英語の宿題 ChatGPT大活躍

木曜日にやる予定だったんだけれど、仕事がしんどすぎてそれどころではなかった。そして日曜日にあわてて宿題をやっている……。いったいいつになったら気が休まるのだろう……。

正直ChatGPT大活躍過ぎるんだけれど、しかし緊張感をもって英語の勉強をするには、僕にはオンライン英会話必要なのもたしか。これやらなかったら絶対英語の勉強やめると思う。

……しかし、ここまで苦労して英語勉強して、使う日はくるのだろうか……いや、もちろん使えるように振る舞おうと思っているのだが、しかし、いまでもしんどいのにこれ以上しんどくなるようなことを何故僕は自ら……いや、それともこれによって今より仕事が楽になる可能性も……いや、とりあえずまず宿題をやろう……。

宿題: リスニング

めっちゃ難しくて草。久しぶりに難しい宿題きたわ。x0.75倍にしたら遅くなるけど、なんかリズムが狂うというか、これはこれで難しさがある。x0.9倍とかがあればいいんだけれど。

Watch The Difference Between A Software Engineer And A Software Developer from  Clément Mihailescu and answer the following questions:

1. If software engineers and developers have the same job, why are they given different titles?

In this video, both are explained as the same job. Either can be used, so both are used. For example, Google adopt software engineers, and Amazon adopt software developers.

2. Do you think someone's seniority at a company should be reflected in their title? Why or why not?

I don't think that someone's seniority should be reflected in their title. In my opiniton, we should reflect the competence and role in their titile.

3. What new information did you learn from this video?

In japan, some people call person who solely program code as 'Programmer'.  But as this video says, I believe programmers and software engineers are the same.

Don't forget, if the video is too fast, you can adjust the playback speed of YouTube videos from the Settings menu.

なんとか答えたが、永遠にこの動画の英語を聞けるようになる気がしない。うーむ。。。

あと何故かイチローの記事を読めという宿題。

Read this article from "USA Today" and answer the following questions:

あまりにも関心がなさすぎて、読んでてつらかった。

宿題: 英作とスピーキング

Q: What's the most scenic hike you've ever been on? Where was it and what made it so beautiful?

The most impressive scene that I have ever seen while hiking was the snowy landscape at the top of the mountain. At that time, I didn't live in Tokyo. I lived in rural. The mountain was close to my house, and not high. But the snow made the hike a little difficult. It was challenging for me because I had never hiked alone in the snow. In deep snow, my knees were buried.

I was alone, but there were many hikers, so I felt safe. There were elderly people. There were also male and female couples. Everyone enjoyed hiking on the snow. Because it was a little difficult, I felt the snowy landscape at the top of the mountain was so beautiful.

However, there was one thing that I was worried about. On my way back down, I saw a couple. When I saw them on my way to the top, they seemed to get along well, but at that time, they did not seem to get along. The woman looked tired. The man looked worried. I said "hello". The man said "hello". The woman said nothing.

I hope that the snowy scene at the top of the mountain made up for them.

太字はChatGPTに添削頼んだら怒られたところ。これを練習して今日のオンライン英会話に臨む。今日は時間あるから頑張って暗記して、表現をさらっと使えるようにしたい。

なおChatGPTから受けた指摘は以下。

  1. "in my hiking" → "while hiking"
  2. "made me a little difficult" → "made the hike a little difficult"
  3. "because I had never hiked in the snow alone" → "because I had never hiked alone in the snow"
  4. "my knees were buried in snow" (repetition of "snow") → "my knees were buried"
  5. "There were also old people" → "There were elderly people"
  6. "Because it was a little difficult" → "Because it was slightly difficult"
  7. "When I was backing from the top" → "On my way back down"
  8. "The man said 'hello'" → "The man responded with a 'hello'"
  9. "I hope that the snowy scene at the top of the mountain made up for them" → "I hope that the snowy scene at the top of the mountain brought them some solace"

いくつかは不採用とした。特に最後は、ChatGPTにツッコんで聞いたら、文法的に誤ってないけどあんま自然じゃないからこっちのがいいよということらしい。

ただちょっと bring them some solace のニュアンスがつかめず……。調べてもあんまり情報でてこないし。ニュアンスのわからん言葉はとりあえず使わない。ちょっと勉強する。。。

小ネタ; ChatGPTとの会話

ところでその後について。

これはすごくChatGPTっぽい。こういうときに、もうちょっとまともな人間らしい会話したい場合は、推測しようとするのではなくて、願望を言えば良いです。

ポジティブな願望については、願望なのでポジティブに返してくれます。ChatGPTと普通に会話したい時のテクニック。
