Lesson Transcript

Welcome to Can-Do Japanese by JapanesePod101.com.
みなさん、こんにちは。かのうかなです。
"Hi everyone! I'm Kana Kano."
In this lesson, you’ll learn how to introduce yourself in Japanese.
This is Mark Lee, and he’s on a plane to Japan.
Ken Kobayashi, a passenger sitting next to him, introduces himself by saying,
"Nice to meet you. I’m Kobayashi. Pleased to meet you."
こばやし けん: はじめまして。わたしは こばやしです。よろしく おねがいします。
(Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Kobayashi desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.)
Listen to the conversation, and focus on Mark's response.
Ready?
こばやし けん: はじめまして。わたしは こばやしです。よろしく おねがいします。
(Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Kobayashi desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.)
リー マーク: はじめまして。わたしは リー マークです。よろしく おねがいします。
(Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Rī Māku desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.)
Once more with the English translation.
こばやし けん: はじめまして。わたしは こばやしです。よろしく おねがいします。
(Hajimemashite. Watashi wa Kobayashi desu. Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.)
Ken Kobayashi: "Nice to meet you. I’m Kobayashi. Pleased to meet you."
リー マーク: はじめまして。わたしは リー マークです。よろしく おねがいします。

Thank you so much for your comment😄

It's not impolite or anything, but people might get confused which is your first name and surname😅


Please let us know if you have any questions :)

Since I am a gaijin, is it impolite or inappropriate for me to introduce myself with my first name first and surname second?

Hi Jae042,


Thank you for posting.

It's a wordplay that means Can Do. 😄


We hope you liked the lesson!

Cheers,

アイーダさん、こんにちは!

こちらこそよろしくお願いします😄

It doesn't sound redundant to us.

The basic meaning of ‘yoroshiku’ is ‘thank you in advance’.

You can learn よろしくお願いします in this lesson.

はじめまして。 私はアイーダです。よろしくお願いします。


I am curious. Why do they say "Nice to meet you" and then "Pleased to meet you"? Is it not seen as redundant in Japanese?
