Japanese greetings -for beginner-

Today's lesson is Japanese greeting!

U know the respect is very important for Japanese. Greeting is one of them. I think most Japanese language school teaches only formal sentence ,but sometimes I'll teach casual sentence and some slangs.


おはようございます/おはよう - good morning
(ohayougozaimasu / ohayou)

こんにちは - good afternoon

こんばんは - good evening

いってきます - I'm leaving

おかえりなさい/おかえり - welcome back
(okaerinasai / okaeri)

ありがとうございます/ありがとう - thank u
(arigatougozaimasu / arigatou)

どういたしまして - u r welcome

はじめまして - nice to meet u

[someone invite u over]

おじゃまします - *when u enter to

おじゃましました - *when leaving from house

いただきます - thanx for making

ごちそうさまでした - all dishes tastes good! thank u

[to response]
