Blogs of Note

I understood the reason for too many visit. My blog was introduced on "Blogs of Note". Some comments told me that.
But I can't believe, because I opened here nearly a month ago.

By the way, I love "The catcher in the Rye" written by J.D.Salinger. I'd read the Japanese version 5 times. After that, I wont to read it in the original, I bought it a few years ago. But it was too difficult to me. And also now.

On the comment, some people gave me advices that I should to read many books for grammar learning. Yes, I'm going to try it! Someday, I'll be able to read "The catcher in the Rye".

I really thank for your advices. I love you!

可愛いです! I only read "Catcher in the Rye" recently. It's very good. Good luck with your English.

@ CatsLoveChoc "The catcher in the Rye" it's a novel which has become a part of High school and college curricula throughout the English-speaking world; it has also been translated into almost all of the world's major languages.

@ Is My English Strange :-And well you trying good efforts to make up sentences to read correct.

Jollies !!!!

Leffy said...

It's so good :D
I've never read that book^^

May I recommend The Book Thief? That is what I'm reading now ;D

@ CatsLoveChoc Feeding chocolate to cats is bad. They can't metabolize it and it can send them into shock, or even kill them. As for Catcher in the Rye, it's on most high school reading lists in the US, as it's considered a classic. I don't think I ever read it though. I wound up reading more boring things like Of Mice and Men and The Great Gatsby.

"The Catcher in the Rye" is a good read. I remember it being an easy read, so it would probably be a good measurement for your success in learning English.

I think you're learning English fairly well. I can understand what you're trying to communicate and that's the key thing. Keep it up.

Maybe you should look at reading some children's books in English. The story might not entertain you, but they'll start off simple and you can build upon that.

"I understand why there were so many visitors. My blog was introduced on "Blogs of Note". Some of the comments told me that.

By the way, I love "The Catcher in the Rye," written by J.D.Salinger. I've read the Japanese version 5 times. After that, I want to read it in the original-- (or a semi-colon) I bought it a few years ago. But it was too difficult for me than, and still is now.

Regarding the comments, some people advised me that I should to read many grammar books. Yes, I'm going to try it! Someday, I'll be able to read 'The Catcher in the Rye.'

I really thank for your advice. I love you!"

I don't know how helpful this is to you. Learning English can be difficult--I've tutored ESL before for a few years and had quite a bit of trouble explaining the nuances of the language. However, as always, practice whenever possible and ask as many questions as you can.

I think your blog is a sucess because of the title you have selected and because of the things that you write...they are simple, original and yet to nice to read.
Keep up the good work

(P.S. I like the photos you have uploaded, did u click them?)

If you like "Catcher in the Rye" you might like "Nine Stories" by JD Salinger.
It is a collection of short stories. Maybe easier to read through in English? Salinger is very good at writing conversations in English - maybe good help?

bing said...

this is a good start to learn the language.

like the the title of your blog. very interesting.

Yes, I like "The Laughing Man" in it.

Brigette said...

Catcher in the Rye is an amazing book. I hope you accomplish your goal of reading the original someday soon!

Hi there,
One thing that helped me when I was trying to learn Spanish was to watch some of my favorite movies in Spanish. It is a lot easier to understand what is going on when people are acting too! Good luck!

Tinkerbella Rose said...

Actually... I have to say your English is really good!!!! You should teach me Japanese!!! It's always been one of the languages I've wanted to learn. I will offer you a tip though... just remember that the English language is what I like to call "over detailed" In other words, you aren't saying some words when you should be, but you get the main point across and people who read your blog understand you perfectly!!! Good Job!!

Hey! I also found your blog bacause of blogs of notes. I think this is interesting because I don't speak English either (well, it is not my own language). I am Mexican, therefore my Spanish is better than my English or Japanese. xD I will start the university this fall, and I will study English Literature. I've been reading a lot of books that they told me to lately. At first it does seem hard, but then, once you get acquainted with the grammar and stuff, it grows on you. I also tell you this because the long list of English novels that they told me to read includes "The Catcher in the Rye"! How cool?? I haven't got to it yet, but it looks interesting. ;) And being that you recommend it, I am more eager to read it... your English is not as bad, by the way. You need to work a little with some words that you don't need to use, but it's pretty good.

Cheers from Mexico!

"too many visits" not "too many visit"
but still sounds "bad"

"I understood the reason for too many visit"
would be better as "I understand the reason for so many visitors"

Marianne said...

Wow!!! Congrats. Your a newbie yet your blog become blog of notes.

tamara hellgren said...

I was going to say the same thing that "Englishman in I.E." said:

"too many visit" implies that you want fewer visitors.

a better way to say it is: "Now I understand why I had so many visitors"

Instead of: "But it was too difficult to me. And also now."

A better way: "But it was too difficult for me. And it still is."

Congratulations on having the courage to blog in a foreign language! I'm sure you'll learn very quickly this way!

I like your blog!
The Catcher in the Rye is one of my very favourites, too.
I am an ESL teacher and I have a blog about fun ways of learning English, you might want to check it out:
I recommend you to have a look at the posts on reading, and NOT WORRY ABOUT GRAMMAR too much, because always worrying about grammar prevents a lot of learners from communicating.
You are doing a nice job!

Elizabeth A. said...

It seems you're doing a great job in your efforts. It does seem your biggest problem lies in your verb usage. The subject needs to match the verb. Just work on your conjugating a little, but you're already well on your way.

I also think watching movies and shows really help with the flow in your head.

This is such a great idea for a blog!

MAKO said...

Hi,nice to meet you.I'm writing my blog in English's poor,but you're so fine.

I love "The Catcher in the Rye" too.It's awesome.Have you ever read another his works?
I recommend "Franny and Zooey".

If you have time,please check my blog.You can see some photos and read my soliloquy.

I think it could help you a lot if you start your english reading by reading teen novels. They are usually a lot easier while still more challenging for the english beginners. I advanced my english further this way. Slowly progress your way through the easier teen novels into harder and more classic novels.

nie ma sie z czego smiac said...

Well I had the same problem with reading "The catcher in the Rye". But Polish version is not very well translated. So I decided to push myself to read the original. Through first 20 - 30 pages I had serious problems with catching the plot and what is going on in the book. But after going further this first pages something clicked in my brain (like "click" that sound) and suddenly I started to understand most of the book. So in my opinion it is important to keep on reading even if you don't understand a lot.
Nice blog by the way :D

Gabriela said...

Hey! You're doing very well with your English, although I'm not a native speaker of the language, I'm still learning it too. I'm from Brazil and I want to become better!
Good luck (:

"I wont to read it in the original."

It should be, "I want to read it in the original format."

Keep up the good work!!!
