N3 listening practice lesson 8 – Tapescript:
ガイドブック : guidebook
Translation for Reference :
The man and the woman will go to the bookstore from now on. What is the woman going to buy?
The woman: Hey, I’m going to a book store, why don’t you go with me? You said you wanted an English dictionary, right?
The man: Oh, I actually need to buy an electronic dictionary, but there is a magazine that I want, so I will go with you.
Tanaka, what will you buy?
The woman: I will buy a guidebook. I’m planning to go to Kyoto this holiday. I want the one with a detailed map. Incidentally, I will also buy a weekly magazine. That bookstore isn’t big, but the magazine corner is full of magazines.
The man: Yes, indeed. The magazine I want is not sold at any regular bookstore but there.
What is the woman going to buy?
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:
The man and the woman will go to the bookstore from now on.
The question is:
女の人は何を買うつもりですか。What is the woman going to buy?
2. Note the main ideas:
In this form of listening, you need to pay attention to the words that describe the things that the woman want. You should focus on key words instead of trying to listen all the sentences then missing important words.
After listening, we have some key words as follows:
ガイドブック : guidebook
週刊誌: weekly magazine
雑誌コーナー: the magazine corner
3. Choosing the answer:
According to what we have noted, we can deduct:
The things that the man want: 電子辞書, 雑誌
The things that the woman want: ガイドブック, 週刊誌
+ The woman want a guidebook with a detailed map (詳しい地図), not a map => Answer 2 is not true.
+ The English dictionary (英語の辞書) is the thing that the man want => Answer 3 is not true.
+ Similar to answer 2, answer 4 includes a map (地図) => Answer 4 is not true.
So the correct answer is: Answer 1: 京都のガイドブックと雑誌
