パート1対策: 仕事 / 学業
Q1: Are you a student or are you working?
I’m currently a senior at X University, which is one of the top schools in Japan. Admission was incredibly competitive and I sort of burned out after enrollment.
Q2: What are you studying?
Well, I’m majoring in both Literature and accountancy. I deal a lot with numbers and figures day in, day out.
Q3. Why did you choose to study that major?
I have a long-term interest in Accountancy, and also another reason could be because of accountancy itself, since I’ve found my personalities have changed in a positive way.
Q4: What do you do?
I’ve been working at an old language school as a teacher. In fact, this is my first job ever, I’m working really hard to contribute to the success of this prestigious school.
Q5: Why did you choose to do that type of work (or, that job)?
It’s because of job flexibility & my passion for teaching. To be more specific, this job let me give classes online and offers me alternatives to the typical nine-to-five work schedule, enabling me to find a better balance between work and life.
Q6: What do you like/dislike about your job?
Well, the perk of being a teacher is that you’ll surround yourself with inspiring students. What I don’t like about this job is that I have to do a thousand preparation for classes to meet the requirement of my boss. Sometimes I feel a bit overloaded with tons of tasks.
Q7. What’s (the name of) your hometown?
Ehime is my hometown which’s a province located in the west of my country.
Q8. Is that a big city or a small place?
Actually, it is a middle-sized province with slightly more than 500,000 thousand people. It has breathtaking view of picturesque landscapes with rolling mountains and greenish lakes.
Q9: Please describe your hometown a little?
My hometown is traditional. Tradition is preserved by a number of festivals celebrated by local people, and the locals and authorities preserve the historical sites for tourism and education.
Q10. How long have you been living there?
I had lived there around 15 years before I left for Tokyo to study. It’s more than ten years since the day I left my hometown, but it is indeed a good memory of my childhood.

Q11. What kind of housing/accommodation do you live in?
For the past 18 years, I have lived in an apartment with my family. And I think if I can move out and start making a living on my own, I would try my best to have an independent place.
Q12. What do you usually do in your house/flat/room?
Well, definitely I’ll spend some me-time there. I study, I chill out by reading, drawing and dancing all by myself. Sometimes I also invite one or two friends to spend time with.
Q13.Who do you live with?
I live with my family. There are 5 of us and we all have our own room, which is way more comfortable as the older we grow, the more privacy we need for ourselves.
Q14. Do you plan to live there for a long time?
I’m thinking of moving out to start my adult life, hopefully, soon I’ll be able to afford to live in a flat or an apartment.
Q15. Can you describe the place where you live?/ Please describe the room you live in.
Briefly, my humble house locates in a small and quiet street, so coming home to me is like all the craziness that happened outside is left behind. I have my own room with walls painted violet, which is kinda a peaceful color. The air outside is fresh. I usually open the window to enjoy the wind and sunshine, which will help cool down my room without an air conditioner.
