Japanese Words

These series of lessons are all about Japanese words that you will regularly come across when speaking to Japanese people or traveling through Japanese. Make sure you practice your pronunciation using the voice recognition tool, and do the testing at the end of each lesson (where available!). Let's get started learning some Japanese words!

If you’re traveling to a Japanese-speaking country or you're in a Japanese-speaking environment, you need to know some basic everyday Japanese words for those times when you’ve got something to say or questions to ask and the people around you speak only Japanese! This lesson has lists of basic Japanese words for you to peruse.

Hopefully you won't find yourself in an emergency, but if you are in a sticky situation then this lesson on Japanese emergency words will definitely be worth knowing.

In this lesson, we’ll talk about various types of "Sakana", fish in Japanese. Some of these you might find on a plate garnished with lemon, and some you might see on a snorkeling trip, or in a fish tank peeking out from behind some coral!

Sayōnara!
