「CLOTHES ENCOUNTERS」のJenn Imが可愛すぎる!
オモシロTOEIC

前回、外国人かわいコちゃんYoutuberのチャンネル一覧で、海外のかわいいユーチューバー達を紹介したんですが、もう、それから僕の中でどハマりしてしまったのが、チャンネル「CLOTHES ENCOUNTERS」のJenn Im。

大人気のYouTuberです。現在24か25歳の韓国系アメリカ人で、チャンネルでは主にメイクやファッション、他には旅行や趣味の話をしています。顔だちが日本人受けするというか、もう、韓国人に告白してしまった自分としては、あまりにタイプなわけです。

英語もきれいなアメリカ英語で、しかもきゃわいいし、もう何度見ても飽きないので、教材にさせてもらうことにしました。外国人の彼女ができると英語が一気に伸びると言われてますが、まさにその感じ。勝手に彼女になってもらうというか、うん、これ以上言うとキモいですね。

では、美女YouTuber様の動画を使って英会話のお勉強をしていきましょう。

fiverrで全部セリフを書き出してもらう

fiverr
ともかく、僕の英語力では完全にセリフを書き出すことができないので、fiverrでTranscription(書き起こし)をしてくれる人を見つけて、全部内容を書き起こしてもらいました。なんと5ドルでやってくれます。600円くらいですね。

英語関連の依頼はfiverrにお願いする

fiverrについてはまた別に詳しく説明しますが、簡単に言えばワンコインマーケット「ココナラ」のアメリカ版です。ロゴ制作やライティングなどを5ドルという破格の値段で請け負ってくれます。決済はPayPalとBitcoinで可能です。

依頼内容にもよりますが、fiverrにはやっぱり当然ネイティブたちがいっぱいいるから競争が生まれるわけで、英語関連ではココナラよりも圧倒的にコスパが優れています。英文校正もココナラの場合は、250wordsで500円でもいいほうです。でも、fiverrなら1000wordsで5ドルが平均で、しかも人によっては5000wordsまでやります!なんてのもあります。

fiverrの使い方

fiverr transcription
使い方は至ってシンプルです。Transcriptionsというカテゴリがあるので、ここで条件(単語数・ビデオや音声の長さ等)が合う人を見つけ、下のような感じで「YouTuberのビデオの書き起こしをしてください」と依頼します。

Hello, I’m ●●. Could you transcribe this YouTuber’s video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9GrS2X0DJ4

ちなみに依頼内容のことをギグ(gig)と言います。「15分以上の音声の場合は2gig(10ドル分)買ってくれ」とかそういう仕組みです。納品はだいたい超早くて1日、平均で2日~6日でしょうか。

fiverr_transcription届きました。word形式です。

だけど、なぜか4分くらいのところで途中で切れています。日本人だと思ってなめられているんでしょうか。「残りをくれよ!激おこプンプン丸だよ!」ってメッセージを送ったら、ちゃんと送ってきました。うーん、日本人的なサービスを期待し過ぎると少し裏切られることがたまにあります。
でも「何度も修正するよ!」とか「俺の友達でこういうギグできるやついるから紹介するよ」とか優しい人もいたりします。

とにかく、これで書き起こしゲット!これでJennの言ってることがわかるぞー!エヘヘ!

何度も聴き、使えそうな表現を盗む

今回書き起こしを依頼した動画は「50 facts about me」です。この動画を選んだ理由は「自己紹介の表現が学べるから」というのが表向きですが、実際は、「私ってこんな子なのよ!って初デートで猛烈にこっちに語りかけてるような感じが好き」という理由です。ヘンタイですみません。でも、そんな感じするでしょ?

1分30秒あたりを少し引用すると、

I had a lot of weird nicknames growing up, I think the most popular one was Bruce Lee because I had a bowl haircut when I was around 7 years old, I don’t know I think it’s like a rite of passage if you’re an Asian kid you’re going to have a bowl haircut sometime in your life.

