Daily Japanese Conversation #2.
At the restaurant

Today’s key phrase:

1.“san nin desu”三人です。 which means “three, please”
There is a counting system when we count something.
When we count people we add “nin” after the number.
In this case, “san” means three.
“Nin” is a suffix when we count people.
(If you are interested in how to count in Japanese, please check my previous video. I placed the link down below.)
Let’s learn how to count people from one to ten.
Hitori (one person)
Futari (two people)
San nin (three people)
Yo nin (four people)
Go nin (five people)
Roku nin (six people)
Shichi nin (seven people)
Hachi nin (eight people)
Ku nin (nine people)
Juu nin (ten people)

2.“kochira e douzo””kochira de douzo”
“kochira” literally means here or this way.
“e” means to.
“de”means at

“kochira e douzo” means this way, please.
”kochira de douzo”means Here’s your table.

3.“kocchi””kochira””acchi””achira”
Kocchi or kochira means here.
Acchi or achira means there.
Kocchi and acchi are casual.
Kochira and achira are bit formal.
As you listen to this conversation,
Restaurant staff used only “kochira”
Shou used “acchi” when he talked to Miu.
And he used “achira”when he talked to the staff.

4.“no houga ii”
“no houga ii” means prefer in English.
For example,
I prefer a red dress is “akai fuku no houga ii”
Akai means red.
Fuku means dress.
“ I prefer tea” in Japanese is
Ohca no houga ii.
“I prefer winter” is
“Fuyu no houga ii”
So let’s try to say “I prefer beer” in Japanese.
Beer is biiru in Japanese,

The answer is “ Biiru no houga ii”
How about “ I prefer beefsteak”
Beefsteak is steeki in Japanese.
So I prefer beefsteak is “steeki no houga ii”
If you need to say these phrases in politely,
Just add desu in the end of the sentence.
Ocha no houga ii desu
Biiru no houga iidesu
Steeki no houga iidesu
It’s quite simple, isn’t it?
