A,B,C : Good morning.
A,B : Please have a seat. Either one you like.
B : Please tell us your name.
My name is 〜.
B : Will you speak up? I can't catch your words.
B : Where do you live?
I live in Kitamoto City in Saitama.
B : Yoshimoto City? Where is it? I've never heard the name.
No, I live in Kitamoto City. It took me one hour and a half to come here.
A : Now, I'll ask some questions about Japanese culture or society. I'm wondering why in Japan they use foreign models in fashion magazines. Japanese people are so attractive. Why are there so many Western models in fashion magazines?
There are some reasons. For one thing Japanese people are always fond of Western models. They are tall, they have good figures... and another one is that most of the designers are from Western countries, so it suits well for Western models.
A : Next question is about temporary workers. I heard more and more Japanese are working as a temporary worker. Are they recent things?
Yes, they are recent things. In this long reccesion, it's difficult for new employees to find a good job. They have to work temporarily. I think they are trying to get a better job....and...
I think some of them are reluctant to work as a temporary worker. But I read an article that said some people are willing to work as a temporary worker.
A : OK．Tell me what Ema is.
Ema? Ah, it's a wooden board. You can buy it at shrines. Usually, there is a picture of a horse on each side of the board.
We write our wishes on it.
A : So, you buy it at shrines.
Yes, it costs 500-700 yen. People buy it to pass the examinatons or....
I feel more confident when I write my wishes on Ema.
A : It's cheap and seems to be effective. Thank you. It's time up.
Thank you very much.
