質疑応答

Please come in.

Thank you.

Put your bag on the sofa.

Sure.

How are you?

I am frightened.

Relax! What is your name? And where are you from?

My name is ......... I'm from .........

How did you come here?

I came here by my husband's car.

That's great.

I have a daughter in Kyoto. So he came to see her, too.

I'm going to give you some questions. What is the Nara period?

Well, the Nara period is the time when the foundation of Japan was made.

Foundation?

Yes. You know the Great Buddha of Nara? It is the greatest sculpture cast in bronze in the world. It was founded in the Nara period by Emperor Shomu. So Japan was secured and protected by the Emperor in the Nara period.

Next question. What is Hakone?

Hakone is a mountainous area which is rich in natural beauty and has a hot spring resort.

Is it near Osaka?

No, it is far from Osaka. It is about one and a half hour ride from Tokyo.

I want to visit a Japanese garden? What garden would you recommend?

I recommend Ryoanji Temple or Daitokuji Temple in Kyoto. It is composed

of rock and sand. Rock represents mountains or islands, and sand represents water. It is peculiar to Japanese gardens.

What do you think about recent Japanese economy?

Well, I think it's terrible. I hear young people including college graduates can't find a job. And also middle- aged men are forced to to quit their jobs.

Yes. What do you think is the reason of this economy?

Well, I think it's because Japan depends on the U.S. too much. So it is easily influenced.

You mean Japan should stop the trade with the U.S.?

No. I mean the rate of dependency on the U.S. should be decreased.

So that's all for today. Are you going home today?

Yes. We had dinner with our daughter, and after that we will go home.

受験の感想

ちょっと予想と違う質問に動揺しましたが、<英語第2次試験対策模擬面接クラス>で黙っていてはいけないと言われたので、とにかく話を続けようと努力しました。
とても緊張しましたが、面接官の方が優しくしてくれたので、あっという間に終わっていました。

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

<英語第2次試験対策模擬面接クラス>はとても役に立ちました。庭の話は<英語第2次試験対策模擬面接クラス>でもやったのでラッキーと思って答えました。ハローへは三重県から車で行ったので途中1時間も渋滞に巻き込まれ、15分遅刻したのに、休み時間まで授業してくれたアシュレイ先生始め、とてもわかりやすく丁寧に教えて頂き、本当に楽しかったです。ありがとうございました。
