According to recent study from the Pew Research Center.
Almost 1 in 4 American has not read a book in the past year.
That actually seems high to me.
I bet it's even fewer than that.
So to find out, this afternoon,
We sent a team out to the street.
To ask pedestrians to name a book.
Any book.
Could be The Bible.
Could be "Fifty Shades of Gray."
All we wanted to know is "Can you name a book?"
And here is how that went.
Can you name a book?
Oh, yes.
Uh -- Uh -- I don't read, but --
But -- What's it called?
Can you name a book?
Uh --No.
Can you name a book?
Um -- Uh -- I don't read books.
Yeah, that's it.
A book?
"The Lion King."
The movie?
Yeah, the book.
You read the book "The Lion King."?
Yeah.
Let me just think.
Uh -- Hey, hold on, man.
Hold on, let me think, hold on.
Can we cut this out and do it again?
Can you name a book?
A book? Any book?
Um -- "The Jungle Book."
It's not a book, is it?
It's a movie.
"The Jungle Book."
Sure.
Is it?
Both.
Are you sure?
No.
Does -- Do magazines count?
No, Those wouldn't be books.
That's correct.
I can name "Moby Dick."
That's an artist.
He wrote a book called "Horse.", I liked that book.
Moby Dick was the author?
Yes.
The book was "horse"?
Yes.
That's what I said.
What was the last book you read?
Um -- Probably Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss.
Dr. Seuss, maybe.
I haven't read a book for like 12 years.
I'm drawing a blank.
Geez.
I need books.
Sorry.
I am totally blanking out on books.
What do you do for a living?
I was a librarian.
All you have to do is pick up a book.
Cause when you know how to read
Adventures come to you.
That's right.
Thank you, Sha.

QNo.9520710

困ってます

質問者が選んだベストアンサー

「米国人の4分の1は,過去1年間に1冊の本も読んでいない」という研究結果に疑問をもった。比率はもっと低い(もっと読書している)はずだと予想して,街頭インタビューしてみた。結果はさんざんだった。(おなじ英文が何回か繰り返されてませんか?)

name は動詞で,「名をあげる」。たとえば,
 Can You Name Every US State In Four Minutes?
 4分間で米国すべての州の名がいえるかい?
これは,よく小学校地理で問われるクイズです。

冒頭のところだけ訳すと:
We sent a team out to the street.
To ask pedestrians to name a book.
調査チームをくりだし,通行人に本の名をあげるよう質問した。
Any book.
Could be The Bible.
Could be "Fifty Shades of Gray."
どんな本でもかまわない。聖書でもエロ小説でも。
All we wanted to know is "Can you name a book?"
And here is how that went.
われわれが知りたかったのは,とにかく本の名がでてくるかどうかだ。
以下がその結果である。

ANo.4

英文科卒ですが、何か。

回答ありがとうございました。

(<・>A<・>) そうなんですか?

ちなみに、英文科卒の人が英語を教えるのが
日本の英語教育の弊害になっているともいわれているので
野口悠紀雄とかの著書読んでみると良いです。

英文学をならっても実践的な会話やもし仕事や学業で使う場合に
もっと実践的な自分の仕事や学問に使う専門的な特化した英語教育に
役に立つ勉強・教え方をした方が良いと書いてありました。

ちなみに今私が書いた質問の文章を全部英語で書くと
どのようになりますか?

ANo.2

 アメリカ人の読書癖を調べたら、過去一年に本を一冊読んだのは四人に一人。

回答ありがとうございます。
日本人も平均だとそのぐらいだと思うのであまり本を
読まないんですかね?

意味が知りたきゃ翻訳検索すればいい
そうでないなら、もっと勉強すればいい
