Lets Learn JAPANESE (Lesson 3)

It has been more than three weeks since Lesson 2 published. For those who have been waiting for the lesson, I am truly sorry. I was very busy working last month.

This time, lets learn about describing places.

Lesson 3: Describing Places

Ms A: It has been quite some time (since the last time we met). How are you?
おひさっしぶりです。おげんきですか。
[Ohisasshiburi desu. Ogenki desu ka?]


Mr B: Yes, it has. I am fine, thank you. Were you busy at work?
そうですね。わたしはげんきです。A-さんのしごとはいそがしいですか。
[Sou desu ne. Watashi wa genki desu. A-san no shigoto wa isogashii desu ka?]


Ms A: I'm sorry, I was busy (at work). I went to China for a business meeting. Are you going somewhere?
すみませんでした。はたらくことがちょっといそがしかったです。中国(ちゅごく)へかいぎにいきました。B-さんはどこへいきますか。
[Sumimasen deshita. Hataraku koto ga chotto isogashikatta desu. Chugoku e kaigi ni ikimashita. B-san wa doko e ikimasuka?]


Mr B: I am going to that blue building (over there). (Do you know) where is the train station?
あちらのあおいビルへいきます。えきはどこですか。
[Achira no aoi biiru e ikimasu. Eki wa doko desu ka?] 


Ms A: I see. There is no train station in this building. But, you can take (board) a bus over there. 
なるほど。このビルでえきがありません。でも、そちらでバスをのれます。
[Naru hodo. Kono biiru de eki wa arimasen. Demo, sochira de basu o noremasu.] 


Mr B: Can I take a bus to that building?
あそこにバスでいけますか。
[Asoko ni basu de ikemasu ka?]


Ms A: Yes. You can take any bus to go there. Are you going on your own?
はい。どちらバスもいけますよ。B-さんはじぶんでいきますか。
[Hait. Dochira basu mo ikemasu yo. B-san wa jibun de ikimasuka?]


Mr B: I understand, thank you. I am going with my office colleagues. They are waiting for me over there.
わかりました、ありがとう。わたしはかいしゃいんいっしょうにいきます。みんなはあそこでわたしにまっています。
[Wakarimashita, arigatou. Watashi wa kaishain isshou ni ikimasu. Minna wa asoko de watashi ni matte imasu.]


Ms A: I see. See you next time.
そう。じゃー、またあいましょう。
[Sou. Jya, matta aimashou.]
