Lesson 1-4: 北風と太陽 /The North Wind and the Sun
Slow Speed with Pauses
Natural Speed with Pauses
“Well, next I will try,” the Sun said and then slowly shined on the man. “Ah, it has become warm at last.” Since the Sun appeared, the man looked relieved a little. The man stopped holding his cloaks. Next, the Sun strengthened the power to shine a little. “It’s getting a little hot,” the man said and then took off his cloak. “Now or never!” the Sun looked at the man taking off his cloak and then strengthened the power to shine more. “It’s hot. It’s getting hot suddenly,” the man said, and then took off another cloak. “Yes!” the Sun was glad. Then, the Sun weakened the power and continued to softly shine on the man.
