Lesson Transcript

In this lesson, we'll cover an extremely important phrase, "Where is the bathroom?"
In English we say, where is the bathroom? Let's break it down by syllable. Where is a question starter to ask for location. Is is the verb, the bathroom is the place you're asking for.
Don't forget that intonation is important here. The intonation should dip and then end in an upward tone. Otherwise it won't sound much like a question.
Now, you would want to add the word excuse me in front of any question you ask a person you don't know. This makes the question sound more polite and the person would likely respond better. If you're impolite, they will most likely be impolite to you!
Bathroom signs tend to be the common person-in-dress or person-in-pants sign to signal men and women. If not, they may have the words men or women. Many facilities also have a bathroom for wheelchair access. These bathrooms have much more space. You shouldn't use them unless you physically find the regular bathrooms difficult to use.
When travelling, the best place to use a bathroom would be a nearby department store - that's my recommendation. The bathrooms are clean and are open to everybody. However, if there are no department stores nearby, a local cafรฉ might be your best option. In such cases the bathrooms are usually for customers only, therefore you would most likely have to buy something small. You may also need to ask for the key in many instances. In other cases, you might find portable bathrooms, which are not the cleanest, but nonetheless usable. Your last resort would be behind the bushes if you're out in the wild. In that case toilet paper will not be available, unless it fell miraculously from the heavens. I suggest you don't count on it and bring your own. If you're in town, find someplace indoors, because it's actually illegal to urinate outside.
Okay, now to close out today's lesson, we'd like you to practice what you've just learned. I'll say the phrase or sentence, and why don't you try saying it out loud? Good luck everybody!
- Where is the bathroom?
- Excuse me, where is the bathroom?
All right, that's going to do it for today! See you all soon!
