Instagram, which has a lot of nice pictures posted, is fun just looking at it. Each person has their own purpose for using Instagram, such as searching for word-of-mouth information, following the influencers they admire, and reporting on their daily lives with friends.
But just looking at it is a waste! Let's enjoy learning English while interacting with people all over the world by posting in English on Instagram and writing comments on overseas accounts.
Instagram is often written in short sentences, so even those who have difficulty reading English can work on it relatively easily. Also, by outputting in English posts and comments, you can practice "writing what you think in English". In addition, getting used to thinking and outputting in English is also useful for English conversation.
In this article, we will introduce fashionable English phrases that can be used for posting by category, popular hashtags, and Instagrammers that are popular overseas. If you find it difficult to post in English, please feel free to post or comment by referring to the article.
Fashionable English phrases for Instagram posts
Here are some short and fashionable English phrases that you can use on Instagram for each category.
I chose the ones that are as easy to understand as possible, but there are many Instagram accounts overseas that are difficult to understand without a sense of English because they are rhymed so that they can play with words and hear well. Learning English on Instagram will help you get used to it.
In particular, there are many word games related to food, and it is difficult to understand unless you understand the background knowledge, where you are playing, and why it is fashionable. For example, what kind of things are there?
Pasta la vista.
(The famous Spanish line "Hasta la vista." In Schwarzenegger's movie is put on the pasta.)
I scream for ice cream.
(I rhyme with scream and cream. The meaning is "scream for ice cream", but it's not interesting even in Japanese.)
I'm on a seafood diet. I see food, and I eat it. Can laugh at you)
(I'm playing with words by changing Ex of Excuse me? To Egg. It's a cute message.)
In pizza we crust.
(Originally In pizza we trust), pizza dough is called crust, so it is a word game that changes trust to crust. Crust means "cover" in the verb. However, this is a sentence that enjoys wordplay and has no particular meaning.)
Even if all of them are in Japanese, it doesn't really convey the fun, and it's difficult to make them into Japanese. I've removed these things this time, but if you're interested, take a look at the food posts to get a feel for the atmosphere.
It's also nice to use some of the lyrics and sayings that match the image of the photo in the caption of the post.
It is convenient when you post when you come across a phrase or sentence that you think "this is!" In your English account, or if you have any lyrics or sayings that you like. You can naturally add expressiveness by looking back at the gap time, posting on Instagram and other SNS, interacting with overseas friends, and using it for English conversation lessons.
