VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese language lesson: Open the window

If your room needs a good airing, try this phrase – “Mado wo akemashou.”
Getting good ventilation in a room is one of the recommendations to combat the coronavirus from health experts.
So, if your room is in the need of a good airing, try the phrase “Mado wo akemashou,” which means “Let’s open the window.”
Let’s take fresh air and refresh ourselves. 

“Mado wo akemashou” = Let’s open the window.
(“mado” – window, “Akemashou” – Let’s open

Repeat after me: Mado wo akemashou.
Stay safe and we’ll see you in the next episode of Speakin’ Japanese!
