受験者(36):女性 ← BACK   NEXT →


Good afternoon.

A, B, C: Good afternoon.

C: Please put your bag on the table.

Thank you.

C: May I have your name?

My name is ○○○○.

C: Please tell me where you live.

I live in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture.

A: Oh, so many people come from Kobe today.

Oh, really?

A: Yes. Do you all go to the same school?

I go to Hello Guide Academy, and it is popular among those who take this exam.

A: Yes. It really is popular. Now I will ask you a few questions.

All right.

A: Why do a lot of Japanese people go to English conversation schools?

We study English for over 6 years at school. But emphasis is placed on reading, writing and grammar. So we don’t have a lot of chances to speak English. So we go to English conversation schools to improve our English conversation skills.

A: But even if they study at English conversation schools, they are still shy in front of foreigners. Why?

Yes. We don’t have confidence in speaking in front of foreigners. And this is partly because of our culture of modesty. Standing out is not encouraged at schools and in society in Japan. (少し論点がおかしいことに気付くが、しかたがない)

A: Next question. What do you think about commercial space travel? Do you think it will be realized?

Yes. I think so. A lot of people have already been to space.

A: Yes, but they didn’t go into space on a commercial flight.

No, but I think commercial space travel will become a reality in the near future.

A: Would you like to go into space?

No. I’m afraid of going into space.

A: You have many places to go on the earth, right?

Yes.

A: That’s all for today. Thank you.

Thank you.
(笑顔だけはなんとか維持しましたが、緊張して声が小さかったように思います。もっと積極性を出せればよかったと今になって思います)
