Lesson Transcript

Hiroko:
We have 24 basic Japanese lessons so far. Do you know how far your Japanese has come? In this lesson, you are going to watch a short skit to review what you learned in this course. In this lesson, やよいさん (yayoisan)and ゆうじさん (yūjisan) are on a blind date. What’s going to happen? Let’s watch and see.

ゆうじ:
はじめまして、ゆうじです。よろしくおねがいします。
やよい:
はじめまして。やよいです。よろしくおねがいします。
Hiroko:
In this scene, we reviewed how to introduce yourself. In the next scene, やよいさん (yayoisan)and ゆうじさん (yūjisan)are going to a nice restaurant. We are going to review some useful restaurant expressions.

Hiroko:
Can you understand the real meaning of this ごめんなさい? (Gomen'nasai?)poor ゆうじ (Yūji). If there are any phrases or expressions that you don’t know, please be sure to check out the previous lessons of the series. Thank you for watching ありがとうございました。 (Arigatō gozaimashita.).

みなさん!

In this video, the last of the Basic Japanese series, we have a longer-than-normal skit that uses a lot of what we have learned in previous videos! Please enjoy :kokoro:

Really great education series. 🙂 Just finished this course recently. Will be a tad slower than average because I want to learn the kanji as I go. 👍

ひろこ先生、JapanesePod101 ありがとうございます!

Hello David,

Thank you for your question.
ハンバーグ is Hamburg steak (a bigger size meatloaf made of minced meat), and
ハンバーガ is hamburger (the sandwich).
In the Line by line they’re talking about ハンバーグ, there’s no mistake.

Let us know if you have any further questions.
Cheers,

In the line by line audio transcript in hiragana it reads ハンバーグ instead of ハンバーガ which was introduced in the vocabularies two lessons ago. Guess this is a mistake?

Best regards.
