How to answer the questions?

This is a slightly more delicate subject, it is necessary to have a basic knowledge of Japanese vocabulary. If the answer is simply a word, just say it and sometimes add “desu [です]” to make it more formal.

If the answer is a verb, remember to spell it correctly. We recommend reading our article with Japanese conversion phrases. This article will help you have an even better conversation.

If you are a Japanese language novice, or want to know more basic words and phrases, we recommend that you read other articles:
