This poor translation into English is for both brushing up Yoshy’s proficiency and telling updates to my foreign friends. Yoshy’s several foreign friends are always checking this blog; wrong expressions found, an article of “Correction” has been uploaded here.

英文中、英検2級レベル以上の語彙や表現には、* (星印)で注釈をつけています。

In this blog, Yoshy adds * (asterisk) at the vocabulary and expressions whose level are Eiken 2nd and over, and writes its explanation.

Let’s try to find queer or wrong expressions we Japanese easily mistake, shall we?

02 500 20150808 Cool-LL Erie yamais CDs


88()12歳のエリーには、酷暑がこたえますので、7月初旬以来、朝からエアコンのあるLL教室にいます。28 (= 82.4)、湿度は40%で、エリーには快適です。(カ氏=9/5×セ氏+32)


On Saturday, August 8th. As twelve-year-old Erie is hard on this boiling hot day, she’s been staying in the room of LL Shihoya Arai School from morning since the beginning of July. It’s 28 (= 82.4) and the *humidity is 40% on that afternoon, which must be comfortable for her.

Many English song CDs under a *thermometer with *hygrometer had been borrowed from Ms. Y. and was returned to her at YEA (Yoshy’s Volunteering Monthly English Activity) of M-PEC on that night. Thank her very much!

*thermometer [θɚmάməṭɚθəmˈɔmətə]:温度計  *hygrometer [hɑɪgrάməṭɚgrˈɔmətə]:湿度計  *humidity [hjuːmídəṭi]:湿度


03 500 20150808 LL-garden 39℃= 102F Lavender


LL菜園のラベンダー区画の気温は、39 (= 102.2)も!屋根が悲鳴を上げている気がしましたので、30分くらい、融雪装置で、井戸水を噴出させました。例年は、初冬に点検するのですが

It was 39 (= 102.2) at Lavender-territory in LL-garden! Since I felt the roofs seemed screaming about such terrible heat, I moved sprinklers on the roofs for about half an hour, so to speak, threw enough well water over them; though we usually do just before starting snowing.

This second picture of our residence was taken to the north way. An old woman living next to us said to me with joy, “How lucky it’s getting cooler!”

Coming back there, I found several long-legged *wasps drinking that cold well water being caught in the spray. They looked very happy.

「いやはや、今日も暑いですね。」は、“Crickey! We have very hot weather today, too.”  --- ???


答え:*Crickey! It’s very hot today, too.

*Crickey [krάɪki](間投詞)いやはや、これはまあ!(驚きの口語)

会話では、天気や天候は、itを主語にしましょう。”We have…” では、天気予想のお兄さんお姉さんが使いそうな表現になって、よそよそしくなります。
