Model Answers: Let’s Ask Riku

  1. Fear of heights. This is called acrophobia. I don’t think this is so common in my country as we have many mountains and many tall buildings in Japan.
  2. No, I’m not. I really like to be in high places. I think it would be amazing to go bungee jumping or skydiving some day.
  3. When I was a child, I was afraid of thunderstorms. The loud noises really used to freak me out. I’m not afraid of them anymore but I still don’t like them. I think earthquakes are scarier though.
  4. Riding rollercoasters. People enjoy the feeling of falling, going upside down, and moving really fast.
  5. Yes, I have. I went on the “Steel Dragon” at Nagashima Spaland three years ago. At the time, it was the tallest rollercoaster in the world. It was so scary – I loved it!
  6. When I was ten, my father and I were driving on an icy road and he lost control of the car. We ended up crashing into a snowdrift. Looking back, it wasn’t so bad but at the time, I thought I was going to die.
