"Kawaii" means "cute". But everything in Japan seems to be cute! Use it for everything from mobile phones, to telling your friends how cute their kids are!

"Suki" means "like", and is pronounced similar to the winter sport. If you say it like a question, it means "Do you like this?". Your answer can be a "suki", meaning "Yes, I do!". Or try "karaoke, suki?" meaning "Do you like karaoke?"

"O i shi i " means "delicious". If you taste something nice, either food or drink, simply say "oishii" to give it your seal of approval! It can often be heard on TV cookery programmes!

"Su go i" simply means "cool"! When someone shows you something, they do something great or you find something particularly cool, simply say "Sugoi"! It's easy!

ENGLISH
I eat bread
 
JAPANESE
wa(i) o(eat) tabemasu(bread)
watashi(i) pan(eat) tabemasu(bread)
