I will teach Japanese very slowly. Today’s segment includes…

Greetings

  • Konnichiwa – It is usually used as “hello” or “good day.”
  • Ohayo (gozaimasu) – Good morning. Gozaimasu makes it very formal.
  • Konbanwa – Good evening.
  • Oyasumi (nasai) – Good night. Nasai makes it very formal.
  • Sayonara – Good bye. This is usually used when someone is saying good bye to another person for a long time.
  • Mata ashita – See you tomorrow.

From now on, I’ll write several segments a week covering Japanese words by their class. Today’s class was greetings.

This was brought to you by…

ナ Na

ち Chi, but used with the mora ゃ, it becomes cha
