Peter: I thought you were just acting.
Takase: You don’t know how much I eat.
Peter: Yoshi-san, we are not going out with her.

Takase: お願いします。(Onegai shimasu.)
Yoshi: はい。いきましょう。ピーターさん。ごめんなさい。(Hai, ikimashō. Pītā-san, gomen nasai.)
Takase: さようなら。(Sayōnara.)
VOCAB AND PHRASE USAGE
Peter: All right. On to the vocab, here we go. Yoshi-san, who is our special guest today?
Yoshi: ナツコさん、こんにちは。(Natsuko-san, kon’nichiwa.)
Natsuko: こんにちは。よろしくお願いします。(Kon’nichiwa. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.)
Peter: よろしくお願いします。(Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.) All right, long conversation in there. Now today’s vocab is almost like a pizza shop. I mean…
Natsuko: Right.
Peter: Most of the words in here have to do with this but there are few other things. So what we are going to do is get right in. Again in this dialogue, we brought together a lot of stuff we’ve been doing over the past weeks and especially a lot of stuff from survival phrases. In survival phrases, we are always focusing on restaurants. So today, there is a lot of information in there. Now we are going to go over a couple of things again because some people may have missed them in the survival phrases. Okay Natsuko-san, first word. お願いします。(Onegai shimasu.)
Natsuko: 最初のキーワードは、注文 (Saisho no kīwādo wa, chūmon)
Peter: Order.
Natsuko: (slow)ちゅうもん (chūmon) (natural speed)注文 (chūmon)
Peter: Now Natsuko, what do we have in the dialogue?
Natsuko: 注文お願いします。(Chūmon onegai shimasu.)
Peter: Now this is the customer asking the person working at the store, I would like to order please.
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: Now what’s the other way around. Sometimes you are sitting at the table, you are waiting a while and the waitress or waiter will come over and ask you. In that case, it’s going to change a bit and what are they going to ask you.
Natsuko: ご注文は?(Go-chūmon wa?)
Peter: Exactly. They add the prefix
Natsuko: ご (go)
Peter: To make it very polite.
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: And then they use the magical は (wa). Now what may come after the magical は(wa)?
Natsuko: ご注文はお決まりですか。(Go-chūmon wa o-kimari desu ka.)
Peter: Okay, again this is very, very polite Japanese. So we just want to give you a little introduction and it’s a bit beyond the scope of today’s lesson but in the future, we are going to be getting into this and actually inside the PDF, we will have more about this extremely polite Japanese but this is something that you will hear from the waitress or the store side asking if you are ready to order. And if you are ready, you can say
Natsuko: はい、お願いします。(Hai, onegai shimasu.)
Peter: And if not, how can we ask for a little bit more time?
Natsuko: もう少し後でお願いします。(Mō sukoshi ato de onegai shimasu.)
Peter: After a little bit, please. So just a little more time, please. Now there are other ways to say this, again more complex ways but right now, for this level, this should suffice. It should be perfect for what you want to get across. All right, so we got the ordering down. What’s next?
Yoshi: 次のキーワードは、以上です。(Tsugi no kīwādo wa, ijō desu.)
Peter: The literal translation is above, but in this context in the restaurant, it means that’s all for your order. That’s it, I am done.
Natsuko: Yes.
Yoshi: (slow)いじょうです (ijō desu) (natural speed)以上です (ijō desu)
Peter: Now again, another one we introduced in survival phrases and we are just bringing it back here because in case some people missed it, now when you are done ordering and you want to let the waitress know or the person taking your order knows that you are finished ordering, we will use this word. ナツコさん、お願いします。(Natsuko-san, onegai shimasu.)
Natsuko: 以上です。(Ijō desu.)
Peter: And then they will know that you are done ordering. All right, what’s next?
Natsuko: 次のキーワードは、マルガリータピザ (Tsugi no kīwādo wa, marugarīta piza)
Peter: Pizza Margherita.
Natsuko: (slow)まるがりーたぴざ (marugarīta piza) (natural speed)マルガリータピザ (marugarīta piza)
Peter: When you go to an Italian restaurant in Japan, the kind of pizza which is plain with mozzarella cheese and four basil leaves, exactly four. They count them. This is the
Natsuko: マルガリータピザ (marugarīta piza)
Peter: Yes. Okay, what's the next word?
Yoshi: 次のキーワードは、トッピング (Tsugi no kīwādo wa, toppingu)
Peter: Topping.
Yoshi: (slow)とっぴんぐ (toppingu) (natural speed)トッピング (toppingu)
Peter: Now this is not exclusively for pizza, right Natsuko-san?
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: What other situations, what other – what other food items can we use this for?
Natsuko: アイス (aisu)
Peter: Which is
Natsuko: Ice cream.
Peter: Yes. What are some toppings for ice cream?
Yoshi: キャラメル (kyarameru)
Peter: Caramel.
Natsuko: マシュマロ (mashumaro)
Peter: Marshmallows. All right, let’s get on to the next one.
Natsuko: 次のキーワードは、アンチョビ (Tsugi no kīwādo wa, anchobi)
Peter: Anchovy.
Natsuko: (slow)あんちょび (anchobi) (natural speed)アンチョビ (anchobi)
Peter: Yoshi-san, let’s ask Natsuko-san the million dollar question. Does she like Anchovies?
Yoshi: ナツコさん、アンチョビは好きですか。(Natsuko-san, anchobi wa suki desu ka.)
Natsuko: はい、大好きです。(Hai, daisuki desu.)
Peter: Okay, next.
Yoshi: 次のキーワードは、追加 (Tsugi no kīwādo wa, tsuika)
Peter: Addition.
Yoshi: (slow)ついか (tsuika) (natural speed)追加 (tsuika)
Peter: Now how do we make this into a verb?
Yoshi: 追加する (tsuika suru)
Peter: Yes, add する (suru). Now Natsuko-san, can you give us an example?
Natsuko: 新しいデータを追加します。(Atarashii dēta o tsuika shimasu.)
Peter: To add on new data. Now this word is used for certain situations. Adding something on to your order, adding something on to your report is 追加 (tsuika). All right, now we are going to get in to some vegetables. How do we say vegetables, Yoshi-san?
Yoshi: 野菜 (yasai)
Peter: Break it down.
Yoshi: (slow)やさい (yasai) (natural speed)野菜 (yasai)
Peter: All right. What do we have first?
Yoshi: ナス (nasu)
Peter: Eggplants.
Yoshi: (slow)なす (nasu) (natural speed)ナス (nasu)
Peter: Yoshi-san, you’ve been to the US. What do they call American eggplants?
Yoshi: 米ナス (beinasu)
Peter: Now the 米ナス (beinasu), the American eggplant is very big.
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: American….
Natsuko: Almost huge.
Peter: It is huge. Well, that is compared to Japanese eggplant. How big are Japanese eggplants?
Natsuko: Usually Japanese eggplants are smaller, much smaller.
Peter: Yes. So that’s why there is this differentiation, but yes Japanese eggplants are quite good, really good.
Natsuko: I love them.
Peter: All right, next.
Natsuko: 次のキーワードは、きのこ (Tsugi no kīwādo wa, kinoko)
Peter: Mushrooms.
Natsuko: (slow)きのこ (kinoko) (natural speed)きのこ (kinoko)
Peter: And what’s the most famous of Japanese mushrooms, Yoshi-san?
Yoshi: しいたけ (shiitake), しいたけ (shiitake) mushroom.
Peter: All right. One more time, please.
Yoshi: しいたけ (shiitake)
Peter: しいたけ (shiitake) mushrooms and
Yoshi: 松茸 (matsutake)
Natsuko: Very expensive one.
Peter: Yes, and stop by japanesepod101.com. We will have pictures of the second one. Give it to us one more time, Yoshi-san.
Yoshi: 松茸 (matsutake)
Peter: 松茸 (matsutake) mushrooms. All right, so one thing I’d like to point out. Now I said しいたけ (shiitake) mushroom and マツタケ (matsutake) mushrooms but actually in Japanese, the word for mushroom is
Natsuko: 茸 (take)
Peter: So the words actually come out to be
Natsuko: しい (shii) mushroom
Peter: And
Natsuko: 松 (matsu) mushroom.
Peter: Yes, but in English, they are known as しいたけ (shiitake) mushrooms and maybe I don’t know if too many people know about the other one まつたけ (matsutake) mushrooms, but we will have more on that in the PDF. All right, next.
Yoshi: 次のキーワードは、ピーマン。(Tsugi no kīwādo wa, pīman.)
Peter: Peppers, green peppers, correct?
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: Green peppers.
Yoshi: (slow)ぴーまん (pīman) (natural speed)ピーマン (pīman)
Peter: Natsuko-san, what’s the word for Red peppers?
Natsuko: The spicy one?
Peter: No, just the nice red peppers. They look alike.
Natsuko: Oh yes, yes.
Peter: The same as the green peppers, just red. Bell peppers maybe.
Natsuko: 赤ピーマン (aka pīman)
Peter: Red peppers. Now what you were asking before, the red peppers, the chilli peppers, how do we say those?
Natsuko: 唐辛子 (tōgarashi)
Peter: Huh hot, 唐辛子 (tōgarashi). One more time.
Natsuko: 唐辛子 (tōgarashi)
Peter: All right. Next.

