Hi Joel ジョエル,
Thanks for leaving a comment!
Thanks for the comment! You are right! You hear a lot of "tasukete!" in anime! 😁
Thanks all for studying Japanese with us!
"Help me"! It's unbelievable how many times they say tasukete in anime
I learned こんにちは when I was 12 and also knew some other words like はい and ありがとう before I actually started learning Japanese.
Hi Nur F.,
Thank you very much for the nice comment!
はい is a very common very first word for Japanese learners!
My first Japanese word was hai, I think.
This lesson is completely wonderful. I managed to learn a few new phrases as well. Arigatou.
Thank you for sharing your first Japanese words with us. Let us know if you have any questions.
The first japanese word that i learned was either ありがとう or さよなら
I don't really remember anymore, but probably Sayonara or jaa ne.
The first Japanese word that I ever learned was probably さよなら in the 1960's when I was young. I don't remember where I learned it, but since the War was still in most people's memory, this word was easy and common. I could be that I learned it from watching "McHale's Navy" on the テレビ.
My first japanese Phrase was 袈裟固（けさがため）. I was 15 and had joined a judo-club.
