受験者( 24 ):女性
 
Please tell your name and where you live.
My name is .... I live in .....
Now, Mr. B is going to ask you some questions.
Yes.
B:When is typhoon season in Japan?
Typhoons hit Japan from mid summer through autumn.(Augustだっけ?)
B:What would you do if a great earthquake happens?
I would try to find a place where I can hide myself from the shelf. It is dangerous if the shelf falls down on you. Then I turn off the gas in case of fire. (どこかに避難するというべきだったのかしら?)
B:Why is it dry in Tokyo in Japan?
(えっわからない!でも沈黙はだめだから。。。)Kamakura, where I live, is hot and humid in summer, compared to winter. (関係ないし。。!)Maybe Tokyo is a bit far from the ocean... I mean because of geographical reason...
A:Kamakura is included. He means Kanto area. Yes, it's geographical reason. KARAKAZE...(助け舟でした。涙)
Oh, yes, it's because of the wind. (あっさり一言で終わりました)
B:Are there female rulers in Japan?
You mean empress?(前の方のがちらっと聞こえてました。でも後で考えると首相のこと?)
B:Yes, have there been empresses in Japan?
In ancient time, yes. But now, according to the Imperial law or rule, only men are allowed to suceed the Imperial family. But now this issue is controversial.
B:What is enka?(これも聞こえてました)
Enka is a type of music characterised by a sentimental ballad of love, sorrow, part and home. Like country music in the United States, it has a distinctive melodic and singing style. It is especially popular among elderly people, but now some young people like it, too. As for me, I don't know much about enka.(暗記文だけだと味気ないと思って最後余計なことを言ってしまったかも。)
A:What is the most important thing if you become a tour guide?
I should be kind, tolerant, (have hospitalityと言ったかしら?)and try to help foreign tourists understand about Japanese culture and history in an impressive way and help them enjoy their stay in Japan.
(名詞を羅列した方が良かったかなと思いました)
ネイティブさんは終始冷静でしたが、日本人の方が明るく、救われました。反省することは沢山ありますが、とにかく終わってほっとしました。
