Translation for Reference :

A woman and a man are talking.

Woman: Hello, Kato, I’m Mika.

Man: Ah, Mika-chan, I’m sorry! I have not replied to the invitation letter.

Woman: Uhm, I’m getting a reply that you will attend, so that’s fine. Actually, at the reception, I have something want to ask you for help.

Man: Eh! If it is a speech, I will refuse. I’m not good at it.

Woman: Well, not a speech, I want you to do some magic in it and make it fun.

Man: A magic trick? I can do it because I know magic tricks, but I have to speak something.

Woman: Say something a little bit. Kato, you know both of us well.

Man: Well, I understand. I will think in advance. By the way, the hall looks quite magnificent. I don’t have any good suit.

Woman: Don’t care about that, it’s all about you because whatever is ok.

What did the woman call the man for?

  1. To confirm if he will attend the reception
  2. To ask for a speech
  3. To say that whatever clothes are fine
  4. To ask what kind of magic to do

Instruction to practice:

Type of lesson: Get the purpose

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

1. Catch the topic and the question:

With this form, you need to capture the key words to know the main content of the listening.

招待状の出席 (しょうたいじょうのしゅっせき)attend on an invitation

披露宴 (ひろうえん)reception after the wedding

スピーチ speech

手品 (てじな)magic

スーツ  suit

2. Choosing the answer:

Answer: 2. スピーチを頼むため

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

Answer 1: In the listening, the girl said that 出席するって返事はもらってるから、それはいいの (because we receive a reply on attendance, that’s okay) so there’s no need to confirm it => Answer 1 is not correct.

Answer 3: About suit, only when the man is worried, the woman reassure that なんだっていいんだから (wearing anything is okay) so this is not the purpose of this phone => Answer 3 is not correct.

Answer 4: In the listening there is no segment in which the woman asked the man what kind of magic he will do => Answer 4 is not correct.

So only the Answer 2 is left, in the listening, she said that やててもらいたいことがあてて (I have a favor to ask) and then mainly talk about スピーチ (speech)

Therefore the correct answer is 2. スピーチを頼むため
