受験者(38):男性 ← BACK   NEXT →


Good afternoon.

(入室と共に。応答なし。椅子に座りかけたところで試験官Bが何かを言ったが不明。きっちり座り、3人とアイコンタクトが取れてから、)

B: What's your name?

My name is ○○○○

B: Where are you from?

I 'm from ○○○○ city, between Kyoto and Osaka.

A: I'll ask you a few questions. A foreign tourist just arrived at Kansai Airport for the first time. Where would you take him?

Oh, I would like to take him to the Kinkakuji, Golden Pavilion in Kyoto. The other day, the Prime Minister Koizumi took US President to the Golden Pavilion. Mr. Bush said, in spite of himself, "It's beautiful," when he saw the Pavilion and autumn leaves reflected on the surface of the pond. So I'd like to take him there.

(冠詞や構文に頓着なく一気に喋る)

A: What's the difference between Kinkakuji and Ginkakuji?

Kinkakuij is cheerful and Ginkakuji has serene atmosphere.

(まだ何か言おうと思っていると、最初の質問に時間がかかったからか、直ちに質問される)

A: When were they built?

Well,…

(少し考え、言い淀みながらも思い切って)

Kinkakuji was built in the 14th century, and Ginkakuji was built about less than 100 years later.

A: OK! Do you have a job?

No, I have no job.

A: Were you a salaried worker?

Yes.

A: Why do Japanese work overtime so much? Did you work overtime?

Yes, I did. When other people work, I feel uneasy if I don't work.

A: OK. What do you think about the jellyfish?

Pardon?

(jellyfishの意味がすぐに思い浮かばず、聞き直すと試験官Aが説明してくれたが、やはり分からない)

Sorry. Would you mind…what do you mean by jellyfish?

(試験官Aが横の試験官Bに尋ね、試験官Bは仕方なさそうに小声で)

B: くらげ

Oh! They are coming to the Japan Sea. Researchers are studying to make use of them as food or fertilizer.

A: OK. We'll finish the interview.

I'm a little sweating. Thank you.