自分のニックネームを説明する時に、「the most popular one was」とか言うんだ!とか、「a rite of passage」って青春の時の通過儀礼みたいな表現か、面白いなぁとか、「sometime in your life」ってかっこいい表現だなぁとか、もうホントたくさん会話で役立ちそうな表現が詰まっています!
しかも、さすが人気のYouTuberだけあって、情感が込もっていて、相手を飽きさせない語り方が上手いなぁと感心してしまいます。プレゼンの参考にもなりそうです。

こんな感じで、さらにプリントアウトして音読したり、使えそうな表現にラインを引いたりしています。

みなさんもお気に入りのYouTuberや俳優を見つけて、こんなふうに英会話とリスニングを勉強してみてはいかがでしょうか。でも、書き起こしたセリフにも当然著作権があると思うので、私的な利用に留めておくべきかと思います。こっそりこっそり楽しみましょう!

以下、「50 facts about me」の全文書き起こし。ピリオドとかコンマが無かったりしますがなんとか読めます。
—————————————–
Hi you’re watching 50 random facts about me so let’s begin with number 1.

My name is***I’m pretty sure I am 5’1″ a lot of people have this conception that I’m a tall person, no I’m just really blessed that I have a camera woman who makes me look tall. I’m a California girl I was born and raised in Southern California but 2 years ago I moved up to Northern California for school, I honestly think that Northern California and Southern California should be 2 different states because they are completely different cultures. I go to UC Davis and initially I didn’t like it but as of right now I’m really set to graduate, I graduate in June not sure if that comes as a fact I graduate in June I don’t know I really enjoy my experience here and currently majoring in communication I’m a transfer student so I’ve never experienced dorm life, right when I transferred here I moved into an apartment.

After I graduate I probably going to move back to the bay cause I honestly don’t see myself living in LA I really like it up in Northern California and I remember I fell in love with San Francisco when I was 17 or 18 years old, I was on my 1st road trip with my girlfriends and we went to visit my friend John and I was just smitten with the city, it was the 1st time that I was in an area where there was a concentrated amount of artistic people, just public trains that actually function cool architecture, just the overall vibe of the city just blew me away. After that trip I swore to myself that I was going to move there.

I had a lot of weird nicknames growing up, I think the most popular one was Bruce Lee because I had a bowl haircut when I was around 7 years old, I don’t know I think it’s like a rite of passage if you’re an Asian kid you’re going to have a bowl haircut sometime in your life. Another nickname I had was toy story because my Korean name is***it kind of sounds like***, these nicknames are all given to me courtesy of my older brother Andy yeah I have an older brother his name is James and he’s pretty incredible.

And quite a saucy girl I like my catch-up, my barbecue sauce, my ranch, honey mustard,***saw so can I forget that one. If there is a photo booth around me I will use it and I will probably drag you in there with me because there something about that old school filmstrip that is really romantic and interesting to me. I love cheese, like I really really like cheese my favorite is***or a black***. I own way too many shoes for one human being, I’m kind of afraid to film a shoe collection because I don’t want to confront the number like the precise number of shoes I own.

I remember getting my 1st pair of glasses when I was in 3rd grade, I have terrible vision I wear contact lenses, and I’ve never worn circle lenses or colored contacts because I don’t think they make my prescription. And these are the glasses that I wear right now I wear my contact lenses at the same time so I literally can’t see anything this is probably making my vision even worse, but I wanted to show you guys what it looks like. I drink my coffee black I never had any sugar or cream to it, in fact I don’t add sugar to cream and anything because I don’t really have that much of a sweet tooth.

I’m definitely much more of a savory person, I would pick a bag of chips over a donut any day. My favorite chips or anything from the flaming hot collection but obviously the hot Cheetos that are the triple spicy have a very special place in my heart. I am 22 years old I’m not 15 or 16, so yes a prize that’s old I am. I have pretty bad hand eye coordination but I was plain***and I think it’s kind of changing that. I’m obsessive the smell of laundry detergent and really sure if you’ve been following my channel for 8 to 9 months you guys know that about me already, but that’s why I buy things like downy syllables or I will buy the detergent with downy infused and it because I just want to saturate all my close to smell like one big laundromat.

