      Joel: So, Michele, how long have you been living in Japan?

乔尔:米歇尔,你在日本生活多长时间了?

Michele: Well, in total it's been almost four years now.

米歇尔:我在日本生活的时间加起来有四年了。

Joel: Four years. OK. That's about the same for me too.

乔尔:四年。和我一样。

Michele: Oh, yeah.

米歇尔:哦,好。

Joel: Do you feel like your totally used to it? Are you acculturated?

乔尔:你觉得你已经完全适应日本的生活了吗?你适应这里的文化了吗?

Michele: I think so. At times there are still some things that are a little bit difficult but for the most part, I don't have a culture shock anymore.

米歇尔:我想是的。不过有时也会遇到一些问题,不过大多数情况下,我已经没有文化冲击了。

Joel: For example?

乔尔:举例来说呢?

Michele: Something that I still struggle with?

米歇尔:我仍会遇到的问题?

Joel: Yes.

乔尔:对。

Michele: Well, there's still the language barrier because I'm still not fluent in Japanese so, like today I went to the bank and I was trying to do something that was a little out of the ordinary I guess I just had some trouble and I couldn't get it done.

米歇尔:现在还是有语言障碍,因为我的日语还不是太流利,就像今天我去银行,我想可能我要办的业务有些特殊,我遇到了一些麻烦,没有办成。

Joel: And you said you had gone back to the United States...

乔尔:你说过你之前回过美国……

Michele: Canada.

米歇尔:加拿大。

Joel: I'm sorry. You had gone back to Canada and did you have kind of reverse culture shock when you went back?

乔尔:抱歉。你之前回过加拿大,那你回去时有没有遇到反文化冲击?

Michele: Yes, I did actually. I... at that time, I had lived in Japan for about three years and I returned to Canada and I was so used to living in Japan and I guess I had to change my thinking and behaviors a little bit while I was in Japan so when I went back to Canada I felt like, "OK, now I have to change back."

米歇尔:有,我的确感受到了。我在日本生活了三年以后,回了一次加拿大,我已经习惯日本的生活了,我在日本时要稍微改变我的想法和行为,而我回到加拿大以后,感觉我又要把习惯改回去了。

Joel: The first thing I noticed when I had gone back to the United States was in the grocery store, the supermarket, when I was buying my food the cashier would talk to me and ask me questions.

乔尔:我感受到的第一个不同是,我回美国以后去超市买食物,结账时收银员会和我说话,问我些问题。

Michele: Right.

米歇尔:对。

Joel: And when I lived in Asia, the cashiers, they never talk to you, and it just threw me off. It threw me off guard. I was very surprised at how much just people you don't know will approach you and talk to you and ask you questions.

乔尔:可是我在亚洲生活时,收银员从来不会和我说话,所以这让我有些吃惊,让我颇感意外。不认识的人主动接近我,和我说话并问我问题让我感到很惊讶。

Michele: Right.

米歇尔:对。

Joel: Is it the same in Canada?

乔尔:加拿大也是这样吗?

Michele: Yeah. Yeah. I think so. And I also noticed when I went back to Canada, especially I lived near Toronto, and there's people from a lot of different countries in Toronto, I've been so used to seeing only Japanese pieces, so it was a little bit shock to see so many different pieces again whenever I back to Canada.

米歇尔:对,也是这样。另外我回加拿大的时候还注意到一个不同,我住在多伦多附近,多伦多有很多来自世界各地的人,我在日本时已经习惯只看到日本的物品了,可是我回加拿大以后会因为看到那么多不同国家的东西而感到震惊。

Joel: And also, you're planning to move back soon again?

乔尔:另外,你近期有回加拿大的计划吗?

Michele: Well, I'm going to go back Canada in the summer for my holidays but then I'll be back in Japan.

米歇尔:我计划夏天回加拿大度假,然后会再回到日本。

Joel: Oh, I see. What do you think you'll miss most while you're gone?

乔尔:哦,我明白了。你离开日本以后最想念的会是什么?

Michele: What will I miss about Japan?

米歇尔:我会想念日本的什么东西?

Joel: Yeah.

乔尔:对。

Michele: I think I'll miss the food the most. I really love Japanese food.

米歇尔:我想我最想念的会是食物。我真的非常喜欢日本的食物。

Joel: That's exactly the same for me.

乔尔:和我一样。

Michele: Yeah.

米歇尔:对。

Joel: I'll miss my yakisoba.

乔尔:我会想念我最喜欢的日式炒面。

Michele: And good sushi. Udon. I love udon.

米歇尔:还有好吃的寿司。乌冬面。我喜欢乌冬面。
