英語は文頭の主語と動詞を押さえることろからはじまる(お約束の全スクリプト公開)

みなさん、こんにちは!

今日はお約束の全スクリプトをお届けします。

大切なポイントは

1. まずは英語を何度も聞いてみる。
2. 必ずS+Vを確認。 大切なのは文頭の主語と動詞を確認すること!!
3. 意味がまとまる単位(塊単位)でサクサクと考えてみる(英語脳が出来上がる前は)
4. はじめから全部聞き取ろうと思わないこと。
5. 聞こえた所をつなげてまずは紙に書いてどのくらい理解できたかスクリプトと見合わせること。


Q: I'm Britney Ransom, and I'm a student here.
And in the past recent years, there have been some cuts in
federal funding and student aid. I'd like to know personally
what you plan on doing to increase in that aid for college students.

A: Thanks for the question, Britney.
And this is something I hear all across the country.
And first of all, I've got a personal stake in this because
when Michelle and I graduated from law school, our combined
monthly student loan was more than our mortgage.
And that was true for about 10 years.
And we were luckier than most because as attorneys,
we could make a little more than if somebody was a teacher or
somebody was a social worker.

We've got to deal with this.
I wanna restore money that's already been taken away.
That's number one. Number 2, I wanna expand Pell grants
because we need more grants, fewer loans so that students
aren't piling up huge amounts of debt.
Number 3, I wanna create a $4000 tuition credit, every student, every year.
But young people will not be able to get it for free.
You guys gonna have to participate in community service,
work in a home-less shelter, work in veterans’ home,
join the peace corps. So, we'll invest in you.
You'll invest in America.
And together, the country will get stronger and you guys won't be loaded up with so much debt when you leave college.

And one of the ways to pay for it, by the way,
is eliminating middlemen in some of the federal direct loan programs.
You've got banks and financial institutions that are making billions of dollars off the student loans. That's something we've got to change.


Q: Hi, my name is Sean Daniels.
I'm interested in how has this campaign and this situation with your pastor affected your spiritual life.
And how would that influence your presidency?

A: That's an interesting question. I'm a Christian.
I pray every night. And when you run for the president, you pray even more. Although it's interesting what I pray for,
the longer I'm in this, is less about me, more about first of all,
making sure my family is okay, but the second thing is that
whatever I'm doing is actually good for the people that
I wanna serve and good for the country.
The longer I'm in this process, the more you realize that you're gonna be successful if you can get your ego out it.
And focus on the job that need to be done and what
people are going through I talk to every day.

You know, obviously, there is a flap in terms of my former pastor,
and that was a difficult moment. This is somebody who
one hand is a good man but who said something that I deeply
disagree with.
And I tried to give a speech here in Philadelphia to indicate
broader context of the anger that still exists, the resentment
that still exists between the races. And my belief is that you know,
one of the important things about my Christian faith is that
you forgive people. You try to understand them, and ultimately,
the judge is gonna be, the God is gonna be somebody who is making judgements about many of these things.
I'm just gonna stay focused on the job that I'm doing and hopefully
you’ll pray for me too!

Q: Hello Chris, Hi Senator Obama.

I'm interested, I understand that you wanna increase teacher's salaries
which I'm all for since I'll be a teacher.
But I wanna know your stance on a merit pay.
And how it will affect special education teachers and then those
who are in the low ESL area.

A: I'm not in favor of merit pay as currently understood,
which basically involves taking test scores and rewarding people on how they score on tests.
How students score on tests because the problem is,
let's say, special-ed students or ESL students, by definition, special-ed students are behind and may need special help.
They may not move at the same pace even though we can inspire to make sure
that they get the best education possible.

Students for whom English as a second language
they may be behind in terms of test scores even though
they are very intelligent just because it's not their native language
that they are speaking. This is a broader problem that has to deal with
"No Child Left Behind". I want the highest standards for our students but
I don't want standards measured solely by a single high stake standardized test. I want to have...
I wanna make sure that our standards are crafted with educators with teachers.

I do believe in creating career ladders for teachers so if
they’ve become a master teacher,
if they’ve become nationally board certified,
if they’ve done other things to improve their own professional development that they can potentially get more pay. I think that's important.

Q: Hi, my name is ロサリン マッケイ
(良く聞き取れませんがロサリン マッケイと聞こえます)
As a type 1 diabetic, I was just wondering what you are going to do to gain further support for stem cell research and...

A: Well, the thing is, actually, we have enough support in the Senate and the House to pass this bill. George Bush has vetoed it.
Here's what we will do.
We just need one more vote, and that's the vote of the president.
And since I will be the president, we will sign stem cell research.

注意:これは私が耳で聞き取り、分かり難いところはグーグルで検索したり
辞書で調べました。
(例えば、You know, obviously, there is a flap in terms of my former pastor、
このflapは音は聞き取れたのですが意味的に使い方が分からず辞書を
見て確認しました。ですのでこのような場合この聞き取りが100%正解かは保証できませんのでご了承下さい。)
