B: Please sit down.
B: Please tell me your name.
My name is ....
B: Where do you live?
I live in ... Tokyo.
A: Have you lived there long?

A: Now, I'm going to ask you several questions about the current affairs related to Japan.
A: Why do Japanese people live long?
I think that Japanese people can take good nutrition as Japan becomes an affluent society. Compared to the pre-war days, Japanese people obviously take better meals. It is the biggest reason why Japanese people live long.
A: How about scientific development?
Yes, thanks to the development of medication, Japanese people can live long.It is one of the biggest reasons as well.
A: What do you think about the recent athletic meet in Paris? Some Japanese athletes performed well.
I'm very proud of Mr. Suetsugu. He got the 3rd position in the 200 meter dash.
The other day, I discussed the event with some American. According to them, theAfrican
Americans are stronger than any other peoples physically because historically
speaking they were sent to the United States from Africa by boat in a harsh condition
and only strong people survived. This idea is accepted by the professors at Harvard
University and other prestigious universities biologically speaking. However,
it is not socially accepted yet. It is a touchy issue!
A: O.K. What is setsubun?
B: Sorry. The question is setsubun.
Oh, sorry. I made a mistake.
Setsubun is a special day when people throw beans to expel demons and let good things in.
A: O.K. Times up. We enjoyed conversation with you. Thank you for coming today.
Thank you. You're welcome.
