冒頭のやりとり 0:10-

Rosa: Hey everyone. This is Rosa Akino. I’m so excited for today’s review.

Actually, the practical challenge should be so fun.

Chris: Really, Rosa?

Rosa: Yeah.

Chris: Ah, Chris McVay here. I’d better start sharing this excitement. (shouting…)

今日のPractical Challengeは、ネコの話題なので、”should be so fun”なのでしょう。

Rosa: OK, here we go. Question. What will Aoi probably do at the end of this conversation?

  1. Shall have lunch alone.
  2. Shall go to the park.
  3. Shall have lunch with Yuichi’s group.

Here we go!

Tuesday 2:45-

Chiris: What is the man’s opinion about red wine?

  1. The older the better.
  2. The cheaper the better.
  3. The younger the better.

Listen carefully!

Wednesday 4:20-

Now concentrate!

Practical Challengeの前 8:10-

Rosa: So, guys. As we’ve mentioned before, don’t focus too much on the Japanese translation to English.

Just think about the situation and the feeling of what you are trying to say. And enjoy!

Chris: Exactly. In other words, don’t analyze too much.

Just let the English flow from your mouth, OK?

  • 日本語→英語への訳にフォーカスしすぎない
  • シチュエーションを考えて、何を言おうとしているかを感じ取る
  • 分析しようとしすぎない

そして、英語が口から出るようにする!

おわりに 13:40-

Rosa: So, guys. Speaking of cats, I’m sure you know how much I love cats, right?

Chris: Yes, we know.

Onishi: You always talk about your cats.

Chris: Nonstop.

Rosa: Well, actually I have a story.

So, long time ago, I was on a shoot, way in the countryside of Kawaguchi-ko.

And I saw this beautiful cat with sky blue eyes. And he was so sweet, and he came up to me and just sat on my lap and was just such a sweetheart.

But he was an abandoned cat. I wanted to take him home but we were on a ロケバス, so I had to leave him there.

I still can’t forget about him.

Chris: This is such a sad story.

Rosa: I know.

Onishi: Oh yeah, right.

shoot: 撮影

金曜の最後のところは、いつも長めのがくる!
