Hello again!

Today's WordMaster@Work is a little out of the ordinary, but we know that it's information you can use, and use often!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: ジャパニーズイングリッシュ
E-MAIL & WEB ADDRESSES   Eメールとウェブアドレス

Explanation

  • There are several symbols that are commonly used in e-mail and Web addresses. Here's how to say them when telling someone an address:

    @at.dot/forward slash-hyphen_underscore
    Be Careful! When saying the @ symbol, we don't say “at mark” like the Japanese アットマーク.
  • Eメールやウェブアドレスにはよく使われる記号がいくつかあります。ここでは、アドレスを人に伝えられるよう、読み方を紹介します。

    注意:@ 記号について言うとき、日本語のように「アットマーク」とは言いません。
