Japanese Words & Expressions


+ Cold (Weather) +

Now you know the meaning of atsui, right? If you don't, please review the page for the word Hot. This time, you will learn the opposite of atsui.

samui
さむい
寒い

Meaning:

cold; chilly

Pronunciation:

You know how to pronounce samurai (sa-mu-ra-i), don't you? Then, just skip the "ra" and say, "sa-mu-i." It's simple, isn't it? Don't worry about where to put a stress and such. This is Japanese, not English. What I am trying to say is, don't pronounce like "SA-mu-i," "sa-MU-i," or "sa-mu-I," or you may sound funny to Japanese people.

Tips:

You may want to learn these expressions:

Kyou (Kyo) wa samui. きょうはさむい。
今日は寒い。
(It's cold today.)

Kyou (Kyo) wa totemo samui desu.
きょうはとてもさむいです。
今日はとても寒いです。
(It's very cold today.)

As you can guess, "totemo" means very. If you would like to speak politely, add "desu" to the end like the second sentense.
