Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

twinkle starTUJ'S final class.

Yesterday,TUJ English class finish its all session.
I’ve got some very useful tips.
But the teacher said to us “most important thing is to speak more and more ”
So,I really thought that what he says is exactly true !

twinkle starI learned the way of "Shadowing"

Yesterday,I learned the way of “Shadowing” in Speaking Naturally Class of TUJ.
My teacher said important things below.
・Using a mouth
・Taking care of stresss
・Speaking fast!
・Not taking care so much about vocabulaly
・Taking care grammar
not for perfect,but close perfect
・Imagining what the speaker says. feeling nuance.

In last class, we did shadowing behind a couple of classmates’s conversation which they had played a roll about article,which had been provided by teacher.

we couldn’t hear the conversation clearly.

But we gathered words we could hear,
Then we thought about what they talk .

It’s difficult for us to hear at once.

Teacher said to us “No matter, do practice”

He advise us to do shadowing with my Language Japanease. 13 months ago

twinkle starI think I can't listen

Sometimes I can hear what each speaker says ,
But sometimes I can’t hear that .

I think no idea about that excepting short of lack of my listening skill.

Now I check my Habit of listening.

as far as I know now,
I think I can’t listen well about “I” ,”They”,”There might be”,”It’s” ,”when he”in the conversation.
I sound about “where the” like “weather”. 13 months ago

twinkle starPractice of ”the past perfect”

the grammatical form used for an action that had already finished when another action happened. It is made with ‘had’ and a past participle:
(from Cambridge)

1)I had taken a trip to Europe for 10 days 5 years ago.

2)I took a trip to Europe 5 years ago.I stayed for 10 days.

Umm, I kind of thought that both 1) and 2) is same meaning…

Maybe ,I need not to use “had stayed” without “for 10 days”.
On the other hand , I should use “had stayed” for adding “for 10 days”.

Anyone, Please tell me what I should think. 13 months ago
