This is a really nice lesson, but I don't think this should be classified as Absolute Beginner Lessons. Risa is a great teacher, no doubt, but she talks too fast for us absolute beginners.

Thank you for your comment.

You have a good point.

Sabishii is the original word but recently samishii is also accepted.
