So that’s the behind-the-scenes look alright let’s get back into the post alright let’s start with hello yeah I think I know how long. But you tell me phonetically if, I’m saying konichiwa. So already okay in there well people will understand okay you want to sound more natural yeah yeah Sophie konichiwa konichiwa that’s a veces konichiwa okay. So imagine boys you have five boxes okay, and each box contains sound okay cool hmm Rumi she cheap what what it comes with called me cheese what that second sound is work using call me cheap what good say only Kiba Gong cha okay, and I would say konnichiwa. But it’s called you are all michi one. So interesting with the typical like communication American accent yeah people tend to say konnichiwa :, and they emphasize me. Because that’s what we’re used to right you’re right.
But that’s not how Japanese okay konichiwa konichiwa good démocratie come konichiwa. So it’s more the emphasis is more spread out across the world exactly call me Chi 1 okay how about goodbye. So with the konichiwa okay that’s only good afternoon it is yeah okay you can take on the show up in the morning or at night I’ve been talking a lot of people good afternoon, and telling them wrong okay. So in the morning yeah you want to say Ohio Ohio oh um oh yeah like oh hi Ohio now Ohio well in Japanese there’s different levels of politeness okay. So the way you talk to strangers is different from the way you talk to your friends this is very important we actually just did a post about this, I’ll tell you about that later. But politeness on a scale is very big for Japanese. So with Ohio okay that’s how you say if see your friends okay Ohio.
But if it’s strangers or somebody going in there more important yes you wanna say ohayo gozaimasu ohayo gozaimasu right that’s fortunate Kaluga it doesn’t really have many different versions coming to our. But you usually take on each other to strangers we don’t really take on each other your friend okay konichiwa, and in evening ohio take over goodnight yeah it’s like good evening good evening konbanwa come on walk it okay that’s why when no one ever saying Kony to other people, and they’ve said something completely different back to me yeah okay cool cool Syria come on come on okay that’s like what you say when it stop okay Oh mwah all right right yeah whoo okay, and then only gozaimasu is with the morning Ohio okay cuz, I’m uh okay, and goodbye Oh. So um literally goodbye sayonara sayonara realice that’s probably one japanese word that everybody knows again you don’t emphasizes not okay biola sayonara good aspetta sayonara okay yeah. So it’s not sayonara okay sayonara sayonara okay okay such breaking apart the words that I thought I knew in Japanese are completely wrong okay. So I owe nada this is actually a very very common mistake that I will say. Because like they think like oh you know good bye see you later yeah it’s a lot of fun it’s actually okay we’ve very very rarely used cyber manner very rarely used sayonara that’s really been good enough in fact Sarah is almost as if like a new movie seeing this person ever like have a good life, and yeah alright. So yeah it’s not very appropriate okay okay.
So with your friends with your friends you can say maybe Johnny Johnny Johnny Johnny Johnny good China Oh mata mata Mata Hari after them yeah my stomach mutton is like on you later okay ki around Madonna Janet John ago fam use the same interchangeably crazy idea pretty similar and. So Matt Danner you can use with stranger friends friend Brent John a, and matinee only with friends always protect plot in your workplace with yet Colleen aha there’s a very useful expression okay what is it which is all scatter some of this the first box okay it’s got it Oh got it got it Oh Scott it. So you’re not getting sister against sister good good oh Syria Oh Talia both got a good kick okay. So both got it Oh got it how modest some others good hostess got it some others good perfect hopeful we can say this to your colleagues or scatter this some other some other both got it some others know the pot some of it huh that’s the polite palm okay to your friends you can just say some of this no yeah enough I once got a good Oh got it right okay let’s get it let’s got it get all right, and how about let’s move on to thank you thank you I thought I knew was already got cool hmm. But, I’m sure you’ll tell me that’s actually correct okay yes born out of five yeah. So from the stationaries arigato arigato okay, and I’ve also heard that people just extend yes, and I guess though, and then also is it goes I not great yes I got a long you know the difference between a legato gozaimasu is more formal great the next I may also just extend it. So it’s cuz, I’m ah yes I got all with your friends haha arigato gozaimasu yeah with strangers great now you ever use this might be another one like the side or not you ever use a domo arigato not like a famous, and the damage that even mean anything yeah you can say normal I got – no more I got.
Because, I’m not this is very affordable who would you say to president we do almost never use layers or whatever if you meet the president no we don’t have president we only have Prime Minister no.

So oh that’s like the we just learned that yeah. So we must then will not assume us in nice okay next one I am learning Japanese Oh what is all that you know the nose we can try or maybe, I’m learning or yeah that’s the best kind of like a full phrase isn’t it let me just say yeah Nyong’o bank customer not ready for that nihongo then that’s too many be hung go bang gamma on us free is free syrian nihongo been killed stainless poof after that’s a tongue twister we’ll get that on it do you notice much yes MA yes you know what Maxine’s no it’s another slice a lot of light with Oh polite buffer yeah okay. So when you hear this oh ma okay it means it’s polite different like them okay alright let’s go back let’s go back step that was an aggressive ball okay yes, and no hello hi yes right I got hi hmm. But I don’t know no. So I always say no it is very very interesting.
Because it can be jump or camera language is never simple you’re right. But sometimes it is not in most examples I don’t know. So in English you can simply say yes or no okay okay. So we do have little like a we can literally trunk like ESO lo okay yes is hi hi you already know that you don’t know it yet yeah yeah however we don’t always use high-end PS okay especially yeah yeah I’ve heard hi a lot I’ve never heard or understood that in spoken Japanese we almost never never say e okay okay what do you say. So one of the way it yeah a little shorter. But we don’t, and the princess of course not. Because they know it’s hard in Japanese Japanese people don’t can say no say no it’s hard in Japanese that.
But we don’t simply say no Pocoyo is making an excuse we make it softer that’s so interesting okay. So how does this others along instead of just saying no there’s a long explanation yeah. So instead of saying no we might say that my technical or or I can’t or yeah uh sure that might be difficult how do you say if someone comes up to you, and says is this your ramen what do you say, and you just say what is it we can say she got she got mad. So you’re saying no thank you gee I must mean masses formal great what what she got a must is eat it look correct okay it’s alright it’s different okay she got she got my if you say like it you can you could say yeah yeah.

Because then they don’t stop till all right quite I get it all right let’s let’s do another one I don’t understand Oh changes to this that’s another that’s another thing we don’t say I don’t understand all right great. So if somebody says something to you, and you don’t understand yeah okay would just say nothing I see myself okay excuse me, and if you want to be like if you want to sound really really Japanese yeah you make the kind of better facial expression yeah kind of like a story you know I don’t know sure give me a good can you give a little you guys to do a lot ahead yeah yeah if the facial expressions torneio voice very very important okay why you say things is as important as what you say in Japanese the way you say things is just as important as what you say I guess that that’s very international. But probably within words here as well yeah all right let’s give me give me another one here let’s do how much how much something is I feel like that’s a very important phrase okay let’s start with Kondo Japanese okay casual yeah okay uh Iike that good I can do that on Akira Akira.
