Passing through the first gateway

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 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 cowardly lion found her heart

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?

Walking the line

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 thought I was in good shape and was looking forward to taking the test the next day. 🙂

The day of English test
My stomach was upset before 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 by Niall 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!

Stand by for my next adventure!

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.

Happy anniversary to me!

One year has passed since I started writing this blog. 🎉   This is the first time I’ve been able to continue posting on a social network for a long period of time. So far, although I’ve had several social network accounts, I couldn’t continue them. Because it always became a pain in the butt after a few posts.