I grew up playing piano but I stopped playing at age 11 because I was being a brat and I was telling my mom I don’t want to do this crap anymore, that was probably one of my biggest regrets because now I’m stuck with only 2 songs I know how to play. The 1st song being Beethoven’s Furlise, I know to play the entire song, the entire pattern of how to play so that’s pretty impressive. And the 2nd song is***which I taught myself on YouTube, and that is a beautiful song.

I can submerge my head fully underwater is a phobia I got when I was younger because I hate the feeling of water entering your ears but not escaping out properly. So if you ever seen in a large body of water I’m usually just doggie paddling. I love looking at old family albums, looking at my mom’s old-style my dad’s old style, it’s something that’s really nostalgic to me even though I wasn’t there, I just feel closer to them seeing what they looked like when they were my age.

Whenever I go under a tunnel I make a wish, but I always make that wish very reasonable like I hope my friends and I have a great day today oh I hope my package doesn’t get lost in the mail, just very reasonable wishes that are probably going to happen anyway. I’m told that I’m a very enthusiastic person and I don’t know what to say to that other than the fact that I get pretty excited very easily. Whenever I painted my nails they never match my toes.

I am an Apple not a PC unfortunately. I really appreciate handwritten things especially cards, postcards little notes because I think unfortunately we are living in this electronic age where were constantly typing whenever see someone’s actual handwriting, so it’s quite interesting to see what it looks like. I think handwriting says something about the person’s character. This is my handwriting for those were wondering.

One of my all-time favorite foods is watermelon and I love it when it is cut into symmetrical little cubes and can stab it with a fork or toothpick. I will start naming all my jobs I guess, ever worked Baskin-Robbins, I was a server at Johnny Rockets, I worked at a bakery, I was a***at, I was a sales associate***. My last part-time job was a smoothie maker at***. Now my Job is making YouTube videos and I hope that doesn’t come off as a big surprise to you because a lot of popular YouTube errors their job is in fact a YouTube, and to be honest YouTube is definitely a full-time job; but luckily it is something that I really enjoy doing so I don’t mind that I’m working more than I’ve ever done because it’s something that I truly love doing, I think that’s when you figured out your dream job.

I like when large buyers of people congregate to one area for one specific purpose like a music festival I get like a physical high from being around that many people, I think it’s because when you are in a group like that you lose your sense of self and you become part of this one collective force. So I don’t know losing yourself for a while is a bit fun and healthy for you from time to time.

Whenever I’m on a plane I will order tomato juice because it kind of tastes like cold tomato sauce. I work out and run only at night because that’s the only time I really have. I love writing in multicolored pen so take a peek at my school notebook it is all in color it is like purple, orange, blue. It literally looks like a 5th grader wrote it. I am a hard-core napper, I can sleep in a lot of places that normal people can’t sleep. I can sleep in a public place like a classroom, I can sleep on a bench once my head hits my pillow I’m out like a lamp and some people call it a gift and I agree.

Sleep is very precious. I love eating soggy food especially soggy cereal and to be even more specific I love the soggy frosted flakes because they turn into soppy wads of sugar that just dissolving your mouth. I think it’s kind of due to the fact that sometimes I’m too lazy to choose something.

I don’t play video games because I don’t like to lose. And really OCD about dishwashing if there is a dirty dish in the sink I will wash it even if it’s not mine. I’ve been to burning man twice and I would love to go to this year but unfortunately I couldn’t get a ticket. I’m extremely ticklish I can’t get a massage without laughing hysterically or squirming or physically punching the person that’s tickling.

When I was 15 I had braces my right hand to kind of sunk insight took 8 months for it to pop it out and I was left with my teeth right now.

So those are all my 50 fax I hope you guys feel like you got to know me a little bit better, I would love it if you comment down below and tell me one interesting fact about you I would love to read it; seriously I would love to read it if you have an instagram my username is IMJENNIM. You can come check me out if you would like other than that I will see you guys next time, bye.
