sore – それ

それ (“so-re”; “That”)

When referring to an object that is closer to the listener, you would say:

それ(so-re)

Let’s modify the ramen conversation from yesterday’s post:

A:「 これは辛いですか?」(“ko-re wa ka-ra-i de-su ka?”; “Is this spicy?”)

B:「 はい、それは辛いです。」(“ha-i, so-re wa ka-ra-i de-su”; “Yes, that is spicy”)

Until tomorrow, where we will learn how to say “that over there”.

PRACTICE: Create a small dialog between two people where one uses これ  and the other uses それ to refer to the same object.
