N2 listening practice lesson 29 – Tapescript:


女 : あのう、手紙って、封筒によって、郵便料金が変わってくるんですよね?

係の人 : はい、通常の封筒をご使用の場合は、25g以内は80円、25gを超えて50gまでは、90円です。定形外の封筒をご使用の場合は、50gまでは、120円です。50gを超えて100gまでは、140円ですが…あ、その封筒でしたら、通常料金で大丈夫ですよ。ちょっと量りますね。…えっと、約40gですね。

女 : 速達でお願いしたいんですが、速達料金はおいくらですか。

係の人 : 270円です。

女の人 の手紙の郵便料金は、いくらになりますか。





Vocabulary :

超える(こえる) : to exceed, to be more (than)

速達(そくたつ) : express, special delivery

Translation for Reference :

At the post office, a woman is asking a person in charge about postage. What is the postage for the woman’s letter?

Woman : Excuse me, about the letter, does the postage change depending on the envelope?

Person in charge : Yes, if you use a normal envelope, it is 80 yen within 25g and 90 yen from 25g to 50g. If you use a non-standard envelope, it costs 120 yen for the one being up to 50g.  From 50g to 100g, it costs 140 yen… Oh, if you use that envelope, its price equals the normal price. I will weigh it… Well, it weighed about 40g.

Woman : I would like to send it express, how much is the express delivery fee?

Person in charge : It’s 270 yen.

What is the postage for the woman’s letter?

1.350 yen

2.360 yen

3.390 yen

4.410 yen

Instruction to practice:

Exercise format: Find information.

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

Firstly, we have to listen to the whole audio and find the right information. This is a difficult form of listening, so we need to focus on keywords such as: 通常の封筒 (normal envelope), 定形外の封筒 (non-standard envelope) – each type of envelope has different prices depending on its weight such as: within 25g, from more than 25g to 50g, etc. We should note the prices of each type of envelope carefully.

The person in charge also said that the envelope which the woman was using was a normal envelope, so its price equals the normal price, and it weighed 40g. So the total price is: the cost of the envelope + express delivery fee = 90 + 270 = 360 yen

So the correct answer is answer 2.360円
