AFNをインターネットで聞く

よく、AFN(昔のFEN)を一日中かけっぱなしにしていたら英語が聞き取れるようになった。
なんていう話を耳にします。

若い頃からそんな生活に憧れたものですが、残念ながらAFNのラジオ(AM放送810Hz)は関東圏か米軍基地の近くでしか聞くことができません。

我が家では、昼間はまったく受信できず、夜でも雑音まじりで聞けたものではありません。

今やインターネットラジオ全盛の時代、AFNもインターネットで聞けないのかなあと、以前から何度もGoogleで検索したものですが、いい結果は得られませんでした。

しかし先日、偶然、AFNがインターネットで聞けるようになっていることを発見しました!

American Forces Network Pacific (AFN Pacific) http://afnpacific.net/

AFN Tokyo http://tokyo.afnpacific.net/

AFN Misawa http://misawa.afnpacific.net/

AFN Iwakuni http://iwakuni.afnpacific.net/

AFN Sasebo http://sasebo.afnpacific.net/

AFN Okinawa http://okinawa.afnpacific.net/

さあ、憧れのAFNかけ流しの生活のスタートです(^^)。

英語のリスニングがよくなるかなあ。。
そんなに甘くないか。

タイムテーブルを知りたいですね。

"George, don't get into trouble."

Curious George Visits the Zoo』 - Margret Rey, H. A. Rey

The man with the yellow hat が
"Wait here and don't get into trouble."
とお決まりのセリフ。
しかし、curious な George はじっとしているわけがなく。。

いたずら好きなジョージだけど、最後はハッピーエンド。
ほんと、ほのぼのした気持ちになります。

Curious George Goes to School』 - Margret Rey, H. A. Rey

またまたお決まりの (^^)
"Wait for me, George, and don't get into trouble."

Alice の絵が見つかってよかったね。
最後に George も gold star をもらいました。

Curious George

Curious George は図書館の洋書絵本コーナーでときどき立ち読みします。

Curious George Plays Baseball』 - Margret Rey, H. A. Rey

I read Curious George Plays Baseball at the library today. He is so cute. :-)

Curious George at the Ballet』 - Margret Rey

簡単な英語で量も少なく、楽しく読めました。

Curious George Takes a Job』 - H. A. Rey

お話の展開が早くて、楽しさがぎゅっと詰まっています。

Curious George Gets a Medal』 - Margret Rey, H. A. Rey

簡単な英語で読みやすいですが、結構文字数があって読み応えがあります。
最初は立って読んでいましたが、途中から座って読みました。
それにしてもお話の展開がすごい。
この絵本が書かれた当時は宇宙へ行くなんて夢のことだったんでしょうね。

Tuesdays With Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson

『Tuesdays With Morrie (モリー先生との火曜日)』

児童書でなく大人の本を。
その中でも読みやすいものを。
ということで、皆さんのブログなどを参考に読み始めました。
9/18から11/6まで約2ヶ月弱かかりました。

英語と日本語の両方で読みましたが、感動しました。
人生について考えさせられる、本当にいい本でした。
今後も大切にしたい一冊になりました。

以下は、当時のTwitterより。

9/18
I started to read Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.
9/23
I've been reading Tuesdays with Morrie since last week. It's a memoir by American sports columnist Mitch Albom.
9/30
"Tuesdays with Morrie"はThe Second Tuesdayで足踏みしていたのですが、また読み始めます。毎日少しずつでも読まないと。実は昨日、古本屋で翻訳版の「モリー先生との火曜日」が100円で売っていたので買ってきました。
10/1
英語と翻訳を交互に読んでいます。実力不足のため英語だけだと"もやもや"が残りますが、日本語を見て"なるほど"となります。
10/5
"Tuesdays with Morrie"はやっとThe Fourth Tuesdayへ
10/6
「モリー先生との火曜日」先に翻訳でしっかり読むことにした。
「モリー先生との火曜日」翻訳版を読了。考えさせられることが多かった。これから英語で読み返しながら、もう一度考えてみたい。
10/22
Kindleはちょっと停滞中。
10/27
I've resumed reading Tuesdays with Morrie on my Kindle.
I read "The Fifth Tuesday - We Talk about Family". It's a touching story.
10/28
I read "The Sixth Tuesday - We Talk about Emotions".
10/29
I read "The Seventh Tuesday - We Talk About the Fear of Aging".
10/30
I read "The Eighth Tuesday - We Talk About Money".
11/1
I read "The Ninth Tuesday - We Talk About How Love Goes On".
11/3
Tuesdays with Morrie 簡単な英語ということですが、私のレベルでは時間がかかってなかなか進みません。。やっぱり普段から読む量が少なすぎるから。今日は集中して読みます。
I read "The Tenth Tuesday - We Talk About Marriage" today.
11/4
I read "The Eleventh Tuesday - We Talk About Our Culture" this morning.
I read "The Audiovisual, Part Three - Tuesdays with Morrie".
I read "The Twelfth Tuesday - We Talk About Forgiveness" this afternoon.
11/5
I read "The Thirteenth Tuesday - We Talk About the Perfect Day".
11/6
I read "The Fourteenth Tuesday - We Say Good-bye" in bed last night.
I read Graduation and Conclusion. I have just finished reading Tuesdays with Morrie in English. It was a touching story.

Holes

今さらですがKindleを買って洋書多読を始めてから読んだ本をメモとして残しておきたいと思います。
『Life on the Refrigerator Door』 の後はこれでした。

Holes』 - Louis Sachar

皆さんの評判を聞いて読み始めました。
途中なかなか進まない時期もありましたが、後半はグイグイ引き込まれていきました。
いろんな伏線が最後につながる展開にそうだったのかーと感動します。
すぐに翻訳本も読んで理解が深まりました。

以下は当時のTwitterより。

8/18
Holesを読書中。いったん7章の途中まで読んだのですが、頭の中がぼーっとしてよく分からなくなってしまったため、思い切って最初から読み直しています。今度は登場人物の名前をメモしながら。
8/25
Holes今週はあまり読めませんでした。ただ今19章。少しまとまった時間が欲しいなあ。
9/3
I'm reading chapter 36 of Holes now. It'll take me more than a month to read through this book...
9/8
I have just finished reading Holes by Louis Sachar! I really got involved in the story.
9/10
Holesの翻訳版を読んでいます。英語で読み終わって感動!だったのですが、日本語で読んでみたら、こんなことがこんなところに書いてあったなんて。。英語じゃ読めてなかった。。しょぼん。。しかし日本語だと面白くてどんどん読めてしまいます(^^)。
9/12
Holes翻訳版読み終わりました。読んだばかりなのに、後半どきどきしながら読みました(^^)。
