If you stay at home for a long time, you will have to spend a lot of time playing with your iPhone. Why don't you use this at home as an opportunity to study English? Here's how to use the iOS “English version” that you can start today. .
How to make iOS "language setting" English
The content of “iOS”, which is the foundation of iPhone functions and operability, is common throughout the world (except for some functions). Originally, it supports various languages, and the language to be displayed is selected by default. The language selected at this time can be changed later. Let's change the iPhone currently used in Japanese to English display.
The display of menus and confirmation screens of various applications will be changed to English. However, the content display and character input of mail, Safari, and other applications can be used in Japanese.
Here is good if you display it in English!
The contents are my own iPhone as before. Just displaying it in English will help you improve your English a little in various situations.
"Get used to English" every time you get an iPhone
Even if you know the meaning of an English word, you often think for a second if you can understand it at the moment you see it. However, by repeatedly touching the days of the week and words such as “Camera” and “Health” on the iPhone home screen, your head should gradually become “accustomed to English”. "Shortcuts" and "Reminders" can easily adapt to the plurals that Japanese brains tend to forget.
The meaning is understood by the icon
Even with unfamiliar English words, there are quite a few things you can tell from the icons and display position of familiar iPhone menus. For example, if you open "Settings", you will see "Notifications", "Do Not Disturb", etc. If you don't know the word, looking at the icons will give you an idea of what it means.
Learn English by experiencing
Repetitive operations, such as selecting with "Select" and completing with "Done", are linked to words so that you can learn while experiencing the meaning. You may be able to intuitively understand fixed phrases and phrases depending on the situation.
How to give priority to Japanese display only for certain apps
Content created in Japanese, such as e-mails and web pages, will be displayed as Japanese even if the OS is set to English, but in some applications the display language of the content will be changed according to the OS. If an inconvenient or confusing part comes out depending on the content, you can change it so that only that app is displayed with Japanese priority.
