INTRODUCTION
Natsuko: 夏子です。 (Natsuko desu.)
Peter: Peter here. Plenty of pasta. Natsuko-San, what are we talking about today?
Natsuko: Pasta.
Peter: Pasta.
Natsuko: Sounds nice.
Peter: Yes. And surprisingly Tokyo has some very nice pasta.
Natsuko: Yes I love them.
Peter: Now let’s just cover a few things before we get into the conversation. Natsuko-San, the politeness level here. What are we using today?
Natsuko: Polite Japanese.
Peter: And the conversation today is between, probably, two co-workers. And they are getting ready to go out for lunch and one co-worker will invite the other to go out with her and they will be talking about going out to lunch together. All right, with that said, here we go.

POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Peter: 夏子さん、今日の会話、どう思いましたか。 (Natsukosan, kyō no kaiwa, dō omoimashita ka.)
Natsuko: うん。美味しそうなパスタ屋さんですね。 (Un. Oishi-sōna pasuta-ya-san desu ne.)
Peter: Yeah it sounds really good. So much Italian food vocabulary today.
Natsuko: Uhoo.
Peter: So much.
Natsuko: Very useful in Tokyo.
Peter: You know what, I have to agree with you on that. Again it’s almost shocking how much Italian food there is and how much it’s eaten.
Natsuko: Yes and they are really delicious in Tokyo.
Peter: Really, really good.
Natsuko: There are some really good restaurants around here in Nakasaka.
Peter: Yeah so if you stop by the studio or if you stop by our offices to visit…
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: Natsuko-san will be sure to take you out.
Natsuko: I can recommend some restaurants.
Peter: So you are going to put them in the comments today? I am catching you a lot today, Natsuko-san.
VOCAB LIST
Peter: All right, let’s move on to today’s vocabulary. And Natsuko-san, first word.
Natsuko: 一緒に (issho ni)
Peter: Together.
Natsuko: (slow)いっしょに (issho ni) (natural speed) 一緒に (issho ni)
Peter: Sample sentence please.
Natsuko: 一緒にテニスをしませんか。 (Issho ni tenisu o shimasen ka.)
Peter: Would you like to play tennis together? Next we have
Natsuko: 食事 (shokuji)
Peter: Meal.
Natsuko: (slow)しょくじ (shokuji) (natural speed) 食事 (shokuji)
Peter: Followed by
Natsuko: お気に入り (okiniiri)
Peter: Favorite.
Natsuko: (slow)おきにいり (okiniiri) (natural speed)お気に入り (okiniiri)
Peter: Now let’s take a look at this phrase. First we have
Natsuko: お (o)
Peter: Which is the polite prefix followed by
Natsuko: 気 (ki)
Peter: Which is
Natsuko: Feeling.
Peter: Then we have the particle に (ni) followed by
Natsuko: 入り (iri)
Peter: To enter. So literally the feeling enters. That’s it and this equates to something that one likes. And this can relate to many different things. Food, teams, people right?
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: Like some teachers have a class and Natsuko-san, which student do you like?
Natsuko: お気に入り (okiniiri)
Peter: Yes. So it can be used in many situations talking about what one likes. Now if I want to ask someone which is their favorite, how can we say that?
Natsuko: お気に入りは何ですか (Okiniiri wa nan desu ka) or maybe お気に入りはどれですか (Okiniiri wa dore desu ka).
Peter: Yeah which is your favorite or what is your favorite and which comes into play because usually we are talking about a group of things. You know, at a food, which food is your favorite?
Natsuko: Yeah or which is your favorite team?
Peter: Yes. And which is your favorite dish and which is your favorite student, which is your favorite host Natsuko-san?
