Lain

What is college like?

Toko

You’re in junior high school now aren’t you, Lain? So if you’re in junior high and want to keep studying, you go to high school, right? College is where people go if they want to keep studying after high school.

Lain

Do you like to study, Sensei?

Toko

I didn’t used to. But I went to America as an exchange student when I was in junior high school, and I started to feel differently then.

Lain

You were an exchange student. Wow!

Toko

At the time, I just went because my parents wanted me to. But people have different ways of seeing things in other countries, and I learned a lot from that. Looking back, it was a lot of work, and at first, I didn't feel good about it, but now I’m really grateful that I was able to be an exchange student. I learned English, too.

Lain

That’s amazing, Toko Sensei!

Toko

Oh, it’s not so amazing. There are lots of people who have studied much more than I have. I’m really a pretty lazy person. I liked to fool around, really. It’s boring to just study, isn’t it? Do you like to study, Lain?

Lain

Not really.

Toko

What subjects don’t you like?

Lain

Japanese and physical education.

Toko

I see. So you don’t like exercise.

Lain

No, I don’t like physical education.

Toko

You like exercise, then?

Lain

Yes.

Toko

What kind of exercise do you like?

Lain

The metal beam.

Toko

Wow! I used to like running, but I was never good at the metal beam. I would spin around and get too dizzy.

Lain

I like to spin around.

Toko

Both frontwards and backwards?

Lain

Yes, both.

Toko

What don’t you like?

Lain

(silence)

Toko

You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to. But, what kind of study do you like? I'm sorry. Are you tired? Why don't we end early today?
