英語力は要約力をのばすことで爆発的に伸びる!

英語力を飛躍的に伸ばすこつは、英語の新聞記事を読んだらそれを自分の言葉で1分以内でまとめる練習をすることです。
1分以内はエレベータに乗っている時間ですので、よくエレベータートークと言われます。エレベータートークを身につければ英語だけでなく、日本語の発言もシャープに短く言う能力が身につきます。今日の記事はIOCがオリンピック延期の話し合いをはじめたとういうJapan Timesの記事IOC to start discussions on possible Tokyo 2020 postponementの一部です。まず、意味を取りながら2回音読してください。iTextSpeakerというアプリをダウンロードしてそこに以下の英文をコピペして、ネーティブの発音を聴きながら2回シャドーイングすると完璧です。そのあと自分の言葉で1分以内で内容を要約して言う練習をしてみましょう。盛り込むキーワードは3つ What(何がおきたか)、Why(なぜおきたか)、How(これからそれがどのよう展開することが予想されるか)。そのあと簡単に自分の意見をOPREP FORMATで言って見てください。

The International Olympic Committee is stepping up its “scenario planning” for the Tokyo 2020 Games — including a possible postponement — as the coronavirus pandemic spreads, it said after an emergency meeting on Sunday.

The IOC will hold discussions that will include an option of putting back the July 24 start date or even moving the games by a year or more due to the global coronavirus outbreak, but said canceling the Games would not solve problems or help anybody.

Opposition to holding the games in July has risen sharply in the past 48 hours, with several major stakeholders such as U.S. Track and Field and U.K. Athletics along with several national Olympic committees, calling for a delay because of the pandemic.

“A decision about a postponement today could not determine a new date for the Olympic Games because of the uncertain developments in both directions: an improvement … in a number of countries … or a deteriorating situation in other countries.”
