Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Sometimes, no matter how delightful the Japanese food is, no matter how kind and thoughtful your friends are, no matter how comfortable the accommodations, no matter how wonderful the shopping, you just want something from home. You look up ahead, and there, big as life, a welcoming beacon, the Golden Arches. The smile on your face could be mistaken for the Japanese rising sun. You leave your friends for a while and hurry in. Of course, everyone in the place is Japanese, and the signs are all in Japanese, but no matter, it’s a little bit of home. You make your way to the order counter and ask maybe the silliest question of your life, in Japanese - but you must ask it. “Do you have hamburgers?” Looking at you as if you have lost your mind, the clerk looks around as if this is a joke, and then slowly answer in Japanese, “Yes.” You continue hastily in Japanese, “Do you have french fries?” Again, he answers in Japanese, “Yes, we do.” Sighing in relief, you just have one last ridiculous question in Japanese, “Do you have milk shakes?” Staring in disbelief, the clerk answers again, “Yes.” A total success, and you asked all the right questions, all in Japanese. Life is good.

Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! This is turning into a lot of fun. Your Japanese friends are trying to teach you how to cook Japanese foods. But you don’t trust your friends entirely. They like foods so spicy hot they make you perspire for hours. You have to ask more questions about this food. “What is that?” you ask in Japanese. Rolling their eyes, they tell you to relax. Still not convinced, you question again in Japanese, “What is that you’re putting in now?” Laughing at your persistence and paranoia, they explain in Japanese, “Just a little dry Japanese horseradish…a special kind.” Hmm… So you press on in Japanese, “So what’s this going to be once it’s done?” “Wasabi, relax, you’re going to love it.” your Japanese friends all say. You are not the patient type, asking again in Japanese, “What’s that over there?” They explain, “That’s the sashimi. It goes with the wasabi.” If they could just tell you as you go you wouldn’t have to keep asking questions! But…you ask again in Japanese, “What’s sashimi?” Now they’re giving each other looks as if to say, “Okay, who’s going to tell him what ’sashimi’ means in Japanese.” One of them starts to talk, hesitates, and then mumbles something. “Well,” he says, “Sashimi is slices of raw fish.” “So how do we cook it?” you ask in Japanese. They’re giving each other those looks again… Oh…you’ve just found a terrific appetite suppressant.
