B : Good afternoon. Sorry to make you wait a long time.
I don't mind, it's OK.
B : What's your name?
My name is ....
B : Where are you from?
I'm from .... It's in the northern part of Osaka.
B : What is it famous for?
There are many wild monkeys, little water falls, and many maple trees.
B : Oh, is that so?
Yes, it is a nice place. Why don't you come?
B : Will you show me around?
A : Now, I'll ask you some questions.
A : Why are Japanese so eager to get qualifications?
Well, Japan is suffering from the lingering recession. Now, it is difficult to get a job. So getting a qualification is necessary to land a job. Even if he or she is in a certain company, he or she will be fired at any time because of downsizing.
A : Where do you get qualifications? Do you study at culture centers or some schools?
Yes, we do, but I studied by correspondence. I got some qualifications through distant learning.
A : Do you make new year's resolutions in Japan?
A : Do you write it down on paper? We write it and then hand it to our mothers.
No, we don't do that. We just pray at shrines. My new year's resolution was to pass this test. So I need your help.
A : OK, it's time to stop.
OK, thank you very much. Goodbye.
