Thank you.
(荷物を横に置き、着席。)

B : Can I have your name please?

My name is XXXXXX.

B : Where do you live?

I live in Go-do-cho, Gifu Prefecture.

B : Oh, you come from Gifu. How long does it take?

It took around two hours by train.

A : OK, I will ask you some questions.

Yes.

A : Why are there many Pachinko shops in Japan?

Well,(予期してなかった質問なので戸惑いながらとりあえず質問の内容を平叙文で言いかえて時間稼ぎする)
There are many Pachinko shops in Japan, because a pachinko shop is an only legal gambling place in Japan. Other gambling like the casino is illegal in Japan.

A :(納得した様子)
What do you think about the rise of foreigners in Japan?

As you know, Japan is the second largest economic power in the world. So the job demand is huge, especially from Asian countries. And I think we need immigrants in the near future.

A: Next question. What is the Golden Week?

The Golden Week is long holiday from the end of April to the beginning of May. It has several holidays,for example,29th April is Green Day, which was originally Emperer Showa's birthday, and May 5th is Children's Day.
(3日の憲法記念日、4日の国民の祝日が説明できなかったことが悔やまれる)

A: Are there any events in Golden week?

Yes.For example,May 1 st is May day.And we have Dontaku in Fukuoka.(苦し紛れに出たがどんたくの説明必要だったか)

A: OK.What do you think about subbed(と聞こえたがはっきりせず) movies in Japan?

(質問は3つと想定していたので、4つめが出てきて驚く。Subbedと聞こえたものが何かわからず。字幕か?それとも洋画の日本語タイトルのことか)

 I'm not sure of subbed movies.

A : Subtitled movies are the ones with captions below the screen.

Well,I think we need subtitled movies,because we can't recognize the atmosphere which the original movie has.

A: Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

(ネイティブ試験官は女性。英国人か、米国人かは不明だが発音からすると米国人か。最初の質問のパチンコについてはそれなりにうまく答えられたと思うが、あとはぼろぼろ。)
