質疑応答

Hello.(と入室)

Hello.

Please put your bag on the desk.

Thank you.(と言ってカバンを机に置く)

Thank you for coming today.

Thank you.

Please tell us your name.

My name is ........ .

Where do you come from?

I live in........, Tokyo.

Thank you.

I'd like to ask you some questions. What's the difference between udon and soba?

(そばが答えやすかったので)I'd like to explain soba, first. Soba is brown noodle made from buckwheat. You can eat it in hot broth, or cold after dipping it in a special source. Udon is white noodle made from white(wheatと言ったかも知れません)flour and you can also eat it in hot broth, or cold after dipping it in a special source.

Thank you. Then, how was the Heian Period like?

The Heian period was more than 1000 year ago and symbolized by Kyoto. Kyoto was the acient capital and that's why the city has many shrines and temples. I recommend you visit the city.

Thank you. The next question is, what would you do if a foreign tourist you are guiding missed the train that your tour group were supposed to take?

I'd call the police first. Then, I'd talk to the station staff. Also, I'd call my travel agency, if I'd work for a travel agency(oneと言えば済んだ), to do the(myの方がよかった)best to find the foreign tourist.

Thank you. Then, where would you recommend as a sightseeing place?

I'd recommend Matsuhima. Matsushima is one hour away from Sendai and one of the scenic locations in Japan, in addition to Itsukushima jinja(と言ってから言い直して)Miyajima in Hiroshima and Amanohashidate(in Kyotoと出てこなかった). Matsushima has 260 tiny islands covered with pine trees. You can take a mid-sized sightseeing ship going around those tiny island. I'm quite sure you'll enjoy it.

Thank you. It is said that summer in Japan is hot and humid and why do Japanese eat kabayaki in summer?

Kabayaki has stamina(やや怪しい解答)and that's why you eat kabayaki to accumulate stamina inside your body to survive hot and humid summer in Japan.

Okay. Why do you want to become a tour guide?

My mother is an English teacher and she taught me English in my childhood. I wanted to use my English skills in my job. When I was working for a shosha, the Japanese type of trading company, we received a lot of foreign guests, and since I was a junior staff back then, I took them for sightseeing and showed them around Tokyo. I realized that I like that kind of work, I mean, tour guide, and that's why I decided to become a tour guide.

Thank you.

ありがとうございました。では以上です。

(Aに対して)ありがとうございました。(Bに対して)Thank you.(そして荷物を取ると、ドアに向かい、ドアを開け、振り帰り)Thank you.

Thank you.(Aはにっこり微笑む)

受験の感想

ハローの「日本的事象英文説明300選」がとても役立ちました。3度、最初から最後まで読み直しました。300のトピックが直接出題されない場合でも、300の話題にひきつけて答えるようにしました。試験は8分程度だったと思います。日本人の試験官が終始笑顔でいてくださって、ラッキーでした。外国人の試験官の方も穏やかで優しい方でした。

ハローの講師、授業内容、教材、その他(メルマガ、ホームページ)についての感想

<英語第2次試験対策模擬面接クラス>がとても役立ちました。スタッフによる内容、発話に関する指摘は的確でした。回答方法を学ぶことができ、また幅広い事象に対してアンテナを立てるようになりました。
