    英会話ができない、と言っている人の謎

    中学英語の授業は英語で 2020年度からというニュースに相変わらず色々言っている人が多いわけですね。

    色々言っている人の中に「先生は英会話ができないからダメだ!」と言ってる人がいるんですよ。「英会話ができない!!」じゃなくて、そもそも読めない、書けない、なんじゃないですかね。。。。なんで会話の話になっちゃうんだろう。

    先生が英語的なロジックでペーパー書く方法なり、論文の読み方なり、英語的な流れで議論する方法なり、同僚に依頼のメール書く方法なり、謝罪の手紙をばっちり書く方法を教えることができるのかね、ってことですよ。無理だろ。英検準一級すら受かんないんだから。あんな中学生でも受かるレベルの試験。

    日本て学生さんも大人も「英会話ができなきゃ!できなっきゃ!」と騒ぐ人がいるんですよ。英会話学校って謎の学校がありますね。でも実は「会話」って一番難しいんですよ。連載とか書籍で詳しく書いてますけど、だって、テレビの内容とか近所の話題とか、相手と通じるギャグとか、スポーツとか時事問題とか、相手と通じる共通の知識がなくっちゃ、「会話」は無理なんですよ。特に雑談。

    そういう知識をゲットするには、聞き取れて、読めて、書けないと無理なんですよ。大人なんだから話すのは挨拶とお天気の話じゃないんですよ。必要なのは。相手から笑いとって、時にはおべっか言って、同僚を懐柔して、嫌がる家族にゴミ捨て行かせるトークなのよ。日本語と同じだよ。

    仕事とか専門の話は楽なんですよ。話す内容決まってるから。金がかかってるから、相当アレな感じでもお互い真剣に話し聞きますし。

    「会話が、会話が!」と叫んでるアホウな人は、実務やったことないし、外国にも住んだことがないんでしょう。

    あと、英語で英語を教えるのは最高だ、その辺のネイティブ連れて来て今すぐやれと言っている人も大バカだと思いました。その辺のネイティブって、母国で仕事がなくって、本なんか全然読まないドアホウも含むんですよ。ギロッポンに湧いているゴミみたいな人々。あれに時給5000円払って「今日は天気です」とか言われて英語ができる様になるわけねえっぺ。バカがうつるだけだよ。マトモな人はその辺歩いてないんだって。ちゃんと専門家になる勉強してるから、安い金じゃ働かないですよ。

    まずは自分で英語なりロシア語なりを、その言葉だけで説明受けて流暢になってから「これナイスアイディア!」と言うべきでしょうね。

    中学英語を英語で教えるべきか?


    中学英語の授業は英語で 2020年度からというニュースが話題になっています。

    文科省のグローバル化に対応した英語教育改革実施計画にそった施策らしいんですが。

    いやあ、でましたね、グローバル!なんかかっこいいな、グローバル。グンゼのブリーフ着用したガイジンさんが「グローバル★」と叫んでる図が目に浮かびました。

    はっきり言いましょう。失敗します。理由。

    1.英語で英語を教えられる先生がいない

    文科省、そもそも中学校の先生がの英語力を「英検準1級」に到達する様にするって言ってるんですよ。それって中学生でも突破可能なレベルなんですよ。先生を今からどうやってトレーニングするのか。そもそも、英語を英語で教えるって、ネイティブの人でもかなり訓練積んでないと無理なわけです。「へろーういーはわゆー」な人がどうやって文法やら色々教えるのか。謎です。

    2.効率悪すぎ&生徒は意味不明で沈没

    外国語学ぶ時、初心者は母国語か、流暢な外国語で習った方が絶対に効率がいいです。なぜか。最初にその言葉のルール(文法等々)を母国語で理解した方が早いんです。ルールわかんないと、読めないし、書けないし、しゃべれませんので。基礎の基礎がわかんないとコーディングできないのと同じですって。

