Have you heard of the band ‘Logos’?
I have. The band that incorporates history into their songs! I love them.

I read in a magazine that they’re releasing a song about Japanese history, particularly, the warring states era. How cool is that?
Really? How I wish they were already a band when I was in high school. It would‘ve been easier to study history.

True that. My friend Ron, a history teacher, plays their songs occasionally during his lectures. He says his students love them.
That sounds cool. I hope they make a song about the fall of the Romanovs.

PART A_1

Let’s read the dialogue. I will be Sam and you will be Alice. After reading it once, we’ll switch roles.

PART A_2

I’m worried about the economy. There isn’t anything but bad news lately.
The inflation rate is 5.1%. The highest from the past 30 years. I heard that the government is planning on removing tariffs on basic commodities to lower their prices.

I don’t think that’s a good idea. What about locally produced products? They wouldn’t be able to compete with the imported ones.
True that. The inflation is brought by many different factors, but I think the major cause is the tax reform.

Not to mention, the increase in oil prices in the international market. I just hope that these problems will be solved soon.
