看板(かんばん): signboard, billboard, sign

Translation for Reference :

An international student is talking to a woman. What is this international student’s phone number?

Man : What does the Hiragana characters written on the phone number of that sign mean? The “shi, ro, i, ha” characters…

Woman : Oh, that means the phone number is 4618. “shi” is “shi” in “ichi, ni, san, shi” (one, two, three, four), “ro” is “ro” in “roku” (six), “i” is “i” in “ichi” (one), and…

Man : Oh, I got it! “ha” is “ha” in “hachi” (eight), isn’t it?

Woman : Yes, because it’s a dentist’s sign, it’s easy to remember isn’t it?

Man : Oh, that’s interesting.

Woman : There are the “yo, i, fu, ro” characters on the phone number of the hot spring inn.

Man : Yo, i, fu, ro. “yo” is “yo” in “yon” (four), right? “i” is “i” in “ichi” (one), and “fu”, what is “fu”?

Woman : It is “fu” in “futatsu”. And “ro” is “ro” in “roku”.

Nam : Oh, is that so? I got it! Well, the number 7 is “na”, isn’t it? Then my phone number is “fu, ro, na, shi”. I have a bath (ofuro)… hahaha.

What is this international student’s phone number?





Instruction to practice:

Exercise format: Listen and analyze information

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

This is a difficult form of listening, we must listen to the whole conversation and then choose the answer. With this exercise, there is a rule of phone numbers as follows:

「い」 in 「いち」 : number 1

「ふ」 in「ふたつ」 : number 2

「し」 in「し」 : number 4

「ろ」 in 「ろく」 : number 6

「な」 in「なな」 : number 7

「は」 in 「はち」 : number 8

Finally, the international student said 僕の電話番号は「ふ・ろ・な・し」だ (my phone number is “fu, ro, na, shi”).

So we choose answer 4.2674
