英検二次

面接委員:日本人男性+外国人男性

5つのトピックを見たら
3つぐらいが準備したことのあるトピック。
「表現の自由」は英作文でも面接でもやったことが
あるトピックで「また同じでは面白くない」と感じる。
そこでまだ選んだことがない
genetic engineering(遺伝子操作)を選ぶ。

立場は肯定で、
論点は、medical progress, food supply, protection of endangered species

だいたいこんな感じ。

It has been a contentious issue whether or not genetic engineering technology should be promoted. I believe that this technology is beneficial to society because it encourages medical advancement, stabilize food supply, and help protects endangered species.

First of all, genetic engineering promotes medicine and treatment. For example, stem cells can be grown into human organs, which would save millions of people's lives contributing to extending human's longevity.

Furthermore, genetic engineering could stabilize the global food supply. Today, millions of people are suffering from hunger. Genetically modified organs can provide people with crops for enough nutrition. Also, stem cells could be turned into synthetic meat which would provide poor countries with sufficient protein without slaughtering animals. This will help solve the food shortage problem.

Finally, the technology would protect endangered species. Currently a number of species are becoming extinct. Cloning technology could help them reproduce to guarantee their survival of species.

In summary, medical progress, stable food supply, and the preservation of endangered species are the benefits ensured by improving genetic engineering technology. Therefore it stands to reason that this technology is beneficial to society.

結論の少し前にタイプアップと言われたが無理やりフィニッシュした。

困ったのは質疑応答。

Q: You mentioned producing synthetic meat. Is synthetic meat actually on the market?
A: I'm sorry to say that synthetic meat is still under development, but I believe chances are good that the project will be successful in the near future, considering the development of the technology.

Q: Some people express concerns over the development of genetic engineering. How do you feel about their opinions?
A: I understand there are sensitive ethical issues about this technology. Critics advocate that genetic engineers are "playing God." Discussions are to be continued for social consensus over how to utilize this technology.

Q: Are you not concerned about eating Genetically modified food?
A: To be honest, I'm not comfortable about eating the GMO food, because it has not been scientifically proven to be safe. I would say, however, it is a choice of lesser evil. Children are suffering NOW and they must be fed NOW. We should give GMO food the benefit of the doubt and go ahead with this nutrition technology.

基本的に面接委員は反論してくるので
効果的に切り返さないといけない。

しかしながら「具体的は反証データ」を
持っていないため「切り返し」に切れ味なし。
自分でも「いまいちだよなあ」と
苦笑しながら話していた。

今後の課題としては
スピーチ(立論)を用意するだけで満足せず
「この論点ならどのような反論がありえるか?」
までを予測して準備することが必要だと感じた。

(今さら気がつくなよ~)
