Hello! It's a pleasure to be back here with you at the start of another week! As you know, Thursday is Labor Thanksgiving Day, so the topic we've selected for this week is, of course, labor (= work). We'll look at four styles of working, beginning today by taking up two of the most common ones!

常勤の(常勤者) / 非常勤の(非常勤者)


  • To work full-time is to work the standard number of hours for a particular job; in other words, to work the whole workweek.

    A full-timer is someone who works full-time.

    To work part-time is to work LESS than the standard number of hours for a particular job; in other words, to work only part (= not all) of the workweek.

    A part-timer is someone who works part-time.

    Be Careful! We do NOT use the words “arbeit” (actually a German word) or “part” to mean “part-time job” like the Japanese words アルバイト and パート.
  • work full-time と言うと、ある仕事をするのに標準的な勤務時間数働く、つまり、フルタイムで働く、ということです。

    full-timer とは、フルタイムで働く人をさします。

    work part-time と言うと、ある仕事をするのに標準的な勤務時間数より少なく働く、つまり、パートタイムで働く、ということです。

    part-timer とは、パートタイムで働く人をさします。

    注意:arbeit(これはドイツ語です。)、または part という言葉は、日本語で言う「アルバイト」「パート」の意味では使いません。


  1. Employees who work full-time are usually given a monthly salary. Those who work part-time are often paid by the hour.
  2. I had a lot of part-time jobs when I was a student, but this is my first full-time job.
  3. a: Are you a full-time employee?
    b:  No, I'm a part-timer. I work from 10 to 2 while my children are in school.
  4. (at a job interview)
