A: I’ll ask you some questions.

Yes.

A: What is “tsukimi”?

“Tsukimi” is “Moon viewing”.

This is done in autumn on the night of the full moon. Offering of pampas glass and rice dumplings are made to the moon. They are placed on a stand set up on a veranda.

B:What do you think of Western events in Japan?

B: Do you like “wagashi”?

Yes, I like it very much.

B: Why do Japanese people study English so hard?

Because English is the international language. English is becoming more and more international nowadays.

B: Although Japanese study English very hard, they are poor at speaking English. Why?

A lot of importance is placed on reading and writing in English, not on listening and speaking.

B: What do you think about the widespread use sof mobile phones?

I think it’s good. If we have mobile phones, we can talk almost anywhere. And there are few phone
booths around train stations because more and more people are using mobile phones. It is a must for us today.

B: Thank you. Perfect. Good Job.

Thank you very much.
