A, B: Good morning.
B: Please put your bag on the chair and have a seat.
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?
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.
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?
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.
