Today’s Japanese word :’ぜひ’

07/21/2021

Hello. Today’s Japanese word is zehi”.

We have all made requests or expressed our wishes to others. You can use “zehi” for emphasis.

Example:

1.ぜひ、今度うちへあそびに来てください!

  By all means, please come to my house!

2.A:  コンサートのチケットが2枚あります。一緒に行きませんか。

            I have two concert tickets. Shall we go together?          

     B:  はい、ぜひ一緒に行きたいです。  

    Yes, I would really love to go together!

 

“zehi” means “by all means” or “really”.

Please use “zehi” with “〜してください” and “〜たいです”.

 

In very casual situations, you can use “zehi” by itself.

Example:

    A: 昼ごはんでも食べに行かない?                        

     Would you like to go for lunch now?

      B: ぜひ!                                   

     I’d like to!
