Japanese Words & Expressions
+ Lunch +I had miso ramen (Chinese noodles in soy bean paste-flavored soup) for lunch yesterday. It was a little salty, but pretty good. What did you have for lunch yesterday?
Okay, today's word is:
chuushoku (or chushoku, where the bold-faced letter is a long vowel)
Let's take a look at the "chuu" part. This sounds a lot like the English word "chew." So, it shouldn't be too hard to pronounce. Then, the pronunciation for "shoku" is "shoh-koo," but note that both vowels should be very short. Finally, say "chuushoku." You don't really have to put a stress on anywhere. Just speak flat.
If you are not getting it at all, you may wanna watch Japanese movies or anime and familiarize yourself with the sound of Japanese.
Other Japanese words for lunch include:
2) hiru-meshi (casual)
Common usage examples:
chuushoku wo toru
(have [eat] lunch)
Chuushoku no jikan desu.
(It's time for lunch.)
Ohiru-gohan wa naniga-iidesuka?
(What would you like to eat for lunch?)
Sushi ga tabetai desu.
(I'd like to have/eat sushi.)
*Replace any food you like with "sushi" when using this expression.
Ohiru-gohan wa nani wo tabetano?
(What did you eat for lunch?)
Hiru-meshi wa soba ni kagiru. (informal)
(Soba is the best food for lunch.)
