Self-Introduction in Japanese (For Engineers)

A very important note before starting.
In Japanese, the letter "de" is pronounced as "the" in "there" AND "su" is pronounced as "ss" and
So read "Desu" as "Thess"

Haajimemaashite (It is used for beginning the introduction in formal Japanese)
Watashi wa ABC desu. (I am )
Watashi wa Gijyutsushya desu. (I am an Engineer)

*Note that here "Gi" is pronounced as in the gi in the word "gift"

Watashi wa Daaigakusei desu. (I am a College Student)
Or
Watashiwa de tsutomete imaasu. (I work at )


Douzo Yoroshiku (I am glad to meet you. ...Used to End the Introduction)

Try writing your own introduction in Japanese and read it aloud 😁

@Sahithi:

Suppose you want to say. I am from India or I am an Indian : Watashi wa Indojin desu.

I am a a Japanese: Watashi wa Nihonjin desu. (Here "Nihon" means Japan and "jin" means person)
I am a a Chinese: Watashi wa Chugokujin desu.
I thought "Watashi wa Indian desu". πŸ˜€ Ok Its "Watashi wa Indojin desu".
Only a slight difference.

Oh My God, Am getting Japanese. 😁
Thanks a ton for my Guru here.

Hehe I am glad that I am able to teach something here. It's so difficult to tell about a language online.

In Japanese

Teacher (Guru) is: Sensei
Student is: Gakusei
Ya Sensei, Really Its very difficult to teach a new language online, that pronunciation and all.
Your teaching is nice. You are doing a great job .

Some easy adjectives to remember:

Ooki : Big
Sugoi : Amazing
Kawaii : Cute (this is the most commonly used exclamation in Japan)

Good work AKD, please continue with general words and sentences that are frequented in everyday usage.

I believe the quicker way to learn Japanese is to learn them from animes πŸ˜›
You get to enjoy the anime itself as well as learn the language with their correct pronunciation. πŸ˜€
