Someday vs. One day: Both Are いつか in Japanese.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Someday / 总有一天 / 언젠가 / Một ngày nào đó

“いつか” means “Someday” and which has been used as the meaning of “at a date in the future that is unknown or that has not yet been decided.”. The basic way to use it is “いつか___したい。(I want to ___ someday.)”, etc. For instance, “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたい。(I want to speak Japanese someday.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “いつか” is used as the meaning of “a day is VAGUE”. Everybody could use this both in daily conversations as casual and in business situations as formal such as “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたいな。(I want to speak Japanese someday.)” as casual and “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたいです。(I’d like to speak Japanese someday.)” as formal. Furthermore, “いつか” is always put the beginning of a sentence.

[wp-svg-icons icon=”checkmark-circle” wrap=”i”] いつか(かならず)

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] One day / 总有一天(一定) / 언젠가 (반드시) / Một ngày nào đó (chắc chắn/ nhất định)

“いつか” means “One day” and which has been used as the meaning of “at some time in the future”. The basic way to use it is “いつか___したい。(I want to ___ one day.)”, etc. For instance, “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたい。(I want to speak Japanese one day.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “いつか” is used as the meaning of “you would make a day come true by making an effort.”. Everybody could use this both in daily conversations as casual and in business situations as formal such as “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたいな。(I want to speak Japanese one day.)” as casual and “いつか日本語にほんごはなしたいです。(I’d like to speak Japanese one day.)” as formal. Furthermore, “いつか” is always put the beginning of a sentence. Lastly, the way to use “someday and one day” is the same in Japanese which is “いつか”, so how you say it is more important or if you say “いつかにかならず”, that definitely means “One day”.
