B: Good Afternoon.

Good Afternoon. Yoroshiku Onegai Shimasu.

B: Please tell us your name.

My name is ********.

B: Where did you come from today?

I came from Tsu City in Mie prefecture. It takes about two hours to here
by train, Kintetsu line.

A: Oh, I heard Tsu City is a very beautiful city. Is it so? I have never
been there, though.

(津市が美しい町だ、なんて今まで聞いた事がなかったので、ちょっと戸惑う。私
が好きな伊賀市のことを言いたくなったので・・・)
Oh, Yes. And Iga City is also very beautiful.

A: Oh, is the city far from Tsu City?

It takes about one hour by Kintetsu line from Tsu City.

A: Ok. Now, I will ask you a few questions.
(伊賀市のことを聞いてくれないのか・・・・残念!)

A: Now, there are many discount restaurants in Japan. Do you think it is
because of economy condition of Japan?

Yes. I think so. Because the economy in Japan is not so good, people do
not want to spend a lot of money to have dinner outside.

A: If Japanese economy is growing up, do you think people will not go to those
restaurants any more?

Well, I think people will go to discount restaurants even if the economy
is growing up.

A: OK. Next question. What is Golden Week?

(え〜、まさか季節はずれのゴールデン・ウィークがでるなんて…
創作するしかない…)
Golden week is a long vacation starting from the end of April to the
beginning of May.(かなり絶望的・・・・)
During the time, there are some national holidays. And most companies
regards days between such national holidays as holidays.
So, most people can take about 7 days or 10 days holidays. I think it is
not so long vacation.
(試験官Bが満面の笑顔で私を見ていた。きっと私が必死の形相をしていたんだと思い
ます・・・)

A: (笑いながら) Oh, I think it is long vacation. Do you avoid traveling
during Golden Week?

Yes, because during Golden Week, most scenic locations are really
crowded, and the price of accommodations and transportation are higher.
So, I try to avoid traveling during Golden Week. But, I cannot take long
vacation except Golden Week, so.....

A: (とてもうれしそうな笑顔で) Oh, yes, right. Then, what is Sento?

(これまた予想外な質問・・・・)
Sento is a public bath house. Sento used to be popular and there were many
Sento. But now, they are decreasing because each family has their own bath
at their house.
(単数形、複数形、めちゃめちゃ・・)
However, Sento is still popular, especially among senior people. They get
together there, talk with each other and have a good time there.
(試験官A、B共に、うれしそうな笑顔で私を見てる)

A: Ok. Thank you. That's all.

Thank you. Arigatou Gozaimashita.

以上です。
学院長先生がおっしゃていたように、「英語力もないし、日本のこともしらないけれ
ど、熱意はある!」ってところを見せて合格しよう!の心意気で臨みました。
試験官方が、とてもうれしそう〜〜〜に私を見ててくれたので、不安になることはあ
りませんでしたが、面接中、地上1mくらいに浮かんでいるような感じでした。
こうして自分の回答をふり返ってみると、試験官の言葉を言い換えてるだけじゃん、
と思うところが多々有ります。もっと勉強しなきゃ、とつくづく感じました。
