VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese: Don’t take any chances

Remember this phrase in the case of an emergency – “Kiken wo okasanaide”

We’ve been hit pretty hard by typhoon Maysak and in a time like this, I have one thing to say to you: don’t take any chances!

“Kiken wo okasanaide,” which means, “Don’t take any chances.” 

Repeat after me.

“Kiken wo okasanaide.”

 (“Kiken” – danger “Okasanai” – don’t commit)

You can also say “Kiken wo okasanaide kudasai.”

Stay safe and see you in the next episode of speaking Japanese!
