For Life

Greetings, and welcome to October!

A precision machine deserves to be well-maintained, especially that most valuable of all machines - your body. This week, we take a page from the owner's manual and look at some recommended routine maintenance to keep ourselves looking, feeling, and smelling great!

By the way, congratulations to “WordMaster Live”, our daily radio program broadcast on USEN. Today it celebrates 5 years on the air!!

Today's LessonCATEGORY: 間違いやすいボキャブラリー


  • Toothpaste is a thick, soft substance used with a toothbrush to clean teeth.

    Be Careful! Although we use it to brush someone’s TEETH, it is called TOOTHpaste not “TEETHpaste”.
  • toothpaste とは、歯をきれいにするために、歯ブラシにつけて使う、ねっとりした、やわらかいもの、つまり、歯磨き粉のことです。

    注意:「歯を磨く」と言うときは、 brush someone’s TEETH. と複数形を使いますが、歯磨き粉のことは、 TEETHpaste ではなく、 TOOTHpaste と言います。



  1. You have such white teeth! What kind of toothpaste do you use?
  2. You don't need to put so much toothpaste on the brush. They say that a pea-sized amount is enough.
  3. When you're at the store, can you get me a small tube of toothpaste for my trip?
  4. We bought some strawberry-flavored toothpaste for the kids.
