Even though people study Japanese hard with text books, you may not be able to find Japanese slung unless you find a book about it. I will introduce you cool and exciting slung on my blog.
Today’s lesson is “Chou”. I often use this word in my daily life. In Japanese, “Chou” is written as “超” in Kanji. This basically means “to overdo things” or “to go too far.” However, “Chou” as slung is used when you want to emphasize something like the words “super” or “ultra” in English. “Chou” is used as “Chou + adjectives.” For example, “Chou Kawaii! (Super cute!)”, “Chou Oishii! (Delicious!)” and “Chou Samui (Terribly cold)”. “Chou” is really useful word to express how much you feel something. Particularly, young people from teenager to 30s use this word often. When you have a chance to talk with Japanese, try the word “Chou”.
