LESSON 68- He said, "I'm sorry"
For this topic, we will learn a new verb and a new form to go with it-- iimasu, which means to say and can be used with dialogue. For example, Kare wa "Gomen nasai" to iimashita would be he said, "I'm sorry". It is a relatively easy concept and you can put whatever you desire into the quotations.
Let's learn some new vocabulary while we apply this new sentence. Now we are going to have Miyuu calling her mother.

Let's get into the translation. Miyuu calls up her mother and she asks, "Are you in Yuuto's house?" Miyuu replies, "Yes.. this house is spacious!" Her mother says really and Miyuu continues, "On the second floor there are many bedrooms. On the first floor, there is a living room, kitchen, and a bathroom." Her mom asks if it is pretty and Miyuu replies it is very pretty. Her mother asks what she did and Miyuu replies, "Well... yesterday we arrived at the house and got out of the car. Yuuto said 'This is my house!' We entered and went to the stairway. My room is on the second floor." Her mother asks if her room was nice and Miyuu replies, "Yes. I have a big bed. Yuuto said, 'Breakfast is at 9:30. Please wake up early!' He left my room. I went to the bathroom, undressed, and entered the bath. It was warm. Then I went to sleep." Her mother asks if she was tired and Miyuu says, "Yes, I was very tired. The next morning I ate breakfast with Yuuto's family. We ate salad, eggs, and toast. It was delicious! Yuuto's mother said, 'Do you like it?' I said, 'Yes! I really like it.'" Her mother says salad sounds good. Miyuu replies, "Afterwards, I watched the news on the TV with Yuuto. But, the person was talking quickly! I didn't understand at all." Her mother comments that is not good. Miyuu continues, "Yes. Then Yuuto said, 'Do you want to go shopping?' I said, 'Yes!'" Her mother asked if she went but she says, "No... I forgot to take my money. I searched for it, but it was not there." Her mother says, "Really? That's bad!" Miyuu continues, "Yuuto said, 'You did not remember money? That's all right! Then we won't go.'" Mother comments that Yuuto is a nice boy and Miyuu agrees. She continues to say, "Then we watched more TV and drank coffee. We put in sugar and milk. It was delicious." Her mother asks if it was fun, and when Miyuu says yes, she says, "I'm relieved."
