Lately I met a girl on hellotalk, and weve been skyping for up to 5 hours on some nights.
Now, my conversation skill is pretty much non-existent, but I am able to pick up pieces of what she says (shes studying English major so her english skills admirable). Ive had so much exposure to her casual way of speaking recently that im beginning to pick up her monologues:
"何て言うんだろう” or "何だっけ” she says quite often. Now I know that this is probably simple stuff, but nonetheless im feeling quite good about being able to pick this stuff up.
But, recently she just says “ある” a lot, especially when we speak in English. Am I correct in assuming that this is literally translated to “there is”? or am I missing something. Sometimes it occurs out of context and I can’t follow it
Any help would be much appreciated!
