So,you might find odd sentences in my writing.

Spanish class
    As I wrote before,I quit the English conversation school lately. Of course I'm continuing to study English even if I quit the school. I had been enjoying English class but after a certain point,I started to feel the conversation school means nothing to me. I liked my teacher and class mates but I thought what I need is having more opportunities of talking with other people. Every time at the lesson I talked with same members,but I don't think it's good for improving my English skill.
    That's why I decided to quit the school and now I'm looking for any other way to improve my conversation skill.

    And now,changing the subject, I started to go to Spanish school from 6 months ago.
    I like studying foreign language and recently I'm really interested in Spain because of soccer. I'd really like to read soccer news or my favorite club's web site in Spanish,and of course I'd love to go to Spain. That's why I started to study Spanish.

      It's been a long time since last time I updated this blog.
      As I wrote before,I've been unmotivated to study English for a long time. But I've been keeping studying English.

      I moved up to the highest level's class about 6 month ago but class mates speak English really well,so I've been feeling hesitate to speak English in front of them.
      Some of my class mates have an experience that they studied English in a foreign country. But I don't have such an experience, I'm always feeling ashamed about my English in my class.

      However,I know I shouldn't be pausing. So,I'll make effort to motivate myself to study English again. I think I can't update this blog frequently. I might be able to update only once or twice a month. But I think keeping doing is really important so I'll keep it up.

      Well,I'll tell you something about my recent events.

      about studying English
        I've been thinking of the way of studying English for a long time. You know,I didn't update my blog since July. Meanwhile,I had been thinking about the way of studying English.

        I noticed that my mind about studying English changed. When I started to study English,I had enjoyed studying English. I used to like to read English books and web sites and also,I enjoyed updating my blog in English.

        But..., somehow,I've not been feeling enjoy studying English for a long time. I don't know why I think so. I can say that my mind that I want to improve my English skill is true and I still like to study English. But now, I think I should change the way of studying English.

        Actually,I'm tired of English lessons. My teacher and class mates are all good people,but I think there's no point if I talk in English with Japanese people at the class. My teacher is a native speaker,but he always speaks slowly and carefully because he is a teacher. His English is really clear and easy to understand. But I think it's impractical. I think I need to get used to the speaking speed of native speakers. I know it's good to go to abroad to study English, but I can't go for some time yet.

        So,I'm looking for something which makes to motivate me to study English.

        I'm sorry, but I may quit this blog.
        If I could find something, I'm going to tell you on this page.

        I'll try Twitter
          I just started Twitter.

          I don't know whether I can keep it for a long time, or not. But I'm going to twitter in English at least once a day because I have no time to update my blog.

          Please follow me and give me some advices!

          The reason I didn't update my blog
            It's been a long time since last time I posted my blog. During that time,I had been thinking of quitting this blog. Because I had been unmotivated to study English.

            Actually,I'm still keeping studying English now. I've been studying English at an English school for four years. I don't mean the school is bad, but I don't feel my English skill is improving. My teacher is really good person,and his lesson is fun. My class mates are also good. But somehow I'm unmotivated.

            I've been thinking why I'm unmotivated to study English. I've been wondering what I want to do. And then,I found the reason. Maybe,I think my goal is too high. I had been wanting to speak English like a native speaker,but I know it's impossible because I'm living in Japan and there's no native speakers around me. I have only one hour a week to speak English at a school.

            My friend living in a foreign country made an offer to have video chatting some times,but I don't have courage. I know I'm inconsistent with what I'm saying. I want to speak English a lot,but I don't have a courage to talk with someone. I want to improve my English skill,but I'm afraid that I might have mistakes in my speaking. I think that's why my English isn't improving. And that's why I'm unmotivated to study English. It's not that I got uninterested in studying English. I think I'm just depressed with myself.

            I'm getting lost in a deep forest but I have to find the way to get out of this forest by myself. I promise you to overcome this problem and will update my blog soon.

            Where is the way out?
              Hi there!
              I guess you're thinking I don't update my blog frequently. Right on! I decided that I update my blog at least once a week,but I can't do that.

              To tell the truth,I've been unmotivated to study English for a long time. I have a lot of things I have to do because there are lots of events in March. So,I've been busy and have no free time. That's why I couldn't study English for a while. So, I guess it's not that I completely lost my vitality to keep studying English. Perhaps,it's only temporary.

