H. Ikemoto, Japan – Level 1


Maybe I am too old to be studying English, but I am still trying to improve because I believe it is never too late to learn something new.

Today I want to write about my hearing problem caused by aging. About 10 years ago, I started to hear a constant noise 24 hours a day. Seven years ago when I played music from a CD I noticed that I can hear the sound but I can’t follow the melody. I felt so sad, because I love music especially bossa nova, but I can’t follow it anymore.

Of course I consulted a physician and she said there is no way to treat the internal ear. So, I advise all of you younger students, be careful with the ear and go to a check-up periodically.
