Learning Japanese with Luke – Lesson 2: Peter Pen the Prostitute writes his diary
Now I know where Peter is, I have to help him write his diary. This will be useful when I walk up to some random Japanese person in the street and ask them what day of the week it is.
Kyoo wa naniyoobi desu ka?
Kyooh wah nan-yooh-bee dess kah?
What day is it today?
Nanji desu ka?
Nan-jee dess kah?
What time is it?
Kyoo wa Suiyoobi desu.
Kyooh wah soo-ee-yooh-bee dess.
Today it is Wednesday.
Ashita wa Doyoobi desu.
A-shtaah wah doh-yooh-bee dess.
Tomorrow it is Saturday.
Gogo goji han desu.
Go-go go-jee han dess.
The time is 5:30pm.
Kinoo wa nanyoobi ka oboetenain desu ka?
Kee-noo wah nan-yooh-bee kah o-boh-eh-teh-naiyn dess ka?
Can’t you remember what day it was yesterday?

It’s time you stopped being a cheapskate and bought a watch!
