Is it really finished? (最後に日本語でガイドになりたい動機を聞かれると思っていたのでホントにこれで終わりか不安になりもう一度確認しました)
Really finished?? Can I leave?
B: Yes, all tests were finished.? You can leave.
これで終わってしまいました。ちょっとテストという感じよりは、いろいろおしゃべりをしたという感じでそれはそれで楽しかったのですが、テストとしてどうだったか、不安が残ります。ガイドとしての適正をこの会話から判断されたのだとしたら、富士山に対してもっと興味を持たせるように言うべきであったし、歴史の質問にも答えに日本史の知識を混ぜなければならなかったと思います。あまりに早いペースで質問が次々と来るので向こうの質問にただ答えているだけだった点は反省しています。3人一組のトップバッターだったので後から声が教室の外にしっかり漏れて廊下で聞こえていたことを知り、不運だと思いました。2番目3番目の人は明らかにどんな質問か、試験管の英語はどんなタイプかしることが出来たわけで、この点は、後ろの順番の方が有利でした。途中、廊下で待っている受験生を見回りに来た係員の責任者らしき人もこの点は、はっきり認め、受験生に謝っていました。
いろいろ良い経験でした。いろいろご指導有難うございました。
