Language Lesson: I’m from Newcastle


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.
