Good morning.(大きな声で)

(たぶんA, B, Cの方皆): Good morning.

A: Put your bag on a seat.(と言われてカバンを椅子に置く)

May I sit down?

A: Of course. Please introduce yourself.

My name is ...... I live in ....City, Kanagawa Prefecture. My job is an English teacher at a private high school in Suidobashi ward(Bunkyo wardだった!).

A: Now I ask you some questions. First, why are Japanese reserved?

It depends....(人によって違う、と言いたかったが後が続かず)
It's stereo-type. Some are assertive and others are reserved as you mentioned. For them modesty is a virtue. Assertiveness is disliked by others.

A: How about high school students?

They are selfish. They only insist on their right.
(「義務を果たさない」と言いたかったが出なかった)
They don't clean classrooms. They forget homework.

A: Next question. 
(陸上競技大会でメダルを取った選手達を挙げて)
How do you feel about it?

A: How do they improve their skills?

They trained and instructors teach successfully.

(このように言ったと思う。Bの反応が今一つ)(やや口ごもり)
That's "oironaoshi."

BがCに何か質問がないかと聞き、Cが何か言っている。

A: Why are many Western models used in fashion magazines?

Because Japanese have naturally liking to Westerners. Japanese think Westerners are ideal. Especially young people think so. The clothes are....
(服が西洋人向きに作られていると言ったが何を言ったか忘れました)

(全体として沈黙が続くのは避けられ即答しましたが、はっきり言って不安だらけです。皆さんが話している通り時間はあっという間に過ぎました。
