Good morning.

A, B: Good morning.

B: Please put your bag on the chair and have a seat.

Thank you.

B: May I have your name?

My name is .....

B: Where do you live?

I'm from ... city, in western part of Tokyo.

A: First, I want to ask you what the bottom of your bag is for. What's inside?
(カバンの底のふくらみについて聞かれた)

This is a case for my folding umbrella.

A: Oh, I see. Now I'm going to ask you some questions about Japan. Why do Japanese people live a long life?

I hear Japanese centenarians will exceed the 20,000 mark this year.

B: That's right.

I think there are some reasons. One reason is the Japanese have a healthy diet. Also, Japan is rich in natural beauty.
(2個目以降の理由が思い浮かばず、あまり理由になっていなくてあせってしまった。)

B: Do your parents or grand parents live long?

My grand parents are gone now, but they lived longer than the average life span.

A: Do you think people in the country live longer?
(親切に誘導してくれているような感じだった。)

Yes. I think people who live in the countryside live a longer life than those in the city.

A: Ok. The next question. What do you think of electronic dictionaries?

I'm also a user of an electronic dictionary. I think it's convenient indeed.

A: Do you think it's good to use the dictionary?

Well, I think it's good for people who have good knowledge of English, but I would not recommend it to the beginners.

A: Ok. The other day, I looked up the word "igo" in an electronic dictionary. So will you explain "igo" for me?

Ok. Igo is a Japanese board game. It is played by two people. It looks like the Western chess but the rule is quite different. The player who occupies a wider territory will win the game.

A: Oh, I see. It's time for now. Thank you for coming today.

Thank you very much.
(自分としては、後悔ばかりが残り、手応えが感じられずに終わったという感じであった。)
