部屋に入り、Helloと声をかける。
May I put my bag here?(と入り口近くの椅子を指さす)
B: Yes, you can put your bag(と椅子を指さされる)
(椅子に座ると、私の大きなお腹を見て、)
B:(英語で)体にかけるものはいるか?
A: Would you like to drink this water?
(と自分のペットボトルを指さし、交互に気遣って下さるので、手を振ってThank youと答える)
Nice to meet you(と言うと、試験官Aに自己紹介される。)
A: Please tell me your name and where you are from.
My name is XXX. I'm from Otsu City in Shiga Prefecture.
A: I'm a tourist. Please answer my questions.
O.K.
A: You seem to be expecting a baby.いつ産まれる予定なのか(英語で)?
My baby is due in January.
A: Oh! It's so soon! You have only two months. You look so smart.(私はこんなに大きな妊婦だった、と手で示す)
Last month, I moved to Otsu City from Toyama prefecture.
I was very busy, so my baby couldn't become bigger, I guess.
A:たくさんストレスがあったのね(英語で)(と同情される)
Not stress…
A: Why do you take this exam this year?(なぜわざわざ今年?という感じ)
(妊娠を予期していなかったのだとは言えず)
As I mentioned before, I lived in other Prefectures, Toyama and Ishikawa Prefectures. And I realized that Japan has many charms such as local foods, beautiful scenery, traditional culture and so on. I thought I would like to show such appeals to foreigners.
A: O.K. In Kyoto, where do you take me especially?
In this season, maple trees are very beautiful. So, Tofukuji-temple is a good place, because it has 2,000 maple trees. It's very beautiful. And this is the harvest season.
You can enjoy eating persimmons, pears and apples…
A: Where?
Where? You mean fruits?
A: Yes.
After going to Tofukuji-temple, please go to Nishiki market.
There are many shops of fruits, vegetables, ceramic wares and fish. You can buy not only fruits but also souvenirs.
A: I see. What kind of problems will younger generation face in the future?
Now, some younger generation don't have full-time jobs. The number of younger generation who has temporary jobs is increasing. So, they will face the shortage of pension in the future.
A: I see. In Otsu, where is the good place?
Ishiyama Temple is a good place. You can also enjoy maple trees. And it is a national treasure.
(国宝の塔がある、と言おうとしたが、そうは言ってないと思う)
A: Why is it a national treasure?
Because the shape is unique like this.(と手で示す)
It is called "Tahoto" in Japanese. It means it includes many treasures.
A: I see. What's the difference between Kyoto and Nara?
Nara is compact than Kyoto. One day is enough for sightseeing. But in Kyoto, you need to think which part you would like to go. That's the biggest difference.
A: O.K. That's all. I enjoyed the conversation with you.
Thank you very much.
B: Take care.
Thank you.

細かい言い回しがうまく出てこなくて、つたない英語であったと思うが、聞かれたことに対して、沈黙することなく答えられたので良かった。3人目の妊娠と引越しで2次試験に対して準備ができなかったのでつらい思いで、2次対策セミナーと2回の模擬面接に参加したが、そこで自分の言葉でcolorfulに表現することを学んで、緊張をほぐしてもらえた。感謝しています。
