How long does it take to learn japanese if you already know 3 langues?

December 29, 2008 by admin · 9 Comments 

I really wants to learn japanese but I already speak polish, norwegian and english fluently and I wonder how long would it take to learn japanese at a good communication level so I could make a conversation with japanese people and I would know the writing part as well. Do you think that 2years of home learning + 1 year student exchange in tokio would be enought to speak fluently ?

Hmmm.. If you are very good with languages then you have a fair shot at becoming fluent yes. But maybe not in 3 years. Consider a further year student exchange and I’d think you’d be pretty close to it then.

Good luck

How to Say Happy in Japanese

How To Say Happy In Japanese

Telling someone that you’re happy and that you’re having in Japanese can be very useful and motivating for someone else. For example, if you’re on a date and you want to continue seeing the other person, you will tell him / her that you enjoy the date. But how do you express hapiness, joy or pleasure in Japanese?

There are many Japanese words that can accomplish this task but let’s start with the basic Japanese word ureshii. Ureshii is perhaps the most common and effective word for express your happiness. When you’re happy, you can just shout out ureshii!

Watashi no tame ni, kono bentou wo tsukute kureta yo ne. Ureshii yo!
You made this lunch box for me. I’m so happy!

Kanojo wa ureshii kao wo shiteiru.
She’s wearing a happy face. (She’s happy).

There are many ways you can use the Japanese verb ureshii. You can turn it into an adverb. To turn a Japanese adjective into an adverb, you need to omit the ending -i and replace it with -ku.

Ore wa kanojo no kao wo miru dake de, nanka ureshiku narimasu.
Just by looking at her face, I become happy.

Kare wa ureshiku sono uta wo utaimashita.
He sang that song happily.

See how useful the simple Japanese adjective ureshii can do? Let’s look the second Japanese adjective tanoshii which means enjoyable and fun. Tanoshii is usually used when you want to express fun or enjoyment. Since it’s a Japanese adjective, you would use tanoshii the same way as ureshii.

Machi de burabura suru no ga sonna ni tanoshii desu ka?
Is wandering aimless on the street that enjoyable?

Dewa okyakusama, yukkuri tanoshinde kudasai.
Dear customers, please enjoy yourself.

Watashi wa tada kimi to tanoshii toki wo sugoshitai dake desu.
I only wanted to have a great time with you.
