Hello

A.B.C.: Good afternoon

Good afternoon

B: Please take a seat.

Thank you

B: (座りかけている私に向って微笑みながら)

Did you sleep well, last night?

(私は笑いながら)

Not really.

B: First, could you tell us your name and where you are from?

My name is ... I live in Kachidoki, Chuo Ward, Tokyo.

A: I will ask you some simple questions.

Yes, please.

A: Why do Japanese prefer to have new cars instead of used ones?

(すぐに答えが浮かばず)

Let me think.

A: Yes.

I don’t drive, so I am not really sure. But according to my husband, a car that someone else has used before has ...

(どんな英語を使ったかは覚えていないが、前に乗っていた人の癖が付いている、というようなことを云ったつもり。でも、相手には上手く伝わらなかったと思う。)

A: What mode of transport do you use when you go out?

I use a train.

A: What do you think about young people’s diet these days?

They eat a lot of fast food such as McDonald's. I don’t think that is really healthy.

A: What do Japanese people eat traditionally?

They eat a lot of seafood and a lot of vegetables. That is the one of the reasons why the Japanese life expectancy is so long.

A: What do you like eating?

I like fish very much. Because I live very close to the Tukiji Fish Market,
I can get very fresh fish there.

(一同笑ってくれたので私の気持ちも和んだ)

A: What is “undoukai”?

”Undoukai” is sports day. In elementary school, junior high school and high school, they have a sports day once a year, usually in autumn.
The students’ families also attend sports day in elementary school, so the whole family can enjoy the events.

A: What a kind of games do they play?

They are mainly field games such as ….

(玉ころがしの説明をしようと悪戦苦闘)

And they do track events as well.

A: What event did you like?

I ran fast when I was a child, so I liked the track event.

A: Do you do any sport?

I don’t do much exercise now, but I like walking although I don’t know if I can say that’s a sport.

A: I guess that’s a sport. When people walk, where do they go?

If they live in the city, walking around their neighborhood is interesting. And if they go to the western part of Tokyo, there are mountains such as‘Takao-zan’. They can have a nice hike there.

A: Thank you.

(今の答えに対してThank you と言われたのかと思って、次の言葉を 待っていたら、もう一度)

Thank you.

(席を立って、もう一度)

Thank you very much.

全体として和やかな雰囲気で、試験官との会話は楽しく進みましたが、ハローの模擬面接クラスで練習したような「結論」「理由」「対策あるいは解決策」のような論理の展開が少しも出来なかったことが悔やまれます
