どんどん vs. だんだん: The Complete Guide to Figure Out

What is the difference between “どんどん(dondon) and だんだん(dandan)”? Which is often used as the meaning of “quickly”? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!

どんどん(dondon)

Quickly, Rapidly / 渐渐地 / 점점 / Nhanh chóng

“どんどん(dondon)” means “Quickly or Rapidly” and which has been used as the meaning of “a very short time”. The basic way to use it is “わたしはどんどん___。(I quickly/rapidly ___)”, etc. For instance, “わたしはどんどん日本語にほんごきになる。(I quickly/rapidly come to like Japanese.)”, “わたし最近さいきんどんどんふとってきた。(I’m quickly getting bigger these days.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “どんどん” is used as the meaning of “A CHANGING SPEED IS SO QUICKLY.”, unlike “だんだん”. Everyone could use “どんどん” as casual, polite and formal such as “どんどん日本語にほんごきになったよ。(I quickly/rapidly came to like Japanese.)” as casual and “どんどん日本語にほんごきになりました。(I quickly/rapidly came to like Japanese.)” as polite and formal.

だんだん(dandan)

Gradually / 慢慢地 / 조금씩 / Dần dần, từ từ

“だんだん(dandan)” means “Gradually” and which has been used as the meaning of “If something changes or is done, it changes or is done in small stages over a long period of time, rather than suddenly”. The basic way to use it is “わたしはだんだん___。(I gradually ___)”, etc. For instance, “わたしはだんだん日本語にほんごきになる。(I gradually come to like Japanese.)”, “わたし最近さいきんだんだんふとってきた。(I’m gradually getting bigger these days.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “だんだん” is used as the meaning of “A CHANGING SPEED IS SLOWLY.”, unlike “どんどん”. Everyone could use “だんだん” as casual, polite and formal such as だんだん日本語にほんごきになったよ。(I gradually came to like Japanese.)” as casual and “だんだん日本語にほんごきになりました。(I gradually came to like Japanese.)” as polite and formal.
