Classroom Etiquette in Japanese; Part 1
はじめましょお。 hajimemashoo pronounced; hah jee meh mah show This means "let's begin" and is said by the teacher.
きりつ、きいおつけ、れい、ちゃくせき kiritsu, kiotsuke, rei, chakuseki pronounced; key reetz, kyots skay, ray, chalk sekee This is what Japanese students do at the beginning of class after arriving and bowing to show respect to the teacher. Generally, a student who has been predesignated says these. They mean "Stand, attention, bow, sit." The students and maybe the teacher will say "good morning" or "おはようございます" (ohayou gozaimasu) when they bow. However there is some changes. In some cases, "きりつ" and "ちゃくせき" may be changed. This may also be said at the end of class. Remember that Rs in Japanese are hard Rs, so make sure to touch the top of the mouth with your tongue when you say it.
(お)やすみです。 (o)yasumi desu. pronounced; o yah sue me des ~ is absent The O is used when referring to another person's absence and adds politeness. Do not use O when referring to your own absence. You say the person's name and "san" where the "~" is.
ちこくです。 chikoku desu. pronounced; chee ko coo des ~ is absent This is referring to when someone else is tardy. You say the person's name and "san" where the "~" is.
すみません、おそく なりました。 sumimasen, osoku narimashita. pronounced; sue me mah sehn, o sew coo nah ri mah she ta. I'm sorry, I have become late. This is used when arriving tardy. Remember that Rs in Japanese are hard Rs, so make sure to touch the top of the mouth with your tongue when you say it.