    これ実体験。

    ワタクシはイタリアにいる時にイタリア語でイタリア語を学ぶ、スペイン語でスペイン語を学ぶというのをやりました。職場で受けなければならなかったトレーニングがそういうのしかなかったんです。で、初回から見事に落ちこぼれ状態でしたよ。そもそも先生が「このページを開け」と言っているのがわからない。宿題も「どれが宿題なのかわからない」。文法とか用法の説明もわかんないの。だって、「前置詞」とか「動詞」が聞き取れない、黒板に書かれても意味が分かんない(涙)

    周囲のラテン語圏とか英語圏の人々はそれでも意味が分かるからドンドン進んじゃって、ワタクシみたいのと、イラク人とか中国人は取り残されてんの。全員国際機関職員で、英語ベラベラなんだから、英語で教えてくれと叫びたかったですよ。

    というわけで、電子辞書を引きながらなんとかでてましたけど、いや〜辛かった。しかも効率が異様に悪かった(涙)アメリカにいる時に英語で中国語を勉強したことがあったんですけど、全然効率が良かったです。

    英語なら英語のみで教えるって、生徒の集団に共通言語がない場合は仕方がないんですけど、生徒がおんなじ言葉を喋る場合は本当に効率悪いです。

    3. 経費ばっかりかかって効果なし

    多分役所はドンドン予算を請求するつもりなんでしょう。先生の研修とかガイジンの先生を招聘するとかで。今より経費がかかりますわな。沢山予算があるのはいいことだ!もっと人もいる。もっと天下り先も必要。やった、万歳!

    4.結果、格差が広がる

    恐らくですけど、親にお金があって、やる気もある生徒は学校の外の英会話なり塾なりに通って、マトモな先生から日本語で基礎をみっちり学んで、会話とか書きは、ちゃんと訓練受けたネイティブの先生から学ぶ様になるでしょう。

    公立にいる生徒はグダグダの説明でよけいにわけがわからなくなり、英語悪化、海外から適当につれてきた学生に毛が生えた様なネイティブの先生(バイト感覚)と歌とか歌うだけで全然うまくならない、という状況になることが予想されます。そして余計に英語が嫌いになる。いいスパイラルだな。

    5.多分病欠と早期退職が増える

    「英語で英語教える何て無理だわ〜!!!」という方々は、度重なる研修要求や、試験受けろのプレッシャーで、病気ということで長期間お休みされたり、早期退職するかもしれませんね。

    あ、もしかしたら、早期退職が目的なのかもね。要するに人減らしか。

    ま〜心配な人は、お子さんには頭を使って銭かけずに自習しなさい、というのが良いかもしれないですね。銭かけて良い先生から教えてもらうのが一番早いんだけど、誰しも銭があるわけじゃないんで。

    以下自習の方法。ワタクシって親切だからまとめておきましたぜ。

    ちなみに、以下自習で最も大事なことは、文法も単語も例文も全部暗記してしまうことです。暗記のやり方は人それぞれなんですけど(広告の裏に殴り書きでもいいんだけど)覚えないと無理です。漠然とラジオとか何とかラーニングとか聞いてても無理だから。楽してやろうなんてあり得ないから。ダイエットとかマラソンと同じだよ。

    それから毎日やること。毎日やらないと忘れちゃうから。でもできない人が殆どなんですけどね。そのぐらいのことすらできないから仕事も私生活もダメなんですよ。真面目さも根性ないんだもん。どうせ、本棚には自己啓発本とスピリチャル本が一杯なんですよ。そんで「一日一分英語」みたいなゴミ本も並んでるの。一生本棚眺めながらダメ人間やってるといいですよ。

    Project Background:

    Dio Software is planning to establish a Call Centre in Deli, India.

    This Call Center must provide service 24 hrs per day and 365 days per
    day. The agents pick up calls from UK customers of Dio Software and
    provide customer support service to instruct how to use the software,
    how to fix the problems, and how to reset the password of the
    software.

    An Agent must provide a diagnosis of the issues that the users have based on the
    manuals made by Maharaja Corp. If the agent cannot solve the users'

    issues, they escalate calls to engineers of Dio Software. The agents
    provide support in 5 languages, including English, French, Japanese,
    Chinese, and German.

