  • And today's phrase is it depends on,

  • which is a very important one that all Japanese businesspeople should know. OK.

  • But before we do that, let's do our usual test.

  • So tell me someone who's open to new ideas.

  • Your father? Your friend?

  • Your colleague? Your boss?

  • OK.

  • It's actually a hard question. I can't think of anyone who's open to new ideas.

  • OK, but I hope you can. OK.

  • So today's phrase is it depends on.

  • Very useful.

  • OK. And like I said, every Japanese business people should know this

  • because you use it every time. OK?

  • Because this is what I always hear if I ask Taro. If Taro's working late.

  • I say, Taro, Hey do you always work late?

  • And he says Ah. It's case-by-case.

  • OK now, case-by-case

  • is kind of, I mean, we do say that in English we say yeah on a case by case basis.

  • But the Japanese use it all the time, every time case-by-case case by case

  • we don't use it like that. OK.

  • There's a better way to express this.

  • And it's like this. So if I say Taro, do you always work late?

  • You can say, well, it depends on the day.

  • Just like that. It's much more natural.

  • Well, it depends on the situation. It depends on the season. It depends on something

  • Or it depends.
