Hello!

A, B, C : Hello.(みんなにこやか)

How are you?

A, B, C : (みんなほほえんでいるが、返事はない。)

A : May I ask your?

My name is ?. I'm from Kawachi-nagano City, Osaka.
(住んでいるところはきかれていないが、練習通りに答えた。)

A : (書類を見ながら)Now let me ask you a question.

OK.

A : Many Japanese husbands don't seem to praise their wives. Why do you think they don't.

(難しい時事問題でないので、ほっとして)
Well, I think, that depends on the person. My husband always praise what I do, even washing dishes and cleaning house. Imust be quite lucky!

A, B, C : (笑う)

A : I think so. So do you think it only depends on the person? Doesn't it have to do with the generation?
(私の答の足りないところを引き出そうとしている?)

Basically, I think it depends on the person, but it may have something to do with the generation, especially men in older generation. They tend not to praise their wives, including my father!
(試験官皆笑う)

A : Why doesn't he praise your mother?

Because, he should think that he doesn't need to say that. He thinks that even though he doesn't praise her, she knows that. But my mother is not very happy about that! She wants compliment!

A, B, C : (笑う)

A : Let me ask you another question. What do you think of learning English at elementary school?

(またまた、ラッキーな質問)
I think it is very good. Personally, I have a 6-year old daughter. She has English classes at school. Of course she can't speak English very well, but she enjoys singing and playing games with native English teachers. I think it's a basic level of cross-cultural exchange.(話しやすい話題なので、時間稼ぎに話し続けた)Also, I want them to have discussion classes. In order to discuss something in English, you need to have good command of English. But it's a good lesson to express yourself.

A, B, C : (うなずきながら聞いてくれる)

A : When you were a student, did you have discussion class?

Yes, when I was a university student. Unfortunately, at that time, my English wasn't very good, so I wasn't able to enjoy it. But now, I can enjoy discussion very much.

A : You seem to enjoy it. Now, next question. What's ochoko?

(予想外の質問だったので、しばらく時間を稼いだ)Ochoko?

A : Yes, ochoko.

Well, that's a good question. Ochoko is a small glass. When you drink Japanese alcoholic drink, sake, you have it with ochoko.

A : Don't you think it's too small?

Yes, but for your health, it's good to have a small ochoko.

A, B, C :(笑う)

If you have a big ochoko, you will drink too much.

A :(笑う)Exactly, well, time's up. Thank you for coming today.

Me too.(一礼して)Thank you.
(とても難しいインタビューでした。でも、おちょこをsmall glassと言ったのはまずかった、とあとで気付きました。)
