I would like to talk about the HiSELT conference I attended yesterday.
There were two presenters. One was Associate Professor Shimo of Kinki University. The other Professor Kawashima, Nihon University professor.
First, Prof. Shimo gave us an English history involving the teachings of German and French from 1880 to 1910. Prof. This was followed by Prof. Kawashima's presentation in which he attempted to depict the works of Itsuki Hose, who arguably introduced five English sentence patterns.
It was really difficult for me to understand both topics. Because I don’t have enough knowledge about them. But Dr. Tanabe and other professors came up with questions about each topic. I was impressed with them.
I thought that I have to learn history. In order to be able to do that, it is very important to read many books, and attend many academic conferences. (amphibian)
