A:B: Good morning.

Good morning.

C: 荷物をそこに置いてください。(日本語? 覚えていない。)

Thank you.

A: Please sit down.

Thank you.

B: Please tell us your name and address.

My name is …. I live in …city, …prefecture.

A: I'll ask you some questions. Why are many Japanese people interested in English language?

English language?
(「英会話学校」で想定していたので、つい、くり返す。)
This is because English is regarded as an international language. If Japanese people want to learn English conversation, they usually go to English conversation school. Because we don't have a lot of chance to learn English conversation during our school days. (とか age とか言って間違っている、と、焦る。)
That's why many people are interested in English language.

A: OK. These days, international marriage is increasing. Why do you think?
(何故だと思うか、と、聞かれたと思う)

I think today we can easily travel to foreign countries and we have many opportunities to meet foreign people. As for Japanese women, foreign male are attractive (ここで、試験官C 机につっぷす。日本人の男でごめんなさい、という感じで。) because they tend to be kind and friendly, (日本の男性も褒めなくては、と思い焦る。) and for foreign women, (もたつく) Japanese men seem to be mentally strong and (もたつく) have energy to focus. (試験官B 納得がいかない様子で、下を向いている。) So, international marriage is increasing.

A: What do you think about young people's use of sell phone?

I think this is difficult problem. Cell phone is a very good device because it is convenient. We don't have to find a public phone nor worry about coins to make a call, (若者と関係ないのに、言ってしまう。) and parents can get them easily, so if something happens, like an unexpected earthquake, it is (言いなおす) it might be helpful to have contact with them. But they can spend a lot of time on their cell phones. They can send e-mail and download various things from the internet, and there are many crimes regarding cell phone. So... there are both bad and good points included in cell phones.

(まあまあ納得、という雰囲気。)

A: What do you think about the dispatch of???(SDFとは言わなかったと思う。)to Iraq?

I agree with this. ……Japan has the problem on constitution, article 20, no, article 9, which restricts the power of ……(言葉が出てこない) Self Defense Forces. But today, doing something for other countries are necessary as a member of international society (この辺りはよく覚えていない) and it's important to do something not only giving money but also sending Self Defense Force. So I think it's good to dispatch Self Defense Force to Iraq.

A: Tell me what is Hachimaki?

Hachimaki is a cloth headband, about … this length, (と、両手で長さを示す。)and we tie it around the head (と、両手で締める真似をする。) to show high spirit. It is used at school ……(言葉が出てこない)sports day.

A: OK. That's all. Thank you.

You're welcome. Thank you.
