宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン

宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン 70: リニューアルオープンする姫路城. Himeji Castle has reopened after renovations.

Ami: Hi Risa. Long time no see! What have you been doing?

Risa: Hi Ami! Actually I just got back from Hawaii!

Ami: Wow! You went to Hawaii? How was that?

Risa: It was great. But now I want to do some sightseeing in Japan so I’m going to Himeji. I heard it’s renewal open!

Ami: huh?

In Japanese there are many loanwords (外来語); words that come from another language, often English, but sometimes the words change meaning. In English, we don’t say “renewal open”. Instead we say “reopen after renovations”, so Risa should have said:

Risa: It was great. But now I want to do some sightseeing in Japan so I’m going to Himeji. I heard it’s reopened after renovations!
