Cram school in elementary school
This is my first experience I started studying English. In my memories, I couldn’t say any words in English.
Cram school in junior high school
I can say this is the strongest memories in my early English. Without this experience, I can’t exist here. This cram school was not only very hard but also very interesting because only by joining this cram school we can learn English very effectively. I think it is not communicative English but it was very nice
English activities in elementary school
I don’t like English and also hate English at that time. What I liked is English activities. Just Activities. By learning English words I was completely bored at that time. Hahaha
English class in junior high school
I had a good time in English class. Thanks to cram school, There is not what I don’t know. I got 100 points in exam!
Conversations with my mother
My mother is not Japanese, Philippines. So she uses Tagalog as L1 and English as L2. At first, I had difficulties to talk with my mother in English, but by talking in English we can express what we think better than Japanese . This was a big motivation
Conversations with my mother’s friends
My mother has many friends because she is catholic. I was send to a church, and talk with her friends so many times
Studying for university exams
This is the worst experience because this was not independent learning. This is the force studying. Here is Japan so I know we have to study English very hard. But what I learn from this study is nothing except for high abilities to scam English grammar and structures
Learning English in university
I got free because my examinations are over! Yeah! This was the first time I read so many Extensive Reading books. This is good but I thought this faculty don’t have many chances to study English
Watching movies with subtitles
I could English with fun and moving pictures. This is good but sometimes I forgot to read subtitles because I focus on stories hahaha.
Studying for English competence
I had studied English for English competencey exam two times. But thanks to studying usually, I don’t know the details.
