My name is ○○○○.

A: What do you think about consumption tax?

(よく聞き取れなかったので)

I beg your pardon?

(試験官A、質問を繰り返してくれる)

The current consumption tax rate is 5%. Personally, I don't like the tax rate to be raised. However, I think it must be increased, because labour power is decreasing …

(少しつまり)

Let's see, the birth rate is declining. Therefore, I think the tax rate must be raised to keep the pension system.

A: Why do a lot of young Japanese people go abroad?

Many young Japanese people are interested in new things, not only Japanese things but also foreign things. So they go abroad.

(もっとはっきりした動機を言うべきだったと思う)

A: Why do Japanese people work overtime?

Many Japanese people work hard. So do I. When I was young, Japan was not a rich country. So Japanese had to work hard. I think the custom is still alive.

(と言いかけたら、Aがこれですか?と自分のヘアピンを指さして聞く)

Yes, that's right.

(もっと、詳しく言いたかったが、言葉が出てこなかった)

A: What is “gagaku”?

"Gagaku"?

(と、念のためにくり返すと、そうだ、とうなずく)

"Gagaku" is traditional Japanese music and is still played at the Imperial Palace. To be frank, I am not so sure about "gagaku," but I think I have to know more about Japanese culture including "gagaku."

A: That's all. Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

C: お疲れ様でした
