2018.10.20 in Rick's class speech.

2018.10.20(23:17) 17



 今週の水曜日にNHKの「ためしてガッテン」という番組ですい臓癌を取り上げていました。
Last (This: Rick's correction) Wednesday I watched a TV program about pancreatic cancer on NHK TV 'Try and Got it', Tameshite-Gatten.「ためしてガッテン」

すい臓癌は発見が遅れるため多くの場合数ヶ月しか生きられない怖い病気として知られています。
Pancreatic cancer is known as a scary disease that can only live a few months, often due to delayed discovery. These days with long life and increasing in diabetic patients like me, more and more people get suffered this cancer. It was because of this illness that Steve Jobs ceased Apple. He died the next day he launched the iPhone 4S on October 5th, 2011.

早期発見と治療が成功している地域病院についての紹介でした。お金をかけることなく手軽にできる方法の発見でした。その番組を見て私は受けた検査はまさに同じ手法でありました。そしてかなり高い確率で私の場合もそうであったのだと気づかされました。ただし今日のお話はその話ではありません。
The program was an introduction about the community hospital where early detection and treatment were successful. It was a discovery of a method that could be easily done without spending much money. When I saw that program, the examination I received was exactly the same method. And I realized that it was quite a high probability in my case. Today's story is not that one though. I am sorry that the introduction is too long.

先週、私の膵臓の影についてお話しました。
その話を医者から聞いたときまず断食道場に予約を入れました。
多くの人が言うように2ヶ月で癌が消えることは普通考えられません。
だからもともとなかったのか小さいものがあったのかわかりません。
今日は二つ目に取った行動のお話です。
Last week, I talked about the shadow of the pancreas.
Contrary to the doctor's advice, I first made an appointment to the fasting exercise Doujyo.
As many people say, it is unbelievable that cancer will disappear in 2 months.
So do I, but I didn't know whether it was originally small or nothing.
Today's point is not that situation, but is my second story of action.

突然ですが余命半年と医者から宣言されたらあなたは何をしますか?
死を前にして何をするか想像できますか?
What will you do if you are declared from the doctor and half a year remaining life?
Can you imagine what you do before death?

家族に遺書を書きますか。身辺整理をしましすか。
私の場合はまだその宣言の手前であったのですが選ぶ行動は同じだったのです。
動ける限り病院への入院はあり得ません。
Do you write your will or arrange your family?
In my case I was still in front of the declaration,
but the action I chose might be the same.
I want to talk with people around the world as long as I can move.

死とはとても個人的な出来事です。
私が思うに、家族は大切です。
しかしそれ以上に重要なのは後悔なく人生を終えること。
他の家族のメンバーもそう思うと考えます。
Death is a very personal event.
My family is important, as I think.
But more important is to end life without regret.
I think that other family members think so.

私はパリまでの往復切符をできるだけ安く購入しました。
最近はインターネットを使って比較的簡単に航空券が購入できます。
私は京都支社にフランス留学に詳しいスタッフがいる会社を見つけました。
ニースで留学経験のフランス通のC.Y.さんが話を聞いてくれました。
(相談されるときは「よろしくYaussi」と伝えてくださいね!)
I bought round trip tickets to Paris as cheaply as possible.
Recently you can purchase air tickets easily using the internet.
I found a company that has staff familiar with studying french in France.

ところが話が具体的になったとき問題が明らかになりました。
ビザなしで90日を越えてしまうと往復航空券が使えなくなりかもしれないということです。違法になるということです。
However, when the story became concrete, the problem became clear.
If you go over 90 days without a visa in Europe, it means that round trip tickets may not be usable. It is illegal. I did not have time to get a visa. Well I wonder what I should do.

この続きのお話はまた次回ということにします。
最後にフランス語の色についてお話して終わりにします。
(なぜなら先週若い女性のスピーチに口紅=Rougeがあったから)
2つの言語は兄弟です。

The (story of this) continuation is next time.
I'm going to go to China next week, so I will do it in the first week of November.
At the end, I will talk about the color name of French and finish today's story.
You can see the two languages are brothers and sisters, siblings.
Please follow me.

