Around the World in 5 minutes
1. Do you know pyramid complex at Giza? It is the three biggest and most famous pyramids in Egypt. It is said they were built around 2500 BC. I can’t image how people built it without heavy machines! The pyramid complex at Giza is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
「ギザのピラミッド・コンプレックス」を知っているかい? エジプトにある、最大で最も有名な3つのピラミッドの総称なんだ。紀元前2500年に建てられたという。重機もなしに人々がどうやって建てたのか想像もできないよ。ギザのピラミッドは「世界七不思議」の1つなんだよ。

2. The tallest mountain of the world is the Everest. It is 8,848 meters tall. George Mallory tried to climb to the top in 1924, but he lost his life. His body was discovered on May 1st,1999. When he was asked why he wanted to climb the Everest, he answered. “Because it’s there.” Have you found the mountain you want to climb?

3. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He advocated nonviolence and disobedience for peace. He was a really persistent man.

4. Muhammad Ali was an American who was a hero to the world. He was a champion of heavyweight boxing. He was a Muslim and a conscientious objector to Vietnam War. He didn’t want to go to Vietnam to kill anybody. It was really hard to refuse to go to Vietnam. He lost a lot, but he carried through with his convictions. A persistent person doesn’t need violence.

Quick Lesson on A Single Point  
校長先生: 今回の放送でSeason 2 は最終回になります。デビッド教授は、英語の勉強方法は人それぞれ違うと言っていましたが、ジュンジくんやリスナーの皆さんが、これからどうやって英語に取り組んでいけばいいか、ヒントを頂けますか?

First, be persistent and consistent. If can study every day, it’s best, but if you can’t then just study as often as you can. And if it’s difficult, don’t give up! Keep pushing forward!

Second, try different ways of studying and different resources to find what works best for you. What’s best for one person isn’t universal, so don’t be afraid to look for something better if you feel stuck.

Third, use English in everyday life! Talk with English-speakers here in Japan or online. Send emails, talk on the phone, help a lost tourist, or have coffee with a foreign friend. The more you use the language, the better at English you’ll get!

Finally, have fun with it! The more you enjoy learning something, the more effective your study will be. When you have fun, you can study hard and it doesn’t feel so difficult. Life and learning should both be fun!
