Introduction – Japanese Lesson 1

Introduction – Japanese Lesson 1


Konnichiwa! Let’s start today’s lesson. We
are going to learning greetings. The first one is “good morning”, the casual one. “Ohayou.”
It sounds like Ohio, right? Okay, please repeat. “Ohayou.” The formal one is “ohayou” plus
“gozaimasu.” Put together, it’s “ohayou gozaimasu.” Good afternoon is “konnichiwa.” Good evening is “konbanwa.” Goodbye, you may know this
one, is “sayounara.” Good night is “oyasumi nasai.” Thank you, for the casual one, is
“arigatou”. Then, do you remember this one? The “good morning” casual one? Hai, ohayou.
How about the formal one? Ohayou gozaimasu. Then can you guess the formal one for thank
you? Arigatou gozaimasu. Excuse me, I’m sorry is “sumimasen.” The longest one, how do you
do (nice to meet you)? Hajimemashite, douzo yoroshiku. Let’s practice “how do you do”
first. Hajimemashite. “Nice to meet you” is “douzo yoroshiku.” Put the three together,
“hajimemashite douzo yoroshiku.” Okay, then let’s practice together. How about this one?
Konbanwa. Arigatou. How about the formal one? Arigatou gozaimasu. Konnichiwa. Sumimasen.
Oyasumi nasai. Sayounara. Konbanwa. Formal one, ohayou gozaimasu. Okay, the longest one.
Hajimemashite douzo yoroshiku. Do you remember all? That’s all for today. See you at Japan
Society. Japan Society de aimashou.

  1. If you're ever having trouble with your japanese i reccomend learning words like "the,are,but," and Subbed anime for inspiration and how to build sentances.

  2. I knew most of those words but I was always forgetting how to say goodnight…♥ I loved this one, I'm gonna learn more and also I'll click the subscribe button ^ω^ ♥

  3. I love your video keep up the good work in a few months I will learn and will be comfortable going to Japan now

  4. Thank you SO much for these videos….. 🙂 I know some of this stuff from training in Uechi-Ryu! 🙂

  5. How do you do ( nice to meet you ) are those 2 separate meaning for both or it's one for how do you do, which is nice to meet you? I'm confused. Sumimasen 😉
    Can i say Ohaio, orea Mathieu , dozo yoroshiku, and that would mean – Good morning i'm Mathew, nice too meet you. Once i see person again , Ohaio, Hajimemashite – Good morning, how do you do.
    Do i understand correct?

  6. It`s already been a year ever since we began reading tutorial “Wamzοzο Loli” (Gοοgle it). The reading knowledge of my little girl has constantly developed. Right this moment, she is now able to read through books. And also, she’s a superb speller too. She even makes up short stories and also constructs sentences. ..

  7. 私は日本とヂズニランドに行きました。Remember not to stand to close to someone unless you’re on train…also check out 秋葉原のアニメフィギャア(高いが可愛です)

  9. She seems sooo nice, really feels like you could have a conversation of over 20 hours with her and she would still enjoy it. Appreciate her more than any other teacher. Sadly I did not remember all at the end but I’ll try again tomorrow.

  10. What thing amazes me in the Japanese culture. They always try to be sweet nice and polite even if traveling dark days. Arigato gazaimasu

  11. I need to learn how to watch anime without subtitles okay my favorite show they only had one season of English but now I need to learn Japanese in like 2 days so hurry it up

  12. I'm only learning this because I think Japanese is a wonderful language and I have a weird love for Japanese culture
    I'm not a weeb I just find it beautiful and interesting so I decided to learn some 🙂

  13. I wish that there was text in Romaji and both of the Kana types, to better get the gist of what she's saying. (Sumimasen, sensei, but I need the text to go along with what I'm hearing.)

  14. ARIGATOUGOZAIMASU! 10/10 yoroshikuonegaishimasu honestly this was really helpful, like not to compare lr anything but duolingo is just about learning the letters while I really wanted to learn how to speak it so thank you ^^

  15. I’m putting this on repeat so I can learn Japanese and speak it to my favorite wwe wrestlers Kairi Sane, Asuka and Io Shirai!!

  16. Half of the people learning are weebs, does anyone actually want to learn because it is a life skill learning languages ( I know 2 so far)

  17. I just want to learn how to sing this Zankoku na Tenshi no These (A Cruel Angel's Thesis) neon genesis evangelion, so it can looks good in my resume

    Vine para aprender como cantarzankoku na tenshi no these ( la tesis del angel cruel) y se que mire bien en mi entrevista de trabajo

  18. I just wanna learn Japanese because it would be awesome knowing a 3rd language (cause I speak Spanish) and Japanese is such a cool language too

  19. 1. damn japanese is hard… it sucks, i wont need it…
    2. damn, anime is cool…
    3. oooh, the japanese culture is great!
    4. MOOOOOM I wANNA GO TO KYOTOOO I STUDIED ENOUGHHH

  20. visiting japan is a long life dream.i well make use of the basics of the both language and culture before i visit

  21. Also, interesting fact – as a slav Japanese sounds pretty familiar and is easier to learn by using my home language as a base and then building upon that (especially with the two ji sounds, but also elsewhere such as chi).

    One thing that is annoying af is ha and wa. It is literally the same s…. in pronounciation (pronunciation?).

  22. She's cute and very clear. But at times, for non native Japanese people, English subtitles help.
    Like for Good bye it can show sub titles like – SAA YOO NA RA etc

  23. hey, I need somebody who can read some Japanese handwriting and translate it for me. they are notes from the writer of one of my favourite anime which explain a little bit behind the lore of the sci-fi tech I think, but its all written by hand so I cant copy and paste it into a translator on google. anybody who is fluent would be really appreciated. can somebody please get back to me in a reply to this comment? thank you.

  24. アニメを字幕なしで見たい外国人は日本語勉強するのやめな。恐らく難しいであろうからコスパ悪すぎる。もし、本気で習得したいんだったら日本に住んで暮らすしかない。

  25. Good morning Ojayo gozai mas
    good afternoon konichiba
    Good evening combawa
    Goodbye Sayonara
    Goodnight Oyasuminasai
    Thank you Arigato
    (Formal) gozai mas
    Excuse me Sumimasen
    How do you do? Jayimimaste
    Nice to meet you dozo(e) yoroshk
