Let’s start One Point Japanese Lesson!
This month’s topic is “Party”
When I study abroad in Hawaii, there were many kinds of Party at school.
If you live in America, there are Home Party too right?
Well, maybe it’s usual thing in America but in Japan, we don’t really do party.
So! When you invite Japanese to the party, you should use “AITEIREBA” which means “If you are free” in front of the conversation.
Japanese think it’s really rude to refuse the invitation. So if they don’t really wanna go to the party, they will come. I think it’s because Japanese love to think others. Well, It’s nice, but sometimes it’s too much right? Maybe it’s little annoying, but this is Japanese.
So! When you try to invite your Japanese friends to the party, you need to think about them, and make them easier to answer. And “Aiteireba” is the good word for that!
Now, let’s pronounce “Aiteireba”, repeat after me?
Next is Calligraphy timeee.
Today’s Japanese is “Aiteireba”
Have a great party~~~!
Let’s start one point Japanese Lesson! Today’s Japanese is “Zenzen” which means “not at all”
Girls love to talk about diet right?
When Japanaese girls talk about dieting, they really love to say “Oh no~ I’m getting fat~”. well in this situation, even you think that is true, you shouldn’t agree with them. They are saying it, because they want you to disagree about it. So, when your Japanese friend says “oh I’m getting fat”, you should response with “ZENZEN!” this is the most peaceful answer for that. Also, they love to say “omg, you are so skinny!” As you learned now, you should disagree to that. However, if you disagree strongly, like “No, I’m not skinny.”, they might feel a little annoyed. So, you should use “ZENZEN” when you respond. Then you can solve this “annoying” conversation peacefully.
Sometimes, Japanese are little bit annoying, but you can solve it for using “ZENZEN” as a response in these situation.
