Listen up.

Practical challenge 8:00-

Onishi: (略)いいですか、問題が出てきたらすぐに “Well” とかですねぇ ”I think“ とかですねぇ、とにかく何かを言ってしまうこと。(略)

Roza: Actually, that was some really good advice. It’s good to always be ready with those easy start phrases.

So, yeah, do your best everyone.

Chris: Yeah, I agree, wonderful advice.

And perhaps you can try to have a lot of fun when you practice. You could for example, change voices.

You know, Roza is female voice, mine is masculine voice, try both of them.

female: 女性の

masculine: 男性の

おわりに 13:20-

Chris: So, Roza, you know, we give presentations quite often with our job.

But how about you?

Roza: Well, once I gave a presentation in front of university students in Hong Kong.

Chris: Hum, Hong Kong, wow. And then, what was your topic?

Roza: Well, the topic was “Being an actor in Japan”.

The main point was to understand the culture that you are acting in, and to respect it as I’m sure all of our listeners can feel the respect that we have for each other here every time.

Chris: Ha ha~, maybe.

Onishi: Maybe, right.

actor: 俳優(女性も含む)

respect: 敬意を表す
