C： Good afternoon.
C： You can put your bag and …things on the chair.
Would you like to check my …?
C： I don’t need it. Please sit down.
C： Please tell me your name and where you are from.
My name is ○○○○. I live in ○○○○ with my husband and I have no job now.
（no job のところで、Bの方が笑う）
A： Nice to meet you.
A： Oh, she’s the first person who came from ○○○○, isn’t she?
Oh, really. Nice to meet you, too.
A： I’m going to ask some questions. These days a lot of people use these bottles all around. Why do people use these bottles of tea or other drinks?
Well, because it is portable. And, you can buy it everywhere and it is lighter than thermos bottles when there is no water or drink in it.
A： Yes, people used to carry thermos bottles but now everyone has these bottles.
A： Now, I’m going to ask another question. What do you think about the
increasing use of credit cards? I mean, people buy too much?
Because I tend to buy much when I pay by card than when I pay in cash. I don’t feel like paying when I use my card. I think it’s because I don’t touch the cash.
A： I see. So, it is dangerous. But I heard smaller shops don’t like to accept cards, don’t they?
Oh, smaller shops, some restaurants or souvenir shops don’t like to be paid by card. They prefer to be paid in cash. It is safer.
A： Safer to… . Oh, shops, yes.
Yes, they can get cash anyway.
A： I see. I’m going to ask another question.
Oh, I like them very much.
It’s the name of Japanese sweets. Often made from Azuki sweet soy beans and flour and…
And they have… no, they have beautiful shapes, flowers and fruits and things like that. Less sugar is used than in Western sweets.
A： And have you eaten them lately?
No, I forbid it.
I forbid to eat them for this test.
A： Oh, how long haven’t you eaten the sweets?
When I heard I have passed the first test.
A： When is it?
It is eighth of this month. So it’s about three weeks.
A： Oh, that’s a long time. When are you going to allow you to eat them?
Just after this test.
A： Oh, I’m sorry the test is late.
It’s OK. I came from ○○○○, so it is convenient the test is late.
A： So are you going to go somewhere to buy sweets after this?
Yes, I am.
A： Where are you going to?
I’m going to Isetan department store at Kyoto station. It’s a …
Kyoto is the best place to buy Japanese sweets.
A： So are you going to buy Japanese sweets, or Western sweets?
I… maybe… probably buy Japanese sweets, because you mentioned it.
A： I see. It’s time to end, which means time for sweets.
（It’s time to finish かも。思い出せないが、にこにこしておっしゃる）
A： Thank you. I’m glad to talk to you.
I’m glad to talk to you, too.
C： Thank you
Thank you. Have a nice afternoon.
A： You, too. Good bye.
C： Good bye.
