A man and a woman are talking. What is the woman dissatisfied with?

Man : How is your new job?

Woman : This is the worst job. I am made to do various things from morning till night. I don’t like it.

Man : It’s nice to be busy with work.

Woman : It’s not work at all, just chores. I have to copy, make tea or clean up.

Man : Isn’t that good? No responsibility is required. You can get the same salary while you are more relaxed.

Woman : What are you talking about? I still have to be responsible for those, so it is not interesting.

Exercise format:  Prediction

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

The question is [女の人は何が不満ですか] (What is the woman dissatisfied with?), so we need to focus on listening to keywords and the attitude of the woman.

The man asked the woman about her new job. We need to find out in that job the thing that the woman is dissatisfied with. According to the answers, there are four things: content, amount, difficulty and length.

According to the keywords : 仕事が忙しい (the work is busy), 雑用ばっかり (chores) and the woman said [責任があるから、おもしろいんじゃないの] (I still have to be responsible for those, so it is not interesting), so the woman is dissatisfied because she can’t do her right job. Therefore, she is dissatisfied with the content of work.

So we choose answer 1.仕事の内容
