Calm Down ~きっかけの言葉~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

息子からのたった一言のメールが英会話学習を始めるきっかけだったと思う。。

I have been studying English about four years.
I could hardly understand English before.
But I decided to learn English after a foreign travel.
The travel was a big challenge for me because I had to get on the plane alone,so I hesitated about the travel plan first.
But a word made me decided to go traveling.
The word, that was "Calm down" in the e-mail from my son.

One day, I sent e-mail to my son many times because I wanted to know if he was safe.At that time,he had gone to somewhere to his first paraglidering camp,and I didn’t have any information about the camp
and no contact from him made me worry.
When my feeling changed to anger from worry,he returned e-mail to me at last,but it was one word, besides only "Calm down" in English.
Why English??!! Then I didn’t know the mean "Calm down".
I looked up the word in a dictionary quickly.
And I realized he grew up and became independent from parents and I also had to become independent from child.
After that I decided to go to San Francisco where my friend lived in.

The travel was so wonderful and greatly excited me.
But I thought I could have had more enjoyable time if I could speak English.
So I started learning English.

Learning English is pleasure for me now.
Yes, I think the beginning was the word " Calm down" from my son.

パラグライダーに出かけたまま連絡がない息子への心配は徐々に怒りへと変わり。。。
やっと届いた息子からのメールは、たった一言”Calm down"(落ち着いてよ)だった。
しかも英語で。。。
この直後、私は、迷っていたサンフランシスコの友人宅への旅に出かけたのでした。
そう、私の英会話学習への道は、親離れしていく息子から上手に子離れするための一つの方法でした。