Natsuko: When you relate it to person, you have to say お気に入りは誰ですか (Okiniiri wa dare desu ka)?
Peter: Really?
Natsuko: Yes, I think that will be more polite.
Peter: Who is your favorite? There are many, many ways to use this and it’s a great expression. I am getting – I am carried away with this expression but just a little bit more. If you give a gift to somebody and they like it, you can actually use this expression with thank you to show your appreciation for them actually liking it which is a very Japanese thing to do.
Natsuko: 気に入って頂けて嬉しいです。 (Kiniitte itadakete ureshii desu.)
Peter: Thank you for liking it. And again this is very – you know, you are giving someone a gift and then you are actually thanking them very politely for actually liking it.
Natsuko: So it’s the expression that you are actually glad and relieved to find out that you like the person.
Peter: Yes yeah and I think with customers and people with higher social status, this phrase is very useful when you give something to your boss or somebody higher than you or if you are in business.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: This is a really polite expression for a customer that purchases something and then makes a comment about it. All right, on and on we go. Next we have.
Natsuko: 郵便局 (yūbinkyoku)
Peter: Post office.
Natsuko: (slow)ゆうびんきょく (yūbinkyoku) (natural speed)郵便局 (yūbinkyoku)
Peter: Followed by
Natsuko: 隣り (tonari)
Peter: Next to
Natsuko: (slow)となり (tonari) (natural speed)隣り (tonari)
Peter: Then we have
Natsuko: スパゲティ屋 (supageti-ya)
Peter: Spaghetti restaurant.
Natsuko: (slow)スパゲティや (supagetiya) (natural speed)スパゲティ屋 (supageti-ya)
Peter: ちょっと聞いたことないですね。 (Chotto kiita koto nai desu ne.) Natsuko-san, have you heard of this?
Natsuko: I think we relate more often パスタ屋 (pasuta-ya).
Peter: Pasta restaurant.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: But I think I know where this one comes from.
Natsuko: Where?
Peter: The person who wrote the story actually lives in Kunitachi and in Kunitachi city, there is actually a famous restaurant and it is スパゲティ屋 (supageti-ya)。
Natsuko: Is that the name of the restaurant?
Peter: It was a name but then below that, it has this expression. So that’s where this comes from.
Natsuko: Oh really.
Peter: But yeah mainstream, I don’t know.
Natsuko: So it’s pretty local.
Peter: I think it's very local.
Natsuko: Well it’s used in Japanese of course.
Peter: Exactly that’s what we are going to point out but maybe not the most common expression.
Natsuko: We use both スパゲティ屋。パスタ屋。 (Supageti-ya. Pasuta-ya.)
Peter: Next we have
Natsuko: 残念 (zan'nen)
Peter: Regret, regrettable.
Natsuko: (slow)ざんねん (zan'nen) (natural speed)残念 (zan'nen)
Peter: Now in addition to being used as a word, this can also be used as an expression.
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: Depending on the politeness level and intonation. And you saw at the end of this conversation the two people who wanted to get a seat at the restaurant, they said.
Natsuko: なーんだ。残念。 (Na ̄ nda. Zan'nen.)
Peter: And here it is, that’s too bad. So it’s actually a phrase in this context.
Natsuko: Right.
Peter: Okay so context will tell you if this is a standalone word or a phrase. All right, finally we have.
Natsuko: この辺 (kono hen)
Peter: Around here.
Natsuko: (slow)このへん (kono hen) (natural speed)この辺 (kono hen)

