Sammy: ใ‚†ใฃใใ‚Š is read as "yukkuri". The small ใค indicates a double-consonant (if we were to write the word in Roma-ji, the consonant after the small tsu would be a double-consonant, such as the kk in the above example), which is pronounced as a small break. ใ‚†ใใ‚Š is read as "yukuri", which I honestly haven't got the faintest idea of what means, if it's even a real word.

Hope this answers your question. It's going to be difficult understanding all this early on, but when you study more grammar, it will make more sense :)

Muhammad: As long as you add -san to their name, it should be fine to use given names. Of course, if you're talking to a professor or your boss, you would use their family name followed by -san, but for strangers you've met in a casual setting, such as on the plane or waiting in line at the cinema, given name + -san shouldn't cause any problems :)

Cubix452: This is all explained in more detail in another lesson, but in a nutshell, boku (ๅƒ•) is just a slightly less formal, but still polite way to refer to yourself, which is primarily used by young boys and men. However, anyone can use watashi (็ง), which is considered the most polite word to use. When in doubt, just use watashi and you'll be fine :)

Experts, please correct me if I'm wrong :)

Is it impolite in Japan to call someone by his or her given name if he or she is not close to you? Thank you!

In the video, Mark said ๅƒ•. I thought a guy should say ๅƒ• instead of ็ง?

I don't know what my name is in Japanese. And every time I look it up, it shows the month meaning. So, how would I say my name (April) in Japanese?
