Good afternoon.

A: Good afternoon. Put your bag on the seat.

Thank you.

A: Please tell your name and where you live.

My name is M.... N. M... is my family. I live in Tetta Town in the Atetsu district in the northern part of Okayama Prefecture between Hiroshima Prefecture and Hyogo Prefecture whose capital is Kobe.(ゆっくりはっきり言った。住んでいるところは無名なのでこのように説明した。)

A: Is the place where you live a populated city or the countryside? Please tell me about where you live?

My town is in the countryside which has a rather large land area, over 200?, but its population is small, around 3,000, blessed with natural beauty.

A: Are there steep mountains? (もっと他にもIs it an agricultural area?などとも言っていたが、これが印象に残った。)

Actually, it's on the skirt of the Chugoku Mountains, but we don't have steep mountains, still mountainous, though.

A: Where would you recommend when I visit your town?

There are no nationwide famous attractions, but we have many places worthy of visit.
First, I would recommend Kinugake-no-Taki Falls. Kinugake is literally hanging(実際にはhoistingと言ったかもしれない) silk. 
It's small but really beautiful like white silk hanging.
Next, the biggest
parent-child-grandchild watermill.
The parent mill is 12 meters in diameter.
And we have some other spots to visit.

A: OK. What is your job?

I teach English at junior high school.
But English I have dealt with in lessons is so limited and is not satisfactory to me. I would like to work in a position using English.
A Tour guide is very suitable for me.
So I've been studying and studying for 13 years since 1992.
I have studied every waking moment("waking"が聞き取れなかったようなので)while I am awake.

A: Is this first time?

No, it's been for 13 years.
But twice or three times I didn't take the exam,
so this is the 10th time to take and the first time to pass the first examination.

A: Tenth time!! Then this is a big day for you.

Yes, very big. I am very happy to be here.

A: Then, let's talk about what you like?

(こういう虫の良い状況も考慮外ではなかったが、これは大丈夫という分野がなかったので)Thank you very much, but I will do my best in answering your questions.

A: Give me some suggestions?

Easy ones, please.


A: Are you married? Do you have children? How old are they?

I have two daughters, elder one is 5 years old, younger 3 years old.

A: What do you worry about your daughter's future?

(本当は教育のこととかいじめの問題について答えるのがいいのだろうと思ったが、ここはお言葉に甘えてあまり思ってもいない次のことを言った。)
I'm really worried about the partner who will be a husband for my daughters.

A: It's about the far future.(笑)

Yes, but my colleagues and friends who have little daughters often say the similar things.

A: What is "Kateinai Rikon(家庭内離婚)"?

Kateinai Rikon is a divorce・・・(正式には届け出をしていないというようなことを言いたかったが)・・・at home.(と言ったらB試験官は満足そうに頷いた)
Legally, it's not a divorce, but actually there is no contact (本当
はcommunicationの方が良かったか)between the wife and husband.

A: Don't tell me that you will get "kateinai rikon" by your daughters in the future. Thank you.

Is that all?

A: Yes.

Thank you. (Have a nice day.とか言おうかと思ったが、あんまり調子に乗ってもいけないと思い、部屋に出た。)

※まさに5、6分だったと思います。とても短く感じた。
