Lang-8 英語を書く練習にお勧めです

ラング8って皆さん、活用したことありますか? このサイトでは、登録してエッセイを書くと、その言語のネイティブが修整してくれます。お礼にという感じで、日本語を勉強している人のエッセイを直してあげるといいのです。 無料でです(有料コースもあるみたいです)。 まず書いてみて、間違ってみて、それを修整する過程で、文法を勉強していく。もう中学高校と英語を勉強した日本人には、最高の勉強方法です。 昨日、こんなエッセイをスペイン語で書きました。すると、5人ぐらいの人がすでに直してくれています。 Engles y Espanyol me parecen que estan muy similares. No tengo el tiempo par estidiar Espanyol, pero yo torato…

    It is really cool you can do this. I am sooo proud of you!

    I think she said:
    Kicking the guy in the clutch all morning really takes it out of you.

    I am not sure either what clutch means (maybe tsue, the type of tsue you use when you cannot walk???). I think “takes it out of you” means sutoresu wo hassan suru?

    But you are right and this is THE point. Even though I was not exactly sure what she meant by the guy in the clutch, but I was able to follow the story line without any interruption. She is basically saying that she enjoyed the self-diffence class she took.

    Good job!

  2. Thanks for the advice. I’ll try the u_ sound. That’s one of the mistakes I tend to make and don’t realize unless someone points out. I’ll keep that in mind.

    And somehow I thought it was “takes it alotta you”, which is how I actually repeated. But after I checked that again, it turned out to be exactlly what you said. It’s “takes it out of you”

    Because of the mistake, I was kinda wondering what that meant. But after all your explanation, it all seem quite natural.

    Thanks as always:)

  3. Hi Hiro, someone (nodo practitioner… thanks!) emailed me and pointed out that it was actually “crotch.” True, I listened to the skit again and it was “crotch.”

    It now all makes sense. She went to a self-defence class and learned to kick a guy in between legs. So this is kind of funny because it sounds like a joke but it probably is what she did. So this is what she said:

    Kicking the guy in the crotch all morning really takes it out of you.

    And in Japanese, it should mean something like:
    Gozen chuu ippai okoto no kokan wo keru renshu surunomo tsukareru no yone~~~

    “groin” to iu kotoba mo tsukau sou desu. 

  4. inch it also reestablish in your thoughts in regards to the time I ran into my better half.
