VIDEO: Speakin' Japanese: It's very funny!

You may have noticed Japanese often say “Ukemasu ne” in their conversation both in person and on the phone. That means It’s very funny. This is an informal expression, but we use it very frequently in our daily conversation. 

Today’s Japanese phrase: “Ukemasu ne!” = It's very funny!  ("uke" = having a great popularity, ".. masu ne" = it is ... isn't it)


It’s very simple but very useful word. Give it a try! Stay safe and we’ll see you in the next Speakin’ Japanese video!
