④ He was a professional golfer in Japan.
問3 How was the speaker inspired by Ken?

② She decided to make friends before going overseas.

④ She gained confidence about going abroad.
I was on the train heading home feeling really excited, but at the same time pretty anxious. I had just heard that I had been selected to study sports science at an Australian university. My scholarship included everything ― airfare, school fees, rent, and spending money. I was happy because I’d worked so hard to make this happen. But I started to get a little scared. Could I live in another country for a whole year?
Then by chance, I met my best friend from high school. I hadn’t seen Ken for ages, but I always wondered about him. It turned out that he’d been in the US for the past two years trying to become a professional golfer, and he’d just played in his first pro tournament. He told me that it was pretty tough at first because he couldn’t speak English at all, and he didn’t have any friends there. Now, he’s not only a pro golfer, but also a fluent English speaker with friends from all over the world. Ken’s dream had come true. That really inspired me, and I’m ready for my own adventure now. I’m still kind of nervous, but I know I can do it.
