本編 | Main Topic


I am Limun freezing because of the coldness.
Let’s learn Japanese leisurely.


Well, today you will learn about self introduction in Japanese. (It sounds like “the first lesson” right?)
Let’s begin.

例文 | Example

  1. はじめまして。
  2. 私の名前はらいむーんです。
  3. 出身は東京で、今は千葉に住んでいます。
  4. 趣味は映画鑑賞と言語を学ぶことです。
  5. よろしくお願いします。

解説 | Explanation

Today, I will teach you the first and the second sentences.

Sentence 1

Language is not so simple.
To begin this Japanese class, there is no Japanese phrase better than はじめまして.
It has almost no meanings. We say はじめまして just for formality when we meet at the first time.

But that kind of “formality” is really important in Japan. It makes your image more polite and natural.

Sentence 2

私(watashi) represent “I”. And 名前(namae) means “name”. So 私の名前 means “My name”….Yes, you can guess “の” means “of”. That’s right. And in order to understand this sentence, you should learn how to make easy sentence.


This is very easy and important structure when you understand Japanese.

It means “~ is …”
So for example “私は先生(sensei)です” means “I am a teacher”. And not only your status, but you can put your name in “…” part too.

Now you can understand meaning of the second sentence in example.

Part2 is here
