受験者(9):女性 ← BACK   NEXT →
 


Good afternoon.(入りながら挨拶。小さい部屋なので驚く)

B: (日本語で)荷物をそこに置いて下さい。(2つ椅子があり迷ったので聞いた)

C: Can I have your name please?

My name is...

C: Where do you live?

I live in Okayama Prefecture.(実際は仕事で京都に来ることが多く、ほぼ京都在住が、住所はまだ岡山なので)

A: Hi. My name is...(名前が長くて聞き取れなかった)

A: I will ask you some questions. Imagine I am a tourist.

Sure.

A: Do you live in Okayama City?

Actually, I live in Hayashima town, which is between Okayama City and Kurashiki City.(だいぶ落ち着いてきた)

A: I know there is a museum in Kurashiki. What can I see there?

It's Ohara museum. You can see Western paintings there.(もう少し詳しく調べておくべきだった)

A: What kind?

Claude Monet's painting is very famous.

A: What else?

Ohara museum's collection was made by Mr. Ohara. You can see Western paintings and Japanese paintings.
(竹下夢二のことについて突っ込まれると思ったので、もう突っ込まないでほしいと思いながら答えた。)

A: If you want to take travelers to Kurashiki, what else can they do in Kurashiki?

I can take them to Craft Museum, local sourvenior shops, and people can explore "Warehouse Village" area and they can see Willow trees and beautiful area.
(もっと玩具博物館であるとか具体的なことを言い、魅力のある所だと説明すべきだった)

A: Do you work?

Yes I do.

A: What do you do?

I work for a tour company.

A: Oh, do you take tourists?

No, I make reservations.(もっと話すことはあったが当たり障りのないところでやめおいた)

A: Why do you want to be a tour guide?

I like talking to people. I'd like to introduce Japanese culture to foreign tourists more. (moreは余計だった)

A: What aspects of Japan do you want to introduce?

I would like to introduce many gardens, temples and shrines, not only historical buildings, but also Japanese authentic beautiful food and tradition. (あまりにも漠然としていてまとまりがなかったように思う)

A: What do you think about foreign peoples's stereotype about Japan?
(確かこのような内容だったが、正確な文は定かではない)

People think that we are very shy and still wear kimono.
(なぜ"shy"と言ったのか自分でも分らないが)
We are Westernized now, so I want things from Western countries.

A: I will ask a different question. What's the difference between jinja and temple (tera)?

The biggest difference which is obvious is - In shrine, there is a gateway, called torii. And in(at) temples, there are Buddhist Statues and artifacts.
(もっと神社と寺の違いについて内容を触れるべきだったが、長くなりそうでつまりそうなのでここまでで止めておいた。すると次の質問へ移ってくれた)

A: Do you think people prepare for a big earthquake after the Great Hanshin Earthquake?

I don't think so. We are still not aware of the fact that we might have a big earthquake in the near future.
We need to prepare for emergency kits and the government cannot depend on bureaucratic actions.
The government's response was not quick.
The government should take some measures quickly to deal with this situation.
We need to set up some volunteer organizations.

A: Is volunteer work more common in Japan?

It didn't used to be common, but after the Great Hanshin Earthquake nearly 10 years ago, we thought volunteers were important.
And many volunteers helped evacuated people out this time.
(evacuate が出てこなかった)

A: OK. It was nice talking with you.

Thank you.
