Theme 23: What did you start doing recently? Day 2.
Let’s begin by listening to this week’s dialogue.
Kana and Ben are talking about the things they started doing recently.
Right. Let’s listen to their conversation.
Now, let’s go over what we learned yesterday.
Ben said he started doing kyudo.
I have seen kyudo players wearing special outfits that look like kimonos.
Right. Those are called hakama, traditional Japanese clothing.
Oh, I see. I’d like to try kyudo someday.
Yeah, you should try. So, let’s look at Kana’s part. She started taking pictures, not with a smartphone but with a …
Mm-hmm. Film camera.
Film camera. Mm-hmm.
Have you used film camera?
Ha, ha, yes, definitely.
In my younger days, there were no digital cameras, only film cameras.
Right. I remember I used to feel a little nervous or tense when I was in front of a camera.
Oh, why did you feel nervous?
Well, I didn’t know if the photo would look good or not. You couldn’t check them right away, like you can today.
Okay. I try to be cool, especially for group photos. Now, you can be cool, funny or do all kinds of things with photo apps. Reia, do you like using apps to decorate your photos?
Ah, yes, I do. It’s my hobby.
Okay, it’s your hobby.
Well, yeah, I hear some people are crazy about photo apps.
Yeah, they’re really popular, right?
Okay. So, we’ll find out tomorrow why Kana likes to use a film camera in this digital age. Today, let’s find out what Ben thinks about kyudo. We will start by listening to the first half of the dialogue.
