B:Hello.(受験生の椅子のそばにある机を指して）Please put your bag and coat,please.
B:How are you?
I'm fine,thank you.(笑顔で答える）
A: OK. I'll ask you some questions. First, please tell us your name and where you come from.
I'm XXX and I'm from YYY City, YYY Prefecture.
B: Oh. (Aと顔を見合わせて)Today, we interviewed two persons from YYY.
A: How long does it take to come to Tokyo from YYY?
About two hours. I came to Tokyo by Shinkansen, or bullet train, yesterday. And I stayed at a hotel in Tokyo last night.
A・B: Oh, really.
A. So, I'm a foreign tourist. In Buddhism, there are some types of statues. Would you tell me about that?
Yes. In Japan, there are some great images of Buddha. Some are very big, and some are small. Normally, they have only two arms, but some statues have eight or more arms from one body. And, generally statue sits on a lotus leaf, and cross their hands on their legs. (と言いながら両手を組んでおなかのあたりで組むジェスチャー)And they usually smile, or close their eyes.
A: All right. So what about the statue who is wearing ○○○?
Yes,there are various branches in Buddhism and there are various types of statues・・・
A:No.I mean,the thing like a baby ○○○.
Sorry, I'm not so versed in such category, so I'll look up in the book and I'll study.
A: Next question. What should I do if we have a big earthquake?
First, you should hide under a table to avoid a crash of a falling shelf and light. And then turn on the radio if it is possible, and get some information.
A: How about if I am in a building?
Then if you are in an elevator, please put all of the buttons of the floors inside the elevator and get out of the elevator as soon as possible. And get out of the building. Outside is safer.
A: All right. Next question. I want to buy electronic appliances. Where do you recommend me to buy them?
I recommend Akihabara. There are many, many stores of electronic appliances in Akihabara, and the prices are very cheap around the year. To get there, you take Chuo line from Shinjuku for about 30 minutes. The prices are less than half of the prices at the stores at other regions. So I strongly recommend that you go to Akihabara.
A: OK, thank you. (Bと顔を見合わせて)That's all. Thank you.
B: Thank you.
Thank you very much. I really enjoyed the conversation with you. (といって笑顔）Good bye.
