Good morning.
A,C:Good morning.
C:You can put your bags there. (後ろの机をさして)

Thank you.
C:Please have a seat. (微笑みながら)
Thank you.
C:Could you tell us your name and your address?
My name is .............. and I am from ...............
A:Why does Japan have so many hot springs?
(少しの間、暑い春?と思い答え始めたが気づいて)
Oh,I took “spring” for a season.
Hot springs are made by volcanos. And Japan has a lot of volcanos. That's why.
A:Which is the best hot spring?
It is difficult to decide, but I recommend Kusatsu. It is not far from here.
A:How can I get there?
You can get there by train from Tokyo station, and it takes about one hour or one and half hours.(本当にどれぐらいかかるか分からなかったので)
A:Could you tell us a little more about Onsen?
If you have not visited any Onsen before, you need to know you have to take off your clothes before entering Onsen. And Onsen has one or some big ???(湯船が出てこず)like pond with hot water and you need to wash your body before entering the hot water.
(体を洗わずに入るとお湯が汚れるという事をいいたかったが、言葉がすぐ出てこず)
Otherwise, the hot water will become dirty.
A:I want to go to Osaka. How can I get there?
You can go to Osaka by Shinkansen. It will take about ???(数字がすぐに出てこず)less than 3 hours from Tokyo station. If you live close to the airport, flying is the fastest. But it is expensive. If you would like to go in the cheapest way, the bus takes you there most cheaply.
A:How long does it take?
I'm not sure, but I think it takes about 5 or 6 hours.
A:I think time is up?
C:(時計を見て)It is OK, one more question.
A:(英語は忘れましたが)関西ではどこに行くのがいいか?

I recommend Kyoto. Kyoto has a lot of historic sites and relics. If you would like to try typical Kansai food, I recommend Osaka, where you can try Takoyaki.
(お好み焼、も頭に浮かぶがこの後聞かれると英語で説明できないと思い、たこ焼きだけに)
A:What is Takoyaki?
Takoyaki is a tiny food, about this size(手で示しながら), and there is octopus inside. You need not to go into a restaurant; you can get some on the streets.
(一種のファーストフードといいたかったが出てこず)
C:OK.Thank you very much.(これで終わりです、と英語で)
(えっ、最後に日本語は?と思ったが今回はそうなのかと思った)
Thank you very much.
<感想:試験前から準備不足の感もあり、アイコンタクトと笑顔で雰囲気だけはよくしようと思い、それについては出来たと思います。しかし、肝心の内容はやはり準備不足もあり、もう少しうまく説明したかったなあ、という感が残りました>
