SUGGESTED USAGE:

私はアメリカ人ですけど、妹は宇宙人なのです。
watashi wa amerika jin desu kedo, imouto wa uchuu jin na no desu.

I am an American, but my little sister is an alien. [This example comes in quite handy for checking to see if your listener is listening. if your listener shows no reaction, there is a good chance he’s not listening.]

ABOUT SUGGESTED USAGE:

watashi – I, me but when the は wa (hirganaga ha) follows, it can only be translated as ‘I’ because は wa is the main topic never a direct object

アメリカ人 amerika jin – American Just like 宇宙人 uchuu jin simply add a 人 jin to a country to get the countrys people

ですけど desu kedo – but saying this is true, but…
imouto – younger sister older sister is 姉 ane
なのです na no desu – a little bit added to give the impression of conveying truth
