Man: I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’ll do it tomorrow. I will be off, so I will definitely do it.

Woman: Didn’t it just say that recently? The fact that you are not doing anything I asked… You just say without doing. That’s what I dislike the most about you! It’s not really about meeting friends. I would rather understand important things like meeting on the company. Anyway, do what I asked you to.

Instruction to practice:

Type of lesson: Find the most accurate answer.

In order to understand and make this type of lesson effectively, you can apply the following steps:

1. Catch the topic and the question:

The first, you need to know what is the situation, the story here?


A woman and a man are talking

=> Subject: not yet determined.

The question is:


What the point of the man that the woman doesn’t like the most?

=> With this type of lesson, you need to focus on noting the woman’s words, there may be many things that women do not like about men but the answers must be the most dislike.

2. Note the main ideas:

Basing on the topic and the question, you need to catch the key words about women’s actions and words

飲み会ばかり : only drinking party

頼んだこと : what asked for

口ばっかり : just say without doing

一番いや : dislike the most

付き合う: meeting

3. Choosing the answer:

Answer is 3. やると言うだけで、何もやってくれないところ 

Basing on the key words we have, perform the analysis as follows:

In this type, all 4 answers are often mentioned in the lesson, so it is easy to make us confused. However you need to focus on the question: the point that women don’t like the most (一番気に入らない). In listening, there is a phrase with the same meaning as 一番 い や ( dislike the most).

The full sentence is 私、あなたのそういうところが一番いや (That’s what I dislike the most about you!) so そういう ところ is the point mentioned previous: やるやるって口ばっかり (just say without doing). Based on that, the answer with the same meaning is 3. The point is just say what to do without doing anything.
