What is Life? English as a communication tool(コミュニケーションツールとしての英語)

Good morning everyone. It was very cold and snowing at F city. The winter has just come to Japan. I wish the white Christmas.


Here, the theme is English as a communication tool. As you may know, I had started to show the amazing of Life in both English and Japanese since the end of September. At the first, I made some mistakes on the articles, but I think that English is little easier to show something than Japanese. Of course, I am a merely English user, not a native speaker. So my English may be little primitive for such English users. But I want to show you that English may not have strictly usage to show respecting mind. In Japanese there are many words for such purposes. And also, English may be very simple and directly language compare with Japanese. But, it is just my impression from the work on the company, which I belonged. In the company, there were many foreign researcher. So I also had to be an English user. Although the start was little hard, the experience was very interesting and exciting. I could be grown up at some level.


Please compare two paragraph showed in above. You may be able to find some differences between the two parts. One is English written at first, the other is Japanese translated from E to J. Where did the inequality come from? It may be little difficult for us, because we are just users. But it is little interesting, because the all contents of "What is Life?" were written by my self. What I want to show you at today is such fun. I am sorry that there is no sense at today (^^;).

どうか上の二つの段落を比べて頂けませんでしょうか。おそらく皆様はその二つの段落からいくつかの違いを見つけることができるかと思います。最初は英語で書かれていて、そして、もう一つはその英語を日本語に訳したものです。その差はどこから来たのでしょうね。私たちにはそれは難しいと思います。だって単なる使用者なのですから、。ただ、このWhat is Life?の全ての記事は自分で書いているとは言っても少々面白いものです。本日皆様にお伝えしたかったのはそうした面白さなのです。すみません、今日は内容が無くて(^^;)。 

Today's class is over. Have a nice day. Click the button at the bottom of this "What is Life?", if you are a student of this class. Mind you?

  4. Hey there
    can any individual assist me?
    I would like an absolutely free Mmo that features a a number of gamers plus they (perfectly a lot of them) can converse English. It is vital that the particular servers have a wide range of players. I'm seeking something such as Diablo or World of warcraft. I am in addition not willing to spend any money as I only need a little extra time to destroy now. It is alright if the actual game cost nothing along with premium content. I've got looked a lot for MMORPGs but none from the sites actually say how much people tend to be online.
    appreciate it


Thank you!
