This Week’s Stories
Lesson 141 タスマニアに到着!
Angie: The island of Tasmania is shaped like a heart, Kota.
Angie: Look out the window. You can see Tasmania, now!
Kota: There’s so much green!
Angie: Tasmania has the most rainforest of any state in Australia. And the air and water are especially clean. There are also many rare, amazing animals in Tasmania.
Kota: Like the Tasmanian devil?
Angie: Well, that’s an endangered species. So, I don’t think we’ll see any of them.
Emily: Welcome to Tasmania!
Angie: Aunt Emily! This is Kota. He has stayed with us since April.
Lesson 142 農場で、お手伝い
Emily: The mild climate in Tasmania is perfect for growing fruit.
Kota: Yes, it’s much cooler here than in Sydney.
Emily: Tasmania exports fruit to many countries in Asia. Right now, berries are in season. We have been busy since last week. And those trees over there are our most popular – cherries. So, Angie, Kota, today you’re going to help me with cherry-picking! Take a basket, and let’s start picking!
Kota & Angie: OK!
Lesson 143 ほら、見てごらん
Kota: It’s my first time canoeing.
Emily: Well, you paddled very well.
Kota: The scenery along the river is lovely.
Emily: Tasmanian landscapes are unique in Australia.
Kota: Were you born in Tasmania?
Emily: No, I’m from Sydney originally, like Max.
Kota: Have you lived in Tasmania for a long time?
Emily: Yes, I have. Shh! Look over there! It’s a platypus!
Kota: Wow! Its bill is big.
Emily: You’re lucky. They’re extremely shy animals.
Lesson 144 栄養たっぷりなの
Emily: Thanks. It’s our famous Tasmanian salmon. Our salmon is very nutritious, healthy, and delicious. It’s popular around the world.
Kota: It’s imported to Japan, too.
Angie: And the sauce is delicious.
Emily: It’s made from cherries. You and Kota picked these cherries yesterday.
Kota: Neat! How long have you owned this fruit farm?
Emily: For about ten years.
Kota: So, many Tasmanian products are well-known in Japan. For example, salmon, cherries, and Tasmanian beef.
Emily: And did you know? We grow and eat wasabi, too!
Kota: Wow! There’s a strong connection between Japan and Tasmania!
