In this lesson we will build on the family vocabulary we learned previously so that we can ask questions or talk about our own or someone else's children.
The Japanese word for child or children is 子供.
However, when referring to the children of someone that is not a familial relation, the polite お子さん is used instead.
Below we have included some sample sentences that should be useful in situations when children are being discussed.
Do you have children?
あなたは子供がいますか？ anata ha kodomo ga imasu ka?
How old is your child?
お子さんは何歳ですか？ okosan ha nansai desu ka?
My children love Pokemon.
私の子供はポケモンが大好きです。 watasi no kodomo ha pokemon ga daisuki desu.
My father has two daughters.
父は娘二人がいます。 titi ha musume hutari ga imasu.
Do our children go to the same school?
私たちの子供は同じ学校に通っていますか？ watasitati no kodomo ha onazi gakkou ni kayotte imasu ka?
