Dmitry Posted February 18, 2014 Report Share Posted February 18, 2014 It is very helpful to learn foreign language by memorizing words that surround you. Therefore, today I would like to give some words that concern kitchen and living room vocabulary. So, let`s start with the names of pots and pans that you can find in your kitchen.キッチン [kicchin] - Kitchen電子レンジ [denshirenzi] - microwaveワイングラス [waingurasu] - wineコーヒーカップ [kouhiikappu] - coffee cup湯飲み（茶わん）[yuunomi (chyawan)] - tea cup (you also may use just 茶わん to say 'tea cup')食器 [syokki] - dishスツール [sutuuru] - stool冷蔵庫 [reizouko] - refrigeratorガスレンジ/ガスコンロ [gasurenzi/gasukonro] - gas stoveグラスのコップ [gurasu no koppu] - glass (or just グラス)レバー [rebaa] - lever流し [nagashi] - sinkLiving room:リビング/居間 [ribingu/ima] - living room (both words can be used)窓ガラス [madogarasu] - window glass雨戸 [amado] - shutter網戸 [amido] - screen (door)天井 [tenzyou] - ceiling床 [yuka] - floorじゅうたん/カーペット [zyuutan/kaapetto] - carpet長いす/ソファー [nagaisu/sofaa] - sofaヒーター [hiitaa] - heaterエアコン [eakon] - air conditionerコンセント [konsento] - electrical outletコード [koudo] - cordAnd couple verbs:上げる [ageru] - to lift: レバーを上げる [reba-woageru] - to turn up the lever電源 [dengen] - power supply: 電源を入れる [dengen wo ireru] - to plug in (to turn on the switch); 電源をきる [dengen wo ireru] - to unplug As you can see the most of the words are loan words. So, it`s going to be easy to memorize them. My advice, if you want to deepen your vocabulary skills you may put stickers with the name of the furniture around your apartment, so that every time you look around your apartment you could see the name of the furniture in Japanese. Good luck with learning Japanese language! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
