 Excuse me, I'm trying to change my diet.

And I want to eat something differnt for breakfast.

You know,something healthier. like maybe yogurt,

Is there a yogurt that's low in calories but also has

a lot of protein?We have a lot of options you might like.

Here's one of our most popular brands of blueberry yogurt.

See , there is a lot of protein.Mmm. Nice.But my doctor told me
I shouldn't eat a lot of sweet foods.

and it would put me over the daily amout he recommended.
That's more than 30 grams.

In that case,I suggest buying the plain version of this yogurt.
Adding your own fresh fruit.

Why is the man looking for a certain product?
He want to eat healty food.
He is allergic to particular ingredient.
He had a coupon for a discount.
He had a favorite brand.

Which of the ingredients does the man express concern about?
Sodium ナトリウム

What does the woman suggest the man do?
Try a free sample
Go to a larger branch
Speak with his doctor
Purchase a diffrent item.


How is the meeting?


We talked about the ways to increase sales.

And, seems like we tried everything.
Well ,radio advertising's pretty effective,
though I can't believe how much they charge.

but one guy talked about easy changes to store layout.
They just moved some displays around and
it really made a difference.
I've ofen thought we should move the shoe department from the back of the store
to the front.

so it's across from the store entrance.
and here's an even better idea.put the shoes next to the fitting room.
If people are trying on cloths in the fitting rooms, they all probably
want to get the shoes at the same time.

じょんがら か じょんから か どちらが正しいか

Jongara Bushi is the most famous repatoire in Tsugaru Shamisen.

Some musicsheet say 
Tsugaru 'Jonkara' bushi

But now we mostly pronounce as 'Jongara'

Which is correct Jongara or Jonkara?

The reason why we have two way of pronunciation is below.

We pronounce as 'Jongara' when Jongara Busi was born.

The pronunciation 'Jonkara' had become popular around 1965 because Jonkara is easier to pronounce because after World War II, Jongara Bushi had become faster.

But performers trained before WW II in Tsugaru region,
pronounce as 'Jongara' , so back to the origin,

we have become pronounce as Jongara.

Dera Mr.Vogel:

On behalf of the Highbrook Library,
I would like to my sincere thanks for your generous gifts
The three computers you donated from your store along with the five computers and they are almost always in use.
In our last conversation you had asked how the library staff would control use. We have decided to allow libraly members to use a computer for free for two hours.Nonmembers pay $2 for an hour of use. We also ask all patrons to book a computer in advance because of the high demand.

In addition, your monetray donation has allowed us to extend our hours.The libraly is now open until 8:00 Monday- Thursday , which has led to a growth in membership by permitting more people to visit when their workday is over.

This policy also helps stuedents who want to use libraly resourse aftern school.We have even had several book clubs for that meet in the evenings. Perhaps you would like to joing one

Next year we will be investigating the possiblity of adding a small cafe on the first floor near the community meeting room .

We hope you will consider contributing this project as well,if it seems promising. you will recieve more information in the future about it!


on board soon! We can be in board with priority with a baby . 

Baby can be on board from 4 days old after born.
