How to get help in Japanese

ย 

I will show you three simple steps.

ย 

First: Write an action you want to achieve.

ย 

Example: going to Shibuya.

ใ—ใถใ‚„ใซใ€€ใ„ใใพใ™ใ€‚

Shibuya ni ikimasu.

ย 

Second: Delete “ใพใ™ masu” and add “ใŸใ„ใงใ™ tai desu.”

This sentence means “I want to (verb).”

ย 

ใ—ใถใ‚„ใซใ€€ใ„ใใพใ™ใŸใ„ใงใ™ใ€‚

Shibuya ni ikimasu tai desu.

I want to go to Shibuya.

ย 

This sentence works to tell Japanese people what you want to do, but it sounds childish.

ย 

So, let’s go one more step.

ย 

Third: Change the “ใŸใ„ใงใ™ tai desu” part to “ใŸใ„ใ‚“ใงใ™ใŒ…, tain desu ga…”

This part indicates you want to do something and you need some help.

ย 

ใ—ใถใ‚„ใซใ€€ใ„ใใŸใ„ใ‚“ใงใ™ใŒโ€ฆใ€‚

Shibuya ni ikitain desu ga….

I want to go to Shibuya… (Could you help me?)

ย 

Now you can ask for help!

ย 

For example, if you need help writing a specific kanji character,ย 

say like this!

ย 

ใ“ใฎใ€€ใ‹ใ‚“ใ˜ใ‚’ใ€€ใ‹ใใŸใ„ใ‚“ใงใ™ใŒโ€ฆใ€‚

Kono kanji wo kakitain desu ga….

I want to write this kanji (could you help?)

ย 

Follow these three steps and get help from kind Japanese people.

It’s VERY simple!๐Ÿ˜†

ย 

Happy learning!
