Japanese Journey 九 — Greetings


I have been learning greetings in Japanese and I am going to use it in this post. こんにちわ is a phrase to say hello or good afternoon.

I know I am behind the schedule, thank you for the patience. ありがとう ございます。Thank you.

I have to go now, but I will be back in Japanese Journey 十.

いってきます。See you.

Lessons learnt

1. いってきます is spoken when you are leaving the house and will be coming back. Since I will be back, いってきます is a better phrase to use compared to さようなら.

2. さようなら is a common phrase you hear from Japanese drama series. But it is used for occasions when you part from someone for a longer period of time.

3. When you learn a second language (or a third and so forth), try to understand how and when the local people use certain phrases in their daily lives and try to use the phrases in your daily life.

    I like point #3, I’ve been studying Mandarin academically, but we haven’t really covered the simple day-to-day phrases. I bought a “Chinese as it’s really spoken” phrase book today for $1, and hopefully will be able to utilize its contents and become more fluent in conversational Mandarin.