Lesson focus

Peter: All right. Now let’s take a look at the conversation and a few points. Now let’s start out with the names. What are the two names of the people here Natsuko-san?
Natsuko: 田淵 (tabuchi) and 岡田 (okada)
Peter: 岡田 (Okada) is not very unusual. What about the other name?
Natsuko: 田淵 (Tabuchi)
Peter: 田淵 (Tabuchi)
Natsuko: But it is a usual name. Not… you know, not everywhere but…
Peter: Now the reason I am pointing out this name is, when you check out the PDF or if you check out the learning center, please check out this kanji because the kanji is very interesting. So yeah you should really check this out. To tell you the truth, I couldn’t read this name.
Natsuko: Maybe yeah but this kanji is like you know something like a design, isn’t it?
Peter: Yeah it’s really nice. The water radical on the left, then on the right Natsuko-san?
Natsuko: It’s really like some shape like a tile isn’t it?
Peter: Yeah you have to check this kanji and check out the PDF. Okay in the first sentence, we use a grammatical structure used when inviting someone to do something. And here we are using polite Japanese. Again two co-workers who probably have an office relationship and they keep things very formal. We use the negative polite plus the question marking particle. So in the first sentence, we have.
Natsuko: 一緒に食事しませんか。 (Issho ni shokuji shimasen ka.)
Peter: Literally together meal won’t do question mark. Together meal, won’t do question mark.
Natsuko: Yes.
Peter: Now together, meal, won’t you and here the you is of course 田淵さん (tabuchi-san) and the question mark. So literally won’t you have a meal together with me? And we translate this as, Would you like to because in English, this is the polite way to invite someone. Won’t you, would you like to, shall we. Next line, let’s take a closer look at お気に入り (okiniiri). Natsuko-san, can you just read out that sentence?
Natsuko: この辺に岡田さんのお気に入りのレストランはありますか? (Kono hen ni Okada-san no okiniiri no resutoran wa arimasu ka?)
Peter: Okay first part we have this area.
Natsuko: この辺 (kono hen)
Peter: Marked by
Natsuko: に (ni)
Peter: As it deals with location. This is followed by
Natsuko: 岡田さん (okada-san)
Peter: The person 田淵さん (tabuchi-san) is talking to. Followed by
Natsuko: の (no)
Peter: So we have a possessive. Mr. Okada we have that possessive S there.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: Followed by
Natsuko: お気に入り (okiniiri)
Peter: Favorite. Okada’s favorite followed by
Natsuko: のレストラン (no resutoran)
Peter: So お気に入り (okiniiri) Favorite restaurant. Okada’s favorite restaurant. Then this is all marked by
Natsuko: は (wa)
Peter: And followed by
Natsuko: ありますか (arimasu ka)
Peter: So literally this area Okada’s favorite restaurant is there but when we translate, do you have because ありますか (arimasu ka) can also mean to have. ある (aru) literally means to exist for inanimate things but it can also mean to have. So we translate this as do you have a favorite restaurant around here? Okay let’s jump down to the fifth line where we are talking about Italian food. And Natsuko-san, help us out here with this katakana because katakana is used with foreign loan words and when talking about Italian food, French food, lots of different cuisines, we have a lot of loanwords and a lot of katakana. So Natsuko-san, walk us through this. First we have
Natsuko: ナポリタン (naporitan)
Peter: Neapolitan
Natsuko: I heard that this is a Japanese original.
Peter: That there is no such dish in Italy.
Natsuko: Yeah no such dish in – yeah in Italy. They won’t eat such a Spaghetti there.
Peter: Okay so tell us about this Spaghetti. What’s in this Spaghetti?
Natsuko: It's a catch up play word isn’t it?
Peter: Catch up play word?
Natsuko: Yeah and it includes Ham and pepper and I think Onion too or Mushroom.
Peter: Yeah with a tomato bay sauce.
Natsuko: The sauce – well ketchup actually. Not Tomato sauce.
Peter: Oh Natsuko. Does your explanation do the dish justice? Do you like the dish?
Natsuko: Yeah. I used to love it when I was a kid and it was really popular in Japan.
Peter: Yeah, this is a Japanese, as Natsuko said, original. Definitely worth checking out because it is almost a staple of any Italian restaurant venue.
Natsuko: Well not recently.
Peter: Yes. Good point. Yeah I think people have quoted that. It’s not an Italian original.
Natsuko: Yeah but there are people who love this dish and you can actually see them off in Coffee shops.
Peter: So part of the coffee shop menu?
Natsuko: Yeah, the lunch menu, like you know, Kariya rice.
Peter: Kariya rice.
Natsuko: Neapolitan. Yeah it comes together with curry and rice.
Peter: Yes, that's the menu it belongs on. So not on the Italian restaurant menus.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: Okay next we have.
Natsuko: ミートソース (mītosōsu)
Peter: And meat sauce spaghetti. Just break this down because again we want to get used to these katakana words because once your ear gets accustomed to it, you will understand thousands upon thousands of words, loanwords.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: Usually based on English. Of course, you take words from other languages but the majority are English. So one more time.
Natsuko: ミートソース (mītosōsu)
Peter: And this is tomato sauce with meat.
Natsuko: Yeah.
Peter: Then we have
Natsuko: ボンゴレ (bongore)
Peter: Natsuko-san, can you take this? I don’t know.
Natsuko: That’s the sauce with shells.
Peter: Ah…
Natsuko: I don’t know the name of the shell in English アサリ (asari) It’s like a small clam.
Peter: Yeah one of our Italian listeners, call us if you are listening. Please help us out with this one. ボンゴレ (bongore). I butcher that too. All right, we are running way short on time. One more thing we wanted to cover today is when the two enter the restaurant, they are greeted by
Natsuko: いらっしゃいませ。 (Irasshaimase.)
Peter: And here 岡田さん (Okada-san) before he has asked how many people which in Japanese would be
Natsuko: 何名様ですか。 (Nanmeisama desu ka.)
Peter: He gives the amount of people in the party which is
Natsuko: 二人 (futari)
Peter: He beats them to the punch. He tells them how many people there are in the party and they go from there. And this may be the best option if your Japanese isn’t so advanced. Just tell them how many people are in your party.

