*1 This may be a kind of literary/writing expressionand its seldom used in conversation. But never is unnatural. *2 Arigato and Arigato gozaimasu. Theres no big difference between them, Arigato gozaimasuis more polite. *3 (Anata ga inakute) Samishi katta desu : Abbreviated Anata ga inakute. *4 Usually we just say Excuse me/ Sumimasen, and Can you help meis included in this Sumimasen. *5 ...san is a very normal way. Add after both first and family name like Koizumi san or Jyunichiro san. *6 This sentence can directly be Oai dekite ureshii desu. If you meet person for the first time, you can say Hajimemashite. *7 Direct translation is Kouun wo inorimasu. *8 Christmas is not really celebrated by the Japanese and therefore Merry Christmas is not a common greeting you would hear. *9 This is one of the Japanese language mysteries, I love you is expressed in progressive aspect like I am loving you. But basically its seldom used. Instead, Daisuki desu is used casually. I hope the content of this page was useful to you, and that you learned some Japanese phrases, expressions and words.
