Eric: Hi everyone, I'm Eric.

Eric: Meaning - "Broke my leg during the practice... It hurts." Listen to a reading of the post and the comments that follow.

Risa: 練習中に骨折。。。 (Renshū-chū ni kossetsu... )

Eric: Then comes the phrase - "It hurts..."
Risa: 痛い。 (Itai.)
Eric: This is a must-know phrase for when you go to a dentist or any clinic in Japan. When something hurts, say this phrase out loud! Listen again- "It hurts." is...
Risa: (SLOW) 痛い。 (Itai.) (REGULAR) 痛い。 (Itai.)
Eric: All together, "Broke my leg during the practice... It hurts."
Risa: 練習中に骨折。。。痛い。 (Renshū-chū ni kossetsu... Itai.)
