Ask me if you don't understand...

Postby street fighter » Sun 08.07.2005 12:03 pm

hi, can anyone tell me how to say, "talk to me or ask me if there is a word that you don't understand?"I have thought of a couple ways to say it, but none feel right. Im having trouble with the double verbs and don't know how to say it.
Thanks:D

分からない単語があったら聞いてね。
わからないたんごがあったらきいてね。
Wakaranai tango ga attara kiite ne.

If you'd like to say more formally;
分からない単語がありましたら、お聞き下さい。
わからないたんごがありましたら、おききください。
Wakaranai tango ga ari mashitara, okiki kudasai.

In this case, 聞く means "to ask".
"talk to me or" is unnecessary in Japanese sentence.

以上。:)

I just meant I could say, talk to me(OR) I could say ask me. I didn't mean both. Thanks alot, It helped out alot. I didn't even know you could say wakaranai at the begining of a sentance like that.
Thanks again laorenz.;):D