    To manage the call log, the agent is required to use a Call Management
    System and Dio Software vendor managers will be provided full access
    of the software.

    The project is to start January 15, 2011. The Call Centre is installed by
    March 10, 2011 09:00 GMT and starts full operation by 25 March 2011.
    You want to receive the project progress report every 2 weeks. When the call
    centre service is started, you want to receive the service status

    report every month to see the performance of the agents, and the list
    of the requests from the customers.


    The project budget of Dio Software has not been decided. This is the
    first time for the company to hire an external company. As Dio Software
    is a Japanese company, only 3 managers speak English. None of the engineers
    speak a language other than Japanese. Dio Software is planing to provide

    information required to install this services but due to the workforce
    constraints, only 10% of a document can be provided to Maharaja Corp.

    There is no escalation process in Dio Software as it is a start up
    company and people work in a flexible environment.

    Dear Neighbours,

    I would like to invite you to a tea party on this Saturday at 3PM in our garden at 22 Acacia Avenue. A selection of teas and light refreshments will be served. In particular, there will be Victoria sponge cake, chocolate gateau, coffee and walnut cake, as well as a wide range of sandwiches and salads. The selection of sandwiches will include, beef, tuna, egg, salmon and cucumber fillings. Additionally, vegetarian and vegan sandwiches will be served.

    My family and I have only recently moved in to our new house. We previously lived in Tokyo, Japan. My name is Yuki and I am a housewife. I was born and grew up in Tokyo, Japan. My family consists of my husband Jozef and our four childen. Jozef is originally from Poland, and he works as a yoga instructor. We have two sons, Ivan and Boris who are seven and five years old. They were adopted from Moscow, Russia. We also have two daughters, Hanako and Tula who are nine and six years old. Hanako is my daughter from my previous marriage. We adopted Tula when she was a baby, and she is from India. My husband and I spent two years doing voluntary work in Bombay/Mumbai.

    We will have more than enough food available so all that you need to bring to the tea party is yourselves. You are also welcome to bring along your friends.

    We hope that the sun shines on Saturday. However, the weather forecast is not good. If it rains we will hold the tea party indoors in our conservatory and kitchen.

    My family and I hope that you will be able to come to the tea party, and we look forward to getting to know you.

    Kind Regards,


    Yuki Tanaka

    ■サンプル回答アドバイス 初級

    Some points for us all from the first assignment.

    We assume that we do not know the names of the neighbours. Thus, it is best to start the invitation with ‘Dear Neighbours’.

    Once you have been introduced to the neighbours you will be on first name/Christian name terms and all future letters will involve you using them. Thus, if the neighbours are called Tom and Sally Smith a future letter would simply begin, ‘Dear Tom and Sally’.

    The neighbourhood is the place/location where you live. The people who live there are called your neighbours.

    ‘Neighbours’ is the English spelling and ‘neighbors’ is the American spelling. There are a lot of words which differ according to English or American spelling and over the course we will introduce you to a lot more examples.

    In ending this invitation you can opt for a few types of endings. One possibility is to use ‘Kind Regards’. This is also an ending which can be used to end emails to friends and family and also business emails as well. That is a very useful ending.

    You could also use the expression ‘Best Regards’ as well, but ‘Kind Regards’ works better. The word ‘Best’ is usually combined with ‘Best Wishes’ and is a greeting included to end many Birthday cards in England.

    In the invitation the tea party will be taking place in your garden. In America the back garden is called a ‘yard’, or a ‘back yard’. The majority of houses in England have gardens. Gardens are usually larger in the suburbs of towns and cities, and gardens are larger away from towns and cities.

    In the assignments there are obviously going to be ones which are fiction, and require the use of the imagination.

    In this assignment there was a need to come up with some fictional names for all six members of the family. There is also a need to come up with a little information about each person – for the children, how old are each of them, and where are they originally from?

    In this type of assignment you need to indicate a fictional place where the family lives, so that the neighbours know where the tea party is going to take place.
