(去年はメインの試験管に高槻と宝塚を間違われたままメインの試験管のペースのままに面接がすすみ、それをただフォローしているうちに面接が終ってしまったので、箕面の国定公園の近くの大阪北部としてみました。一番緊張した瞬間でした。)

C: A-ha.(微笑)

A: OK. (微笑)

B:頷く

(通じたのでほっとした)

A: Now, I’d like to as you some questions.

Yes.

A: Why do young people hang around places where they can often meet foreigners.

For one thing, youngsters tend to consider foreign people to be “cool”. So they go to those kinds of places to have opportunities to meet foreigners. Also, youngsters nowadays have more opportunities to study foreign languages than before. So, they try to find opportunities to communicate with foreigners in foreign language.
(なるべくネイティブなイメージより勉強の場、コミニュケーションの場を持つ為という方向に持っていきたくて、こう答えた)

A: A-ha.(微笑) Few places like this in Takatsuki?

Yes, there are few places in Takatsuki. But there are more opportunities in Osaka city, where my office is located.
(高槻では少ないが、職場の近くは外国人と話す機会を多く持てるのでこう答えた。もう少し長めに回答できればよかったのですが、ここで止まりました)

A: Oh, Osaka city. More places. Do you often go to those places?

(盛り場によく行くのか?というようニュアンスかも…と少し不安だったが)

Yes, I go there to communicate with people in English. When I was a university student, I was not good at speaking English. After graduating from university, I studied hard to speak English well. Now, II often have good time communicating with foreign people in English.(盛り場に行くというイメージが強くならないように、前向き応えようとした)

A: OK. Completely different question. Why are the victims of child abuses, not by strangers but by people like teachers increasing these days?

Ah, child abuses. For one thing, adults live in a stressful society. Parents get rid of their stress by beating their kids.
Kids are bullied not by their classmates but sadly, by their teachers because kids don’t have ability to fight back. Also, nuclear families are increasing these days. There are few opportunities for children to share their stress on raising children with the others. About thirty to forty years ago, they were able to talk with their parents about their problems.

A: Ah. Big family with grand parents?

Yes.

A: Now another question. What is tsukimi?

Tsukimi is “Moon Viewing”
(頭の中から記憶を引き出す)

Japanese people traditionally have moon viewing in autumn. We make offerings such as pampas grass and rice dumplings to the moon.(もう少し文があったな…と少しずつ思い出す)We can see beautiful full moon in mid-September. Those who like sake drink sake at the moon viewing.(何とかつないで300 選に書いて
あった内容は少なくともカバーできてほっとした。でもこれで一杯一杯でした。

A: Do Japanese still place importance on tradition?
 
Yes, older people in their forties and fifties tend to value tradition. But I suppose young people don’t value tradition.

A: OK. Now, time is up. Thank you.

(特に引っ掛かる部分なくすんなり終ってしまった。でも3問とも少なくとも回答はちゃんとできたとほっとした。3度目の正直。今振り返ると、淡白で簡単な回答すぎたかもと思いますが、3問ともスーッと薙がれていった感じのまま終り、特に問題はなかったように思えました。

Than you for your time.

おじぎして外へ、全般通して物腰やわらかく、前向きに、勉強してきましたという姿勢で、笑顔を心がけました。。。
