When I went to the U.S., I really wanted to improve my English level, so I actually changed the main language to English on my phone and laptop. It helped me a lot to learn practical English.

Once you open the Instagram, you will see a bunch of words that you are not familiar with.

Here, I prepare the top10 basic Instagram Japanese words.
Most words are Katakana, so you will understand them easily.

  1. インスタグラム = Instagram
  2. フォロー = Follow
  3. フォロワー = Follower
  4. フォロー中 = Following (Followers you are currently following)
  5. 親(した)しい友達(ともだち) = Close Friends
  6. 投稿(とうこう) = Posts
  7. いいね = like
  8. ストーリーズ = Stories
  9. 保存(ほぞん) = Saving
  10. おすすめ = Recommendation

EXAMPLE SENTENCES

・私(わたし)はフォロワーが1万人(まんにん)います。
I have 10,000 followers.

・このストーリーズは親しい友達だけ見る事ができる。
Only close friends can see this Instagram Stories.

・おすすめに出(で)てきた投稿(とうこう)が気(き)に入(い)ったので保存(ほぞん)した。
Because I like the post much on recommendation, I saved it.

・この投稿(とうこう)を作(つく)るのを頑張(がんば)ったから、いいねを沢山(たくさん)欲(ほ)しい
I want a lot of likes as I worked hard to make this post.

Most of them are Katakana. So, it’s easy for English speakers to understand them.

Be careful of these three words.

 

1, 親(した)しい友達(ともだち) = Close Friends

2, 投稿(とうこう) = Posts

3, 保存(ほぞん) = Saving

 

We don’t say Katakana for these words.
