  • Hey guys, for those of you who are on my channel for the first time, welcome.

  • My name is Sena.

  • I was born and raised in Japan and started studying abroad in New Zealand at the age

  • of 15 then I went to school, university and worked for a local company for about 2 years

  • and moved back to Japan in September 2020.

  • Soon after I started studying abroad in New Zealand, I began creating videos on YouTube.

  • At the time, my aim was to make videos of me speaking in English and wanted to see how

  • much my English would improve over time.

  • Then the years went by and I noticed that there weren't much information about New

  • Zealand so I created many vlogs where I showed what my life was like in New Zealand.

  • Also, I created videos relating to English learning because I'm a guy who has been

  • learning English for many years and I thought that I would be able to share my English learning experience with you.

  • Many of my subscribers have asked me if I could make more English related videos like

  • words, grammar, pronunciation, writing, phrases and so on.

  • But I never wanted to truly become an English teacher for you on YouTube.

  • I guess that's why I haven't made many videos likeHow to say this or that in

  • English or “10 English phrases that you will be able to use from todaysort of thing.

  • So I would like to properly explain to you why my channel didn't end up becoming a

  • channel that is only dedicated to English learning in this video.

  • Without further ado, let's get started.

  • One of the reasons why I don't want to just teach English on my channel is that I'm

  • not a native English speaker and I still consider myself as a student who is trying to improve my English daily.

  • I guess I don't have the mentality of becoming a teacher for you yet and I don't know if

  • I'll ever be brave enough to call myself an English teacher.

  • On YouTube, I know there are many non-native English teachers that teach English and I think that's great.

  • I believe that being able to speak English fluently and teaching someone how to speak

  • English fluently are two completely different things.

  • For example, I speak Japanese as a native language but I suck at teaching Japanese to

  • people who are learning Japanese.

  • So I assume people who learnt how to speak English as their second language might be

  • better at teaching English compared to Native English speakers who only speak English because

  • they know what it's like to learn a new language.

  • Then you might ask me, “If that's what you think, shouldn't you teach English because

  • you learnt English as a second language?”

  • This leads to my second statement as to why I don't want to do that.

  • I don't want you to just aim to speak English fluently.

  • I want you to become more than that.

  • I know that becoming more than just being able to speak English fluently is vague so

  • let me explain this to you.

  • When I first became interested in learning English, I thought being able to speak English

  • fluently was so freaking cool and amazing.

  • I decided to study abroad in New Zealand when I was 15 because I wanted to be fluent in

  • English and I thought that being in an English speaking country would significantly help me with this objective.

  • As I spent more time in New Zealand, my ability to speak in English became better but I also

  • started noticing one thing which was “I know how to speak English but I don't know

  • what to say to people in conversations.

  • I guess I learnt how to speak English but it felt as if I didn't know how to express

  • my inner thoughts well enough that I could only have conversations that were super shallow

  • like how are you?

  • What did you have for lunch? Kinda thing.

  • I don't know about you but I just happen to dislike small talks because I've always

  • been interested in getting to know someone at a deep level.

  • So I started to practice how to transform my thoughts into words in English and I noticed

  • another thing which wasBeing able to speak English fluently doesn't mean you are an interesting person

  • This is regardless of whether you speak English as a native language or a second language

  • but I have identified that people who don't think about things are really boring to talk to.

  • Let's assume that you are Japanese, the majority of people in Japan speak Japanese

  • fluently but I'm sure you don't find all of them interesting just because they speak the language fluently.

  • This may be due to how they don't have what you're looking for in terms of opinions,

  • perspectives, behaviours, life visions and so on.

  • This is entirely my perspective and some people do find me boring and that is ok.

  • It's just different preferences that all of us have.

  • But I guess if you are still watching me speak until now, then I assume you are probably

  • like me who enjoy getting to know people deeply.

  • There are many great YouTubers that teach English and I thought that I wouldn't be

  • able to differentiate myself from those amazing people.

  • However, since I happen to love topics relating to psychology and philosophy, I thought that

  • I could create videos that might get you interested in thinking about things in general no matter

  • how small they may seem.

  • This is because I believe we can be interesting as human beings by just wondering and thinking

  • about things that we might miss if we don't pay attention to our own thoughts.

  • And I can also learn about new things by doing research, creating videos to share my perspectives

  • and receiving your opinions in the comment section and I thought this is the best way

  • for me to contribute to the YouTube community.

  • So this is what I mean by “I don't want you to just aim to speak English fluently.

  • I want you to become more than that.”

  • Well, I'm sorry if my message is still vague but I would love you to find your own interpretation

  • about what I mean by this.

  • To be honest with you, I'm still figuring a lot of things about myself but I would like

  • to have my channel where I can grow and connect with all of you.

  • This channel's direction may change in the future but I guess it's a part of living

  • life because we are changing constantly.

  • That's the end of the video today.

  • I hope you enjoyed this topic.

  • If you like this video, please give this video a thumbs up.

  • reach people who are interested in the topics that I discuss on my channel.

  • keep striving to create videos that are worth your time.
