I thought it’s getting colder but still it’s 28 degrees in Tokyo. (´ε` )

Anyway, today’s topic is what is the difference between “〜という”, “〜っていう” and “どういう” .

I don’t often hear these words from foreigner but Japanese people often use it and it’s very useful so let’s master of using them and talk like native Japanese!!xD hehe

Today's Topic
How to use “〜という/〜っていう/どういう”.

●〜という+N/〜っていう+N:N+called ~

Example.1

僕は横浜というところに住んでいます!( ・∇・)
I live in a place that is called Yokohama.

Yokohama is the name you may not know so I said “横浜という” (called Yokohama).
“ところ” means “place”.^_^

Example.2
明日の会議が朝の9時に変わったっていう本当ですか?
Is it true that the tomorrow’s meeting was changed to 9am?

*会議(かいぎ):meeting
*〜っていう/〜という話は本当?:Is it true that ~ 
“〜という” and “〜っていう” means same but “〜っていう” is more casual!!

●どういう+N:What is/do ~ ?/How is/do ~
This is useful when you want to ask more in detail!

どういう意味ですか?
What do you mean?/What does it mean?

*意味(いみ):meaning
