私がお勧めするサイトは”The Charlie Rose Show“です。

このサイトではアメリカの人気インタビュー番組”The Charlie Rose Show”の過去の主要なインタビューの音声をリアルプレ-ヤ-で聞くことが出来ます。インタビューの相手は、政治家、俳優、スポーツ選手など多伎に渡っていて、様々な英語を聞けるのが良いです。

このサイトはNew York Timesのウェブサイトの1つです。

ここでは様々な種類のビデオが見ることができます。その中でも特に私がお勧めなのが”The Minimalist”です。これは”Style”というカテゴリーの中にあります。The Minimalistは料理番組で、1人のおじ様が料理の仕方を教えてくれます。彼はデザートからパスタ、メインディッシュ、サラダ、オードブルなどいろんな種類のメニューをやってくれるので、とても面白いです。でも、彼はいつも材料の分量をちゃんと言わないので、もし作ってみたい場合は、とても注意してみる必要があります 。また、このサイトは英語なので、リスニングの練習にもなります。The Minimalist以外にも、自分の興味のあるビデオが見つかると思います。特に、左側にあるカテゴリーを使うと簡単に探せます。とっても面白いのでぜひ試してみてください!

This site is one part of New York Times website. In this site, you can watch various kinds of videos, and what I recommend the most is “The Minimalist”. It’s in the Style section. The Minimalist is a cooking video which one guy teaches us how to cook. It’is very interesting because he deals with many kinds of menus such as desserts, pasta, main dishes, salads, or hors d’oeuver. However, he always doesn’t say specific amounts of ingredients, so you have to watch the videos carefully if you want to try to cook them. Also, this site is in English, so it’s good for the listening practice! Except for The Minimalist, you can find the videos that you might be interested in, and it would be easier if you use the categories on the left side. I’m sure  you enjoy this site!!

  • Be careful about the influenza, it is spreading quickly in Tokyo.
  • First Year students have to go to the ceremony on May 1.
  • First Year TOEIC test on May 8 (Friday) in the afternoon.

Welcome!

In earlier days, a group of students might have made a school newspaper. Another group may have had projects or things to discuss about their school. This blog is the electronic version of this. We hope to post information for students about the department. This is to build a learning community. Students and teachers will become invovled with this project, and those opinions expressed here are theirs, and not of Showa Women’s University or English Language and Communication.
