Here’s the first video in a new series that I’ve decided to make called ‘Kantan Keigo’. Basically the idea is to take formal keigo phrases, break them down and offer alternatives that you might find much more useful on a daily basis.
I’d love it if you guys could have a watch and tell me what you think. Perhaps you could tell me some keigo phrases that you’d like to see featured in the future. Thanks for watching!
P.S. 2 things I’ve already been made aware of.
Should it be kantanNA keigo?
Yes that would be grammatically correct but it just doesn’t have the same ring to it. The channel is called Kantan Japan too but again, names can be a little bit more relaxed with the rules.
The romaji in the video reads HA instead of Wa.
Yep, that’s my bad. Since I started learning, I have almost never used romaji, so I kind of forgot that it was giving you the literally pronunciation of the character. I was thinking from the view that all particle は’s are pronnounced WA, so if I wrote HA, everybody would understand. I’ll fix this in the next video though, as I want it to be ass accessible as possible.
