“The problem with trouble” というテーマのエッセイを読みました。内容は所謂カタカナ英語を間違って使われた時に先生の方が少し恥ずかしい(ドキドキした)思いをしたという事例もあ書かれていて楽しく読める内容でした。今一度、普段何気に使っているカタカナ英語をちゃんと確認してみて下さい。

In order to address these “katakana” problems, I ask my students to pay attention to katakana words. I ask them to check the spelling, check what type of word it can be (an adjective, noun or verb), check whether it’s English, check its pronunciation, and then make a sentence. I call this procedure STEPS (Spelling; Type; English; Pronunciation; Sentence).

So, while a katakana word almost got my student into some trouble, there is at least one solution you can try (not “challenge”). I hope it will help with any communication problems. Good luck! (Not “fight”).

今日の語彙;to deal with, loan word, work in, a quick image search, equations, the tip of the iceberg, consent, get intimate with, a sigh of relief, power outlet, socket, look up,

Thank you for joining to my lesson today. Have a nice weekend!
