パート2サンプル ~Music~


Describe a song you like to listen to


You should say

• What the piece of music is called

• How long you have liked it

• When you like to listen to it

And say why you like it so much.


やはりここでも、music のジャンル、classical, Rock, Reggae, Blues、Psychedelic (60’s代-70’s初期の音楽)、などは絶対に押さえておきましょう。本のことを聞かれてもジャンルは外せません。(基本となるジャンルは必ず覚えてください)

(Mystery novel, magazine, Gossip, fiction, non-fiction, Science fiction, Romance, Action, Adventure など)


その他 musical instrument, catchy tune, Lyrics, live music, smash hit なども覚えるといいでしょう。






Well, the word I want to describe it has just slipped my mind. (ど忘れする), anyway, the tool to make musical sounds (musical instrument) と違った表現を使って説明すればその場を逃れることができます。
