Its Fine
Funny thing is that I was so obsessed with correct pronounciations down to the pitch accents that during my trip to Japan whenever I would get to say one of the ten phrases I knew, people started chatting me up and asking how long I've been living in Japan which resulted in broken and embarrassing explanations that I really don't speak Japanese Lesson learned I'm gonna go with sumimaxcuse me and gomen no sorry next time

日本語がへたです。I was wondering, before saying this, would you maybe say some form of "sorry"? For example, if someone said something to you in Japanese, and you didn't understand and wanted to say "Sorry, my japanese isn't very good" ”すみません” げんきです?

Stressful Prick
As a person who’s been watching a lot of your videos, may I suggest you something? First i just wanted to say that I really love the way you teach, it’s very nice and Kawaii but may I give you an advice? Maybe you can speak a little faster 😅 because lots of people (also my friends) clicked on your videos to get to know the sentences or words they wanted to know about( from the title of your videos), but they ( also me ) have to sit through a little long video to get to the point we really wanted to know and I’m sorry but you kind of speak very slow and it makes the learners feel a little bit sleepy
Comment from : Stressful Prick

How about if you're in a situation where someone asks you if you are skilled at something or you need to sell yourself, eg a job interview? How would you say "I am skilled in languages/computers/etc"?

Olivier Legat
Thanks Misa! Great video :-) one question, I've seen the word できる used to say that someone can "do something" / "is good at something" What's the difference with できる and 上手?
Comment from : Olivier Legat

My Japanese friend has gained a lot of sarcasm skills since spending time with me 笑笑
Comment from : 540マンモス

I am subbed to you and am going to watch all of your videos! I am going to Japan this April 2nd to the 10th! Will be in Tokyo and excited to be there I used to live in Japan for 3 years and so I know a little Japanese, but not much I am dedicated to learning it from here on out though even if I only visit Japan every few years!
Comment from : Narxfang

Comment from : Flávio Soares

Hi Misa san! I'm learning Japanese using Duolingo, and I'm really enjoying it! I just wanted to say, thanks for teaching me about 'da ne', I didn't know it was an informal way of saying 'desu ne' May I just say, it sounds like you learned English in the UK, because your accent is quite British :) どうもありがとうございます!
Comment from : Lozzy

The audio quality on your older videos is a little fuzzy It's hard to understand some of the things you say when i don't know what sound the symbols make Maybe you could make a new version of this video?

Great lesson It's fantastic how difficult it is to say I don't speak japanese very well in japanese, it speaks tones about japanese culture I think Arigato gozaimasu

Otaku No Shitpost
I notice that a lot of these end in "ne" Does this mean that these are feminine phrases? If so, how would they be retooled to be masculine?

Kristina Liston
If I can't eat eggs should I say "私はたまごがへたです" or is there a better way to say I can't eat eggs? Also what is the most polite way to ask for no egg on my ramen order? Thank you for the help! love your videos!
Comment from : Kristina Liston

10:08 is that the case for every verb you normally use with する ? For example i always read to study as 勉強する So would i say 勉強が上手です。? Is that correct?
Comment from : Kurax

So useful ! Japanese is really easy with you ! ありがとうござい
Comment from : martine

Well, I can't help but wonder: how do job interviews in Japan look like considering the "humble culture"? How to be humble in a situation when you have to literally praise yourself and your skills?

I literally survived Japan by giggling nervously whilst spluttering 「私の日本語はよくないです」。Seemed to go down quite well in 大阪
Comment from : NEMusic

Ana Castaneda
I really appreciate those little cultural tips you give Learning a language is not enough, you need to know the mentality of the people who speak it as well, so that you don't end up insulting someone Thank you!

hi I like your classes
Comment from : Ertur Temirbaev

Oh horror, this explains the confused looks at my 「ごめんなさい、私の日本語はよないです。」 which means "I'm sorry, my Japanese isn't good" though self-constructed and apparently harder to understand for them!br日本語が得意ではありません, 日本語が得意ではありません, 日本語が得意ではありません, 日本語が得意ではありません It shall be my evening mantra until I get good at Japanese!brBut honestly, thank you for your thorough explanations, breaking sentences down and so forth! Truly, thank you!brbrAlso, small question: isn't using ね a lot somewhat feminine, though?brAt least that's what I've heard, and it concerns me a little to use it as a male ^_^'

I think a good translation of nigate would be "not keen on"

I have only watched a couple of your clips thus far and I was wondering why is your English accent sound a bit like an Aussie or a Kiwi (New Zealand) It is not a bad thing at all, was simply wondering
