学ぶことの意義

(実家の裏庭の子猫)

It’s already been one year since I took up German at my language school. I was a total beginner, so I was worried my teacher would think I was stupid, and he may think so now, as he said the other day that, because of my age, it would be hard for me to memorize new things. He has asked me a few times why I wanted to learn new expressions.
When I was younger, I made notes when I found unique expressions while I was reading something or watching movies. And, I still do it, even though the expressions may not be that special for natives, because I like languages.
I can make sentences in German, but when it comes to conversation, I find it difficult to improve because of my poor vocabulary.
I encourage myself, because I am a forgetful person, so I must keep my brain active. Besides meeting many people through language learning and studying spices up my daily life, so I should not quit, even if my level stays the same for a while.

まだたった一年、あるいはもう一年も経ったと言うべきか、ドイツ語のレッスンもそれなりに進んでいます。
作文はできるのですがまだまだ会話力はありません。脳の老化を防ぐためにだと思い続けたいと思います。
