Test 5

Which food would you recommend to a visitor to your country?

I definitely recommend TOFU or bean curd to my friends from abroad.
I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, TOFU is a healthy food. As Tofu is made from soybeans, it is a low calorie and high protein diet, containing no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Secondly, there are many kinds of TOFU dishes. In summer, chilled TOFU is very popular among Japanese people. (A glass of beer with chilled TOFU is the best combination.) In winter, TOFU in hot water is my favorite.

For these reasons, I highly recommend TOFU.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Which do you prefer, playing sports for enjoyment or competition?

I prefer to play sports for enjoyment (rather than for competition).
I will present two reasons to corroborate my contention.

First, I do not like too much emphasis on winning
I used to play volleyball in high school. Our coach was a very severe person and he always pushed us to win. When we lost a game, he scolded us and slapped our faces. I never liked his attitude.

Secondly, I need time to relax. As I have enough competition in my work place, I do not need another competition when I play sports. I play sports to relieve stresses.

For these reasons, I prefer to play sports for enjoyment (rather than for competition).
---------------------------------------------------------------
What is a food that many visitors to your country enjoy having?

If you are a beef connoisseur, I strongly recommend a Kobe beef stake.

The meat is so tender that it will melt on your tongue.
Each cow drinks Japanese beer and receives a massage treatment everyday while listening to a relaxing music. These special cares contribute to the tenderness unmatched by any other beef in the globe.
Although the price is a little intimidating, it is well worth every penny spent.
For this reason, I strongly recommend Kobe beef stake.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Which ethnic food do you enjoy eating?

I enjoy eating Japanese TOFU or bean curd.
I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, TOFU is a healthy food. As Tofu is made from soybeans, it is a low calorie and high protein diet, containing no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Secondly, there are many kinds of TOFU dishes. In summer, chilled TOFU is very popular among Japanese people. (A glass of beer with chilled TOFU is the best combination.) In winter, TOFU in hot water is my favorite.

For these reasons, I enjoy eating Japanese TOFU.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is more important for an athlete, physical ability or effort?

I am convinced that genetics, or physical ability is more important for an athlete.

For example, long distance running is (by far) dominated by Kenyans and they hold many world records. A heavy muscular Scandinavian person, although training would make him a pretty good runner, would never beat a slender kenyan athlete. (Likewise, a slender Kenyan person is unlikely to become an Olympic heavy lifting champion.) Training would definitely improve the performance, but genetics play more dominant role over training.

For this reason, in my opinion, physical ability is more important for an athlete.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Which do you prefer, team sports or individual sports?

I am convinced that I prefer to play team sports rather than individual sports.
I will present two reasons to substantiate my assertion.

First, you can learn social skills. To be in a team, you need to know how to keep a healthy relationship with other teammates. Team sports will surely help you acquire social skills that are going to help you throughout your life.

Secondly, team sports are more fun. Twice a week, I participate in the company’s volleyball club. We basically crack jokes and have fun. (After one-hour practice, I am completely recuperated.)

For these reasons, I prefer to play team sports rather than individual sports.
