B : Please sit down at the seat.

Yes, thank you.

A : Please, tell me your name.

My name is ....

A : Where do you live?

I live in ....

A : OK. I'll ask some questions. First, this is a question about fashion. Why do fashion magazines in Japan often use foreign models?

There are several reasons for this. One reason is that those fashion magazines are for the Western cloth, so it is natural that those clothes are suited for the Western models. Another reason is that after World War II, Japanese have admired the Western culture and fashion. Therefore, Japanese like the Western fashion and many foreign models are used in those magazine.

(セミナーでやった質問が出た!と思ったがうまく思い出せず、文法もっとむちゃくちゃだったと思う)

A : OK, next question. What do you think of temporary workers.

Unfortunately, Japanese economy is very stagnant now, so there are not enough full-time jobs. Therefore temporary workers are increasing.

(質問の答えになってないことに気付き、慌てて続ける)
But I think temporary worker is not bad way, because temporary workers are easy to transfer and change the company. As the result, the work becomes effective.
(流動性が高いの仕事が効率化するといいたかったが、うまく言えず落ち込む)

A : Is there problems about the insurance for temporary workers.

I think compare to full-time workers, temporary workers lack the insurance. However, I worked for several companies, and there, temporary workers are well insured, so I think the situation is changing.
(強引に話しをすすめてしまった)

A : OK, next question. What is Higan?

Higan refers to the periods around the autumnal equinox and the vernal equinox. Buddhist temples hold special services and many people pay their respect at their ancestors' graves.

A : Is it a public holiday?

Yes, the autumnal equinox day is a public holiday. It is September 23rd this year.
(よく考えると彼岸自体は祭日でないし、秋分の日だけ答えたのはおかしいとあとで気付く。これで終わりと思ったらまだ質問されてあせった)

A : What is the difference between Onsen and Sento?

Yes. Onsen are natural hot-springs. Japan is rich in natural hot-springs. Sento is public bath-houses. Before, there were a lot of sento, public bath-houses in Japan, because many people didn't have their own bathroom in their home.

A : When was that?

It's about 20 to 30 years ago.
(銭湯とは何かの説明がほとんどできていないのに余計な情報を言ってしまった、しかも20年前はおかしい)

A : My question concluded. Thank you.

Thank you very much.
