Description: In our first lesson we introduce you to the word "sensei" which is used for people in many occupations, including our teachers, Akai-sensei and Kurahara-sensei! You don't have to be a teacher to be a sensei. Lawyers, doctors and even manga artists are often called sensei too. 

In today's lesson we discuss how to introduce yourself in a variety of situations. Whether with your friends, coworkers, acquaintances, guests or superiors, you'll be able to use these phrases, so try them out!

Using the incorrect politeness level is not the end of the world, but having the knowledge of which level to use and when to use it will help you out on your road to mastering Japanese!

We would like to hear from you! Please feel free to ask questions and comment on what you'd like to learn. We'll be creating Q+A lessons in the future!

yoroshiku/yoroshiku onegaishimasu/yoroshiku onegaiitashimasu -- The meaning of this expression varies depending on the situation and is one of the more difficult expressions to translate. Possible variations include: Let's be friends/I look forward to getting to know you/I look forward to working with you, etc.

As we explained in the last episode, there are 3 levels of politeness in Japanese; Casual, Polite and Respectful. Today, I would like to show you how to introduce yourself using the 3 levels.

Here is the Polite level. You can use this in most general situations. Therefore if not in a formal or business situation, this level would be polite enough to use with anyone.

and finally, here is a Respectful level. You can use this in business and formal situations such as a meeting or a formal party. It is made more polite with a bow.

A. Very good! Totemo ii desu! Please practice these introductions in a variety of situations! If there's any questions, I'll be happy to answer! Shitsumon o omachi shite imasu! Dewa mata kondo!
