C : Please take your seat. First I’m going to ask you some simple
questions. After that the lady will ask you more difficult questions.
First, what is your name?

My name is ….

C : Where do you live?

I live in Kamakura City.

C : How long did it take you to get here?

It took me about 1hour and 30 minutes, door to door.

C : OK. Now she will ask you some questions.
A : OK. First of all, why is Korean culture so popular recently?

Japan and Korea are neighboring countries. We can easily visit Korea
and Korean people can easily come to Japan. Japanese people love
Korean food. Korean movies and TV dramas are on the air. Bae Yong
Jun, who played the main role in the best hit drama “Winter sonata”
recently came to Japan. It made Korean culture popular.

(全く話がまとまらずしどろもどろになっているうちに次の質問が振られた。)

C : Why do you think Korean culture has become so popular recently?

Because we haven’t had the chance to watch Korean movies and TV dramas.

A : What do you think about the idea of an empress becoming the head of
the Imperial Family?

Japanese people are very open-minded about the Imperial Family. Under
the current legislation, female doesn’t have the right to accede to the
throne. The Japanese government is now trying to change the law in
order to enable Princess Aiko to succeed to the throne.

C : Don’t you think Japanese people will oppose such an idea?

Japanese people are not chauvinistic, and are open-minded about the
Imperial Family. I don’t think people care much about an empress
becoming the head of the Imperial Family.

A : Would you please explain the Japanese tea ceremony?

Tea is made by adding hot water to powdered tea called macha and
whisking it. We practice the tea ceremony not only to enjoy the taste
of tea or the atmosphere of a tea house, but also to cultivate serenity
and discipline.

C : Is the tea ceremony still popular in Japan?

Yes, it is still popular.

A : OK. That’s all. Thank you for coming.
Thank you very much.

(もう少し話を膨らませるべきだったと後悔。)

★ 即興で答えをまとめようとした為、文法、語法も滅茶苦茶になりがちだったが、とにかく冷静に「はっきりと」、「大きな声で」答えるように心掛けた。
★ 面接官の応対は非常に丁寧で且つ場を和ませるような配慮が感じられた。
★ ネイティブの(A)試験官はA4用紙にリストアップされている質問からその場で3つ選んだ様子。
