I have an announcement to make. I, Tokunaga Chinami, will be going to study abroad once more!
Even after returning home six months ago, I still felt like I wanted to keep studying English. But in order to live overseas comfortably I also felt that I’d need a driver’s license, and so I came back to Japan!
And, somehow or another…!!!
Managed to get my license!!!!
Not to say that I didn’t fail the first time trying though. (laughs)
Through studying English, I’ve come to realize that there really is no end goal when it comes to language learning. That’s why I simply wish to keep learning until I’m satisfied! ^ ^ To think that someone like me could ever be so willing to study…!
Now that I have my driver’s license, I’m going to head out to study abroad once more. ^ ^ I hope to meet lots more people and have many more experiences so that I’ll be able to grow even further!
But I do hope that I don’t grow any more in terms of body weight!

What happened to being an Advisor?

Mitsui went twice, too.

The Mitsui Method, huh.

Mitsui got back to working after she came back from her first one.
Tokunaga only came back to get her driver’s license, so it’s a bit different in her case.

She even got her driver’s license!?
64: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 13:24:07.32 0.net
Is she going to NZ again?
351: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/02(木) 00:12:09.79 0.net
Exchange students can’t get driver’s licenses in NZ? I bet it’d be way better to get one over there rather than at the rip-off driving schools of Japan.

It’s apparently the written parts of the exams that make it difficult for getting a driver’s license overseas. Although that would of course depend on the student’s language ability.

I got my driver’s license in the state of California, USA. They allowed me to bring an English-Japanese dictionary so it was no problem at all for me.

She’s going to be driving while abroad, huh.
11: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 12:59:26.65 0.net
She seems happy. That’s all that matters.

Even on BZS she was always talking about how she wanted to go overseas.

An escape from the cold climate of Japan.

What’s her TOEIC score?
58: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 13:22:47.25 0.net
I do wonder about her TOEIC score.
Mitsui got something like 500, right?
261: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 14:40:38.81 0.net
She got 760 points back in 2015.

What about Ogawa’s TOEIC score?
78: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 13:29:06.15 0.net
It was over 800.
121: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 13:45:14.93 0.net
Googling it, it looks like 800 is above the average of students at the University of Tokyo.

800 would be something like Eiken Grade 2, right?

Her listening is native-level.

Chinami’s English is probably pretty advanced already. I bet it’s just the technical and other difficult vocabulary that she struggles with.

Chii, becoming more and more proficient…

What are we going to do when some years from now Chinami comes back and it’s her Japanese that she’ll be struggling with…?
327: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 18:30:13.86 0.net
No one can become like that within just a few years. They couldn’t, not even if they tried.
331: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 18:45:03.55 0.net
She’s been struggling with Japanese from the beginning so there’s no issue there.

Nothing wrong with studying English, but I do wonder if she’s given though as to how she’s actually going to put those skills to use? Even with Mitsui, it doesn’t seem like she’s doing anything but giving out random English statements regarding H!P… Even if you learn something, you’ll quickly forget it unless you put it to use. I hope she’ll find a way to put those skills to work somehow.

Chinami, it’s okay for you to go out there and have as much fun as you like. Just, please film it and let us see it, too!

While she may not be the most well-known person ever, she’s still a celebrity. I bet a part of it is just that it’s easier for her to meet new people overseas than it is here.
349: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 23:06:03.76 0.net
She hadn’t even been doing any events ever since she paused her activities…
328: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/01(水) 18:33:32.32 0.net
Ultimately, she only came back for Momochi’s sake.

To think that it’d be China-Momo to end up as the studying members…

Chii-chan, at least do a send-off event before you go!
356: 名無し募集中。。。 2017/11/02(木) 01:23:31.62 0.net
I wonder if Momochi would attend her farewell party?

May peace prevail all around the world.
May the members of Berryz Koubou and °C-ute become happy.
Do your best, Chinami.
Phew, I’m relieved she wants to go back New Zealand after six months to study more English, for a second there I thought she wanted to get back to her boyfriend.
Chinami got her driver’s license? THIS is the big news (I mean, we know her, she’s adorable, but how could she possibly manage without killing a cat, or a deer, or a granny?).
Speaking of how, how exactly is Makoto’s TOEIC sheet available online? Did she post it herself, or are the wotas getting scarily creepier? Really hope it’s the former.
Risako going to have like.. 10 kids when Chinami got back to Japan
Can you stop sounding like an idiot?
