【3】I think city governments should put voice guidance device on the road. Especially, the place where a lot of people gather like Shibuya. Actually, I have heard announcements at Tokyo station.
And then city governments should put up posters. It's simple idea but I think it's important to reduce walking while texting.
There is a possibility that everyone will be an assailant. It's too late if you realize how important something was after you lose it. So we have to think about the problem. And this homework is good opportunity to think it over.
You’re right. When I transfer to Yamanote Line at Shinjuku, an all-time super crowded station, I see some people are still texting while walking. It’s dangerous.
I've heard it almost every day. I agree with your comment, it's very dangerous...
Chinatsu, your answer isn't long enough - you need to write 100+ words!
I think I am not a good multi-tasker. Sometimes I do multi-taking. For example, When I do homework, I watch TV and listening to music. Almost case, I cannot focus on my homework. I focus on TV or music. So I don’t think I’m a good multi-tasker. However, I think I am a good multi-tasker when I work part-time at a café. At the café, I have a lot to do. Taking a customer to a seat, taking an order, making drinks, washing-up etc... I have to do those things as quickly as possible when the café is crowded. It is hard but I can make it.
The owner of the café must be very happy hiring someone like you.
I think you're good multi-tasker.
Oh, you worked at cafe! I didn't know that!
I work at cafe, too. I can sympathize your opinion.
I thought I'm not a good multi-tasker. But reading your answer, maybe I thought I'm a good multi-tasker when I work at part-time job!
2) Yes, I agree most women are better multi-taskers than men.
Think about housekeeping.
Many housewives are good at multitasking. While taking care of crying babies, they cook, clean rooms, wash dishes and so on at the same time. They are acquiring multitasking skills every day without realizing
In the office too. In Japan, although female office workers have their own jobs, they have to do extra chores like photocopying, sending faxes for bosses and serving tea to men more than men do.
If househusband should increase and more men office workers should serve tea to female bosses, probably men would be better multi-taskers than women.
Thank you for your comment. Mothers are great!
I agree with you.
Mothers have a lot to do and almost case, they have to do their task by themselves.
I see what you mean. Do you think all the women are good multi-tasker?
I agree with you! Men would be becoming better multi-tasker then women in the near future.
 I don't agree that women are better multi-taskers than men and I think there is no difference between men or women. Actually many women are doing housekeeping such as cleaning and cooking meals while taking care of their children. However men are also multi-tasker because sending an e-mail while participating in meetings and making projects while talking with others. Recently I often see men working while listening to music in the train. In my case, when I was junior high and high school students, a lot of boys and girls were studying with listening to music so I think not only women but also men are multi-tasker.
I agree with you. I think also men is a good at multi-tasker, sometime.
I think so too. How do you think you are a good multi-tasker？
(1) I think I'm a good multi-tasker. Because I often do several things at the same time. For example, I'm watching TV, listening music and playing games while doing homework. Someone think you can't concentrate on anything. But it's easy once you get used to it. However, I saw the web site about "Multi-tasking". It's written that "Multi-tasking isn't good for our brain". I learned that it has many demerits. It can lead to an early recognition function decline. And it's inefficient and make our creativity lower. After reading the web site, I have decided to stop multi-tasking. If some people think they are good multi-tasker themselves, it's an illusion.
Yeah, I think that most people believe they are good multi-taskers, but the truth might be different...
I envy you because you're a good multi-tasker!
I didn't konw that multi-tasking lead to an early recognition function decline.
I'll try not to do multi-tasking too.
I think I’m not a good multi-tasker. When I study, I can’t do anything because of breaking up concentration. For example, I think my speed to read English is slower than usual. In addition, my hobby is watching movies, but recently I have little time to watch them, so I was doing things that I have to finish while watching movies. However, I can’t have enough powers of concentration to watch, because finishing my works are more important than watching movies. After all, I had to repeat the same thing. I always thought if I didn’t need to watch again, I could have done other things. Multi-task takes make a lot of waste of time.
I don't think your speed to read is slow.
Probably you figure things out with more precision.
I think I’m a good at multi-tasker . I thought multi-tasking means people who do to perfect the work. I knew the right meaning of that, I think also applies to me. For example, when I study at home, listening to music and watching TV. It is multi-tasking. Of course I don’t focus enough on my studying. But that’s my studying style, I got used. Sometimes when I study, I talk with my friend of studying abroad on the phone. This style, I can’t concentrate at all. But I have to do both and want to do. So multi-tasking is efficient but is not.
Me too! I have the same studying style as you.
1 I thought I am not a good multi-tasker, but actually, I rearized I am a good multi-tasker. I use smartphone everyday.I often look down the smartphone screen while walking. When I move to other rooms, I always have a smartphone in my hand, and send messages. I have much time to sit down the seat and send messages. But I want to return messages as soon as possible. I became a multi-tasker already. But when it comes to other things. For example I can not study with listening to the music. So I think sometimes,I am a good multi-tasker, but sometimes not a good multi-tasker.
Exactly! I usually do it! I didn't know I am a multi-takser!
2. I think I am not good multi-tasker. There are two reasons. First, I cannot study while listening pop music especially Japanese pop songs. When I listen to Japanese music while studying, I really concentrate listening to music without realize. Second is I cannot talk with someone on the phone while texting messages. I sometimes see someone who talking with someone on the phone using head phone and texting with others at the same time. I was surprised about it. Actually, I tried once, but I was really bad. From those reasons, I think I am not multi-tasker.
