受験者( 30 ):女性
 
Good afternoon.(ちょっと大きめの声で言った)
A:Good afternoon.
B:Good afternoon.(A, B同時に言った。)
A:Please be seated.
Thank you.
B:May I have your name and Where do you live?
My name is .... I live in ...., Tokyo.
A:If I'm a tourist and you are a tour guide, where do you take me in Tokyo?
I'd like take you to Asakusa Buddhist Temple, because in Asakusa you can enjoy both seeing the Buddhist temple and shopping. There are many souvenir shops around the temple. You can enjoy seeing and buying traditional Japanese things. Things in the shops are mostly not expensive.
A:Thank you.(少しうなずいて微笑んだ。)Next question. What is the temperature in Okinawa and Hokkaido in winter?
(ハローの模擬試験で習ったことを思い出した)Japan is a long island. The temperature differs according to the area.
Hokkaido is located in northern part of Japan. It is close to Russia, while Okinawa is located in the southern part of Japan which is close to Taiwan or Chinese Taiwan. The temperature in Okinawa in winter is about 20degrees, while Hokkaido is about minus 10 degrees, 15 degrees or minus 20 degrees. It is very cold and it has snow.(Aがちょっと首を少しかしげたので続けて言った)It has heavy snow.
A:Next question. What is the difference between Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples?
The big difference is that at Shinto shrines there is a big Torii gate at the entrance, while Buddhist temples have no Torii gate. At the Shinto shrine you clap you hands twice. (実際に手を小さな音で二度たたいてみたら少し驚いた様子だった)That means there are many deities in the Shintoism. They are talking about many subjects. Clap our hands means "please pay attention to me" At the Buddhist temple you don't clap your hands but just bow your head.(実際におじぎをしてみせた)
A:O.K. next. I'll ask about Japanese history. After Meiji Ishin what Japan has become?
Before the Meiji Restoration、Japan was closed her door to foreign countries. That period was called Edo period.
When Japan opened the door to foreign countries, we felt we were far behind other countries, and then we tried to do our best to catch up with them. Since then, many foreign things were introduced to Japan.(ここでAもBもうなづいてニコッとちょっとほほえんだ)But we experienced several wars, such as Russian war,(と言い始めたらあまりいい顔をしなかったが続けて)and recent biggest war, World War II.
We lost the war. Since then, again we tried to do our best to be best in the world in many fields.
A:Do you go to the Shinto shrines on New Year's day?
Yes, we go to the Shinto shrines on New Year's day.
We also visit Buddhist temples on New Year's Eve. Then, we hear 108 bells of the temples. These 108 bells of the Buddhist temples mean Buddhist.... (と言ってちょっと詰まってしまった。もう一度ちゃんと言い直そうと)The 108 bells of the Buddhist.(除夜の鐘を説明したかったがうまく出てこなかった。これでやめた)(AはBにまだ質問することは残っているのか”More questions are left?”と聞いて質問の紙に目をむけた)
A:When was Tokyo Olympic Game was held?
(ちょっと考えている仕草をしたら不安そうな顔をした)It was held in 1964. Many Japanese athletes were participated to the games. We won many Gold medals. (ここでお二人はうん、とうなずいてニコッとした) But now again, we are trying to have another Olympic games in Japan.(お二人はうなずいてニコッとした)
A:That's good enough. Thank you.
Thank you very much. Have a good time.(お二人とも黙っている)Have a good day!(と言ったらちょっと微笑んでくれた。コートをもってお辞儀をしながら部屋の外に出る)
<感 想:全体的にアイコンタクトと笑顔と話す内容と長さに気を使ったが予想以上に質問の数が多かったので少し驚いた。歴史の質問のところでちょっと長く話しすぎたかもしれないと後で思った。>
