Japanese Words For the Day: Bugs and "How Are You?"


Before we get into bugs, some people have been asking for me to put some sentences. I'm not exactly good at my grammar just yet so let's just keep it to some basic phrases. Now "How are you?" is pretty simple. I'm also going to write down how it sounds since Romaji is not always spelled like it sounds. 

Genki desu ka?

(GENKEE DESS KA)

To respond all you need to say is 

Genki desu. 

(GENKEE DESS)

Which means "I'm fine".



Dragonfly is Tonbo


Fly is Hae


Caterpillar is Kemushi


Bee is Hachi


Bugs in general are Mushi
