VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Shall I wash the dishes?

Sharing work matters a lot at home as well as at the office. Next time you dine at home, try this phrase:

“Watashi ga osara wo arai masho ka?” which means, “Shall I wash the dishes?”

Repeat after me.

“Watashi ga osara wo arai masho ka?”
(“Watashi” – I, “Osara” – dish, “Arai/Arau” – wash, Masho-ka – “shall?” )

Let’s share household chores and help each other at home!

See you in the next episode of Speakin’ Japanese.
