If you started living in Japan and wanted to improve your Japanese level, you might have tried to change your phone’s language to Japanese.
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.
- インスタグラム = Instagram
- フォロー = Follow
- フォロワー = Follower
- フォロー中 = Following (Followers you are currently following)
- 親(した)しい友達(ともだち) = Close Friends
- 投稿(とうこう) = Posts
- いいね = like
- ストーリーズ = Stories
- 保存(ほぞん) = Saving
- おすすめ = Recommendation
I have 10,000 followers.
Only close friends can see this Instagram Stories.
Because I like the post much on recommendation, I saved it.
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.
