N3 listening practice lesson 18 – Tapescript:






Translation for Reference :

A man and a woman are talking on the phone. What will the woman tell Mr. Oyama?

Man: I’m Ogawa from the Japan Newsletter. Is Mr. Oyama there?

Woman: Thank you for always helping us. Unfortunately, Mr. Oyama is currently with a customer. Shall I call you back as soon as he finishes?

Man: Oh, no. Please just tell him that I already mailed the quotation.

What will the woman tell Mr. Oyama?

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:


A man and a woman are talking on the phone.

The question is:


What will the woman tell Mr. Oyama?

2. Note the main ideas:

In this form of listening, we should pay attention to the information relating to Mr. Oyama and what the woman said.

After listening, we have some key words as follows:

終わり次第(おわりしだい): as soon as he finishes

こちらからお電話(こちらからおでんわ): call you back

お見積書(おみつもり): quotation

郵送(ゆうそう): mailing

伝えます(つたえる): to tell, report

3. Choosing the answer:

According to what we have noted, we can deduct:

+ Because Mr. Oyama is currently with a customer (あいにく大山は、ただ今接客中で), the woman suggested that she would call the man back (こちらからお電話させましょうか), but Mr. Ogawa said no (あ、いえ)

+ Mr. Ogawa asked the woman to tell Mr. Oyama that he (Mr. Ogawa) already mailed the quotation (お見積書を郵送させていただいた).

So we choose answer 3. 日本通信の小川が見積を郵送したとのことです。
