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。

ESSAY:2回目

昨日で39週に入りました。先ほど、おしるしもきてしまい、(ちなみにおしるしはMucous Plugというようです。これでSに通じました。)またもや前駆陣痛がきています。痛いです。といってもたぶんあと2,3日は待たないといけないはずなので、っていうか週末出産は高くつくし麻酔間に合わないのでもう少しまってほしい。。。

今日はMIA1時間、Sと1時間日本語の説明。

日本語の説明とはいえ、”べんきょうする”noun+するの動詞、助詞”で”= in/at/byの説明で、助詞の説明が私にとっては一番難しいため、悪戦苦闘してました。日本語教師じゃないので説明できないときは、一応しらべますが、本当にわからないときは、謝ってます。”よくわからないけどこれがネイティブwayなんだよ。”と。

私も英語について彼に聞くことたくさんありますが、彼も先生じゃないので、”これがネイティブwayなんだよ。”で終わらせます。ま、お互いflexibleにいこう、ということで・・・

Especially these days, sadly, we can clearly see the ※incrementincrease of illegal drugs usage. There might be some reasons, but the main reasons are stated below, which also show the current tendency.

First, the internet should be blamed the most.

Thanks to it, it's gotten much easier for ordinary people to reachobtain illegal drugs.

Thanks to it, it's gotten much easier for ordinary people to illegal drugs.

【!】To reach an inanimate object, means it is close to you, and you are trying to grab it.

Now that it's such a era that every family has at least one pc , so even young people including children can get to illegal drugs without their parents' notice.

Next, Stress must be one of the biggest reasons. Like adults who have to survive the tough time in their companies, young people are also required to be competitive in their society, like schools. Hence, they are full with a lot of stress, which lead them to using drugs.

Lastly, we can't ignore the influence of celebrities. At the risk of sounding exaggerated, we can see the news of arrests of celebrities for the use of illegal drugs almost every week. This can mislead young people to think illegal drugs are not uncommon, not so special.

Needles to say, we can't get rid of these causes from our current lives. Therefore, to keep young people from using drugs, adults like parents and educators have to take the responsibilities as in educating them well.

You can use the word increment here, however that only implies movement, but you've not stated which way:

you can increment things either up or down. "we can clearly see the rising increment of"

However, a more native way of saying this would be: "we can clearly see the increase of illegal drug usage.”

Also, in this case, you only need to specify "drug", instead of drugs.

he uses a lot of illegal drugs.

he buys his drugs at the drug store.

There are many who abuse illegal drugs.

Drugs are illegal to use.

This town has a lot of illegal drug users.

This town has a lot of illegal drug use.

Illegal drug use has risen in our city.

We need to find a way to fight illegal drug use.

"we can clearly see the increase of illegal drug use." is more native than usage in this case also.
