Good morning, everyone.
みなさん、おはようございます。

It’s a great pleasure to be here today.
本日、ここに出席させていただき非常に光栄です。

Please let me introduce myself. I am Dan Wilson from North Shore High School.
自己紹介させてください。 North Shore高校より参りました Daisy Wilsonです。

In my presentation today, I’m going to report on the number of students enrolled in private universities last school year.
このプレゼンテーションでは昨年度、私立大学に入学した生徒数について報告します。

I will start the presentation now.
プレゼンテーションを始めます。

The graph shows that only 30 percent of students were enrolled in private universities. As you can see in the graph, the remaining 70 percent of students were enrolled in public universities. Based on a survey, the top 2 reasons why only 30 percent of students chose to enroll in private universities are the following. First, the tuition fee in private universities is expensive. Second, the slots offered in private universities are limited.
このグラフはたった30%の生徒が私立大学に入学したことを表しています。このグラフで分かるように、残りの70%の生徒は公立大学に入学しています。
アンケートによると、30%の生徒しか私立大学に入学しなかったか上位2つの理由は以下の通りです。
1つめは、私立大学の学費が高いことです。2つめは私立大学の募集枠が限られていることです。

In summary, only 30 percent of students were enrolled in private universities, while the rest were admitted in public universities last school year.
まとめると、昨年度私立大学に入学した生徒は30%、残りの生徒は公立大学に入学しました。

Please raise your hand if you have any questions.
質問がある方は手を上げてください。

Therefore, I conclude that schools should inform students of the scholarship programs offered in different private universities.
したがって、 いくつかの私立大学では奨学金制度があることを生徒に知らせるべきです。

Thank you for listening. Let’s now wrap it up for today.
ご静聴ありがとうございました。今日は終わりにしましょう。
