Bilingual Blogging バイリンガルブログ

I’ve decided to try to start the practice of writing my blogs bilingually.  The Japanese will be slightly different, probably less eloquent than the English but I hope to keep it more or less the same.  I’m always trying to find good and better ways to study and practice my Japanese.  I often give up on certain methods as they become boring or ineffective.  I also have come to appreciate a fact that I’ve known for a while, namely that when you associate newly learned words or grammar with your own life and experience it sticks much much better than if you just drill and drill with no context.

これから英語だけではなく日本語でもこのブログを書くことにした。もちろん日本語より英語の方が上手に書けるので英語バんの方がいいと思うけど、できるだけ同じように書いてみる。いつももっといい日本語の練習と勉強の方法を探している。たまにつまらなくなる方法や役に立たない方法がある。そいいうのは諦める。暗記だけで覚えることより自分の生活とか趣味とか興味と関係ある勉強のほうが心に残るということを最近感じた。

In other news I’ve recently configured Conky as a clock for my desktop.  It was a bit of a headache while I was repeatedly using the same typo’d command expecting different results.  Beware of using the command history incorrectly.

ところで、今日Conkyというソフトをデスクトップに設定した。ちょっといらだたしかった。コマンドヒストリーのタイプミスを何回もやっちゃった。

sudo cp Desktop/conky.conf /etc/conky/conky.con

Is not the same as

と言うコマンドを何回も繰り替えしたのに

sudo cp Desktop/conky.conf /etc/conky/conky.conf

というコマンドが正解だった

It took me about 20 minutes of banging my head against my fist until I noticed the missing “f” at the end.  Anyway it works beautifully as you can see in my screenshot below.  Conky config file is available as well.

二十分間くらい間違えていた。でも、やっと出来て、結果はしたのスクリーンショットに見える。そして設定のファイルもしたのリンクからダウンロードが出来る。ぜひご使用ください。

  1. Bilingual blogging – what a great idea. I’m sure it will help you. It will definitely give you plenty of practise translating into Japanese, thinking in Japanese and typing Japanese, too.

  2. Oops. Spelling mistake. Sorry. It should be … give you plenty of practice …
