I was wondering if we could start an “Essential or Common Phrases” thread regarding specific situations that can occur if we were to visit Japan? A friend and I wanted to work on remembering basic sentences and practicing once a week just questioning and answering each other.
Topic : Eating at a Restaurant
English : I have an allergy to Shrimp
Japanese (Romaji) : Ebi Arugi nan desu ga.
I really love the jpod’s Survival Phrases podcasts and feel like starting a thread with input from some with japanese experience could really help a lot. They would be familiar with a lot of basic conversation scenarios that we’d most likely experience if we were to visit Japan someday.
I hope to change the topic once a week at a predetermined time. Hopefully we can explore common phrases for topics such as “Basic Conversation Flow” and “Simple / Playful Jokes”.
