すっかりオンラインレッスンのことを忘れておりました。。。

 

25分しかない授業、、5分しか受けられなかった。。。

 

1日の中で英語を話す貴重な時間。。無駄にしてしまいました。。。

 

 

やはりスケジュール管理大事ですね。。。

 

いつもはテレビよりYouTube派なので、

パソコンの時計を見る習慣があったのですが、、今日は、、、

 

、、、と、誰に対してなのか言い訳しちゃっていますね。。笑

 

言い訳じゃなくて、対策ですね!

 

もう同じミスをしないように、TVを観ることがあればアラームを設定するようにします。。。

 

はい、初反省が入ったところで今回もWritingいってみま~~SHOW!

 

今回のテーマは「Transportation System(交通システム)」です!

 

はい、今日はや~~めたっ。って方多いかもですね。。。

 

なんかよくわかんないけど、質問難しそう・・・

 

そう思っていませんか???

かなり時間かかりました。。。。2時間くらい。。。

 

なので、

ちょっとがんばっちゃおっかな~~って方だけで大丈夫です!笑

 

はいっ、では内容の方を見ていきま~~~SHOW!!

(すみません、今日は日本語お休みさせていただきます。。。)

 


Part1

1.What is the most convenient form of transportation for you?
 (あなたにとってもっとも便利な交通機関はなんですか?)
It is definitely an airplane. I love traveling abroad. So, it is essential for me. I really appreciate the progress of technology like this. Also, I thank the Wright brothers.

 

2. How fast it is? How many passengers can it have at a given time?
(それはどれくらい速いですか?何人乗客を乗せることができますか?)
It transfers one thousand kilometers an hour. It is the fastest transportation of all I can ride. The capacity depends on the aircraft. But an airplane that I often use can carry about two hundred passengers.

 

3. Have you ever missed a train or a bus? What happened?
(あなたはいままでに電車やバスを逃したことがありますか?なにが起きましたか?)
Sadly, I have a lot of experiences like that. The most awful one was when I traveled to Cambodia. I planned to get on a bus that goes to Thailand. I reserved a bus ticket in a guesthouse I stayed. The owner kindly gave me a map to go to the bus stop. So, I was somehow confident to reach there alone. However, I was lost. I asked a passer about how I could get to it. But I couldn’t get what she said. To the matter worse, it was terribly hot day. The departure time eventually passed. So, I went back to the guesthouse again. Then, I made another reservation. Fortunately, there were other passengers. I finally could get to the bus stop with them. Interestingly, it took just ten minutes to arrive from the guesthouse.

 

4.Are taxis expensive in your country?
 (あなたの国ではタクシーは高いですか?)
Undoubtedly, they are expensive. I never take it unless I encounter an emergency. It costs about seven dollars as the base fare in my hometown. However, it is about four dollars in the center of Tokyo. It depends on the region. I always try to use trains to save money.

 

5. What do you think is the safest way to travel? Why do you think so?
 (あなたは移動手段として何がもっとも安全だと思いますか?なぜそう思いますか?)
I believe that the train is the most reliable. It is because I have not heard so many accidents about it. Of course, I hardly hear the accident related to an airplane as well. However, I always feel fear when the airplane takes off. Because The only thing that we can do is to pray that it can land safely.

 


Part2

Describe the transport system in your country.
(あなたの国の交通手段について説明してください。)

There is unique transportation in Japan. It is called “jinrikisha.” It means a car that gets power from a human. It is literally that a man pulls a handcart to carry tourists. It is famous as one of the Japanese cultures. We can see it in Asakusa which is a part of Tokyo, and Kyoto. I have never tried it so far because the fare is quite high. But I hope I will try it with my parents in the future. That must be a wonderful experience. It is one of my dreams. I cannot do that now because of the pandemic. Also, I need to get an income. But I believe I can do that when I get a new job where I can use English. So, it makes me motivated to learn English.


Part3


1. Do you think that the transport system in your country is well-funded by your government?
 (あなたはあなたの国の交通システムは政府によってよく整備されていると思いますか?)
Thankfully, that is correct. I can mostly trust all transport systems because the government overlooks them strictly. If transportation causes a traffic accident, the government demands a measure to prevent similar cases from it. There is an example. An express bus made a traffic accident because of the carelessness caused by his lack of sleep several years ago. After the accident, some restrictions for bus drivers were established by the government. For example, a driver needs to take a rest per four hours or an express bus needs at least two drivers.

 

2. Do you think that the transport system in your country is different from others? Justify your answer.
 (あなたはあなたの国の交通システムは他の国と異なると思いますか?その根拠を教えてください。)
Certainly, I think so. It is well-known that the Japanese transport system is more punctual than in other countries. Train and bus arrive on time every time as well as airplane do. I sometimes miss the train. So, I think I wish I could live in another country at that time.

 

3. There is a proverb that says, "You can't understand a city without using its public transportation system." Do you agree?
 (このような格言があります。「その街を理解するには公共交通機関の利用が欠かせない。」あなたはこれに賛成ですか?)
I partly agree with this. Transportation is not all of a city. However, we can learn a lot of things from that. We can see lots of local people and sceneries from it. Also, we can learn the currency and the cost of living in those countries. Besides, we can learn about the lifestyle of the country if we can use local transportation.


はいっっ!いかがでしたでしょうか??

 

なかなかディープ・・というか難しい質問が多かったですね・・!

 

まぁ、でもこれを乗り越えられれば、かなりレベルアップできていると

思うので!努力は裏切らないです!
