[Japanese speaking phrase] できれば〜:If possible

Today, I’m going to share an everyday conversational phrase. Let’s learn it quickly and start using it right away!



——-Today’s Phrase——-

If possible

Using “できれば” (if possible) helps you communicate wishes or requests in a softer, gentler way.


Let’s practice:

A: 私(わたし)も参加(さんか)したほうがいいですか。
B: ええ、できれば
A: Should I participate?/Should I join too?
B: Yes, if possible.


A: できれば、明日(あした)7時(じ)までに会社(かいしゃ)に来て(き)ほしいんだけど。
B: はい、わかりました。
A: If possible, I’d like you to be at the office by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow.
B: Okay, I understand.


Did you come by car? If so, could you give me a ride to the station, if possible?



In my speaking course, you can master authentic spoken Japanese, like the ones above! The course uses everyday Japanese and will help you become comfortable chatting in situations where various topics might arise.

In the speaking course, if you submit your homework, you’ll learn the correct pronunciation and intonation. Daily feedback from your teacher will also help you stay committed to the course.



Improve Your Japanese Speaking Skills in 90 days

Are you learning Japanese and finding it challenging to boost your speaking skills? Just like my JLPT courses, this speaking course is designed with a “daily self-training + teacher support” model. It allows you to practice speaking at your own pace, even when you don’t have time for a formal session with a teacher. The key to rapidly improving your speaking skills is consistency – practicing a little each day is far more effective than cramming a lot into sporadic sessions.
