If you want to say thank you,say

DOomo
or
DOomo aligatoo.

DOomo means thanks and can be used everybody.

DOomo aligatoo is used from the elder to younger and sounds very casual or too casual so if you were treated very nice,say Doomo aligatoo gozaimasu.

 

Anata to watashi

You=anata
I=watashi

Of course we have the word anata and watashi.

But Japanese language does not want to say watashi and anata especially anata because it sounds rude in the conversation but in the song etc.

Hajimemashite.
Watashi wa Sally des(u).

is not common but

Hajimenashite.
Sally des(u).

And

Sumimasen,anata wa John san desu ka?

is not common and sounds rude.

Sumimasen,John san desu ka?

is natural and common and proper.

 

You can take on line and real lesson

I named my site<Tokyo Japanese School>—but there is only one teacher in this school—Sachiko—it’s me.

DOomo aRIgatoo=3+5=8 beat

DO/o/mo//a/RI/ga/to/o=
3   +   5   =   8 beat.

DOomo is used everywhere.
DOomo means thanks,hi,,sometimes even sorry.

Japanese speaking level divides 3 stages.

1st class: Most polite level=Alligator of long tail

2nd class: Polite level=Alligator of short tail

3rd class: Casual level=Alligator of no tail

DOomo aRIgatoo is (3) stage so we can never say “DOomo aRIgatoo”to our boss or our customors but”DOomo”

“DOomo” is (2)stage.Alligator with short tail

COUTION:DOomo aRigatoo is longer and DOomo is shorter but DOomo sounds less casual※ and “DOomo aRigatoo”sounds more casual.

But “DOomo aRIgatoo”sounds very nice so every one like the phrase  very much and”DOomo” sounds little bit like apologizing and courtesy.

If you are treated ramen or something good by Japanese,please say
“DOomo arigatoo-gozaimasu”

And the last scean you say good bye to Japanese,say
“DOomo arigatoo gozaimashita”

In those case,”Doomo”means “very much”and”Arigatoo gozaimashita”is very famillia because you can not spend only one day without”Arigatoo gozaimashita”in Japan.

Yes,you are said every clark when you leave the shop this phrase
“aRIgatoo gozaimashita”.

It means thank you and good bye.

Please use this phrase and add DOomo at the top of the phrase,
“DOomo arigatoo-gozaimashita”means thank you very much and good bye!

It sounds perfect!

※Bellow case,it sounds perfect.First class Japanese!

A:DOozo=Please/After you/Follow me/Here you are/Would you like ~

B:Doomo=Thanks
