Translation for Reference :

Three people are talking about the holiday.

Child: I want to go to the sea next Sunday!

Dad: Sea? It’s very crowded.

Mom: Uhm..The sea of this area is not beautiful … Well, what about going climbing ?

Child: So I can’t swim. It’s boring

Dad: Mountain is ok. Bring lunch box, enjoy fresh air.

Children: I want to swim !!

Mom: That’s why I say that the sea is not clean?, it’s crowded and makes us feel tired. Please bear with it. How about watching movies? I will buy what you want at the department store on the way home ….

Child: Then mountain is fine. There are rivers in the mountain, that right?

Dad: It’s dangerous to swim in the river … Well, let’s do this way. How about going to the pool of a quite luxury hotel? Eat some delicious food there.

Mom: Good idea!

Child: Anywhere I can swim is okay.

Dad: Let’s decide like this.

Question: What did this family decide to do on Sunday?

  1. Accept crowed and go to the sea
  2. Go to the department to go shopping
  3. Bring lunch box and go climbing
  4. Go to the hotel swimming pool

Instruction to practice:

Type of lesson: Summarize comments

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

1.Note the main ideas

In this type, you need to get key words about each option and opinion about those options.

海:混む (crowded)、きれいじゃない (not beautiful)

山:つまんない (boring)、お弁当持って (bring lunch box) 、きれいな空気すって (enjoy fresh air).


ホテルのプール:いいわね (okay, fine),  おいしいもの食べて ( eat delicious food)

2. Choose the answer:

Answer: 4.ホテルのプールに行く

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

Sea: parents and child disagreed with each other’s opinions (混む、きれいじゃない)

Mountain: parents didn’t give opinions, child disagreed (つまんない). After that child agreed(山でいい), but father disagreed (川で泳ぐのは、危ないからね)

Go shopping: parents didn’t give opinions,  child gave other option(山でいい)

Go to the hotel swimming pool: parents agreed (いいわね), child also agreed (泳げるんだったら、どこでもいい)

The problem is that the whole family decided where to go on Sunday, so we will choose the answer agreed by all 3 members.

Therefore, answer is 4. ホテルのプールに行く (go to the hotel swimming pool)
