実際に通じなくて焦るのが
日本で当たり前のように使われている「和製英語」です。

中でも車周りには意外に和製英語が多いようです。

例えば「パンク(Punk)」と言ったら
皮ジャンを着込んで髪を逆立て
大音量でギターをかきならす
威勢のいいお兄さんを思い浮かべられるようです・・・(^^;)
(音声は機械的なもので、実際の人の声ではありませんので
あくまでも参考程度にお聞きください。)

スピードラーニングを私も試してみました

あなたも恐らくCMなどで「聞き流すだけ」でいいと言われても

・本当かな?
・英会話がそんなに簡単なわけがない
・忙しい自分にもできるのかな?
・言ってることがウソだったら嫌だな

という気持ちをもたれているのではないでしょうか?

そんな方のために、私が試聴CDを聞いて感じたこと、この教材が向いている方、向いていない方についてなどの感想をまとめています。よろしかったらどうぞご覧ください。
