Good afternoon! May I put ...?

(と私が言いかけると試験官Bが椅子を指す。)

B:Please put your bag there. Please sit down.

B:May I have your name?

My name is ...

B:Where do you come from?

I come from Kochi.

B:How did you get here?

I came here by plane through a big typhoon.

(高知に午前中上陸するのでは、との予報のなか40分遅れで出発。ものすごい揺れだった。試験官三人「わー大変だった」ということを小声で言った。)

A:I'm going to ask you some difficult questions.

Yes, please.

A:I have heard the word "ekiben". What is it?

It is a box lunch sold at a station. I think it is unique to Japan. My
husband's hometown is Kanazawa. Kanazawa is famous for Masuzushi.

A:What's that?

It's sushi made of vinegared boiled rice and vinegared trout.Vinegared trout is beautifully put on the rice. It's delicious. I recommend it to you.

A:How much is it?

Sorry, it's expensive. It's more than 1000 yen.

A:No. It sounds delicious. I'll try.

Thank you. I'm happy to hear that.

A:Now I'll ask you another question. Japanese people live longer compared to people in other countries. What do you think about it?

It's due to a conbination of factors such as good diet and exercise. A recent survey said there are more than twenty thousand centenarians in Japan.

A:Young people eat fast food very often. Can young people survive like them?

There are many young people like my sons who dislike fast food. They have made efforts to make meals by themselves. So, I think some can survive.

A:OK, let's change the topic. What do you think about the increasing juvenile crimes?

The age at which juveniles can be treated like adults was lowered to 14.
However, recently, a serious crime occurred in Nagasaki. To our great surprise, a 13 year-old boy killed a very young boy. I felt very, very sad.
I think many parents are worried about their children. It's necessary to set
up consultation centers or hotlines that parents can contact to discuss their
problems more freely.

突然リリリと鳴って、"finished!"と言って終わりだった。
試験官Aはアジア系の優しそうな40代の方で、他の方も終始なごやかで、試験官Cの方は終了のベルがリリリと鳴ると何か小声で知らせるだけだった。最後に"Thank you"とお辞儀をして椅子を直して退場した。小声だが聞き取りやすい英語だった。
