LESSON 48- Sometimes

Time to learn another time word!! The word tokidoki means sometimes. (Isn't it fun to say?) Now, we don't need much more learning on that. This lesson will be mostly new vocabulary, so pay attention as Ayu and Taiji talk!
Ayu: Taiji kun, konnichi wa.
Taiji: Ayu chan, ohisashiburi desu ne.
Ayu: Hai! Kyou wa nani o shimashita ka.
Taiji: Ja, asa wa SHAWAA o abimashita.
Ayu: Sou desu ne. Mainichi SHAWAA o abimasen ka.
Taiji: Iie. Tokidoki SHAWAA o abimasu.
Ayu: Yokunai desu ne! Nanji ni okimasu ka.
Taiji: Juuji ni okimasu. Yoru no juuichiji ni nemasu. Tokidoki yasumimasu.
Ayu: Sou desu ka. Nanji ni tabemasu ka.
Taiji: Juuichiji ni asagohan o tabemasu. Niji han ni hirugohan o tabemasu. Rokuji ni bangohan o tabemasu.
Ayu: Omoshiroi ne!
Taiji: Sou desu. Juuniji ni shigoto ni tsukimasu.
Ayu: Asobimasu ka.
Taiji: Iie. Niwa ga arimasen.
Ayu: Sou desu ne. Tokidoki MAKUDONARUDO de tabemasu. Oishii ne.
Taiji: Hai. HANBAAGAA ga suki desu. SANDOITCHI mo suki desu.
Ayu: Watashi mo. JUUSU ga suki desu. Itsumo JUUSU o nomimasu.
Taiji: Mise de JUUSU o kaimasu.
Ayu: Sou desu ka. Mise ni ikimashou ka.
Taiji: Hai, ikimashou.
Now let's look at all the new vocab we learned! After exchanging greetings, Ayu asks Taiji what he did today. Taiji replies, "Well, in the morning I took a shower." SHAWAA means, obviously, shower, and abimasu means to bathe or shower. Ayu inquires, "Don't you take a shower everyday?" Taiji replies, "No. Sometimes I take showers." Ayu says, "That's not good! What time do you wake up?" Okimasu means to wake up. Taiji replies that he wakes up at 10 and goes to sleep at 11 at night. He continues to say he sometimes rests. Nemasu means to lie down or go to sleep, and yasumimasu means to rest. Ayu asks what time he eats (tabemasu means to eat) and he replies< "I eat breakfast at 11. I eat lunch at 2:30. I eat dinner at 6." Asagohan is breakfast, hirugohan is lunch, and bangohan is dinner. Ayu replies that it is interesting and Taiji continues to say "I arrive at work at 12." Tsukimasu is to arrive. Ayu asks if he ever plays. Asobimasu means to play, but not meaning sports. Taiji replies that he can't because he doesn't have a niwa, or garden. Ayu says "Sometimes I eat at McDonalds. It's tasty." MAKUDONARUDO is McDonalds (what a mouthful!) and oishii is tasty. Taiji replies, "Yes. I like hamburgers. I also like sandwiches." HANBAAGAA is hamburger and SANDOITCHI is sandwich. Ayu says, "Me too. I like juice. I always drink juice." JUUSU is juice and nomimasu is to drink. Taiji says he buys juice in a store. Kaimasu is to buy. Ayu then suggests, "Shall we go to the store?" Taiji says, "Yes, let's go."
