Today’s Word: respect

April 19, 2017 =========

☆  respect  尊敬


If you have respect for someone, you have a good opinion of them, and their character. If you like karaoke, you’ll find lots of songs on this topic of respect! You can even learn to spell the word, if you want to sing along to Aretha Franklin’s song, Respect. In those lyrics, she spells it out for us! “R-E-S-P-E-C-T”

Do you ever sing English songs at karaoke? It’s really a good way to get your mouth muscle used to pronouncing English, and it’s fun, too! Unfortunately, not many of my Japanese friends were brave enough to sing English songs when they went to karaoke with me, so I always had a lot of respect for the friends that would sing English songs and not just Japanese ones. 🙂
