to read in English

kant-colorAs I wrote before, one of my main purposes of learning English is to acquire adequate skills of debating and writing, necessary to study German philosophy at some foreign University. My skill is far from that purpose so far. A few days ago, I started reading a book of Immanuel Kant, a German philosopher, in English and found it not so difficult to read. I felt it was much easier than that of Japanese edition. It was because the original edition had been written in German, and in terms of linguistics, English and German are similar to each other since they have the same root. So, German has less difficulty in translating into English than into Japanese.
