重 おもい・おもたい・かさ・じゅう・ちょう （ = omoi / omotai / kasa / juu/ chou)
• 重い = おもい ( = omoi)
• 重たい = おもたい ( = omotai)
Note: 重い ( = omoi) & 重たい ( = omotai) both have the same meaning: “heavy” . We don’t usually distinguish between them very much but I think 重たい
( = omotai）is a bit stronger than 重い ( = omoi).
重い ( = omoi) is objective and 重たい ( = omotai) is subjective. So if you carry it yourself and feel the weight, you use 重たい ( = omotai)

We use this adjective, 重い ( = omoi) or 重たい ( = omotai) negatively to describe a person in a relationship who obsesses over someone, demanding a lot, expecting too much from their relationship, tries to take care of someone too much, or gets jealous excessively. They love someone too much and overwhelm their partner.

Culture note :
We say「お帰りなさい」( = Okaerinasai) to welcome our family member when they come back home. If you are the one who comes back home, you are supposed to say 「ただいま！」(=Tadaima), which means“I am home! “. (只今 ( = tadaima) literally means ”right now”.)
“(I came back) home just now!”→“I am home! “
When we leave home, we say 「行って来ます。」( = Itte kimasu.) or 「行って参ります。」 ( = Itte mairimasu.) ,←more polite, to your family members who stay home or see you off. Those who see off the family (those who stay at home) say 「行ってらっしゃい！」 ( = Itte rasshai!) .

I appreciate your support! サポートありがとう！
I don’t think Maggie sensei is 重い she’s just 細やかな性格だ。:)
I’ll make sure I use that on 亀梨 ふふ
Hehe, Thank you, Aki! And yes, use that phrase to Kame-chan!! I somehow feel like talking to a Japanese girl whenever I talk to you.
HAHAHA actually the international students at my college (they come from all over the world) tend to tell me that I don’t seem western or American in the way I behave and when it comes to stuff I like :) funny that you said that even though you only know me through the internet!^~^
well sensei, I always tell people I should’ve been born in a different country (Japan >.>) >.<
I bet you won’t have much trouble adopting Japanese culture when you come here.
Either way, nationality doesn’t matter. Just be you. Stay wonderful! That matters!
Maggie sensei, you are doing such an amazing job. I’ve just started my beginner 2 Japanese lessons. Can’t say that I can really understand completely your lessons (cose they are really advanced stuff) but seriously, your site is the most useful one I’ve found so far.
Thank you, Maggie sensei!
Thank you for your nice comment! I have tried to cover all different levels in one lesson. Hope you can use some of the stuff for your study.
