Don't be afraid of failure

My husband works really hard.

He always comes home after midnight.

He came home at 4:30am 2 days ago and at 2:00am last night, but he has already woken up and was preparing to take an online English lesson from 6:30am.

He said:

"I am sleepy."

"Yeah, you must be sleepy!"

I answered.

He will go to the US on a business trip next Monday for a week.

He is also learning English and he and I belong to the same online English school.
But he speaks very little English.

But he can communicate with foreign people because he isn't reluctant to speak English though he doesn't have enough skill and he gets by with body language and a little English.
In my case, I felt embarrassed to speak English when I was a high school student because I worried whether I spoke correctly.

I stayed in Canada for a month to take an ESL class at a college when I was a university student.

I overcame my resistance to speak English during the stay.

I really envy his attitude, he isn't afraid of failure.

He has already had to communicate important things to people who don't understand Japanese.

Maybe it is neither to get a high score of TOEIC test nor to remember more vocabularies.

(Of course both of them are important, too.)

I think that it is most important to do your best when trying to express hard to describe feelings and concepts.

  1. Hello Kumi-san,

    Interesting article. I think your husbands approach to communication is very effective. Confidence when communicating certainly makes speaking easier. Also the people he is speaking with will know that he is not speaking in his native language and they should if they are considerate people make allowances for this. After all it would be much harder for them to speak Japanese. So they should be glad your husband makes the effort.

    Here is a list of issues found with the post:

    Question in the above line I am assuming that you wanted to say 2am in the morning (2 hours after midnight) and not 2 hours after noon/midday.
