Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Must-Know Japanese Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 17 - At the Local Market.
Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.
Risa: And I'm Risa.
Eric: In this lesson, you'll learn how to post and leave comments in Japanese about an unusual thing found at a local market. 守 (Mamoru) finds an unusual item at a local market, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Risa: 何だこりゃ。初めて見た。 (Nan da korya. Hajimete mita.)
Eric: Meaning - "What the hell? Never seen this before." Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Eric: Listen again to 守 (Mamoru)'s post.
Risa: 何だこりゃ。初めて見た。 (Nan da korya. Hajimete mita.)
Eric: "What the hell? Never seen this before."
Risa: (SLOW) 何だこりゃ。初めて見た。 (Nan da korya. Hajimete mita.) (Regular) 何だこりゃ。初めて見た。 (Nan da korya. Hajimete mita.)
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "What the hell?"
Risa: 何だこりゃ。 (Nan da korya.)
Eric: It's a common reaction when you see something confusing in front of you. When you find something completely new and interesting overseas, you'll probably get to use this expression a lot. Listen again- "What the hell?" is...
Risa: (SLOW) 何だこりゃ。 (Nan da korya.) (REGULAR) 何だこりゃ。 (Nan da korya.)
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "Never seen this before..."
Risa: 初めて見た。 (Hajimete mita.)
Eric: It's a simple and short expression to use when you find something you have never seen. Listen again- "Never seen this before." is...
Risa: (SLOW) 初めて見た。 (Hajimete mita.) (REGULAR) 初めて見た。 (Hajimete mita.)
Eric: All together, "What the hell? Never seen this before."
Risa: 何だこりゃ。初めて見た。 (Nan da korya. Hajimete mita.)

Risa: (SLOW) タイ限定だね。 (Tai gentei dane.) (REGULAR) タイ限定だね。 (Tai gentei dane.)
