B： Tell me what’s your name and where do you live?
My name is ○○○○. I live in Minami Ward, Kyoto city.
A： You live near here. Most people came here from far places. You must be the person who lives the nearest.
However, it took nearly 30 minutes. I live at the edge of Kyoto City.
A： How did you come?
On foot, on train.
A： It must be a quiet area.
Yes, it is.
A： Why do you think many Japanese people can’t speak English well, though
there are many language schools?
A： I heard in elementary schools these days, there are native speakers.
In junior high schools and high schools, there are many native speakers, but there are very few native speakers in elementary schools. Actually homeroom teachers are teaching English.
A： It must be hard because they are not trained to teach English.
Yes, many homeroom teachers don’t want to teach English. I think the government has to take strong measures to teach English in elementary schools.
A： What do you think about space tours?
I think that is a very good idea. I hear JTB recently has promoted a space tour. Only rich people can do that.
A： Do you know how much that is ?
Well, I don’t know, but maybe billions.
A： What’s geta?
Geta are wooden clogs with two supports raised off the ground. Geta are
worn by maiko, or apprenticeship geiko. Also, they are worn when wearing
an informal kimono.
