Uh, that is over this year Yoku, you wanted my suit A sword? This car demo Sammie Marcel over this year. De la sale not up, Sighel not all. 3. Explanation 1: Greetings: right. So this video is an explanation. Video off greetings. So the first phrase is konnichiwa. Konichiwa. Need t. What? And this means hello? Just simply. Hello. So whenever you want to talk to someone, just say called need to, uh, call me to up. Right. And the next phrase is Haji Mama. State hygiene May must see that, huh? G ma, she has you must. And this means. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. Okay, So whenever you see someone for the first time, just say has you must it? That's me. You, right? And the next one is blank. This blank, this suit blank that suit blank. This. Okay, so in the blank, you just put your name. Okay, So in my case, I say, Marx, this Marx facilities because Max Max is my name, and I use Max as my name. And then you say you put your name in those two south circles, okay? On the screen.

Must your law see good old neg? I e. Seamus, This one is kind of long, but you just gotta know that, right? But there is no direct translation for this phrase in English. So there's a lot off meanings in this phrase ad spending on the context depending on scenes in which you are but in the skin, which you just watched. I used this phrase as I hope I get to know you better. I hope I get to know you better. So whenever you say Euro Shkolnik isom us for the first time meeting that gives the person who is who you are speaking to a good feelings are good impression off you. So whenever you meet someone for the first time, make sure to say this phrase And the next phrase is Well, now my Iowa Woonam Iowa or Nam Iowa or not my a what? And this means your name is in English. Okay. Your name is so which means what's your name, right. So when you want to know the name of the person who you're talking to, You can just simply ask Nam Iowa on, um, Iowa. This phrase actually just means name. Just name, but I wanted to make it as simple as possible because the purpose of this course is Teoh. Help you learn useful phrases in when you go to Spain when you travel to Japan and if it's too complicated, you might not be able to memories everything, and you might not be able to use it. So I just made its simple but Japanese people. We judge, these people actually used this phrase a lot when we forced me someone. Okay. And the next one is height. Hi, E height. And this means yes. Whenever you want to say yes, just say hi. All right. And then next one in Ottawa, not Iowa. And this means end you. Or how about you? What about you? So when someone asks, you ask something about you, you answer the question. But you want to know about them too. So you just can't. You can just say I'm not that well. And you? What about you? How about you? Oh, by the way, I'm sorry. This is now. Monitor this is Ana. What? All right. I'm sorry I made a typo, but this is an Ottawa. I'm sorry. And then next one is e e a. This means no, just simply No. Okay, So whenever you want to say no, just say yet. Next one go menos I go men Nazi go may not see. This means I'm sorry. So when you're sorry, just say this price and then people will Oh, that's okay. That's right. That's right. And what's next is that's all right. That's OK. I'm OK. I'm fine. I'm all right. This is a dye job this year. Dye job. They cio di e job your job. This means that's OK. That's all right. I'm okay. I'm all right. So whenever you want to say, Oh, that's all right. That's okay.

This Scott Blank Kiwa, Dakota Scott Blank E Kiwa taco. This or this phrase means ways the train bound for blank. So you put the name of the place where you want to go in the blank. So, for example, in this kid, I used Tokyo as an example, and I said, Tokyo in Cuba Eliska poco loco. And that means where is the train bound for Tokyo, for example. If you want to go to Nagoya, you can say not going like you are. Don't go this car or whatever you want to go. Okay. And next one is notifiable. Now to hold all not do whole bowl. Not a little. Well, not a whole, though is really a useful phrase. Well, I personally use this phrase a lot on a daily basis, because when you want to say I see all right. Okay. I see you can just say not. Hold on, hold on. So, depending on how you say it, you sound really different. For example, when you say on a whole, though it sounds more like Oh, yeah, That's really cool. I see. But when you say that although it sounds really in different, you know? So you seem like you don't really care about what they're saying or something like that. So just be careful off how you say, But this is this phrase is really, really useful. That hotel And next one, this one, this phrase you must know when you go to Japan, we gotta was Amos rd Gatto goes I must the god goals I e by suit. Aristotle was I must. This means thank you. Thank you. And this phrase is a polite way to say thank you. If you are with your friends and you want to say thanks or something, you can just say Arigato the first part off this phrase. But most likely you're not gonna be with your friends who can speak Japanese, right? That's why it may be your taking this course. So So when you say when you want to say thank you to someone, then say Ariaudo was I must with a smile. Okay. And then the next one is, though it doesn't must door. It has mustard, though he must go see Deutsche does must this means you're welcome. So when someone thanks you just say Doritos mustard and you sound polite The next phrases.

I want to know when the next train is coming. Ok, so I said so. You know they Inshallah, it's this cup. When is the next train?

It's this Cup as you I show, Do you hear? It's this guy. This means when is it right? So you could say shooting. Why, It's this guy as well. But I wanted to give you a little more variations, so I used non Judas Scott, Which means What time is it? Okay, what time is it? So when you don't know what time it is, you can ask someone Nanjie, discard. And then they're gonna tell you what time it is now. So you can use none of this guy in that way as well.

So what you should say when they ask you this question, you should say dye job, this dye job, This I'm good. I'm good. That's all right. I don't need it.

The e job boot scheduled this and I'm good. And the next one is such a coup stem o e This Scott, This phrase is kind of long, but you might want to know this phrase because you wanna try something on at according store, right?
