LESSON 11- Goodbye and Thank You

There are three different ways you can say goodbye: Sayonara, Sayounara, and Ja mata. Sayanora is used when you feel you won't see the other person for a long period of time. You shouldn't use it on family members unless you don't plan on seeing them again. Sayounara is used to your school principal or on a formal occasion. Ja mata is just like us saying "See you later". Ja means "Well then" or "In that case" and mata means "again".
You already know that Arigatou gozaimasu is a way to say thank you. Doumo is the more informal way of saying "Thanks", more used between friends.
