Can you give an example of such an English conversation? I don't think I do this unless I am trying to capture action items after a business meeting.In totally friendly or professional professional English conversations people say back the gist of what they have said or agreed. In listening exercises that never happens. What generally happens in real life?
It doesn't, and for good reason. Listening exercises are designed specifically to test learners' comprehension of specific words and grammar points. Real-life conversations are about communication.I don't expect listening exercises to mirror real life merely wondering if it does.
This is almost certainly because the test makers believed that repeating the information too many times would make the question too easy, not because "native Japanese people never summarize what they said."JLPT N4 listening never give the gist of what is agreed to given that is generally what question to answered is for the non-response type exercise. Response types dont have a gist.
Sorry if I misinterpreted your words. It just struck me as a bit curious that one would draw such a grand, sweeping conclusion of how native Japanese people speak (compared to English speakers) based upon artificial conversations designed for very low level learners.I also didnt say it was the universal property of English conversations rather a limited subset of those conversations.
