Hello again! Today we'll be looking at two words that have an honored place in every Japanese schoolgirl's vocabulary!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: 役に立つ表現CATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー
WHAT A CUTE (baby)! / WHAT A BEAUTIFUL (flower)!


  • Use the expression What a cute ...! or What a beautiful ...! when you want to say 「かわいい!」 or 「きれい!」.

    Be Careful! When talking about two or more things, remember to drop the article “a” and say What cute ...! or What beautiful ...!
  • 日本語で「かわいい(...)!」、または「きれい(な...)!」と言いたいとき、英語では、What a cute (...)! または What a beautiful(...)! という表現を使います。

    注意:2つ以上のものについて話す場合は、aをつけずに What cute ...! または What beautiful ...! と言います。


  1. (after hearing a children's song)
    What a cute song! Please sing it again.
  2. (two tourists having dinner at a restaurant in Hollywood)
    a: Who's that coming in the door?
