7 月 L161 最悪の気分です
Hi, you arrived at the snowy wonderland of Kiso Eigo 2.
And here is a snow queen.
Hi, I’m Takada Tomoko. And with me, a playful penguin.
Hey, Geoff here.
And a snow ??? fairy.
Hi, I’m Samantha.
Come join us, listeners. Here we go!

I’m so happy you’re here.
Welcome back.
-When does Miki have to go back to Japan?

How long can you stay here?
I have to go back in March. My father is returning to the main office in April.
So soon? What did your friends say?
How can I tell them?
It won’t be easy. That’s bad news for them, but they will understand.
I feel terrible. Baseball practice starts in March. I was looking forward to playing with everyone. Now I can’t do that.

Mr. Gardner said,”How long can you stay here?”
Miki said, “I have to go back in March.”

be returning (return)(もとの場所に)もどる
main office 本社
so そんなに、それほど
understand わかる、理解する
terrible 最悪の、つらい
(be) looking forward to – (look) を楽しみにしている。「-」には名詞または動名詞が入る)

Q: Miki was looking forward to doing something in March, but now she can’t do it. What was it?
A: Miki said,”Baseball practice starts in March. I was looking forward to playing with everyone. Now I can’t do that.”
So the answer is “playing baseball with everyone.”

どれくらいここにいられるんだい?
3月にはもどらないといけ求せん父が4月に本社にもどりますので。
そんなにすぐ?友だちはみんな、何て言ってた?
わたし、どう言ったらいいんでしょう?
それは簡単じゃないだろうね。彼らにとっては悪いニュースだけれど、わかってくれるよ。
最悪の気分です。3月に野球の練習も始まるし。みんなといっしょにプレーするのを楽しみにしていたんですが。今となってはそれもできません。

Don’t tell them, Miki. Their lives will be over without you.
Don’t be too dramatic, Sam.

I have to go back in March.
わたしは3月にもどらなければなりません。

Miki has to tell her friends the bad news.
美樹は友だちに、その悪い知らせを告げなくてはなりません。

my father, rent a car
my mother, get plane tickets 航空券 (pl.)
I, borrow a guidebook from the library

I have to listen to the story one more time. Will you join me?

Is there anything special you want to do or change in 2019?
Oh, yeah. Definitely. I really have to join a gym. I think having a strong body keeps you healthier, and exercising can actually make you happier.
That’s very true.
How about you, Sam?
I want to travel more. There are so many places I want to see. For example, I want to go to Yakusima and see the big old trees.
I totally agree. I’d like to travel more too.
Where would you like to go, Sensei?
There are so many paces. It’s hard to choose.
Have you ever been to Russia? Vladivostokis is really close by. But the cultures there are so different from Japan’s.
That sounds very interesting. ウラジオストク ???
