The result was not very good. But I passed! 😀 Report in detail of my result = total 26/33 points Reading: 4/5 Q & A: 20/25 Attitude: 2/3 My Q and A result was not bad but the attitude score was not good. I had thought if examinees answered something naturally and with a smile, the examiner would give a perfect score for attitude in the 2nd grade interview. Although maybe I was nervous, I think tried to tell the examiner the answer with a smile even if I couldn’t speak fluently. My face looked strained? 😬
The English class after the interview test, my teacher and I celebrated my passing of the 1st test. I prepared a margarita, beer and nuts. As the day was hot, I put some ice in the margarita. My teacher brought a beer, but the beer had 8.4% alcohol. I said, “This class was Breiko~!”
The interview test is over! It was first come first serve. I got there 20 minutes early and was the 2nd examinee in line. I checked in, turned off my smartphone, put it in a bag provided by the staff, and hung it around my neck. I guess to prohibit recording. I have never hung my phone from my neck, so it felt heavy and it was very annoying.Continue reading →
The day came to find out my test result on a website. It was scheduled for 3 pm. Although I had been waiting since the day after taking the test, I didn’t have the courage to look at my result. So, I was thinking of covering the laptop screen with a thin white piece of paper or covering my eyes with my hands when I open the website. I will see it a little and I can be ready to accept reality gradually. Am I a coward?
The test is over! It was exciting …… so I want to write about it.
But actually, I was moping around. I had thought I don’t want to study English anymore.
Lately, I didn’t write on this blog at all. I was studying for the English test, not very hard though… I could have studied harder.
After the test, I thought I would try to write about my feelings, as the days around the test were an emotional roller coaster. I’m embarrassed to write about my feelings, though… I want to learn many varieties of expressions in English.
Before the test I ate healthy meals and didn’t drink any alcohol. I thoughtI was in good shapeand was looking forward to taking the test the next day.
The day of English test My stomach was upsetbefore leaving for the test. A few minutes into the test, my right hand was shaking. “Stop!” I thought. So I changed to writing with my left hand.
Thank you for nominating my blog for this award, Niall O’Donnell! I’m very glad. … but … it seems like a big English assignment from Niall. 🤔 😱 😂
English-Language Thoughts byNiall O’Donnell is a great and interesting blog. This blog is about a lot of things related to the English language. While studying English, sometimes I revisit the same article a few times because it takes me a while to complete it, so I’m happy when it’s interesting! I’m using Niall’s blog as part of my English studies. If you interested in it, check it out! https://englishlanguagethoughts.com/
Lately, I haven’t had enough motivation to study English. So, I was going to make an adventure list in English. But before I did it, I found a movie “Stand By Me” on Amazon video, so I watched it to practice listening to English. I’d watched this movie a long time ago. I’d forgotten the ending of the story but I remembered it was about an adventure by some boys and the songs were quite good. But since I’d watched before I thought I might understand the English in the movie.
After I watched the movie, I thought I really liked it, it is my favorite type of movie.
