Tonight in Japanese class we were given two pages worth of adjectives. This is something I have been lacking - not just vocab generally, but especially adjectives. So I decided to pick one as this week's Japanese Word of the Week, and at random I have pulled out muzukashii from the list.
muzukashii = difficult, hard
Nihon-go wa muzukashii desu. The Japanese language is difficult.
To which the reply is, of course:
Iie, Nihon-go wa muzukashiku arimasen. Benkyō shite. Gambatte kudasai!
And all together now: "Hai, gambarimasu!"*
* Translation: No, the Japanese language is not difficult. Study. Please do your best! ...Yes, I will do my best!
