Learn Japanese Answer Index

If you've thoroughly read and understood these lessons, you're probably ready for a little review. Just reading a lesson isn't enough. When you know something "cold", you can without pause or hesitation from memory recall it with greasy fast speed.

If you can't, rest assured you don't know it. And so it's a good idea to review it. If you haven't already read our section on tips for learning Japanese, you might want to look over our Study tips page for piles of helpful advice on how to study.

Lastly these answers are direct translations, keep in mind that the subject of the sentence (watashi, kanojo etc. are often omitted. So if someone who didn't know you were to ask you if you're a teacher, it would be asked as "sensei desu ka" and USUALLY NOT as "anata wa sensei desu ka."

Also keep in mind that the use of "desu" and other polite styles are dependent upon the relationship you have with the person you're speaking with. So what does this mean? It means the answers will vary.
