A : Please have a seat.
B : Please tell us your name.
My name is ....
B : Where are you from?
I'm from Osaka, Takatsuki City.
A : Now, I'll ask you some questions.
A : Why do Japanese people often exchange business cards?
Well, we exchange business cards to know each other's positions ... if their positions are high, we need to show respect to them.
A : Nowadays, there are a lot of crime by young people. What do you think about this?
This is a very serious problem. I think it is because nowadays there are a lot of parents who can't control their children. Parents should learn how to ... control their children. Parents ... I mean, some parents only think about themselves, not about their children. There a lot of mothers working. I think this is good, but they have to have time to talk to their children.
A : Next question. A lot of Japanese cartoons, ... like ... what's that ... something like "oshioki yo"?
Yes! Thank you. It is very popular abroad. What do you think about it?
I'm proud of this Japanese culture. I think Japanese cartoons depict not only what is virtue or evil, but also romance, politics, or even philosophy. So they are different from Western cartoons. They are more like Western movies.
A : You mean Japanese cartoons are more sophisticated?
Well, ... yes.
A : Do you think it could be a step to reading books, or is it that people who read comic books don't read books?
Well, it is a problem if people only read comic books, and they don't read books at all. But my mother doesn't read comic books nor regular books. It think it's better to read comic books than to read nothing.
A : This concludes my question.
