N3 listening practice lesson 12 – Tapescript:

会社で、男の人と女の人が、明日の電車のストライキについて話しています。女の人は、どうやって会社に来ますか。

女:明日、私鉄のストライキですよね。

男:そうだね。ぼくは車で来るつもりだけれど、君は?

女:JRと地下鉄を乗り継いでと思っているんですが…。

男:家からJRの駅は近いの?

女:それが遠いんですよ。歩くと30分はかかるんです。

主人に車で送ってもらえばいいんですが、あいにく主人は出張中で…。

男:大変ですね。でも、車も混んでいて大変だろうねえ…。

女の人は、明日どうやって会社に来ますか。

Translation for Reference :

At the company, a man and a woman are talking about tomorrow’s train strike. How will the woman come to the company tomorrow?

Woman: There will be a private railway strike tomorrow, right?

Man: That’s right. I am going to go by car, what about you?

Woman: I’m thinking of transferring from the JR to the subway…

Man: Is the JR station near from your house?

Woman: It’s a bit far. It takes 30 minutes to walk.

It would be nice if I could ask my husband to drive me there by car, but unfortunately, he is on a business trip.

Man: That’s too bad. But the roads are crowded with cars so it’s gonna be tough.

How will the woman come to the company tomorrow?

Instruction to practice:

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 situation taking place here is:

会社で、男の人と女の人が、明日の電車のストライキについて話しています

At the company, a man and a woman are talking about tomorrow’s train strike.

The question is:

女の人は、明日どうやって会社に来ますか。

How will the woman come to the company tomorrow?

2. Note the main ideas:

In this form of listening, you need to pay attention to the words that describe the vehicles to get to the company tomorrow. And you should also focus on key words instead of trying to hear all the sentences then missing important words.

After listening, we have some key words as follows:

車 :  car

JRと地下鉄 : JR and the subway

歩く: to walk

主人に車で送って : (to ask) husband to drive me there by car

3. Choosing the answer:

According to what we have noted, we can deduct:

The woman thought of asking her husband to send her to the company by car (主人に車で送って), but unfortunately, he is on a business trip. (あいにく主人は出張中), so we can eliminate all the answers including car (Answer 1, answer 2 and answer 4).

Therefore, we choose answer 3. JRと地下鉄
