I would second the criticism that it makes zero sense to do a vocab video with a native speaker and not have any example sentences in japanese, but instead have her make a silly joke in english…

I really like what you’re doing here, but i think it would be helpful to be more demonstrative with the words in Japanese (rather than mostly in English after you introduce the word).

Umai has the same meaning as oishii however, it is less polite than oishii.
