なるほど~。英会話学校って大変ですね。ある程度のレベルになったら、討論などをうまくさせてくれる先生がいないと。10代後半である程度話せると、もう天気や食事の話しだけしてても飽きますよね。仕方ない。  気分転換で、オランダの日本人communityに顔を出してみてはいかがです...

i think being a good listener is as important (if not more important) being a good speaker sometimes. you can learn quite a lot!

日本でさえ、職場で5つ下の子と話していたら話の話題が違ったりしますよね^^; 話に合わせるよりは、文化の違いや新しいことを何か自分の為になることを吸収しようって思ってみてはいかがでしょう? 興味の無い話なら、無理に話しに加わる必要はないと思います。疲れるだけですよね・・...

もしかして私の書いたエントリーを気にされてる? 私が例に用いた人は自慢話がほとんどで、他の人の話にはあんまり関心を持っていないような人でした。だからつまらなかったんです。roppiさんとはむしろ逆の人でした。 少々説明不足でした。すみません。 私も外国で若い人が多...

頼まれて教室を開いたのにそれはないですね。次を開くのを躊躇されてしまうお気持ち分かります。ドタキャンは困るとはっきり言った方がいいですね。 「次回ドタキャンしたら、わさびをなめさせるよ~」とでも脅してみたら?(^0^)

若い人はひとりぼっちになるのをとてもいやがりますね。だからケータイが手放せない。友達は大勢いる人のほうが上等だと思ってる。ほんとうは一人の時間を楽しめる人でないと、みんなといても楽しめないのに。 親友は人生で一人か二人いれば御の字だと思います。 私は50歳をもう過ぎ...

I got married when I was 20. So when I was the age of your classmates, I was just staying at home. I'm more comfortable that way too.

私も以前マレーシアに滞在していた頃、英語学校に通っていました。 生徒はいろんな国から来た人たちで、授業はすべて英語でした。そのとき感じたことは、とにかく日本人は、自分も含めてですが、おとなしい、指されないと話さないです。先生たちはどう対応していいのか困っているようでした。...

Je zegt tegen de mensen. Een, twee, drie, lachen. Of: even naar het vogeltje kijken ( maar dat is al wat meer ouderwets)

こちら日本(富山)は今のところ雪が少ないです。 明日からついに大雪になるようですが。。私はスキーをするので、家族で楽しんでます。ヨーロッパはスキーはしやすい環境ですか?  英語学校、頑張ってください。 私は英語は独学なので気楽にしております。

そうですね~日本人は意見を言うのがへたですね。過剰にわがままを言ったり、そうかと思えば必要なところでだまってしまったり。 おだやかにちゃんと自分の気持ちを伝えるという、一見簡単そうで実は難しいから、訓練が必要だな~と自分の場合も思います。
