[COMIC LEARNING] LEARN JAPANESE/ENGLISH WITH SUSHI-SENSEI’S COMICS #2

What happens when you experience a flood in the apartment? Sushi-sensei, the founder of http://ny-japanese.com/ draws and shows up.

I took the liberty to write up and narrate what was written in both English/Japanese with key vocabulary and phrases.

Part 1) Narration: Oh no! One day I woke up and found myself sleeping in a flooded apartment.

Part 2) Lady: Oh my God, you are flooded, too.

Narration:  The upset neighbor who was also flooded rushed in.

Part 3) Narration: We were panicking.

Did the water rise all the way up to this 6th floor?

Part 4) Narration: Actually, the flood was caused by clogged drains at the roof top.

You never know what’s going to happen in New York.
