4.Lesson style each teacher
I take lessons from another teacher in Ikebukuro.Her lesson style is just chat rather than lesson.Her lessons are like chatting with friends.But Her lesson style is actually very high level and difficult.Because topics change from one to the next so it is difficult to follow conversation.But I feel my listening skill is getting better after her lesson every time.
finish up 終わる
meet up 出会う
I finished up my work.
from one to the next 次から次へと
one after another 次々と、あいついで
1.Difference of habit
For example,I am Korean and Ken is Japanese.If country is different,we often have confusion by different culture.
When I worked a hotel,there is a Indian co-worker.Usually we Asian people say ‘yes’ with nodding and say ‘no’ with shake our head.But Indian is opposite,say ‘yes’ with shake their head and say ‘no’ with nodding.
When I said that ‘will you have a cup of coffee?’, she shook her head and said ‘yes,please’.
I am not used to this difference of habit.
I have been to India when I was young.Indian often say, ‘No problem’.
But that’s opposite.when something happen they say ‘No problem ‘.
※Native American をIndianと言うと、差別用語になる
※aborigine ,Maori など固有名詞があるものはそのまま使う
