心にしみる歌
2013-05-28 14:23

My French teacher brought me the lyrics of one of the famous chansons, "Parole de Comme D'habitude". It was sang by Claude Français and Michel Sardou in French, later it became " My way" in English, as the US record company bought the rights to use the music. About the French version, the words to the song are very sad. …The husband ignores his wife when she embraces him on bed in the morning. The couple feign love, go through the motions and make love in the evening as if it were their duty. According my French teacher, it is so wistful that most French people sobbed when they listened to the song for the first time.(2013.8.3)
“マイウエイ”がアメリカで歌われるようになる前はフランスの曲で、その歌詞が全く違っていることは知りませんでした。愛がなくなってしまった夫婦が惰性で暮らす様子、切ない気持が伝わってきます。

懐かしい曲

My son asked me if I had a CD of American songs, a collection of "Simon & Garfunkel. He seemed to be surprised when I handed it to him immediately, because I usually take time to find stuff. Fortunately, I kept it in the same pace so that I wouldn't lose it. The CD was given to me by my former American teacher a few years ago whose father is in my generation. Anyway I am a little curious why he wanted to listen to it suddenly. (2013.7.27)
珍しく息子が洋楽のCDを持っていないかと聞いたので、迷わずサイモンとガーファンクルの曲集を出しました。息子がそれが聞きたかったと言った時、無くさずに持っていてうれしかったです。一昨年まで私のプライベートティーチャーだったアメリカ人の人からもらったもので大事にしていました。

My car battery went dead recently. I called the car service company to tow my volkswagen to my house, and I didn't have it repaired. I have only driven 20000 kilometers in 12 years, and it is still clean, but I decided to buy a new one. All my language teachers said that I should change the battery so that I still can drive another 5 more years or so, it's a shame to let my car go for such a small price and so on. I have ignored their advice and ordered a brand new car and paid for it yesterday.(2013.10.20)
12年乗ったワーゲンを新しく買い替える事にしました。20000kmしか乗ってないし、見たところまだきれいなので、バッテリーを交換して暫く乗ろうか、、またワーゲンの前に10年間乗っていたゴルフにしようか迷ったあげく、同じワーゲンを注文しました。一昨年モデルチェンジしたので、少しスタイルは違いますが、色も今まで通りシルバーでシートは黒の皮、慣れた車なので、運転があまりうまくない私でもすぐに乗りこなせることと思います。

“善き人のためのソナタ”を見て
2013-05-28 13:37

This morning, I summarized the movie, "DAS LEBEN DER ANDEREN/THE LIVES OF OTHERS ( 善き人のためのソナタ)", to my French teacher in French. The movie was produced jointly by the American and Germany movie industry in 2006" The other day I explained the plot of it to my other French teacher, but I was not satisfied with my summary. This time I had memorized some indispensable French words. When my teacher said that he enjoyed my story as if he had watched the movie, I was so happy.(2013.8.28)
ある映画の粗筋をフランス人にフランス語で話したら、内容がよくわかって映画を見ているようだったと言われ、フランス語が少し上達したかなと思ってうれしかったです。

学校の懇親会
2013-05-28 13:03

Yesterday I attended three meetings, a parent-teacher conference, a PTA meeting, and there was a convivial party in a hotel restaurant later on.
I spoke to the former principal of my son's high school. He's a chairperson there now. He said that he had heard that my son was a good student academically and he would like him to keep up the good work.
I also talked to the current principal and some other teachers. They told me that my son is a rare student who is very friendly with them, and knocks them over with jokes while they are chatting.
My son was precocious and mature for his age when he was a child. Nowadays he is a little presumptuous but he seems to be very polite with his friends and teachers in school

息子の学校の懇談会と懇親会に参加してきました。前校長で今は理事をしてみえる方に声をかけられ、私の息子が今の良い成績を維持できるよう、大学入試までにしっかりサポートをしてあげなさいと言われました。トップ五人はいつも国立帝国大学へ毎年入るので、担任の先生にも受験するつもりだった教育大学よりレベルアップして名古屋大学を受験してほしいと言われました。
