Japanese is a fantastic language. Why do I say so? Because there are so many meanings to a word. You will find these words 便利 benri convenient. I think I have been using these words more than 100 times a day.

Sumimasen


"I bought your lunch." "Oh, sumimasen."
"Here, take this concert ticket." "Oh, sumimasen."
"I have brought you the DVD that you wanted to watch." "Oh, sumimasen."

Hmmm... hen strange! Why say sumimasen, there is nothing to 謝る ayamaru apologize about. Later I got to know that they are not apologizing. They are saying "Thank you". Sumimasen also means ありがとう arigatou thank you.

Here are the uses to sumimasen.

"Sumimasen, sumimasen, sumimasen, 降ります orimasu I getting off!" as you call aloud while getting off a
満員電車 man in densha fully packed train.
Used when you are asking people to give way.

"Sumimasen, how do I go to Shinjuku station from here?" as you asking a seemingly busy station officer.
Used when you are interrupting someone from what they are doing.

"Sumimasen, the train was late," as you apologize for arriving late to work.
Used when you are sorry.

"Sumimasen, two beers please," you ordered to the bartender.
Used when you are requesting.


Doumo


In Japan, there are many greetings/expression for different situations. When you don`t greet correctly, you might be thought as 失礼 shitsurei impolite. While greeting is important, replying to the greeting is also likewise important. What word should I use to 返事 henji reply? It is doumo.

"Konnichiwa!" someone greeted you.
"Doumo."

"Otsukare sama deshita!" greeted you when you are going home.
"Doumo."

"Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!" requested you to do something.
"Doumo."

"Arigatou gozaimasu!" said the salesperson when you bought something.
"Doumo."

"Shitsurei shimasu!" someone said to you as he is about to hang up the phone.
"Doumo."


With that, when you are in Japan, try out "sumimasen" and "doumo".