Something has changed and I am not able to get into the lessons with the "radio talk show". It is my favorite way to learn. Would you be able to help? Thank you.

> Melissa さん、

こんにちは。

コンピューターで、かな を タイプ できる ように なりました か。 すごい!:laughing::thumbsup:

At the restaurant, you can actually say either いじょう です or それだけ です (although

the nuances are different). Both are fine in pretty much any case.


> ec2953-san,

konnichiwa!

のせ is from the verb のせる meaning "to put [something] on [something]".

So we use のせ to describe "something on something else" especially when we refer to

topping of food and/or food presentation.

Hope this helps!

Hello there,


I have a question about the vocabulary expansion.


It's about the pineapple thing:


"パイナップルのせハンバーガーが好きだ"


I couldn't manage to get anything about the meaning of のせ / せ in many dictionaries. Could anyone help me out? I'd appreciate that, thanks =)

こんにち は みんなさん


コンピュウタ で かな に タイピング お する、はじめて です。

It's the first time I'm typing in kana on my computer.


So please bare with me if I make mistakes. I'm also not gonna use kanji, coz I don't know which ones are right. :sweat_smile:


Anyway, here's my question. Suppose you want to order in a restaurant, and you're done ordering, but you forgot the words いじょお です、could you also say それ だけ です?

Jason san,

The sentence structures are different each other.

In the Number 7 sentence, tsuika is a noun.

In the number 9 sentence, tsuika suru is a verb.

It’s like nihongo no benkyou wo suru (I study Japanese) and nihongo wo benkyou suru (I do Japanese study).

Wo can be replaced by mo when the sentence includes the meaning ‘also’.

Dekiru is potential form of suru.

In the lesson notes:


7. TAKASE: Sumimasen. Toppingu ni anchobi no tsuika wa dekimasu ka?


9. TAKASE: Nasu mo tsuika dekimasu ka?


What happened to the "wa" following "tsuika" in sentence #9? Could "wa" just be omitted in both sentences?
