Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! You carefully inspect the pile of Japanese food on your plate, and you contemplate your options. Your roommate knows you’re a picky eater, but you don’t want to offend his parents, who have taken you to dinner in a nice Japanese restaurant. You think to yourself in Japanese, “I could make a sculpture out of this mound of noodles, or maybe I could mash that stuff over there down so it looks like I’ve eaten more.” Your roommate, who has been watching you out of the corner of his eye, whispers to you in Japanese, “If you don’t like something, just leave it on your plate. It’s not a big deal.” You respond in Japanese, “Just tell me what stuff is that’s near the edge of my plate.” Your roommate responds in Japanese, “That’s just a special kind of Japanese noodle. It won’t bite you. Try it.” You put some of the Japanese food in your mouth, and while your roommate is correct that it’s not biting you, it’s doing all sorts of other things to your mouth. Thank goodness some Japanese sake is close at hand!

Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! You’ve just sat down for dinner at your in-laws’ house, and your Japanese mother-in-law is bringing out the main course. She announces in Japanese, “I decided to try to make something different tonight…I tried to make some pork barbecue.” You tell her in Japanese, “That sounds great! I can’t wait to try it!” She responds in Japanese, “I wanted to learn more about American culture, so this is a good first step.” As she piles some barbecue on your plate, you study its texture carefully…that doesn’t look like any barbecue you’ve ever seen! Nonetheless, you thank her profusely in Japanese, pick up a fork, and dig in. As you start to chew the pork, your mother-in-law turns to you and asks in Japanese, “Well, what do you think?” You put your finger up to indicate that you’re still chewing and will respond in a second…but a minute later, you’re still chewing! Finally, after your spouse kicks you, you push the meat to the side of your mouth, grit your teeth, and say in Japanese, “It’s got a great chewy texture-just like my mom makes back home!”