              But actually,I can't enjoy studying English lately. I used to enjoy studying English. I used to feel happy when I'm speaking English. But recently,I'm frustrating to my poor English when I talk in English with someone.

              Studying foreign language is really difficult. I think that people who are studying Japanese are having more troubles than me. Because Japanese is really difficult language. Actually,my English skill is improving more than before. But I want to speak fluent English. So, I'm by no means satisfied with my current English skill.

              Anyway,I'm wandering in a dark tunnel named "slump",now. Is there anyone who know where the way out is?

              Update my blog frequently!! But it's difficult...
                I made up my mind to update my blog at least once a week but it's really difficult for me. As you see,I couldn't update my blog at all last week. I don't know why I can't do what I made up my mind to do. I'm getting frustrated with myself. Anyway,I'll update my blog today.

                I'll tell you about my recent favorite,today.
                I've been yearning for English-speaking lands for a long time. I love English so I'd love to go to the US or Canada,England,and so on. I'd like to talk with native speakers and feel different cultures in my bones. But recently,I'm really into Spain. I know Spain is not English-speaking country,but I'd love to go to Spain,now. The biggest reason I want to go is the football league called "La Liga" in Spain. I love football,so I'm really into Spanish football lately. Especially,I'm a big fan of FC Barcelona. Their football is really traditional Spanish football. I like the premier league in England,too. That is a really dynamic,powerful football. But La Liga is a really beautiful football. You can see some spectacular plays in La Liga and would be hooked on it if you like football.

                It's a little bit difficult for me

                  Harry Potter's last story titled " Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows " finally came out! I was really looking forward to read it. Unfortunately,Japanese version of this book is going to be sold next summer,so,most of Japanese can't read the latest story. Of course I bought this book and started to read it last weekend. I read all books of Harry Potter both of Japanese version and English version. Every time a new book came out, at first,I read English version, and after that,I read Japanese version for confirmation. Japanese version always comes out a year later than English version.

                  What is my goal?
                    As you know,I've been studying English. I liked English lessons when I was a student,but I had no opportunities to study English after I graduated. But about three years ago,suddenly I got the urge to study English again and decided to go to English school. The name of my English school is AEON. This is one of popular English schools in Japan. Before I decided a school,I went to some other schools to take a trial lesson. Then I checked about a quality of teachers, schooling fee,and mood in the school.

                    The school I went to at first was really bad. A foreign teacher gave a big yawn during the trial lesson. She seemed to be bored and of course I couldn't enjoy her lesson.

                    The second school was not bad. A foreign teacher was friendly and I enjoyed her lesson. But they had no class in the afternoon on weekday,so I had to take a lesson in the evening. It was not convenient for me and also I was really surprised that schooling fee is expensive. So I gave up going to this school.

                    And the school I went to for the third time was AEON. The teacher giving me a trial lesson was a Japanese man. At first,I thought that I want to take a foreign teacher's lesson. But his lesson was really fun,so I really enjoyed it. And also,he told me that my English skill is enough to take a foreign teacher's lesson. After that,he introduced a foreign teacher to me. She was really friendly and seemed a good person. I thought that I want to take her lesson. So,I decided I study English at AEON.

                    Am I a Otaku?
                      Hola amigos! Como estas?
                      Estoy muy bien.
                      Me gusta aprender ingles y espanol.

                      As I said before,I started to study Spanish lately. I know my English skill isn't good enough,yet,and of course I want to improve more my English skill. My husband told me that before I learn Spanish,I should make more effort to improve my English skill. I know there's some truth in what he says,but actually, I tended to be tired of studying English lately. So,I wanted to do something new. It doesn't mean that I quit studying English. I wanted to do something new rather for improving my English skill.

                      Recently,a new English teacher came to my class. He is from Chicago. When I met him for the first time,I introduced my self,and I told him that I started to study Spanish lately. After that,he suddenly spoke to me in Spanish. I was really surprised. You know,the most popular foreign language in Japan is English. There are so many people who are learning English in Japan. But I rarely hear about people who are studying Spanish. Actually, it's really hard to find a Spanish school or a Spanish teacher in Japan. Therefore,even if I study Spanish hard,I thought there would be no opportunities to speak Spanish in Japan.
