Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Eric: Must-Know Japanese Social Media Phrases Season 1. Lesson 4 - Sharing a Song.
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 sharing music or videos. 葉月 (Hazuki) shares a song she just heard at a party, posts a video of it, and leaves this comment:
Risa: おすすめの1曲! (Osusume no i-kkyoku!)
Eric: Meaning - "The one song to recommend!" Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

POST
Eric: Listen again to 葉月 (Hazuki)'s post.
Risa: おすすめの1曲! (Osusume no i-kkyoku!)
Eric: "The one song to recommend!"
Risa: (SLOW) おすすめの1曲! (Osusume no i-kkyoku!) (Regular) おすすめの1曲! (Osusume no i-kkyoku!)
Eric: Let's break this down. First is an expression meaning "__ to recommend."
Risa: おすすめの (Osusume no __)
Eric: Among Japanese people, it is pretty common to share something you like or recommend on social media. You can use this phrase before the name of something you want to recommend in a post. Listen again- "__ to recommend" is...
Risa: (SLOW) おすすめの (Osusume no __) (REGULAR) おすすめの (Osusume no __)
Eric: Then comes the phrase - "one song."
Risa: 1曲 (i-kkyoku)
Eric: In Japanese, there are various types of counters you have to add after numbers. This counter is only one of them and is used to count "songs". Listen again- "one song" is...
Risa: (SLOW) 1曲 (i-kkyoku) (REGULAR) 1曲 (i-kkyoku)
Eric: All together, "The one song to recommend!"
Risa: おすすめの1曲! (Osusume no i-kkyoku!)

Eric: Her high school friend, 愛美 (Manami), uses an expression meaning - "Wow, how nostalgic."
