Hello Everyone! And Good evening,

      Welcome to another Japanese 101, wherein we have another phrase that can be used when meeting new people, or specifically, clients.

For Lesson 2, we will be starting off with something that can be used in business meetings.


Watashi no meishi desu.

This is my name card/ business card.

Now, to break off the sentence into 3 parts,

Watashi no = My; Watashi which means I, is made possessive by the possession particle  No.

Meishi = Business card

Desu = The word that grammatically links the subject and predicate in the sentence; this also indicates the level of politeness you wish to convey. Desu is used in normal situations.

I read somewhere that your business card is an extension of yourself, which is a good reminder for all of us engaged in business meetings. There are numerous guides, tips on how to properly exchange business cards in Japan, which can help you in presenting yourself to a Japanese client.

That's it for today's lesson! See you next time.
