An Interview With...

1st Year Students

今年入学したばかりのFreshmen、2人の1年生にGeorgeがインタビュー!

インタビュアー  George Wallace 先生




Interview with two first-year students, Ryo Nomura and Ikumi Kurosu

G: Hello. Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed.

Ryo(R): No problem!

Ikumi(I): You’re welcome!

G: So, let’s begin. Your first question is this . . .

R: Oh dear! It’s going to be really hard, isn’t it?

G: No. Not really. The question is: what is your favourite colour?

I: (laughing) Blue!

G: Why do you like blue?

I: It makes me feel relaxed.

R: I thought Ikumi was going to say purple.

G: Why is that?

R: Well, they say that purple is the colour of frustration!

G: Really? I didn’t know that.

I: (frowning) Please ignore him. He’s crazy.

R: What about you, George? What is your favourite colour?

G: I like yellow a lot. It’s the colour of sunshine. But I also like purple, too. Next question: what is your favourite word or phrase?

R: Love.

I: Respect.

G: I agree with you. Both those words are really important in life, aren’t they? Next question: what surprised you when you first came to Daito?

R: There are a lot of teachers who come from English-speaking countries. And they are so different from the teachers I had at high school.

G: In what way are they different?

R: There is such a variety of people! They come from many different countries, not just the USA, but also Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand . . .

I: And some of them are strict, while others are really easy-going.

G: Anything else that surprised you?

I: The campus here at Higashi Matsuyama is so green. It is surrounded by nature on all sides.

R: The campus is so big!

G: Really? It’s not that big, surely? Perhaps I am just used to more space in England.

R: Maybe . . .

G: What do you like about the campus in particular?

I: The pork cutlet curry in the canteen!

G: Does it taste so good?

I: It tastes pretty good, but the best thing about it is the amount of food you get. It’s really cheap, too.

G: I’ll have to try it next time I am here. Usually I eat in the Seikyo buffet.

R: That’s where all the foreign students go to eat.

I: Yes, and all the female students . . .

G: So why don’t you go there?

I: I’m shy!

R: And he’s greedy! The girls all want fancy food, but we boys just want volume!

G: I see. Okay, another question: what books have you read recently?

R: Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.

I: That doesn’t count! We read that in class with George!

G: What about you, Ikumi?

I: I read a biography about James Brown, the soul singer.

G: Hey, that sounds interesting. Why did you choose to read about him?

I: I like dancing and he was one of the world’s best dancers. I really respect him.

G: His song It’s A Man’s World (But It’d Be Nothing Without A Woman) is one of my favourite songs.

I: Wow! Really?

R: Can you sing it for us, George? I don’t think I know that one . . .

G: (laughing) Maybe next time!

R: Are you shy, too?

G: Of course! And finally . . . my last question for you today. Have you ever visited a foreign country? And if so, which one?

I: I went to the USA once, a few years ago.

G: Did you like it?

I: Yes, it was good. What I remember the most is that wherever I went, people would talk to me. Total strangers! Americans are so friendly.

G: Thanks for coming today. We had better stop now. The next class will be beginning soon!

R: Is this really going to go on the website?

G: Of course!

R: へえ!
