フィリピン留学11週目 トピックはコーヒーについての巻

今日はトピックの日です。コーヒーについて話すことにしました。なるべく短いセンテンスで、わかりやすく伝えやすい言葉を探します。覚えなければならないのが大変ですが、作文をすることとしゃべることがいっぺんにできるので好きなレッスンの一つです。

Coffee beans are green when they are ripe and only turn brown after being roasted.
This process removes much of the water from the beans, causing them to shrink.
It takes around 50 coffee beans to make one cup of coffee.
Over 2 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day, making it the second most traded commodity in the world after oil.
Global trade in coffee is worth $70 billion a year.

The Philippines has been growing coffee since the 17th century, when the Spanish colonialism planted the first coffee plantations in Batangas.
Batangas is famous for its coffee; BARAKO COFFEE but sadly, it was destroyed by plant sick and insects in first 19th century. The people growing another kind of coffee again and it using for instant coffee nowadays.
Kape Alamid is one of the most expensive coffee. If you want to drink it in japan, you’ll pay $20 to $50 for a cup. but I’m just not sure if it’s worth it or not.

In the village of Cebu where the beans are grown and breed of wild tree cat.
These cats eat the beans, digest them, and then poop.
The people collect it and manufacture it.
It is the combination of the beans and gastric juices of the tree cat that makes kape alamid.
Its known for its unique flavor and aroma.

パーフェクトとはいきませんが、結構できた方です。1年前を振り返ればずいぶん進歩したと思います。最初の段落は1年ほど前から練習してきた文なのでスラスラですが、後の段落は今日考えたものなので詰まってしまいました。次回はもう少し上を目指します。
アメリカンアクセントのレッスン
ついに覚醒か?と勘違いするほどすんなりアメリカンアクセントのレッスンが進みます。なぜか全然わかりませんがとってもスムースです。自分で言っているのに自分でないみたいな不思議な感覚です。言葉が明瞭で全然モアモアしません。ごく稀にこんな日があります。でも、それは長続きしません。霧のようにさっとどこかへ行ってしまうんです。

 

昨日のブログを直してもらえました。僕の実力はこんなものですと言うのがわかってもらえる思います。それでもこれだけのことを書けるようになった自分をほめる気持ち半分、情けなさを学ぶ意欲に変える気持ち半分です。

What happens on my blog???? There is a lot of people who read my blog!!! I haven’t seen that. I feel happy, shy, and afraid of something. I don’t know what should I do in this case. First I have to say thank you for everything.

Thank you very very much to those who read my blog. I write my blogs not only in Japanese, but as well as in English today. However, I can’t write it well, I’m sorry.

I’m studying with really really good teachers at EB in The Philippines. When I came here I couldn’t speak English well. But now, I understand what people say and I can have conversations to people but it still not enough. Well I enjoy to study English. I appreciate my teachers.

I’m going to Canada to start my trip around the world by motorcycle. Now, many people help me. I’ll try to do lots of new things. But I want to enjoy my trip most importantly. Also, I want to see many people and learn a lot. I don’t know what can I do. But I hope this blog can help anyone who needs information from me.
