Anyway, if you are just learning Japanese, you have to learn the letters.
There are three types of Japanese characters. “Hiragana”, “Katakana”, “Kanji”.
The most basic of these is “Hiragana”.
“Hiragana” is a phonetic alphabet. So, in the extreme, all Japanese conversations can be expressed only by “Hiragana”.
※”Katakana” is a phonetic alphabet used to represent foreign words.
So let’s start with “Hiragana”.
Hiragana has a total of 50 characters.
You might feel a lot.
However, all “Hiragana” can be represented by a table of consonants and vowels.
This time, Let’s study most basic “aiueo”.
With a Real Japanese. I mean slang.
あ sounds “a” ; aza~ssu
あざーっす（a zaaa ssu）
This word is a modern version of “Arigatou gozaimasu” mean thank you.
ありがとうございます（A ri ga to u- go za i ma su）
Hey, Why are you so serious today?
Japanese people omit words right away.
This word including a nuanvce of “flip or clown”
People who are said this word, they feel like, “Is this guy really feel grateful?”
You can use it for your friends, but never for “sensei” and “senpai”.
あざっす(azasssu) sounds more honestly.
You can use it for “senpai” if the “senpai” is kindly.
おごるとは言ってねーよ(ogoru toha itte ne-yo)
AJ(nobu) ; hey , juice (hey , I bring a juice for you)
yaki-onigiri ; thaaaaanks
AJ(nobu) ; “pay for you” don’t say (I never say that I pay for you)
※おごる(ogoru)・・・pay for somebody, invite
※言う (iu)・・・say ; 言って(itte) is a present progressive form of言う
いsounds “i” ; ikeru?
いける？（i ke ru?）
means “can you?”
this coming from “行く(i ku) “& ” V+el ” & “? “
means like “go”&”can”&”?” …so , “Can you go?”
but, You can use this not only about “going”. use it as a “can you do it ?”
It’s also including a meaning of “do yo have a time?”
今日、いける？(do you have a time today?)yaki-onigiri
いける！(I’m free )
うsounds “u” ; uzza
うざい (u za i)
“〇〇い” is a sybol of adjective. First one is nuances that came out of my mouth.
If you find someone uncomfortable or persistent, use this phrase.
Often used by young people, especially girls. Of course, the person who are used this word will hurt their mind.
You can also use this word for the annnoying objects other than people.
あいつマジうっざ（aitsu maji uzza）yaki-onigiri
AJ(nobu) ; The guy really annoying (the guy is really annoying)
yaki-onigiri ; heyhey、calm down
※あいつ(a i tsu)・・・guy (you can use this also rof girl)
※マジ(maji)・・・really （マジ is usualy written in katakana）
えsounds “e” ; e~~~tto
If you are thinking , say “e~~~~~tto”, then people will wait for you.
So, it’s like “well….”
You can also this as a claiming.
はよ決めろや (hayo kimero ya)
AJ(nobu) ; what eat? (what do you wanna eat?)
yaki-onigiri ; well….
AJ(nobu) ; hurry decide (hurry up, decide it)
and, another one ”え〜〜〜” (so, without “tto”)
It’s a noise of complain . Like “booooo”.
AJ(nobu) ; sorry。 today, cannot go. (I’m sorry, I can not go today.)
yaki-onigiri ; boooooo
おsounds “o” ; otsu!
short ver of “おつかれさま (o tsu ka re sa ma)”
more politly “おつかれさまでした(o tsu ka re sa ma de si ta)”
おつかれさま is a one of the most used word in japan
we say this word each other when something finish.
Directly translate is “Mr. tired”.
It has the meaning to respect each other’s efforts.
Most of japanese people are tired of their works, so you can hear this word all around japan.
In a young generation , they omit the word again.
“o tsu (ka re sa ma ) “
then today’s lesson is overAJ(nobu)
