Practice

October 22, 2017

こんばんは〜

仙台のプライベート英会話講師&翻訳者デイブです。

 

今日の話題は:Proverbs

 

今日紹介したいことわざは:

 

Practice makes perfect.

 

非常にシンプルに見えますね。直訳すると「練習すると上手になる」。つまり、「うまくなりたいなら、努力が必要」。今日なぜこの表現を選んだかと言うと、言語の勉強は本当にこういうことなんです。楽に勉強して、そごい上達する人って一人も会っtたことがありません。本当に英語でも日本語でも何でも上達させたいと思っているなら時間も努力がかかると思います。

 

例文:

A: I just can't do this juggling technique!

B: Keep trying and I'm sure you'll get it. Practice makes perfect.

 

C: Why are you still awake?

D: I have my recital tomorrow and I want to do well.

C: Haven't you practiced enough?

D: Practice makes perfect. I'll go to bed soon.

 

E: I'm really bad at mini golf. You guys should play without me.

F: Oh, come one. It'll be fun. Practice makes perfect.
