  • My priority has been my college work so my English studies have sl;ipped a little

    play icon

  • I haven't had time to study English due to pressure of college work.

    play icon

To slip - to go into a worse state, often because of lack of control or care:
Productivity in the factory has slipped noticeably in the last year.
"The schedule has started to slip." (= things are happening later than planned).
"I don't know what went wrong with my performance. I must be slipping."
Due to...... = We use this expression at the beginning or middle of a sentence to show that something is affectedv by something else.
'Due to heavy rain, all football games have been cancelled.'
To slip - 悪い状態になること。コントロールやケアのなさによることが多い。

【例文】
Productivity in the factory has slipped noticeably in the last year.(昨年、工場の生産性は著しく低下した)

"The schedule has started to slip." (= 計画よりも遅く起こっている).

"I don't know what went wrong with my performance. I must be slipping."(私のパフォーマンスの何が悪かったのかわからない。不調に違いない)

Due to...... = この表現を文頭または文中に使用して、何かが他のことによる影響を受けたことを表します。

'Due to heavy rain, all football games have been cancelled.'(大雨によって、すべてのサッカーの試合が中止になった)

A. How are you? I haven't seen you in my DMM Eikawa class in so long.
B. Yes, teacher, I've just been busy.
A. Really, how so?
B. I've been taking extra classes this semester, so school has just taken over my life! After I'm done with my classwork, I have no time left to study English.
(something) has taken over my life- 人生のほとんどを占めるという意味です。

  • I've been so busy with college that I haven't been studying English much.

  • College has been taking up a lot of my time, so I haven't been studying English much.

    play icon

If you want to explain that you are so busy with your college studies that you haven't had the time to study English much, you can say:
"I've been so busy with college that I haven't been studying English much."
"College has been taking up a lot of my time, so I haven't been studying English much."
「大学の勉強が忙しくて英語を勉強する時間がない」は、次のように言えます。

"I've been so busy with college that I haven't been studying English much."(大学の勉強が忙しくて、あまり英語を勉強できていない)
"College has been taking up a lot of my time, so I haven't been studying English much."
(大学の勉強に時間を取られて、あまり英語を勉強できていない)

  • I have been so busy at college that i haven't studied English much

  • I haven't had much time to study English as i have been busy with college

    play icon

To say "i have been so busy at college i haven't studied English much" or " i haven't had much time to study English as i have been busy at college" would describe exactly what has happened you have not been studying your English as you have been busy at college
上記例文はどちらとも、大学の勉強が忙しくて英語の勉強が疎かになってしまっている状況を表す文章です。

●I have been so busy at college that I haven't studied English much.(大学の方が忙しくて、あまり英語を勉強していない。)

●I haven't had much time to study English as I have been busy at college.(大学の方が忙しくて、英語を勉強する時間があまりない。)

  • I have been so busy with other work that I have had to sideline English for a little while.

    play icon

  • Recently my college studies have taken priority over English.

    play icon

  • I have put my English studies on the back-burner whilst I focus on my college work.

    play icon

When we 'sideline' something in our lives this means that we have had to stop doing it for a duration of time, either willingly or unwillingly. This phrase can be used in many contexts. For example - "I have had to sideline my social life for my family for a while."
When we put something on the 'back-burner' this again means that we have had to postpone something and is similar in meaning to 'sideline'.
sideline' は、しばらくの間何かを積極的に、または渋々、やめることを表します。
この表現はいろいろな文脈で使うことができます。

例:
"I have had to sideline my social life for my family for a while."
しばらくの間家族のことで遊びは二の次にしないといけなかった。

'put something on the back-burner'も'sideline'とよく似た意味です。何かを後回しにすることを表します。

  • I've had a full plate with my studies, so I haven't been able to study English.

    play icon

  • I've been wrapped up in my studies, so I haven't had much time to study English.

    play icon

The two sentences you see above are great ways to express to your listener that you haven't had much time to study English because you have been busy studying in the university. In the first sentence you will see the term full plate. When we have a full plate that means we are very busy. You will also see the phrase wrapped up in the second sentence. This also means to be very busy. I hope these two sentences and this explanation help you out!
これら2つの文は、大学の勉強が忙しくて英語の勉強をする時間があまりないことを伝える素晴らしい言い方です。

はじめの文では、full plateという言葉が使われています。have a full plateは、とても忙しいという意味です。
また、2つ目の文ではwrapped upというフレーズが使われています。これもとても忙しいという意味です。

この例と、説明がお役にたてば幸いです。

大学の勉強が忙しくてあまり英語の勉強ができていない(レッスンが受けられていない)なら、次のように言うことができます:

(学校の勉強が忙しすぎて、英語のレッスンがあまりできていません)
-I've been preoccupied with my studies that I have not been able to take more English lessons
(学校の勉強がいっぱいで、英語のレッスンを増やせません)

Native speakers will say like this: “I'm so busy studying for college that I didn't have the time to study English”.
There are lots of other ways to say it, but this one is the most accurate and most commonly used.

Here is an example on how to use this:
A: Did you study English?
B: No, I'm so busy studying for college that I didn't have the time to study English.
ネイティブスピーカーは以下のように言うでしょう:

I'm so busy studying for college that I didn't have the time to study English.
(大学の勉強が忙しくて英語を勉強する時間はありませんでした。)

他にも色々な言い方ができますが、これが最も正確で、よく使われます。


これを使った例です:
A: Did you study English?
(英語を勉強しましたか?)
B: No, I'm so busy studying for college that I didn't have the time to study English.
(いいえ、大学の勉強が忙しくて英語を勉強する時間はありませんでした。)

  • College studies have been so hectic i haven't had much time to focus on English.

    play icon

Hectic means very busy,
Example "Work has been hectic today".
Focus means to give a lot of attention to something, So to explain you haven't had much time to study English because College studies you could say "College studies have been so hectic i haven't had much time to focus on English.
"Hectic" は「とても忙しい」という意味です。
例:
"Work has been hectic today".(今日は仕事がすごく忙しい)

"Focus" は「~に注意を集中させる」という意味です。
ですから、「大学が忙しくて、英語を勉強する時間がない」は、
"College studies have been so hectic i haven't had much time to focus on English."
と言えます。
