A : Why do Japanese people have many business cards?

Because Japan is a hierarchical society where we need to know people's positions and titles when they speak to each other. The way to greet people differs according to their positions and titles. We use honorific words for people who are older and higher in position. So business cards are really necessary for us to greet people.

A : What is "bunkasai"?

You mean cultural festivals?

A : I don't know. Tell me what "bunkasai" is.

Cultural festivals are an annual event at high schools. High school students present and demonstrate what they have achieved. They perform and show their art. Some of them open food stands and shops to make money for the school.

A : What do you think about teaching English at elementary school?

It is a good thing because the students learn and get to know not only English but also cross-cultural things through studying English. Learning languages broadens the students' horizons.

A : What languages other than English should be taught at elementary school?

Chinese, because China is a rapidly growing country. The students should learn Chinese to promote good relations with China.
