Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Must-Know Japanese Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 19 - Just Relaxing.
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 relaxing. 守 (Mamoru) relaxes at a beautiful place, posts an image of it, and leaves this comment:
Risa: 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。最高! (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru. Saikō!)
Eric: Meaning - "The sound of the waves, the blue sea and the cold cocktails. The best!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Eric: Listen again to 守 (Mamoru)'s post.
Risa: 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。最高! (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru. Saikō!)
Eric: "The sound of the waves, the blue sea and the cold cocktails. The best!"
Risa: (SLOW) 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。最高! (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru. Saikō!) (Regular) 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。最高! (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru. Saikō!)
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "The sound of the waves, the blue sea and the cold cocktails..."
Risa: 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。 (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru.)
Eric: This is a slightly poetic way to describe the situation where the key factors are paralleled in short words. This expression method is often used in advertisements as well. It's simple and easy to catch people's attention. Listen again- "The sound of the waves, the blue sea and the cold cocktails." is...
Risa: (SLOW) 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。 (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru.) (REGULAR) 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。 (Nami no oto, aoi umi, tsumetai kakuteru.)
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "The best!"
Risa: 最高! (Saikō!)
Eric: It literally means "the best" and Japanese people often use this expression on social media to emphasize something is great. Listen again- "The best!" is...
Risa: (SLOW) 最高! (Saikō!) (REGULAR) 最高! (Saikō!)
Eric: All together, "The sound of the waves, the blue sea, and the cold cocktails. The best!"
Risa: 波の音、青い海、冷たいカクテル。最高! (Umi de nonbiri. Saikō!)
