Let's Speak Japanese

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Japan! You may want to speak to local Japanese people. This page will help you learn basic Japanese with sound. It's originally made for my co-workers in Belgium, but I think it help something for you. Especially 'Basic' looks very easy, but it has an immediate effect.

Basic

Let's start from 'Basic'. There are only two wards.
はい。 HAI. (Yes.)
いいえ。 EEYE. (No.)
If you spoke Yes/No in Japanese "HAI/EE YE", one would be surprised and stare at your face with big smile. If you are not sure, ask to Diego. He is already an expert Japanese speaker.

Also voice files in this page are very useful,

Advance

こんにちわ。 Kon nichi wa. (Hello.)

はじめまして。 Hajime mashi te. (Nice to meet you.)

わたしのなまえはヨハンです。 Watashi no namae wa yohan desu. (My name is Johan.)

べるぎーからきました。 Berugi kara kimashita. (I am from Belgium.)

あなたのおなまえは? Anatano onamae wa? (What is your name?)


And I also made a page for making pronunciations with example voice files. Let's try to speak out some sentences.
If you made this pronunciation, 'Otsukare sama deshita' naturally,  you would be listed in the expert Japanese speakers in your town. This 'Otsukare sama deshita' is a typical Japanese phrase. I am not sure there is like this expression in English, but I cannot find it in English. It means like 'Good work.' ,  'I appreciate you.', ' I proud of you.' or 'Thank you for your hard work.' but any words are not suitable.
I would like to tell you the best moment to use this. You can use it instead of 'Good-bye' in both cases of formal and casual. Especially it's useful to give words when you go home or someone goes home.

おつかれさまでした。 /Otsukare sama deshita.
