Now, here’s a quick summary of the thoughts we’ve heard.
First, we’ll say it slowly. Then we’ll say the same summary a little faster.
Listen carefully and try to write down the main points of what Ken and Reo say.

Ken thinks it won’t work out with Saki. Ken and Reo are like peas in a pod, but Ken and Saki are opposites, like night and day. Ken thinks he and Saki have nothing in common. They’re just too different.

Reo thinks Ken shouldn’t give up. He thinks Ken and Saki have a lot in common, so Ken should hang in there. Even if Saki is Ken’s opposite, they get along with each other… and that’s the most important thing.

-Conversation Tips
Today, let’s talk about the phrase: Like what?
Like what?
In the dialogue, talking about Ken and Saki, Reo says,
“You have a lot in common!”
And Ken asks, “Like what?”
“Like what?” means the same thing as “For example?” or “Such as?”
Right. Ken wants Reo to give him some examples of how he and Saki are alike.
Yeah. So, he asks, “Like what?”
This expression is less formal than “For example?” or “Such as?”
Yes. But it’s still okay to use it when talking with a teacher. Riku, let’s practice using this phrase.
Okay.
Ah, there are so many things I want to do during the winter holidays.
Really? Like what?
I want to spend time with my family. I want to spend time with my movie gadget collection, and I want to spend time with my bed… sleeping!
You need a lot of sleep, professor.
I’m afraid so.

-One-on-one Training
In this section, I will help Riku express his thoughts about this week’s topic. So, Riku, tell me, are you and your friends alike?
No, I don’t think so. We are different. For example, my friend likes basketball, but I like baseball.
Okay, good. You’re different.
And we are opposite.
You’re opposites?
Yes. He is good at an exercise.
Uh-huh.
And I’m not good at an exercise.
Okay. It’s a little bit confusing to say “we are different” and “we are opposites.”
Yes.
