Talk, Speech, Conversation
The kanji version of 話 means talk. This word also means talk, but it means a few other things as well. This can refer to a speech or story as well. Basically anything that involves a talking session. So, before you go, I hope you stay awhile and listen to my 話.
Who tells a great story? Hana, she (はなし) tells a great story! If you know someone named Hana or Hanna you can use that person to help you to remember this one better too.
You can also use 話す's reading to help you to remember this one, as well.
No matter how many times you tell me the same story, I still don't understand.
A talk about Japanese toilets again?
Could you listen to me for just a little bit?
