(再びB質問)How’s the economy of Japan?

But the Japanese yen is strong now, it’s very difficult for foreign tourists to come to Japan.(確かに..でも答えは用意していたので)

Well, Japan’s strong yen cannot be changed by Japan only, but Japan can less...the Japanese government should make transportation fee or accomodation fee inexpensive.(Aにっこり)

(二人顔を見合わせて)That's all. Thank you for a nice talk.

Thank you so much.Good-by.

受験の感想

昨年と違い、まさかnativeでない日本人の試験官も質問されるとは意外で、どちらがメインか迷いました。一応こちらを向いてくれている方に視線は向けるようにしました。nativeの方のspeedも会話の流れも非常にnaturalで質問だけに終わっていた昨年とは異なっていたのではと思いますが、これは試験官による差なのかどうかは、さだかではありません。全般的に見て、Bのnativeの方が主でAの方が時間と進行の調整役を受け持っていると感じました。経済の質問が復活し、一通り準備していて良かったと思いました。今回の結果は天命を待つのみですが、2次対策はやはり早くから準備しておくのは正しかったと実感、ハローの様々な2次対策は大正解。

ハローの講師、授業内容、教材、その他(メルマガ、ホームページ)についての感想

通信受講は何度も繰り返しやり直し出来るのでよっかたです。<英語第2次試験対策模擬面接クラス>も何回か受講しましたが、本番を実感でき非常に役立ちました。
