Computer games


Shigeru talks to his uncle about his dream job.
義一: 元気か?

Yoshikazu: How are you?
茂: うん、もうすぐ大学卒業だよ。

Shigeru: Yes, I'm almost finished with college.
義一: 卒業後はどうするんだい?

Yoshikazu: What will you do afterwards?
茂: 僕の夢はコンピュータ・ゲームの開発なんだ。

Shigeru: My dream is to develop computer games.
義一: それは楽しそうだな。一日中遊んでお金がもらえるんだものな。

Yoshikazu: That must be fun. Earn money and play all day.
茂: そのとおり! すごくストレスが多いこともあるって聞いたけどね。友達が一人、ビデオゲームの会社で働いてるんだ。1日12時間労働もよくあるみたいだよ。

Shigeru: Exactly! However I heard it can be very stressful. One of my friends works in a video game company. It seems he often works 12 hours a day.
義一: そりゃひどいな! お前も僕みたいに公務員になったほうがいいよ。

Yoshikazu: Oh dear! You should become a civil servant like me!
茂: それは遠慮しとくよ! 僕には退屈すぎるだろうからね!

Shigeru: No thanks! That would be too boring for me!
義一: それか、自分のビデオゲーム会社を設立して、他人を一生懸命働かせるか、だな!

Yoshikazu: Or set up your own video game company and let others work hard!
茂: それが僕のプランだよ。でも、まず経験を積まなくちゃね。

Shigeru: That's my plan. But I have to gain experience first.
義一: うまくいくことを祈ってるよ!

Yoshikazu: I hope everything will go well!
茂: ありがとう!

Shigeru: Thanks!
