B： Good morning. Take a seat, please.
B： What is your name? And where did you come from today?
My name is ○○○○. I live in Sakai City and came from Sakai City.
A： Oh, Sakai City is a famous city for historical things.
I hope so.
A： Well, I am going to ask you some questions about Japan and Japanese culture.
A： What is the reason why the number of single women is getting bigger and bigger?
Well, in the old days, it was very difficult for young women to get a good job to support themselves. That’s why they had to marry a man.
A： They can live with their parents.
Yes, they can. And now the economy is good, and young women can get a good position to support themselves. They don’t have to marry.
A： Do you think this trend leads to a low birth rate?
Yes, I think so.
A： What measures do you think the government should implement?
It is important for the government to implement some measures so that young women can work and, at the same time, bring up children.
A： Do you think it is good for the government to introduce foreigners as workers at elderly people’s facilities?
Could you ask me once again, please?
A： (repeats the same question)
Yes, it is a good idea. I heard that many Philippine women have come to Japan to work at such facilities. But they have to learn the Japanese language and culture beforehand.
A： Do you think they don’t have enough education about the language and culture as yet?
I think they don’t have much opportunity to learn the Japanese language and culture. They have to learn before coming to Japan.
A： （うなずいて）Well, time is up.
Thank you very much.
