Hello everyone. I'm Yumi, a JEEPA certified English coach.
Today in Melbourne, it's cloudy and the temperature is 16 degrees celsius.
Last night, we (me and my husband) went to a Thai restaurant with our neighbors for Christmas dinner.
Since he is a cafe owner, and a chef, he seems to be familiar with good restaurants, so we asked him
to choose a restaurant to go.
They are a lovely couple who are Singaporean and Chinese.
The food was delicious of course. .
Today, I will continue to compare English with Chika's video.
This time, it is American English and British English.
↓ I wrote some examples from it.
|Japanese||American English||British English|
|掃除機 (soujiki)||Vacuum cleaner||hoover|
|バンドエイド (bandoeido)||band aid||plaster|
|ギア (gia)||gear shift||gear stick|
|ポテトチップ (poteto chippu)||potato chips||crisps|
|薬局 (yakkyoku)||drug store||chemist|
|駐車場 (chuushajyou)||parking lot||car park|
I lived in the United States for nine years and in the United Kingdom for one year for my husband's job,
but even in the same English-speaking countries, the feeling was quite different. .. ..
I felt the national character was reflected in the language. .. ..
Language is deep and interesting, isn't it?!
So, that's it for today.
Have a nice weekend, everyone.
