For all the Japanese language learners out there, here are a few articles to help — or inspire — you in your quest:

  • Would you be completely lost if you were asked to give a speech at a Japanese wedding? Well, you’re in luck. Haruka Murayama breaks down how to give a toast, a speech — and hand over that hefty ¥30,000 to the bride and groom properly (if reluctantly).
  • Wake up to the many ways of using wake with the help of Tadasu Takahashi’s latest Bilingual column, where he furnishes readers with off-the-shelf phrases you can drop into moan-fests about the Olympics or the sluggish vaccine rollout.
