Good afternoon.

A,B,C : Good afternoon.

B : Please sit down.

May I put my bag here?

(横の椅子を指差して。)

My name is ....

B : Where do you live?

I live in Yokosuka City in Kanagawa Prefecture.

B : Did you drive here today?

No, I came here by train.

A : Why do you think many parents want to send their children to juku these days?

Actually, I'm working as a juku teacher.

(皆笑う。)

A : What subject do you teach?

I teach English, Japanese and social studies.

A : Which subject do you like best?

I like English best.

B : How long have you been teaching?

Yes, I quit.

(試験官B は驚いた様子。)

Well, going through entrance examinations to universities or high schools in Japan is very competitive. If they don't study hard, they won't be able to enter a prestigious university or high school. Also, parents want their children to get a good job after graduation. I think that's why many parents want to send their children to juku these days.

A : These days, many people use cellphones with cameras. What do you think about this?

(予期していなかった質問だったので、相当間を空けてしまった。)

I think they have both good an bad aspects. I think they are good because we can take picture easily. However, some people use them to steal things.

(「盗撮」にあたる英語が出てこなくて"steal"という言葉だけで表現しようとしてしまった。)

A : Please tell us about "kaiten-zushi".

Kaiten-zushi literally means circulating sushi. Plates of sushi are set on a conveyor belt encircling the serving bar, and as the plates pass by, the customers select what they want. Prices for "kaiten-zushi" are generally lower than at regular sushi restaurants.

B : How do you pay at a "kaiten-zushi" restaurant?

We pay according to the number of plates we ate.

B : Do you eat a plate?

(日本語では「食べた皿の枚数で」というのでそのまま英語にしたらこう言われてしまった。)

A : Thank you for coming today.

Thank you very much.

(間をもたせられるような表現力を高めて、発表能力を磨きたいと感じた。)
