(私の声が震えて変になったのを聞いてこう言われたのかもしれませんが)
B: Don't be nervous. Just relax, as if you're chatting with your friend.
Thank you, I'm so nervous today.
AとBが笑った
B: First, please tell me about yourself.
Myself?
(あまりに予想外の質問だったので、聞き返してしまった)
B: Yes.
Well, I came from Kagoshima today, and I'm working at city office of ZZZ, and I belong to board of education. It's been ten years since I started working.
(と答えるのが精一杯だった)that's all.
B: Ok. I'm a traveller, travelling Japan. You are a guide. I don't know very much about Japan, so I'm going to ask you some questions, you help me, OK?
Yes.
(Bがまた少し微笑んだ)
B: I want to go to Mt.Fuji from Tokyo. What is the best way?
(正直調べたことがなかったので動揺しました。少し考えて、)
By shinkansen,super express train. because it is more convenient than taking airplane.It takes less than an hour,(かなり自信がなかったから),well,,,(もう仕方がないと思い、)yes, less than an hour.
B: Ok. How can I climb Mt Fuji?
Well, the most popular way is that you can go up to half of Mt.Fuji by bus, and stay over a night, and clime up the rest of it, so you can see the sun rise at the top of the Mt.Fuji.
Many tourist agencies have these kinds of package tour, so you can enjoy joining one of them.
B: Oh, really? (けっこう興味を示された)Have you tried it?
Not yet. All my family except me have tried it, though.
B: Ok, I'm also interested in Japanese history. Who ruled the shogunate system?
(と聞こえた気がするが、意味がよくわからなかったので聞き返した)
You mean who was ruled the shogunate system?
B: Yeah, when was the strongest shogunate system?
(のようなことを言われた・・・)
(結局よくわからなかったので)
Well, shogun was originally a temporally title given by the emperor to the commander in chief of an expeditionary army. Later, it developed an official title given by the emperor to the administrative head of the country. This shogunate system lasted until mid-19th century. The strongest shogunate system was the Edo period, from 1603 to 1867.
B: Ok. Next, I want to buy a car. In which city can we see car factories?
Well, I recommend going to Nagoya. There is Toyota car factory. Needless to say, Toyota is worldly famous car factory. Not only Toyota, there are several company's car factories.
(意外な質問で、もう何を言っていいかわからなかったのでこのような答えになってしまった)
B: I want to buy Mazda car.
Oh, Mazda's head office is located in Hiroshima, west of Honshu. (ほかにたいした知識もなかったので、)Hiroshima is interesting city, because most of cars on the street are Mazda cars, not Toyota, Nissan. I was so surprised when I went there for the first time.
B: oh really? (また興味を示された)Ok, I want to go skiing. Where do you recommend me?
(直前対策セミナーの解答例を少し覚えていました!)
Well, there are around 600 ski and snowboard resort in Japan.
B: Oh, wow! 600?
Yes, I recommend you Niseko, west coast of Hokkaido. It takes two hours by car from Sapporo, capital of Hokkaido. Its dry and powdered snow is famous, and many people are coming from Shanghai to Sydney. Also, there is natural hot spring. So you can enjoy a soak in hot spring after you enjoy skiing.
B: Great. Ok, I hope your good luck. Thank you.
A: 今日はこれで終わりです。thank you.
(日本語の質問がありませんでした!私は、英語の質問でうまく答えられなくても、日本語の質問だけにはきちんと答えたいと思い、結構答えを準備していたので拍子抜けしましたが)
Thank you very much.
試験官Aがにっこりされた。試験官Bは何か書き込んでいたようだった。
前述のとおり、最後に日本語で質問があると思っていて、英語でうまく点数がとれなくても最後の質問で挽回しようと思っていたので本当にショックでした。もしかして私は不合格と判断されて日本語の質問は不要と思われたのではないか今でも心配です。
できるだけのことは頑張って答えたつもりですが、質問されてちょっと考えたりした部分がマイナス評価されたんじゃないか心配です。
