Good or Bad In Japanese | Learn Japanese With Me
Practice and learn Japanese with me in small easy steps as I share tips from my studies. This most recent Japanese tip I learned allows us to say you are good at or you are not good at in Japanese. See phrases below.
My Japanese Study Notes:
To be good at or skilled at…
- jouzu desu | じょうずです
To not be good at or skilled at…
- jouzu ja arimasen | じょうずじゃありません
To be good at the Japanese language.
nihongo ga jouzu desu | 日本語がじょうずです
To not be good at the Japanese language.
- nihongo ga jouzu ja arimasen | 日本語がじょうずじゃありません
How To Practice:
- When you see someone good or not good at something… Notify or compliment them using either (jouzu desu) or (jouzu ja arimasen).
- Compliment a Japanese speaker by saying “nihongo ga jouzu desune” adding the ne ender to imply you are good aren’t you!
- When someone asks you if you can speak Japanese, you can state “mada, nihongo ga jouzu ja arimasen”. Letting them know you are not good at Japanese… YET! (mada).
