English here 🌍 こっちの英語

English is one of the languages spoken all over the world and each country, region or even local area can have various dialects and accents.

Many pride in their own here in the UK and comparing the difference whether domestically or internationally often becomes a conversation topic.

Not knowing what kind of English you will encounter might feel a little daunting for learners, but many find it to be something that makes communication interesting as well as challenging!

Getting to know the languguage’s background like that I feel is one of the things that helps us make progress when learning it.

Words express thoughts and feelings, so reflect not only the background of the language itself but also many other things such as culture, relationships and common sense.

In this blog, I would like to share my personal thoughts on what may help us learn English, along with little things I notice as a Japanese person about English and life here in the UK.
