Hello Max, How are you?
Have you ever seen “Lost”? It is one of a blockbuster of American TV series. In “Lost”, I like Claire, a cute Australian actress who speaks Australian English. Her boyfriend, Charlie, a actor from England, speaks in British accent. I can’t distinguish Australian English from British English. I listened to Kylie Minogue’s songs on Youtube, but I was a bit disappointed that she sang songs in something like American accent. I met a family at Taronga Zoo and I had a lovely conversation with them. It was a bit difficult to understand their Australian accent, but I felt that Australian in general were kind to Asian people. Maybe, the former prime minister of Australia speaks excellent Mandarin. I saw a bunch of Chinese people in many tourist spots and duty free shops.
I’m glad that you introduce us very interesting topics of Australia. Japan Airline and Qantas used to operate non-stop flights from Narita to Cairns and Melbourne, but now Qantas runs red-eye flights from Narita to Sydney only. When you introduce something interesting topics to us, we will surely be curious about Australian culture and want to visit Australia.
Hello Seiichi! I am well. How are you?
Thank you for your comment.
I have heard of Lost, but to be honest I have never watched it. Do you like it?
Yes, most people who live in Australian cities have quite a neutral accent, so it can be difficult to tell. When I meet other foreigners in Japan, they often think that I am British after hearing my English.
I will write about flights in more detail in another blog, but have you heard about Jetstar? Jetstar is owned by Qantas and operates direct flights from Narita and Osaka to Brisbane and Cairns. They are also starting a new service from Tokyo to Melbourne shortly. The service is not as good as Qantas or JAL but the tickets are very cheap!
Once again, thank you for your interest the blog!
Thank you for your replay. “Lost” is so interesting and I guess it is a good tool to improve our listening comprehension. When I flew on Qantas, a flight attendant told me that Qantas had to sell out their business to Jet star. There is only one hour difference between Japan and Sydney, and we don’t worry about a jet lag. I’ve never been to Melbourne, but it is said that the city is also a fantastic place to visit.
That’s great that you like watching Lost – I enjoy watching Japanese dramas as they are very helpful for practicing listening. Qantas is still Australia’s biggest airline – Jetstar is owned by Qantas. Jetstar is now even more convenient because of Jetstar Japan. You can now travel from other cities in Japan like Fukuoka and Sapporo to Australia with Jetstar (but you have to change planes at Narita). Yes, I love Melbourne – personally I like it a lot more than Sydney 🙂 I will introduce Melbourne in another blog soon! Have a great day!
