Do you want to learn Japanese phrases fast? In the series Japanese Fast Phrases, that's exactly what you get! These are short lessons designed so you can learn fun Japanese phrases quickly.
An onomatopoeia is a word that describes a sound and the Japanese language has lots of these words, many more than English. Do you make a sound when you fix your gaze on someone? Do looks have sounds? Can you hear the difference between a withering stare and a coquettish glance over the shoulder? You can in Japanese. In Japanese, some of the words that refer to looking at someone are onomatopoeic. Should you use chirachira or jirojiro to talk about that pretty girl in the store? Used properly, one can mean glancing repeatedly at someone and the other a very disapproving glare! Why take the risk and guess when the right Japanese words are right here!
