VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Quiet time

Every now and then, we need some time off, away from our smartphones and without being sucked into the news cycle.

If you think you need some space to breathe, try this phrase:

“Dokoka shizukana basho-ye ikimasho,” which means: “let’s go somewhere quiet.”         

(“Dokoka” – somewhere, “shizukana” – quiet, “basho” – place, “ye” – to, “ikimasho” – let’s go)

Ok, stay safe and relax! And, see you all in the next episode of Speakin’ Japanese!
