B: Good morning.

Good morning.

B: You can put your bag on the chair and please have a seat.

Thank you.

B: May I ask your name and where you are from?

My name is ...... and I live in ... city, Tokyo.

A: Good morning.

Good morning.

A: Ok, please relax. How long did it take you to come here today?

It took me about one hour by train.

A: Which line did you take?

I took the Chuo line. Express service is available on Sundays, so it took only one hour.

A: Ok, I'll ask you some questions. Please relax. What do you think about teaching English in elementary school?

I think it is very good. I heard that until you get 13 years old, the ability to receive new languages is flexible.(この文は滅茶苦茶)So it is important to learn a new language in elementary school.

A: When did you start learning English?

Around 10 years old. I didn't learn it at elementary school, but one of our neighbors taught us.

A: Did you enjoy it?

Yes. We learned English through games and plays, so we could enjoy using English.
(Aは本題に戻そうと話題を切り替えた)

A: Why Japanese husbands do not praise their wives?

.....praise...?(とても簡単な単語だったのにとっさに何を言われているのか分からず、聞き返してしまった。

A:(もう一度繰り返したが少し違う文で言ってくれた。)

Oh, Ok. Japanese try to be modest in front of other people. There is an expression "gusai" which means "foolish wife." If you praise yourself or about your family, it sounds arrogant.
(Bがくすくす笑うような感じでうなづいてくれていてなごやかな雰囲気)

A: Please describe what bon is.

The bon period is from August 13th to 15th. During the period, we believe that our ancestor's spirit will come back to our home. We hold a bon festival and there we perform bon dancing which is an entertainment for the dead's spirit.

A: What kind of practice do you have at home?

(すぐに思いつかず少し間)
We offer summer vegetables and others to ancestor's photos or graves, and we decorate our house with lanterns.

A: Ok. Thank you.

Thank you....(「もう終わり?」という顔をしていたら)

A: Yes, you're finished. Thank you.

Thank you.
