In what I hope will be a the first of many features here on Geordie-Japan here we have a simple lesson in Japanese specific to toon!
Picture this, you’re walking down Northumberland Street when suddenly a gentlemen stops you and says;
“Goshusshin wa doko desuka?” (Where do you come from?)
[Go-shu-sshin wa do-ko des-ka]
You can reply;
“Watashi wa Nyuukassuru kara desu” (I’m from Newcastle)
[Wa-ta-shi wa Nyuu-kass-uru ka-ra des]
There you go, now enjoy the awkward silence when you realise you can’t communicate past this point.
