Test 10

What was a recent story you heard or read on the news, and why was it interesting?
Hi.
I read an article about a soccer ball washed away by the Japanese Tsunami and found on a small island of Alaska. It is a miracle.

First, the ball travelled over 4000 miles across the Pacific Ocean.
Second, a man in this Island found the ball.
Thirdly, his Japanese wife was able to read Japanese characters on the ball.

This ball has been returned to the owner, a 16-year-old boy living in the Tsunami devastated area. The boy was so happy to see the ball again.

Thanks for listening and have a great day.

When you travel, do you spend most of your time on one spot or visit many places?

I prefer to stay in one place rather than visiting many places.
I will present two reasons to support my assertion.
First, I do not enjoy sightseeing. To be specific, when I go on a trip, I will stay at one place just to relax. If I visit many places, I get tired.
Second, it is cheaper to stay in one place. For example, when I traveled to Thailand, I stay at a resort and it did not cost a lot of money. In contrast, my friend visited many places and he spent twice as much money.

For these reasons, I prefer to stay in one place rather than visiting many places.
Thanks for listening and have a great day.

Which part of the news interest you most?

I love to read miracle stories.
For example, the other day I read a story of a soccer ball washed away by the Japanese Tsunami and found on a small island of Alaska. It was a miracle.

First, the ball travelled over 4000 miles across the Pacific Ocean.
Second, a man in this Island found the ball.
Thirdly, his Japanese wife was able to read Japanese characters on the ball.

This ball has been returned to the owner, a 16-year-old boy living in the Tsunami devastated area. The boy was so happy to see the ball again.

I love to read stories about new scientific discoveries.
For example, the other day I read a story about a Japanese satellite called Hayabusa.

This satellite was launched in 2003. The plan was to travel to an asteroid, grab a sample, and return to the earth in 2007. On its return home, it experienced many technical glitches. But each time a problem arose, the scientists managed to find an excellent solution. Finally it came home in 2011.
What is an amazing story.

What section of the newspaper do you most commonly read?

I love to read stories about science.
For example, the other day I read a story about a Japanese satellite called Hayabusa.

This satellite was launched in 2003. The plan was to travel to an asteroid, grab a sample, and return to the earth in 2007. On its return home, however, it experienced many technical glitches. But each time a problem arose, the scientists managed to find an excellent solution. Finally it came home in 2011.
What is an amazing story.

Do you travel to places that you have been to before or new places?

I prefer to travel to places that I have been to rather than new places.

I like to visit the same place, because I know for sure I can relax and enjoy. If I go to some places I never visited before, chances are I do not enjoy the visit. To be specific, every year I visit Kawai island Hawaii. It has many beautiful beaches, not crowded, and I always have a wonderful time there. Last year, however, I went to an island in the Philippines for the first time. The place was dirty, crowded, and I was so disappointed.
For this reason, I prefer to visit places that I have been to.

無理して二つ理由を入れない。45秒しかないので、一つの理由を例を示してゆっくり説明する。
