トピック 1:日本の大学の真面目な学生とのんきな学生の学習姿勢の違いは何か?
 A 真面目な学生:毎日授業に出席し、優秀(ゆうしゅう)な成績(せいせき)をとり、教授の推薦(すいせん)する政府機関(きかん)か有名企業(きぎょう)に就職したいと思っている。親のコネはあるが、仕事の経験も必要だし、将来(しょうらい)のために、いい人脈(じんみゃく)も築(きづ)いていきたいので、精力的(せいりょくてき)に行動している。

B のん気な学生:大学生活を思い切り楽しみたいと思っている。専門科目の授業には出席しているが、一般科目はほとんどサボって、アルバイトや友人との交流に励んでいる。大学卒業後もフリーターをするつもりなので、成績はあまり気にしていない。一人っ子で、親と同居(どうきょ)だし、生活の事も心配していない。「人生、なんとかなる」が信条(しんじょう)である。

Topic 1: The serious Japanese college student vs. the non-serious Japanese college student

A is a serious student who attends class everyday, earns excellent grades, and is thinking of working either at a government agency or a well-known firm at his professors' urging. His parents have connections, but he is aware that he should get experience working somewhere, and also to ensure his future, he wants to form his own connections, so he is working vigorously towards these goals.
Because he is the type of individual who has a master plan for his future which he plans to carry out to the letter, assuring him a stable and happy life, he has nothing in common with the non-serious student. However, this semester, in the group tutorial for his major, one of these types of students sits right next to him, and his attitude really irritates A. Somehow, he wants to convince this guy, B, to take his classes more seriously. What should he do? How can he guide B to have a more enriching college experience?

B doesn't take his classes seriously and has the attitude of simply partying and having fun through his college years. He does attend classes in his major, but as far as his general ed classes go, he almost never goes; instead, he puts all his efforts into stuff like his job and hanging out with friends. After graduation, he plans to be a "freeter," so he doesn't really care about his grades. He's an only child and still lives at home so he doesn't worry about anything. His motto is: Somehow things will work out. Now, this semester he's taking a group tutorial for his major, and sitting right next to him is this overly-zealous guy who just makes him mad. He wants to tell this guy to slow down and enjoy life more. What should he say to convince this guy that his approach to college life is better?
