Japanese 167 - Children

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 ども. However, when referring to the children of someone that is not a familial relation, the polite さん is used instead.

Below we have included some sample sentences that should be useful in situations when children are being discussed.
