Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! “How many people in your party, Ma’am?” the hostess asks as you enter the Japanese restaurant. Seating you at your table, she asks in Japanese, “Are you ready to order your drinks?” You politely ask the hostess in Japanese, “Please bring us three waters and one tea for right now…we’re not sure.” The server approaches your table and asks in Japanese, “Will you all need glasses for wine, and how many would that be?” He counts the people around the table in Japanese, “You have five people?” Since there are only four people at your table, they must know your boss will be coming in soon - and they know he’s really a big shot. Sure enough, your boss arrives and moments later, another server approaches and explains in Japanese, “I have two vegetable ramen and three onigiri.” They seem to know his usual as they place one plate in front of him along with one glass of white wine. It’s a good thing you have been studying your Japanese so you didn’t embarrass yourself in front of the staff…not to mention your boss!

How are you supposed to extract any Japanese meaning from meaningless shapes and lines?
