Transcript:Learn Japanese: How to Say "Call Me"

Hello, my name is Dai Ishiguro for About.com. Today I'm going to teach you how to say, "Call me." 

Saying "Call Me" in Japanese

"Call me," we say "De n wa Shi te Ku da sa i." This is the formal way of saying, "Please call me." "Denwa Shite Kudasai," "Denwa Shite Kudasai."

And the casual way, you can get rid of "Kudasai." You just say "Denwa Shite." "De n wa Shi te," "Denwa Shite." "Denwa Shite Kudasai" is the formal way. "Denwa Shite" is "call me."

Writing "Call Me" in Japanese

Now I'm going to write "Denwa Shite Kudasai" in Japanese. So I'm going to write in Kanji. "Denwa" means "telephone." "Den," this is "Den."  "De n," "Den wa," "Denwa." "Denwa," "Denwa Shite Kudasai." "Shi te Ku da sa i." "Denwa Shite Kudasai." "Denwa Shite Kudasa," "Please call me." Casual way, you get rid of "Kudasai" here, "De n wa Shi te," "Denwa Shite." "Denwa Shite," "call me."
