私の英語学習歴 ~オンライン英会話講師になるまで~
English Learning History: I started studying English in April, 2001 (at age 16) with an NHK radio English conversation program. I would read aloud every sentence until I could recite it by heart because I really wanted to be able to speak fluently. I took my first Eiken in 2003 (at age 18). I tried my first TOEIC test in 2007 (at age 22) two months after passing the Eiken Grade 2. The score was 560, and I took the test four times afterward. (685[Jan 2010]→755[Sep 2011]→855[Sep 2013]→900[May 2014])

How I Learned English —Until I Became an English Tutor

このブログについて | About this Blog 

I translate Western pop music into Japanese for fun, and I that's what I started this blog for. However, I have recently been posting bilingual articles as well because I wanted to make this blog helpful for those who need information on Japanese life. I have an American friend, who is currently living in Japan, and it seemed that she at times struggled with minor issues due to lack of information in English. For this reason, I started blogging in English as well. You never know what information will be useful to other people, so I try to share anything that I think might be useful.

I changed the blog title "Rojiura Honyaku" to "Yukey Eigo Juku" in Feb., 2021. 

英語学習 | Learning English

写真&カメラ | Photo and Camera

Photography is what I enjoy the most aside from watching motorsports. It is fun to see the world with my camera (Sony a6000). I love taking pictures of flying birds, crazy fast cars, waterfalls, flowers and beautiful landscapes found on this planet. I also blog about my camera and lens from time to time.

日英バイリンガル記事 | Bilingual Posts

I started to bilingualize my blog to make it helpful for foreign people living in Japan and to practice my English writing as well. All of the bilingual posts are corrected/proofread by my American friends, so I hope they are helpful for Japanese English learners as well.
