[This example comes in quite handy for checking to see if your listener is listening. if your listener shows no reaction, there is a good chance he's not listening.]

  • watashi - I; me [when the は wa (topic particle) follows, it can only be translated as "I" because は wa is the main topic and never a direct object]
  • アメリカ人 amerika jin - American [Just like 宇宙人 uchuu jin, simply add a 人 jin to a country to get the country's people. Click here for more on this]
  • ですけど desu kedo - but [saying this is true, but...]
  • imouto - younger sister [older sister is 姉 ane]
