Mr. Clark laughed. \
who work in the City of London still wear bowler hate and I suppose they are typical Englishmen.

John is British but has worked in Japan. Etsuko is Japanese from Osaka, but she is studying
in Britain. In the following passage you are going to hear, they are comparing life as they see it inthe two countries. But before listening to it, think of the two countries and try to answer the
following pre-listening questions.
John: I found that living in Japan, people were busier. They seem to work the whole day.
Etsuko: Yes, that?s right. We work from Monday through Saturday, even in summer. You know,
summer in Japan is just horrible. It?s very, very humid and hot, and you need to shower three times
John: So you find it cooler in England?

Etsuko: No, I don?t think so. December, January, February, March.
John: Yes. It?s a little bit shorter if anything.
Etsuko: Ever since I came here, I noticed that the countryside here in England is very beautiful.
John: It?s much flatter than in Japan.

John: Yes. So because the cities are more crowded, the houses tend to be smaller, don?t they?
Etsuko: Yes, they are very compact, and we don?t have a lot of space. In big cities we have a lot of
taller buildings now.
John: Is this a problem because there are more earthquakes in Japan?
Etsuko: Yes, that?s right and…
