Good morning.(得意の大きな声でちょっと語尾を上げて元気よく言った)

B,A,C 全員でGood morning.

B:Please put your bag on the desk.(後ろの机を見ながら)

Thank you.

B: Please be seated.(微笑みながら)
A:Thank you.

B: May I have your name, please?
My name is xxxx. (とりあえずまたまた大きな声で言う)

B:その声に驚きながら、Where do you live?
I live in Nishiku, Fukuoka city.

B: How did you come here?
I came here by subway. It took 20 minutes.

B: Oh, very close!

A:I am a tourist.(微笑みながら)Tell me about the Japanese seasons.

Oh, seasons... Japan has four seasons. Summer, it is humid and hot. Winter, it is chilly like today's weather. In spring and autumn, the weather is mild. Since we have four distinctive seasons, we can enjoy delicious seasonal food in Japan. (と何故か食べ物の話をして、梅雨や台風についても言えば良かったと後悔)

A: You said about food. What kind of food can I eat (in Fukuoka)?()は言ったか言わなかったか忘れました

Oh,food! (いつもこの手で時間稼ぎ)
Japan has many kinds of delicious food. Especially in Fukuoka, you can eat fresh seafood such as squid, yellow tail, and sole(ここで私の発音が悪いのか変な顔をしたので、)or flatfish.と続けた。すると食べたそうな顔しながら、

A:I want to eat seasonal food. What kind of seasonal food would you recommend?

何故か思いつかないので、沈黙は敵と言われたので、何か言いながら考えようとして いたら、だんだん試験官の顔が下を向きそうになるので、持ち直そうとして、何故か

I would recommend Danago!と言ってしまった。え〜〜それseasonal food?って思ったのだが、前日まで月見の暗記をしていたら、つい口から出てしまった。

A:Oh, Dango!と何故か興奮気味
Yes. Dango is a kind of dumpling cake made of rice or wheat flour. In autumn, we enjoy viewing the moon and offer dumplings to the moon.

A:OK. Next question. Who do you think is the important person in Japanese history.

Oh, I am good at history. (試験官Bがまたこいつリアクションが激しいよ〜という顔で笑っていた)
I think Toyotomi Hideyoshi is one of the important persons in Japanese history. Hideyoshi was promoted to the top position of samurai warriors and dominated the whole country. He was born to a poor farm family. So, many Japanese, especially people living in the Kinki district respect him because he jumped to the top in spite of his disadvantaged background.

A:Where should I go to study Hideyoshi?

Osaka castle!
Osaka castle is used as a museum. So if you go there, you can learn about the culture and lifestyles of that time and you can see warrior’s clothes.

全員 納得〜という感じで微笑んでいる。
A: Can I see kimono there?

No.(いやまてよ〜着物もあったなぁ〜と思い出して)
Oh, yes. You can see not only kimonos, but also Hakama and Haori. Haori is a mid-length coat worn over a kimono. Hakama is pleated baggy trousers.

A:What kind of occasions do Japanese wear a kimono?
People wear a kimono on Coming-of- Coming-of Coming-of-Age ここでめちゃくちゃ噛んでしまったが、試験官全員が笑っていたので、私もついでに笑う
Day, during New Year holidays, and in wedding ceremonies and receptions.

なんだか全員の反応がここは良かった。

C:最後にどんなガイドになりたいか述べて下さい。

え?日本語でよろしいのでしょうか?
C:どちらでも、、、、

To be honest, my mother used to be a tour guide. (え!ほんとに!という顔をBがしていた)So, to be a tour guide has been my dream. I love Japan very much.(AとCがうんうんと微笑む)
As you know, Japan has a lot of beautiful sceneries and various kinds of food. So, I want to introduce Japan and things Japanese to foreign tourist and give them a good impression of Japan. I hope that I will entertain them and to see their happy faces as a tour guide.

と締めくくった。

BAC:Thank you. と全員に言われて、

I really enjoyed conversation with you.
と言うと、全員にっこりした。

Thank you.
と言ってカバンを取ってお辞儀をして部屋の外に出る。
お辞儀をするときにもhave a good dayとか言おうと思ったら、
皆書類に必死になって書き込んでいたので辞めときました。

以上
全体的にアイコントと笑顔と声の大きさに気をつけたが、
だんごと季節のところが駄目だぁ〜と思っています。
また、来年頑張りたいと思います。
