Learning English – What is your ambition

Learning English - What is your ambition

I have a few main ambitions at the moment. I think the first and foremost ones, seeing as I’m in Japan at the moment studying Japanese, would to be actually to be able to speak the language, but I think that’s pretty far fetched ambition at the moment at the rate I’m going. I think to actually learn this language properly you’d have to live here and be studying at least a year to get to know the language and then another year to get fluent, get the speed up, get the slang in, so I mean I think that’s one of my life ambitions is to learn Japanese. I can’t speak any other languages so just to be able to speak another language would be amazing. I think English, English speaking people have, well, a sort of bad arrogance that everyone else speaks English and so why bother to learn another language. It’s not like people in other European countries where, like from a very young age they learn English. They can speak English, maybe French, Spanish, and Italian. Once you got one language under your belt it seems to be a lot easier to pick up other languages. So that’s one of the things I’d like to do. My other main wish at the moment, which I hopefully I’m going to turn into a reality when I return home is to actually get a job in the animation industry. I did my degree in that and it’s been something that I’ve, you know, I’ve been waiting to actually get to the job stage, the job stage for so long now. Before I came to Japan, I was working, but in a graphic design job which is not what I’m actually wanting to do, so I think my, you know, number one wish at the moment, apart from the Japanese, is to actually be there in the industry I want to be working in, working the way I want to work, you know doing what I do for fun, as a job. That’s my sort of number one ambition. I mean obviously making money is nice but I think at the moment the most important thing in a job is, you know money shouldn’t be the first thing, you should really enjoy what you’re doing. I’ve always said I’d never want to work in an office where you have to wear a suit, where you have to be constricted and constrained. You know I want to have my offices, sort of I mean, the environments I’ve, the work environments I’ve seen so far through friends and what I’ve worked in myself is pretty similar to how I think it should be: a group of more friends than colleagues working together on something they’re passionate about. I think that has to be my main aim in life.

目前我有一些伟大的志向。首先,我现在正在日本学习日语,我希望我能讲日语,但是以我现在的进度来说,我想这是非常不切实际的目标。我认为要完全学会日语,你就要生活在日本,至少学习一年的时间,来了解这门语言,之后再用一年的时间可以说流利的日语,语速加快,融入俚语,我是说,我认为我生活中其中一个雄心就是要学会日语。我不会其他的语言,所以我认为要学会其他语言很令人不可思议。我认为英语,说英语的人很傲慢,其他说英语的人不理解为什么要费力去学其他语言。不像欧洲其他国家的人,他们在非常小的年纪就学习英语。他们可能会说英语、法语、西班牙语和意大利语。一旦你学会了一种语言,看起来再学习另一门语言会容易得多。所以这是我喜欢做的事情之一。我现在还有一个志向,我希望我可以将这个志向变成现实,我希望在我回到家乡的时候我可以在动画业找到工作。我获得了动画业的学位,我一直在等待能在这个领域找到工作,我等待了许久。我来日本之前有在工作,但是我做的工作是平面设计,那并不是我真正想做的工作,所以我想,你知道,现在除了学会日语之外,我最大的愿望就是想进入动画领域工作,做我想做的工作,在工作中享受乐趣。这就是我最大的愿望。我认为,当然赚钱是不错,但是现在对我而言,工作方面最重要的事情是……其实赚钱不应该是首要的事情,你要真正的享受你所做的事情。我曾经说过,我完全不想在那种要穿套装又受限制的窄小办公室里工作。你知道,我想拥有自己的办公室,目前我朋友们工作的环境,还有我工作的环境类似于我希望的那种环境:和热衷于所从事工作的同事们一起共事。我认为这是我人生中的主要目标。
