How to get help in Japanese
I will show you three simple steps.
First: Write an action you want to achieve.
Example: going to Shibuya.
Shibuya ni ikimasu.
Second: Delete “ます masu” and add “たいです tai desu.”
This sentence means “I want to (verb).”
Shibuya ni iki
masu tai desu.
I want to go to Shibuya.
This sentence works to tell Japanese people what you want to do, but it sounds childish.
So, let’s go one more step.
Third: Change the “たいです tai desu” part to “たいんですが…, tain desu ga…”
This part indicates you want to do something and you need some help.
Shibuya ni ikitain desu ga….
I want to go to Shibuya… (Could you help me?)
Now you can ask for help!
For example, if you need help writing a specific kanji character,
say like this!
この かんじを かきたいんですが…。
Kono kanji wo kakitain desu ga….
I want to write this kanji (could you help?)
Follow these three steps and get help from kind Japanese people.
It’s VERY simple!😆
