How was your long weekend?

I hope you had a great time on Victoria Day weekend!

Today’s Japanese lesson is about ‘ SHY ‘

照れる ( = tereru ) is a verb Dictionary form of  照れます ( = to be shy)

照れる also has meaning of  ‘ be flattered ‘ depending on the contents.

eg:

Student : マキ先生は本当にいい先生ですね。

maki sensei wa hontou ni ii sensei desu ne.

Maki sensei, you are a really good teacher.

Maki : え~。そうですか? 照れるな~。 ありがとう。

ee ~. soudesu ka? tereru na ~. arigatou.

Really? Do you think so? Wow, I’m flattered. Thank you.

・照れ屋 ( = tereya = shy person )

eg:

マキ先生、本当はとても照れ屋なんです。

maki sensei, hontou wa totemo tereya nandesu.

To tell you the truth, Maki sensei is very shy.

・照れくさい ( = terekusai = feel awkward )

eg: 人前で歌を歌うのは照れくさいね。

hito mae de uta o utau nowa terekusai ne.

It makes me feel awkward to sing before others.

Are you shy? Please don’t be and feel free to E-mail me. ^^ I’m willing to help you learn Japanese language!!
