Japanese Learning, Day 4

1. サンキュー (SANKYU-)

The meaning is Thank You. This word is borrowed from English, and the pronunciation is almost the same but just make it sound more Japanese-ish. The way you use it is the same as the normal thank you but usually young people use it.

2. いいえ、いいえ (IIE,IIE)

Means you're welcome. This is the way to make sure that you don't sound arrogant when someone says thank you to you. And once again, this is not for formal use, so please be caution about that.

the way you pronounce the first I is like how you pronounce E, and the IE is pronounce as YE.

So that's it. even though this is kinda short but I hope you learn something. If you have any questions or any things you would like me to write about, feel free to leave a comment below.Peace and Bye :)
