blog: step-by-step on English

My English pronunciation is not so bad as most of Japanese. However after the experience of working at global office, my pronunciation improved so much. I found it when I was using Siri. I hadn't been able to use Siri, but after 6-month experience Siri could work for me.
However it doesn't mean that my English is very fluent. I can't speak long sentences in one breath. Similarly my listening ability improves rapidly but the communication itself is not so fluent. Now I can listen to whole sentences of the podcast which I download from BBC as six minutes English, but even though I can grasp the words it is difficult to understand whole sentence at one time. Moreover it is much more difficult to respond or make an opinion after I listen some English. So I am trying to improve the retaining ability by shadowing and writing this blog by voice typing.
