There are many words that were challenging for me to remember.
Truthfully, I still cannot remember many Japanese words, but that's OK!
Practice makes perfect. Here are my most forgettable words!
One of the first words that I could not remember was 中盛.
In Japan, sometimes I wanted to eat a beef bowl.
The nearest beef bowl restaurant to my apartment was すきや.
I often ordered the same meal... Cheese Gyudon!
I could not read 中盛, but I know I wanted the medium size.
I would use my finger and point at the menu. "kore kudasai
" I said.
I was so embarrassed! I eventually learned how to say it, but it took me about 6 or 7 visits to my local すきや. The staff new my face and helped me. How kind of them! ??
I can almost never remember this word still today.
In English, this word is politician
but I always forget.
(As a special hint, Americans do not use the word statesman
. We almost always use politician.
I don't know why this word is difficult for me to remember! I am frustrated by this word.
I am also frustrated by some politicians, so maybe that's the reason?
3. 洗濯 + 洗濯機Laundry
and Washing Machine
are words that are super challenging for me to remember.
Sometimes, if I do remember them, I confuse the two words.
In English, you can "Do laundry." You cannot "do a washing machine."
Maybe because they both have 洗濯?
Do you have that problem in Japanese?
I don't remember the last word...Hmm....
Maybe I still don't remember it!
What words do you sometimes forget? What words in English have taken you a long time to remember?
I am interested in your answer. Please comment!
Thank you for reading!
