英語学習奮闘記

4歳児と1歳児双子娘の育児と英語勉強両立。英検1級。

The Help 読破!

The Help読み終わりました。一応ある程度難しいといわれているこのPB、読みきれてよかったです(涙 

意味不明なところ結構ありましたけどね。。。なんだか期待していた終わり方じゃなかったけど、良かったです。最初本当に面白くなくて、giveしようと何度も思ったけど続けてよかった・・・

退職してからは、それまで7:30-8:00からだったパートナーSとの会話を9:00-10:00にシフトチェンジして頑張ってます、といっても英語で会話は40分ほど。金、土、日はプラス30分です。そして当面の目標は今よんでるnewsweekを読みきること、そして次の多読本にうつること。

Finally, I finished reading "the HELP". In the beginning, this book was nothing but boring.

There were many words I didn't know, its command of the language was difficult, and at first, the speedof story's progress was very slow. What's more, mostly it was written with a characteristic black's accent in that era, which made it tougher.

I almost gave it up in the middle, but I didn't.

I almost gave it up halfway through, but I didn't. <--- more native.

What made me continue reading was 2 factors.

The one was a great number of good book reviews. Looking through Amazon Japan , a lot of people left good comments on this book. Hence, I was really curious about the story. I really wanted to know the end.

THe other was my unyielding spirit. Everytime I was about to throw in the towel, I asked myself, how come I couldn't finish it while others could do?

Giving up here meant I admitted my reading skill was lower than

others who were able to finish it. I didn't like to be a loser.

Anyhow, accomplishingfinishing this book made me a bit confident.
