Lesson 5: I want one of “this.”

I’ve got a very special phrase for you — one you’ll be able to use in a TON of situations you come across while in Japan. 

Are you ready? It’s not as hard as you think, but is so useful:

kore o hitotsu kudasai

It means “one of this please.

Use this phrase when you can point at something you want. Perhaps you’re holding a restaurant menu or at a glass counter. 

Point at the item you want to order and say “kore o hitotsu kudasai”.
