A,B,C : Good afternoon.
B : Please sit down.
May I put my bag here?
B : Sure. Please tell us your name.
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.
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?
Only for one year. Before that, I worked for a company.
B : So you quit the company?
Yes, I quit.
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?
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.
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?
A : Thank you for coming today.
Thank you very much.
