January 22 – Pets and Animals in Japanese

Register For the Online Japanese Event First, introduce your pet, or if you don’t have a pet, share your favorite animal, or talk about a pet you’ve had in the past. Always try and ask for more details during the event! You can use this phrase to ask why? なぜですか?(naze desu ka?) why is that? This may take some preparation but try to be as detailed as possible. Share a picture or join the event with your pet if you’d like. How old are they, when did you adopt the pet, quirks they have, what foods they like to eat. If you don’t have a pet, talk about your favorite animal and why that animal is your favorite. For those with pets: ペットを紹介してください。- Petto o shoukai shite kudasai. – Please introduce your pet. For those without pets: 一番好きな動物は何ですか? –  Ichiban suki na doubutsu wa nandesuka? – What is your favorite animal?
