女2:そうよねー、くじ引きにする?

男:えー!それで、もしおれになったら困るよー。

女2:そうよねー、上田君には任せられないよねー。

女1:前に、名簿順でやろうって決めたよね。でも、伊藤さんになってから、ずっと彼女がやるって言ってくれて…。やっぱり、名簿順っていうのがいいんじゃない?

Woman 2: Yeah, how do we decide?

Man: Shouldn’t it be good to leave it to someone who wants to do?

Woman 1: Someone who wants to do, I wonder if there is such a person. Because it’s a tough job.

Woman 2: That’s right, how about drawing lots?

Man: Eh! If I am chosen, I will be in trouble.

Woman 2: That’s right, we can’t leave it to Ueda.

Woman 1: We decided with a list of names before, didn’t we? But after Ms. Ito was chosen, everyone always told me that she would do it… After all, isn’t it better to decide with a list of names?

Woman 2: That’s right… It might be the fairest.

Woman 1: Is it?

Man: Hey,  I’m next to Ms. Ito…

Woman 1, 2: Hahaha. Do your best!

Instruction to practice:

Exercise format: Consensus

In order to understand and do this form of exercise effectively, you can apply the following steps:

1. Catch the topic and the question :

The situation taking place here is:

学生3人が、グループの会計係について話しています。

Three students are talking about the group’s accountant.

The question is:

次の係は、どうやって決めますか。

How do they decide the next accountant?

2. Note the main ideas:

You need to note down the important key words that relating to the topic of the talking, each person’s idea and the opinion of others about that idea (to agree/to object).

やりたい人  ->  そんな人いるかなあ ?

くじ引き -> もしおれになったら困るよ

名簿順 -> 一番公平

3. Choosing the answer:

Answer:  3. 名簿の順番で決める

The first idea is to leave someone who wants to become the next accountant (やりたい人にやってもらう). Then the woman said [そんな人いるかなあ。大変な仕事だし] (I wonder if there is such a person. Because it’s a tough job.)

The next idea is to draw lots (くじ引き). Then the man said [もしおれになったら困るよ] (If I am chosen, I will be in trouble.)

The next idea is to decide with a list of names (名簿順). This idea was agreed by the other woman (she said that: それが一番公平かも (It might be the fairest.)
