A: Good morning.

Good morning.
(相手が何か言う前に、荷物をイスにおいてしまう。〔たずねるべきだった〕)

A: Please sit down. How are you?

Fine, thank you.

A: May I ask your name and where you live.

My name is ..., and I live in ... Tokyo. I'm originally from Shizuoka prefecture.

A: I'll ask you some questions about Japanese culture, and it takes five minutes. The first question is, why in the advertisement in magazines or TV, western models appear so frequently?

To be honest, they are prettier in shape, figure than Japanese. Usually they are taller, with blond hair, actually the Japanese people are trying to imitate to be Caucasian in order to identify themselves.
(相手が無反応なので、とても不安になる)
And I think it can stimulate our consumption mind.
(とって付けたように、言葉を加える。ちょっとまずい雰囲気を感じる)
I think it is a good thing.

A: Next question is about electronic dictionaries. Do you think it is convenient?
(だった、と思います。Why ...?ではなく、Yes/Noを問われたと思います)

B: Yes, I do. It is handy and compact, we can check words easily, also it is easy to carry with. I put it in my bag now.

A: Is that about this size?(と、手で四角を作ってくれた)

Yes, this size.
(と、まねをして四角を作ってみる)
At the same time, compared with paper dictionaries, we can check words quicker but can't see other words, which is the only weak point.

A: Is it more expensive than normal dictionary?

Yes, it is. The range of the price is about 8 thousand yen to 20 thousand yen.
(あまりにも薄っぺらな説明に自分でも困りはててしまう。再度、Aから電子辞書は便利かと念を押され、引きずられるようにYes, it isと答える)

A: My last question is, what is bunkasai?

Bunkasai is a cultural festival, which is held mostly in junior high schools and high schools, to show what they have done, as you know, they have many clubs. They got ready for it and celebrate their works. Last month, my daughter took part in Bunkasai in her high school. She got up at five and got ready for it before class even after school. I'd like to see doing busy.

A: They celebrate cultural thing
(運動会をの違いをさらにもうちょっと詳しく聞こうとした質問でした)

They make stalls and try to show cultural things like some are Japan traditional things and or about geometry even some IT things are included.
(もうちょっと、ここで話そうかとしている矢先に、向かって左側の人が時計を指して終了を促す。結局、自分としては、最後まで当りがないまま終了してしまった。がっかりといった感じ)

Thank you very much.

(他にも、あせっていたので、しゃべったと思うが思い出せない。とにかく、早口でまくしたてるように言葉を発したのがくやまれる)
