Hi guys. I'm studying Japanese too. Yay!
More than a year na self-study pero lower intermediate pa rin level ko.
Share ko lang to tinuro ng Japanese friend ko (sori kung may wrong grammar siya
)The Japanese Laugh(笑) :
You have something to share with others. Different from other laughs, this is used to explicitly show that you’re laughing about the thing you said previously and urging others to laugh.Hahaha はっはっは :
You have something funny to laugh about, or you have something to brag about. Some people use this laugh to justify themselves when they are pointed out their faults.Buwahaha, Gahahaha (ぶわっはっは、がはっはっは) :
You have something that makes you unable to avoid bursting into laughter. It’s not woman’s way of laughing in Japan. This laugh is stronger than “Hahaha”.Fufufu ふっふっふ :
You have a secret or something only in your mind. You use this laugh to let others know the fact that you know something they don’t know. Some people use this laugh as the modest version hehe (ヘっヘっヘ).Fofofo (ふぉっふぉっふぉ) :
This laugh is used to mean, “Hey, young man, you’re immature to do something like that.”Kekeke (けっけっけ) :
A laugh of monsters or ghosts in Japan.
Following laughs are used when you look down on others explicitly. You’d better not use the following to strangers since it is quite rare for Japanese to let others know that you look down on them. Here’re laughs in an ascending order of how much you look down on others.ふっ << ふんっ << はっ << はんっ << へっ << けっ
I explained several Japanese laugh, but it is also important how you laugh. If you use hahaha laugh loudly, we would think that you’re bragging on something, but if you use “hahaha” laugh with smile, we would think that you just have something funny.
