LAUGH WITH PLEASE
After the end of the Tokyo Dome and the Korean exibitions, the “World big tour” will be end soon. During the promotion, there was a time when they went Korea too, so we asked about the interesting points of Korea!
About the study of foreign languages, are you good or weak?
I don't think I'm weak, but I want be good! (laugh) You know, I want to think that since are words, everyone can learn languages. Moreover, I want to think that I'm managing in doing it (laugh). My English scores in middle school weren't good, like I couldn't remember it well. I was said from the teacher to do it, but I wasn't able to understand all the meaning of the things I was studying. It wasn't a matter of “love or hate”, simply I was studying. Since now I've got a goal, the attitude toward the study changed. I've become positive toward the studies. The contents of University English lessons fortunately are different from the ones of middle school, now are very interesting. Now lessons are finished, but because I don't want to lose the study of English, I'll continue.
What language would you be happy to be able to speak?
First of all, English. If you can speak English, you can speak with a fair amount of people. After all, if I can be able to convey what I think, even the journeys overseas would be easier, because if you can't convey your thoughts you will feel stress.
The last Korean words you learned
“Onurunzegashilukeyo”, “Today I'll pay”. Since Korean and Japanese have the same grammar, it's easy to study it, even if I simply don't understand hangul (laugh). But even if I study the way of writing, if I don't understand the pronunciation and the meaning I can't use it, so I'm studying especially the speaking. I want to be able to speak more before the Korean concert. Everyone has studied the useful “anyon”. It's a word similar to a rough “hello”, used all the day. Knowing this, we can say hello. After all, the first step in a conversation is the greeting!
The interesting Korean thing that Nakamaru suggests
Of course the food. The samgetan I ate in Korea was delicious! It was absolutely different from the one I ate in Japan. They brought 1 chicken, but the weight a person alone can eat; isn't perfect for a lunch? I'm not good with spicy foods, but it didn't gave me problems. I thought that it would have to not be changed in Japan.
3 weeks from now the lessons will end and will be summer, so now I'm on a mountain. (The interview was taken in July). But there are things worth to do. When you're busy, if you end all the things you have to do, you feel satisfied, right? I like when I can say “I did it! Now I'm free!”. In this term there were subjects that I absolutely didn't want to fail, but now I've got the confidence I'll pass them. Since I think I won't have assigments during summer holidays, I'll end everything before the Korean concert and I'll enjoy the summer holidays doing the tour.
Translator's note : saying that “now it's a mountain”, it means that he has to do his last efforts to end his school semester (that is, the last before reaching at the peak = holidays)
