So the first vlog, I talk about how to use “Heeee” へぇ in 4 levels like a Japanese. I’m not faking in the video. If you have lived in Japan before, you know what I’m saying, they really use “Heeeee” like a boss lol
Here let me introduce the 4 levels of “Heee” へぇ to you
4 Levels of Japanese “Heee”
Level 1 – Pretend to be surprised
It’s interesting to hear the Level 1 “Heee” へぇ from Japanese. Because they sound obviously not surprised by your conversation, but still showing “Heee”へぇ reaction. Usually there will be a few seconds dead air after the level 1 Heee (they’re thinking the next topic lol).
The techniques of this level is to make your mouth shape like our ancestor – Chimpanzee. lol I’m not kidding. If you live in Japan, you know what I’m saying right? 😀 If you can’t make chimpanzee mouth shape, you will never get to make level 1 Heeee!
Level 2 – A little bit surprised
When you get this level Heeee へぇ, congratulations, your friend is showing much interest on your topic 😀
The techniques to do this level like a real Japanese, are nodding and lifting up your eyebrow while saying “Heee” へぇ. Well you still need to look like a chimpanzee mouth though lol
Level 3 – Really surprised
If you get this level reaction, Congratulations!!! Champagne! Cheers!! lol Meaning your friend is surprised by your words and show keen interest on knowing the next part. Just like clicking “Continue reading” on a blog post. lol
This level Heee へぇ needs you to make your voice high pitch like a lady, and open your mouth till the size that fits your fingers in. Good thing is that you don’t have to look like a chimpanzee at this level lol
Level 4 – Unbelievable!
You need to make your “Heee” very short at this level. As if you are saying “WHAT!?” Often, Japanese tend to believe everything you said, even though you were just joking. I often get “Heee?! Majide?!” from Japanese friends when I try to tell a joke. They are really serious about jokes 😛
But try to notice the 4 levels of Heee from your Japanese friends. When you found what I mentioned in the video, share your comments with me. ^^
