Weather: Sunny Plan: Akagi JHS

Today was pretty quiet around here so I spent most of my time reading The Economist online, which I recently subscribed to. I read it because it is full of world news and is a good resource for studying for the U.S. Foreign Service Written Exam. I still have a little time, since the test is on Apr. 8, but of course I am concerned about it. I still have to start practicing essay writing, though!

平成17年1月17日の日記
天気: 晴 行事: 赤来中

今日は静かな日だったので、ほとんどの日インターネットで最近購読している雑誌のエコノミストを読みました。エコノミストは毎週世界ニュースがいっぱいあるから、アメリカ合衆国外交官試験のために勉強することで雑誌を読みます。今年の試験は4月8日なので、もう時間があるが、もちろん不安ですよ。まだエッセイを書く練習も始まらなくちゃ!

    Hey Trevor I have recently been checking out your blog for Japanese practice - I like your lessons :)
    Anyways, just wanted to say if you wanted someone to read over practice essays I would be more than happy, spent my final year at uni doing a part time editing job and sounds like it would be my kind of scene content wise.
    Let me know, oh and not sure people will need help with flickr, was looking at it and if they can use shimanejets capably theres nothing really more complex, flickr is good at explaining things simply.

      Thanks Kate! The essay is a timed 50-minute essay that is on a given topic. The key focus is on structure (}a classic 5-paragraph or 7-paragraph form) and ease of understanding. When I start writing them, I will transcribe and send them to you ehrough email to review.

      Thanks for your help!
