How to Friendly Say “I’m flattered” in Japanese
Someone sometimes uses a compliment for making people happy. What do you reply to people when they compliment you? Don’t worry about it. Let me introduce how to accept a Compliment in Japanese today!
“お世辞” means “Flattery” and after someone compliment, you could say “お世辞がうまいですね。” or “お世辞でも嬉しいです。” which is ‘I am flattered.’ that nuance has ‘you are happy about it’. However, if you say “お世辞ですよね？” or “お世辞でしょ？” which is ‘You must be flattering me.’ that nuance does not have ‘you are happy about it’.
