緊張するよ！I’m so nervous!
Another e-mail from Interac today:
Interac Co., Ltd – Japanese Language Level Check Spring 2010
We are currently working to find a suitable position for you and as part of this process we will be calling you to check your Japanese language skill level.
The level-check will be a short conversation with a Japanese native speaker. You will be asked a series of common questions that will begin very easily and get progressively more difficult as the conversation progresses.
This is not intended to catch you out in any way and is not something that you should be nervous about, it is simply part of the process to determine what kind of position best suits you as various Boards of Education in Japan have differing needs and requests. We are looking to match your personal requests along with our client needs as best as we possibly can.
Oh this isn’t something to be nervous about is it?
がんばりますよ！I’m going to do my best!
I usually understand things pretty well in Japanese, however I get shy and nervous so easily. Then the big problem starts: I second guess myself at what I’m hearing and thinking. Then I begin to ramble nervously and awkwardly in English. Bad bad bad.
I’m just going to have to prepare myself as best I can.
