My life and language study in Colombia/ コロンビアでの生活と語学勉強

September 30, 2017 — Leave a comment

Last 1 month of my daily routine in weekdays was I wake up about 7 in the morning, go to the school, come back to the house 4 or 5. Then prepare dinner with my host family and have dinner about 6. After that, from 7 to 10 or 11 for 3 to 4 hours until I sleep is my free time. Basically I study in the free time.

My style to spend time on the weekends, I mostly sleep until 10am, then doodling for a while. And lunch time comes up and have lunch. After lunch, I usually take a little nap. And then study, have dinner, and study again. When I have free time, I either sleep or study.

Sometimes my host family asks me why I don’t go out on weekends, and just sleeping a lot. But I don’t think I’m sleeping a lot. I can say I’m sleeping quite enough though. These days I just wanna relax at home, when I don’t have a class. I guess I would be busier next year, so I prefer to sleep enough while I am not so busy yet. That’s my recent style.

My way of learning language ​​is as simple as studying English before. I anyway watch movies and TV series on Netflix over and over only in Spanish. My recent favourite is Narcos. I have just watched 2 laps so far.

Other studies, I memorize verb conjugation and words.

Speaking of my Spanish level so far, I feel it’s getting better than the first week. Somehow I can understand what people are saying, and also I can tell at least what I want to say. But still a lot times, I can’t understand what people are talking at all by topics. Still long way to be much better.

The best result is I can be following word by word in listening what people are saying. So I could know what words I don’t understand. So I can review later. So I think it’s the best progress of study so far.

ここ1ヶ月のコロンビアでの生活は、平日は朝7時頃に起き学校に行き、4時か5時頃帰宅。そこからホストファミリーと一緒に夜ごはんの支度をし、6時頃夕食。夜7時頃から就寝の10時か11時頃までの3、4時間はフリータイム。フリータイムは基本勉強。
週末の過ごし方は、基本10時頃まで寝る。起きて少しダラダラすると昼食。昼食の後は大体昼寝をし、その後は勉強、夜ごはん、勉強。時間がある時は、寝るか勉強のどちらか。
よくホストファミリーなどから、何でお前は外に出ないでそんなに寝てばかりいるんだと言われるけど、特にそんなにずっと寝てる訳ではないし、今はクラスが無い時は家でゆっくりしていたい。来年からきっともっと忙しくなるから、今は寝れる時は寝る。それが最近の僕のスタイル。
僕の語学勉強の仕方は英語の時と同じでシンプル。とにかくNetflixで映画、テレビシリーズをスペイン語のみで見まくる。最近のオススメはNarcos。今2周したところ。
あとは動詞の活用形と、単語をひたすら暗記。
1ヶ月経っての語学力は、最初の週よりかは確実に上がってる。何となく人の言ってる事も分かってきたし、自分も、簡単にだけど言いたいことは言えるようになってきた。それでも話のトピックによっては全く理解できない事の方が多いから、まだまだ先は長い。
でも1番の成果は、スペイン語を聞いて単語を終えるようになったから、どの単語がわからないのか自分でわかるようになってきたのは1番の成果かな。
