Good morning.

A,B: Good morning.

B: Please have a seat. Please put your bag. ・・・・・Please tell us your name.
My name is *******.

B: Where do you come from?

I came from Osaka City.

A: I have some questions. I'd like to talk about movies. Do Japanese like dubbed movies or subtitled movies?

I think Japanese like dubbed movie because most Japanese, unfortunately,
don't understand English. If subtitled movie...Some people say they don't understand the story while they're reading subtitles. So I think Japanese like dubbed movie.

A: OK. There are many bicycles around stations. What do you think about it?
What should we do?(という主旨の質問だったと思う)

Bicycle? Actually, I use a bicycle to go to my workplace. I go to the nearest station. Stations have parking space for bicycles. But some people don't use them because they don't want to pay the rent. And, the parking space is not enough. I think stations have to prepare more parking space for riders.

A: Like underground parking?

Yes, but I'm afraid that underground parking is dangerous for women. They go home late at night and they don't want to go to underground parking.

A: Good point. Next question. What do you present at weddings and funerals?

Present?(質問の意図が分からなかったが、聞いたとおり答えることにした。)

A: At a wedding.

I present ... flowers or home appliances newly wed couple will use in the near future.

A: At funerals?

(葬式にプレゼントするのかなぁと思いつつ)Maybe I present flowers or money.

A: When you present something, you receive a present in return. Why is it?
(物
をもらってお返しをするのはなぜか、というような主旨の質問)

It is common practice in Japan. If you are presented something, you return something to the sender. I think it is for maintaining the harmony.

A: What do you receive in return?

I was presented home appliance, towels, or ceramic dishes, something like that.(とっさに思いつかなくてhome applianceと言ってしまったが、さっきプレゼントするといったのにと思っていたら、案の定つっこまれた)

A: You present home appliance and receive home appliance?

It depends on the situation.(ちょっと苦しいが、とっさに出てしまった。)

A: What is Butsudan?

Butsudan is family altar. We pray for ancestors. I also have Butsudan in my house. I offer flowers or rice to the altar.

A: So every house has butsudan? Apartment also?

Yes. Most people have butsudan if they are not Christians or worshipping other religions.

A: It is conclusion of my questions. Thank you.

Thank you very much.

聞かれること全てが新鮮で、夢中で喋っているうちに終わってしまった。喋りながら考えていたので、まとまりのない回答になっていたと思います。日頃の実力がものをいうテストだとつくづく感じました。