青 Blue is blue in french (Adding TamTam = nick name). ブルー
グレー Gray is gris. グリ
オレンジ Orange is orange. オホンジュ
And finally,
赤 Red is rouge. ホージュ
Thankyou! And next person please.

紫 Purple or violet is violet. ヴィオレ
ピンク Pink or Rose is rose. ホーズ
白 White is blanc ブロン, like blank in english.

中国への旅

2018.11.03(20:32) 18

2018.11.03 in Rick's class speech.

IMG_1572.jpg


私たちは先週10月25日から29日まで中国を訪問しました。
We visited China from 25th to 29th October last week.

5日間とてもよい天気に恵まれました。
We had a very good weather for 5 days.

しかしながら北京空港はスモッグでかすんでいました。
However, Beijing airport was hazy with smog.

北京の大気汚染は改善されたと聞いていましたが、現実はまだのようでした。
I heard that air pollution in Beijing was improved,
but actualy it seemed not having been done yet.

空港でわたしは荷物の中からマスクを探すことにしました。
At the airport I decided to look for a mask from the baggage.

私たちは入国管理手続きを早く終えたのでロビーで他の人を待ちました。
その間中国人と話ができました。彼は英語がとても達者でした。
その人は私の英語は他の日本人とはまるで違うといいました。
私はリックの英会話を習っているのだと言いました。
We finished immigration early and waited for others in the lobby.
Meanwhile I was able to talk with a Chinese man. He was very good at English.
The man said that my English is completely different from other Japanese people.
I said that I was learning Rik's English conversation every week.

その日は北京市内の紫禁城を見学しました。
私たちはその大きさに圧倒されました。
On that day I visited the castle in Beijing city.
We were overwhelmed by that big scale.

私たちは城の見学だけで1万歩以上歩きました。
We walked over 10,000 steps, observing the castle only.

次の日私たちは有名な万里の長城の見学に行きました。
風は強く寒さはひとしおでありました。
そこには外国からの旅行者も多くいました。
カリフォルニアから来た老人のグループに挨拶をしました。
彼らは君たちも同じようなグループだねといいました。

The next day we went to visit the famous Great Wall.
The wind was strong and the cold was very severe.
There were many travelers from abroad there.
I greeted a group of old people from California.
One of woman said that you guys are similar groups.

その日もとても多く歩いたのでぐっすり眠れました。
I slept well as I walked so many on the day.

次の日北京から蘇州(スジョー)まで高速列車に乗りました。
日本の初期の新幹線と似て座席はとても狭かったです。
最高時速は300キロを超えているのが表示されていました。

The next day I took a high - speed train from Beijing to Suzhou.
The seats were very narrow, similar to the earliest Shinkansen in Japan.
It was displayed that the maximum speed exceeded 300 km.

最後の訪問地は上海でした。
私たちはその大きさと夜景の美しさに酔いしれることができました。
次の日の上海から羽田のフライトはたったの2時間30分でした。
私はこんなに近いところにこんなに巨大な国があったのだと思いました。
The last place to visit was Shanghai.
We were enchanted by its scale and the beauty of the night view.
The next day's flight from Shanghai to Haneda was only 2 hours and a half.
I thought that there was such a huge country in such a close place.

老人問題

2018.11.10(08:56) 13

先週のリックの英会話の後、老荘大学-老人クラブの集まりに行きました。
今日は老人問題について話したいと思います。
Last week after Rik 's English conversation, I went to an ago campus - an elderly club gathering.
Today I would like to talk about the elderly problem.

日本の65歳以上の人口比率は2013年(5年前)に25%に達し
いまや3割を超え数年後には3人に一人は高齢者になる。
これは予言ではなく確実な統計なのです。
The population ratio of Japan over 65 years reached 25% in 2013 (five years ago)
Now more than 30% and one in three people will be elderly after a few years.
This is not a prophecy but a reliable statistic.

