The Simpsons x Learning Language

men's fashion men's fashion men's fashion men's fashion men's fashionI remember the days studying English. I heard that one of the best ways to learn language is to immerse yourself in an environment that resembles the place that uses the language you want to learn.

Being in Japan, there aren’t many places that you hear English. Because of this, I decided to rent tons of English TV shows and play them at home so that at least I can be in an environment where I hear English.

The TV shows that I rented? They had to be super easy to understand (animation or kids show) and fun enough to watch multiple times.

Yes, it was The Simpsons! I literally learned speaking/listening to English from The Simpsons. Obviously, I didn’t understand the satire in the show so there were undoubtedly some awkward moments once I started to use English! lol

Because I feel like this TV show gave me the fundamentals of my living here, visiting Springfield in my Simpsons T-shirt and standing in front of The Simpsons wall was a very special experience for me!

This was one of the best days of my life!! :)

Cheers!

英語を勉強するのに一番いい環境は?英語が常に聞こえる環境にいることだと思います。日本ではなかなか作るのが難しい環境ですが、できるだけ長い時間英語を聞く環境を作ることは簡単です。

僕はシンプソンズのテレビショーを大量に借りて、家にいる間はずっとシンプソンズをかけておくことにしました。普段から英語を聞いていたため、初めてアメリカに来た時もあまり動揺することがなかったように思います。(何を言われているのかはよく分からないことが多かったですが…w)

シンプソンズで英語を学んだ僕としては、スプリングフィールドに来てシンプソンズの壁の前で写真を撮ったこの日は最高の日でした!

Cheers!
