(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)

PART D_2

Tokyo has an excellent transportation system which includes trains, subways, buses, and taxis. The two best ways to get around Tokyo are trains and subways which are connected to each other. The “Tokyo Loop Line” is the most useful train line which could be used if one is planning to visit Shinjuku. The fare could be paid using subway passes or prepaid cards. Since subways and trains are more convenient, very few people use the Tokyo Bus system. So, it is good for people who like less-crowded vehicles. The bus fare could be paid using One-Day Bus passes or prepaid cards and in cash through fare machines. Taxis in Tokyo are easy to catch so it is convenient for people who have luggage. However, the fare is quite expensive which could be paid in cash or credit card. For example, if one is going to Shinjuku Station from Tokyo Station, it will cost around 3,500 yen.
Getting around Tokyo is a great experience. Choosing the right transportation system is important so that one could enjoy getting around Tokyo.

In 3rd century B.C., the first known museum was opened in Egypt. Since then, museums could be found in any country around the world. Museums have set a traditional purpose in collecting and preventing damages on objects and materials with historical importance. Museums are also in-charge of research and presentation of the historical materials for entertainment and education purposes.
In the early days, museums were not open to the general public. Only the rich and educated people could visit museums, so most people were not interested in exploring them. However, as time pass, people realized and suggested that museums should be more open to the public, especially to children because it is a way for them to learn from the past.
Museums are important in promoting cultural education. Through the presentation of historical objects, people could recognize the differences between facts and opinions about history. Nowadays, museums improve modern education by letting people to take part in knowing the facts in history and assisting future generations to appreciate their culture.

The science of life
Biology is the study of living things. Its name comes from the Greek words “bios” which means life, and “logos” which means study. Biology aims to understand the structure, function, and origin of all living things.
Up to this day, it is still a question when and how the study of biology began. However, it is believed that early humans had knowledge of animals and plants around them as they were significant for human survival.
Biology is divided into different branches. Some of which are anatomy, botany, and ecology. Anatomy deals with the structure and parts of living things. It is divided into three areas. The first one is the human anatomy which is responsible for the human body and its structure. Second, zootomy which focuses on the structures of the animals. The last one is phytotomy which deals with the internal structures of plants.
Meanwhile, botany is the scientific study of plants. It includes its structure, properties, types, and environmental impact. Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher, is considered as the father of botany.
On the other hand, zoology which is also known as animal science is responsible for the study of animal life. A Greek philosopher named Aristotle is considered to be the first to practice scientific zoology.
Biology is important not only to humans but to all other living things. It helps people understand their surroundings and how they are connected with one another. In addition to that, it provides a significant contribution to sustain human life and the environment.

PART B_2

Cultural differences might affect businesses
Nowadays, a lot of companies have been doing business abroad. However, there are cultural differences that businesspersons should be careful about.
In the U.S., it is very common to have a small talk regarding personal life before starting a meeting. Meanwhile, in some cultures, talking about personal life may be seen in a bad way as it is considered wasting time. Another example of cultural differences is about being confrontational. In North and Latin America, businesspersons usually say things directly and are used to confrontations. However, in Asia, they are usually more collaborative and usually not comfortable taking an action that might hurt other people.
Speaking different languages could also be one of the biggest problems business people may encounter when dealing with foreign companies. So, it is important to keep their speech simple and direct to the point. Avoiding fancy words might also come in handy. A simple speech would help minimize miscommunication.
It is also important to be mindful of their actions. In Western countries, eye contact is normal. However, in most Asian countries, it is considered rude.
How businesspersons deal with their clients might significantly affect their business. So, they have to keep in mind that they should consider the cultural differences to keep a good working relationship with their foreign clients.

Smartphones have changed how people communicate. Through modern technology, smartphones have been gaining more and more uses every day.

People can send text messages anywhere across the world in less than a second. In addition to that, people can do video calls to see the person on the other line. Having a smartphone could also have a disadvantage such as decreased face-to-face communication which often leads to arguments.

PART B_2

The cultural differences between Western and Asian countries
Learning about other countries’ culture is one of the most important things which people must do before visiting or working in a foreign country.
Western and Asian countries have significant cultural differences. For instance, western people believe that being straightforward is essential when dealing with certain issues. On the other hand, Asians people prefer to deal with issues indirectly to avoid possible conflicts.
Western people are more individualistic as compared to Asian people. Western people are more comfortable making decisions on their own. Meanwhile, Asian people feel more comfortable being a part of a group. They generally seek advice from other people, especially with their friends and family when making important decisions. Also, going out as a group is more common to Asian people than Western people. That is why group sizes are usually small for Western people while large groups are common for Asian people, especially during special occasions.
Asian people often form close emotional relationships with their colleagues. They feel the importance of it and keeping those people for life. While Western people prefer to keep their circle small and create a strong relationship with a few people who are with the same interest.
In this day and age, it is important that people are aware of the cultural differences as they would help them create a good and respectful relationship with other people from different parts of the world.

PART B_2

The decreasing Japanese population
Nowadays, most Japanese young adults do not consider having their own children. Because of this, Japan’s population has been decreasing rapidly.
According to the health ministry, there were only 946,000 babies born in Japan in 2017. This is the lowest birth rate since the year 1899. On the other hand, there were about 1,340,433 Japanese people died in the same year. Meaning, the Japanese population has decreased by 400,000 people.
According to the Japanese Statistics Bureau, the current Japanese population is around 127 million and is expected to decrease by 100 million by 2020. If this continues over the years, the Japanese population would fall to 8.5 million by 2300.
The Japanese government established projects in the mid-1990 that aim to make having kids more appealing for young adults. These projects were expected to reduce the costs of childcare and force companies to create policies that are more parent-friendly. Although the plan did not turn into a success, it helped the population decline from getting worse.
To control the decreasing number of the Japanese population, the government should consider accepting immigrants from a different perspective. However, the government seems not ready yet to make an attempt in doing this. The number of foreign workers in Japan has significantly increased from 300,000 in 2007 to almost 1.5 million in 2017. However, not all of them are offered to become permanent residents. They are also not allowed to bring over their families which discourages them from staying for a long time.
If the Japanese population continues to decrease in the future, it is expected that people from other countries would encounter fewer Japanese people in the coming years.

Looking back at history
An exhibition called “Looking Back at the Twentieth Century” presented 300 photographs from the past which allowed people to look back at history.
The great progress in the world started during the 20th century which made people’s lives comfortable. However, it was also the time when millions of people lost their lives in terrible wars.
One of the photographs in the exhibition showed a boy carrying a baby on his back. It was taken by Joe O’Donnell in Japan in 1945. In an interview, he told the story behind the photograph. He said that the boy whom he took a picture of looked different and serious. When the boy arrived, men wearing white masks came to him, took the baby on his back, and placed the baby on the fire. That was the time when he realized that the baby on the boy’s back was dead. The boy stood straight and watched the flames for a while then silently walked away from it. This is just one of the hundreds of photographs with an unpleasant past.
