Japanese conversation questions

[ADS] Advertisement

Have you ever tried to chat on social media with a Japanese person, but can't remember interesting questions to keep a conversation going? You may even be at an advanced level of Japanese, but if you're not practiced in conversation, you can be at a loss as to what to ask.

With that in mind, we've separated some questions for you to ask in a conversation with a native. These are introductory and common questions to ask with someone you are just meeting or intend to talk to.

The Japanese are simplistic, they can talk about any common topic that you would find awkward talking to a person. In Brazil we already have the habit of meeting someone and asking everything about the person's life, it's not usually like that in Japan.

You should take it easy and ask calm questions and maybe even talk about bread. Answering questions can be easy, but asking them isn't so simple, especially when you're not familiar with Japanese grammar.