Outro

Peter: Alright, that’s going to do it.
Natsuko: じゃ、また明日! (Ja, mata ashita!)

Mina-san, finding a place that's not crowded at noon here in Tokyo is a real task. Do you have any suggestions for Tabuchi-san and Okada-san for next time?

Sandy-san,

Thank you for the input! :wink:

We do have upper level lessons. If you're confident, maybe it's time to move on to

either upper beginner or lower intermediate perhaps. Good luck! :sunglasses::thumbsup:

I am sure you have already received this answer, but bongore stands for vongole, which is Italian for clams. Am enjoying your lessons. I am all over the place with the lessons since I actually studied for a year at The Japan Society in New York, then abandoned study for more than 10 years. Picked it up again with Pimsleur CDs, and now I have joined you. So I go from beginner season 1 to beginner season 2 and everything in between. I wonder if I will ever be more than a beginner! Living here in Pennsylvania does not help. But I have relatives in Tokyo Bay!


As for restaurants, Aoyama Sabatini is my one of favorites. They have been awarded the "Vera Pizza Napoletana" certificate. Enjoy!

I'm nearly 2 years into these lessons, and when to use "wa" or "ga" is still pretty confusing to me. I thought that "ga" was used with "arimasu"? Can someone please clear this up for me?

Lisaさん、

good point! :smile:

Sometimes we use honorific お to "sound better" or "sound polite" without

paying respect. This お (or ご) make the word sound more sophisticated.

Some words (like お気に入り) are rather used always with お as complete word.

No one would say これは私の気に入りです:cool:

Some words like that are already considered as normal word and お is

no longer considered as honorific お. Hope this helps! :wink:

今晩は

しつもんがあります。In the phrase お気に入り, is the お an honorific prefix? The vocabulary sample sentence 「これは私のお気に入りです。」seems odd because of the combination of 私 and an honorific. Am I misunderstanding?

When you give a gift to your friend and your friend likes it, you can say,

:oops: You're right; the romaji doesn't match exactly... thank you for letting

us know about it! We'll fix it soon!

And, as to 見る, you're right; the sentence has 見に行く which is the combination

of 見る + 行く and only み remains from the verb 見る:wink:
