しない。

楽な道を信じてはいけないと思う。
