とても おいしい です。
totemo oishii desu.
It’s very delicious!

とても 大きな木。
totemo ookina ki.
A very big tree.

OTHER USEFUL “VERY” WORDS: 

  • 非常に hijou ni
  • chou (kind of slang – chou means “super-“) [超あつい chou atsui–very hot]

    Beginners often overuse “totemono”, instead you can use some synonyms for it to sound more like a Japanese person. You can use “kanari” かなり or “toku ni” 特に and your Japanese sounds like a pro.
    Kanari oishii tabemono (quite/very good food)
    Toku ni atsukatta ryokucha (it was especially/particularly hot green tea)
