Basic sentence

On this page, you can learn how to ask what somebody’s hobby is in Japanese.

Key Sentence

First box: English, Second box: Romaji, Last box: Japanese writing and audio

What is your hobby?
shu mi wa na n de su ka

One by one

  • しゅみ → hobby
  • は → no meaning
  • 何(なん) → what
  • です → is
  • か → ?

Note 1

‘your’ is あなたの, so ‘your hobby’ is あなたのしゅみ.

However, you hardly use あなたの in a daily conversation. That is why ‘your hobby’ is just しゅみ.

Note 2

You can ask other things with the sentence pattern:

What is your name?
o na ma e wa na n de su ka
お名前(お・な・まえ) → name
What is your job?
shi go to wa na n de su ka
仕事(し・ごと) → job


Task 1: Change into Japanese.

  • What is your hobby?

Task 2: Change into English.

  • しゅみは何ですか。


Task 3: Listen to answer what you hear in English.
