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 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?
Lately, I sometimes negotiate with my teacher. Because my teacher was busy and our classes were not as frequent as usual. One day he completely forgot a class, being so tired. It was the first time, though. But he needed to give me five free classes. After that, my teacher frequently canceled English classes. Finally, my teacher said….
“I’d like to apologize for my flakiness and for being untrustworthy last week. My excuse is that I was very busy, but things should be back to normal now.”
My teacher: 😱”How many free classes do you want?”
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.
I’m going to ask you to draw some things.
Get a pen and some paper.
- Draw a house
- Draw a chimney
- Draw a pond
- Draw an animal
You are traveling on a long journey with five animals.
The five animals are a donkey, a cat, a wolf, a cow and a raccoon.
But you have some troubles in the middle of the journey, and you have to say “goodbye” one by one to each of the animals.
Which order do you say goodbye to animals?
I will take an English test, which is called Eiken. This test is a popular English test in Japan. Eiken has 2 types of tests. The 1st test is writing and listening. The 2nd test is an interview in English, which involves speaking, listening and reading comprehension. If we pass the 1st test, we can take the 2nd test one month later.
