What motivates me and you to learn English?
Good evening again,
It is finally weekend here! How are you doing? I am good and appreciate all the kind comments, which encourages me to blog here. THANKS!!
I would like to talk about my motivation to learn English...
First of all, my experience of exchange study in Singapore has motivated myself for English. It was already 2 years ago when I was there. When I applied to the program, I had just finished the junior of my university and was very interested in being a student in a different country. I actually had two reasons - *my real intention and stated reason: I wanted to have the experience of living abroad and studied Southeast Asian studies. I was really worried before the exchange, because most of my friends would start working at that time, but I would not.
However, I am confident that the life there for a year deserved me spending time. All the things I experienced were new to me, and I got chances to travel in that area. One more thing, I got friends from many countries, which was beyond my expectations. It was such a nice experience for me and I wish I could get the chance like this someday! I would like to say this is my first motivation.
At the same time, I had so many difficulties with communicating people. I had never used English in a daily life so I could not speak well! Thanks to friends and Singapore, they were very open for foreigners. And sometimes I spoke Japanese with friends and shared complaints, enjoyment, and thoughts so I was fine:)
Do you have any motivations? It would be great if you kindly post yours!
Good night and sweet dreams for everyone:)
one's real intention and stated reason : We Japanese sometimes say this is our culture - when you talk about serious things, we go for 'appearence' first. Then go fo the real thoughts. Readers, do you agree for this?
