Hello.

B: Hello. Thank you for coming. Please sit down.

Thank you.

B: Could you tell me your name?

My name is ….

B: Where do you live?

I live in Fuchu city.

B: How long does it take to come here today?

It took about thirty minutes by train.

A: Ok. Let’s start. Recently, I’ve read a newspaper article on high tariffs on foreign rice. What kind of rice do you eat?

(関税、米?ん?どこに焦点をしばればいいのかわからないと思い、ひとまず、政府米について)Before, I used to eat rice sponsored by government.

A: Sponsored? What do you mean?

Government gives subsidy to support agriculture.

A: All right. How about now?

I buy brand-name rice made in Tohoku district.(この質問に関してはかなりちぐはぐな回答になってしまいました。少し焦りましたが気を取り直して….)

A: I like Japanese rice. I’ve tried sukiyaki, tempura and sushi. Now, I want to try something, special. Do you have any recommendation?

Well, how about hitsumabushi. It’s a special eel donburi ,originally made in Nagoya.

A: Eels?(手をニョロニョロ)Wow, I’ve never eaten eels!(興味深そうにして下さる)

Let me explain about kabayaki first. Kabayaki is charcoal-broiled eel basted with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and sake. It is usually served on hot rice. Hitsumabashi is a kind of kabayaki. First, you eat it normally. Then add some seasonings such as green onions. Finally, pour hot green tea over it. It’s really good.(ジェスチャーを間交えて話す)

A: Thank you. I’ll try hitsu…..

Hitsumabushi.(笑顔で)

A: Yes!! (次の質問に迷いBに尋ねる。”How about current topics?”と聞こえたので、靖国?楽天?女性天皇?と頭をよぎるが…)You are a young Japanese. What is popular among them?

(予想していなかったが、なぜか高校生が方言まじりで話すことを新聞で読んだのを思い出して)
Well, le me introduce you a new style of conversation among high school students. Using local direct is popular among them. They use local accents and vocabulary to make their conversation interesting. For example, in Tokyo thank you is “arigato”, but in Osaka it is “okini”.

A: “O-ki-ni”?(とても楽しそうな反応。Bもずっとうなずく)

Yes. High school students use these words in their conversation. It’s very popular now.

A: OK. Thank you for coming today. (big smile、Bも)O-ki-ni.

全体的になごやかな雰囲気でした。文字にしてみると大したことを言えていないのに気付きました、大きな声で元気に話せたと思います。
