Translation for Reference :

The woman is calling the company. What is the fax sent to the woman?

The woman: Hello. Ah, Manager, it’s Kimura. I have just finished with the Yanato engineering firm.

The man: Thank you very much.

The woman: So, since it’s a bit late, can I go home without returning to the company?

The man: Um, it’s okay. Ah, wait a minute, there is the fax coming, is it alright?

The woman: A, is it the price quotation of the Higashi printing company?

The man: No, it’s from Itou of Tokyo Design.

The woman: Ah, it’s the map, isn’t it? It is for the next week’s meeting. Please put it on the table.

Question: What is the fax sent to the woman?

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 and predict the content of the listening through picture

The situation taking place here is:


The woman is calling the company

The question is:


What is the fax sent to the woman?

2. Note the main ideas:

ヒガシ印刷さん(ひがしいんさつさん): The Higashi printing company

見積書(みつもり): price quotation

東京デザインの伊藤さん(とうきょうでざいいんのいとうさん): Mr. Itou of Tokyo Design


来週の打ち合わせ(らいしゅうのうちあわせ): the next week’s meeting

机の上(つくえのうえ): on the table

3. Choosing the answer:

According to what we have noted, we can deduct that:

First, it is not the price quotation of the Higashi printing company (ヒガシ印刷さんからの見積書), which was indicated from the negation of the man (いや), but it is from Mr. Itou of Tokyo Design ( 東京デザインの伊藤さんだって), and it’s a map (あ、地図ですね).

So we choose answer 3.
