A: You can put your bag on the desk.
Thank you.

Thank you.
A: May have your name.
My name is XXX.
A: Where do you come from?
I am from ... Prefecture.
(その後、出身地の市がどの辺りかなどを聞かれた。)
B: I am from the western part of Canada. It rains a lot. You also have a rainy season. When does it begin?
It starts at the beginning of June, and lasts about a month.
B: Why does it rain a lot in June?
I am not sure about it, but it rains a lot. (あまりに緊張していて何を言ったか覚えていない。モンスーンのせいだ、と言うのをすっかり忘れていた。)
B: It is hot rain, right?
Yes, it is hot and very humid.
B: It is not comfortable. I have heard that, in Japan, there are a lot of fish. What kind of fish do you catch in the sea?
I think we can catch tunas and octopuses, and ・・・ various seafood. Actually, I don’t like fish, raw fish.
B: That is unusual. You do not like fish other than raw fish? Like ・・・(何を言われたか覚えてない)

Not really.
B: What is the difference between Shrines and Temples?
Shrines have gates called Torii. They are painted in red. Temples have graves in the precincts.
B: Graves? Temples take care of the dead? And shrines do not take care of them. Why? Is it their custom?
(本当は全く考えが浮ばなかったが)I think it might be that Buddhism came from China, and had the custom to take care of the dead, and Shinto Shrines, Shinto is a indigenous religion and had not that kind of custom.
B: When was it that the last Summer Olympics were held in Japan?
Summer? ・・・・・・(間が空く) Tokyo?

Thank you.
A&B: Have a nice day.
You too!
A: Bye.
Bye.
とにかくものすごく緊張しました。多分、顔にも出ていた気がします。言う事も忘れてしまっていたし、はきはきとはできてなかったように思います。
試験官は二人ともとてもフレンドリーでニコニコした感じでした。
