レッスンレポート(Part8 レギュラークラス Paris France Top Things to Do)

土曜日の Trevorのレッスンです。普段はアメリカ出身のインストラクターが多いので、アメリカの観光を中心に扱っていますが、気分転換にパリの動画を使用しました。

Trevorから「パリは何の街か?」という質問がありましたが、私は「花の都」という言葉をまず思いつきましたが、彼が言うには"City of Love"として知られているとのことでした。これがアメリカ人や世界的に共通した認識なのかは調べてみたいですが、こういった違いも興味深いですね。


ちなみに、英単語の説明の方法の話ですが、Stunningly (stunning) = shockingly,Very Shockedについては、Trevorがスタンガン((stun gun)の写真を見せてくれました。暴漢などの相手に電気ショックを与える器具(護身用具)のことです。Stunninglyを知らなくてもstun gunの写真を見ると一気に意味がつながりましたし、記憶に残りやすいですね。