リック英会話に参加するとき午前と午後のクラスを見学しました。
どのクラスも年寄りでいっぱいでした。

皆が話すことによって英語のアウトプットをすることはとてもよい方法だと思いました。
When I participated in Rick English conversation I went to the class in the morning and afternoon.
Every class was full of old people.The point to join this class is that it is a great way to speak English and make an English output.


Rougeさんを除いてほぼ全ての人の問題と言い換えることもできるのですが。
健康、お金、介護、そして死に対して私たちはどのように向かいあうか?
Almost all people 's problems except Miss Rouge.
How do we face health, money, care, and death?

こんなことを中国人が言っています。
夕暮れ時は美しい。しかし
その後には闇が迫っている。
ベートーベンの運命の暗い響きを聞くようです。
A Old Chinese man are saying such a thing.
It is beautiful at dusk.
However after that the darkness is approaching.
It seems to hear the dark resonance of Beethoven's 5th symphony.

私たちは死を恐れながらも次の事実を認めます。
第一に全ての人に平等に訪れる自然現象であること。
第二に有限の時間の中で人生の大切さを考え
第三に若い次の世代に活躍の場を与える
While we are afraid of death we recognize the following facts.
First of all, it is a natural phenomenon coming equally to all people.
Second, think about the importance of life in a finite time
Third, give young generation a place of success in the next generation


私は引っ込み思案でした。その私がヨーロッパに行ったのも死を突きつけられたからに違いありません。

I was reticent and retiring Hikkomijian in Japanese. It must be because I went to Europe that I was confronted with death.

Speech In Rich's class

2018.12.08(13:46) 14

[Top page, click here]

 Speaking English in this class is very wonderful. I have noticed that English reading also have understood better than before. I feel that the total strength of English has improved with speaking training. It is not flattery for this class. I think that I am conscious of word order and specific phrases rapidly when talking. I recognize that being able to listen to own story is important for language learning. While listening to other people's story, a different sentence appears in my head, or another perspective comes to my mind. It is more important to speak in English this change of mind. Of course it is also necessary to know a lot of words and phrases. In addition to own speech, here we can listen to various stories such as seasons, current events, local events and other experiences. For example, the seasonal topics are autumn color and persimmon and then the famous night festival story. Even the same Japanese, we have a new awareness when we try to talk each other in English. I have always been aware of my first story to continue last week. It became a bit of a rut - saying boring situation, but this week as well again.
 Last Saturday before lesson, I asked Rick about his friend who lived in the neighborhood. He is famous in Ohme as a teacher of English conversation with Rick. Today I will tell the old people who live in my neighborhood. One is a 87-year old man. He sometimes comes to my house and talks. When I am out, he will put a piece of note in the mailbox. He keeps making haiku at the haiku party. (I don't make Haiku.) He is walking a considerable distance every day, getting new Haiku imagination. Since I also walk a lot for health, we sometimes meet on the road. At that time, we try not to disturb each other by short greetings.
 The second person is a 70-year old man who is using the cultivator in the field. When I was walking, he cultivated the field. I asked him if you would cultivate for such a freezing winter day. He replied that he is doing it to run out the fuel of the tiller. Then he kept telling stories he taught. If you do not value 1 year of life, you will regret with your age becoming not active. Potatoes may not be taken ten times if you don't start now. Every spring, everyone needs to reconsider them all from beginner. If you do not plant seeds, they will not grow up. If you fail something, it is also an important experience. etc.
Last story is a conversation on my walking with people who were cleaning the fallen leaves of the road in a group of five people. I asked them Are you from the center in Chigase ? and if I can make it a friend? A man answered that you can join the company if you go to the Silver Personnel Center. Another man added humorously that there are conditions, however. "Do not be clever and smart . Can you be?" I answered promptly that it would be OK. Later, I thought the answer was boring! It was on the same line. If it were an interview they would not have accepted me to their company. I thought on what kind of answer was good. Probably like this. "I regret to say that I can't because I just have received a Nobel prize! " or "You wish that for me. Stay hungry, stay foolish."

Thank you all, very much.
