How do you say “I eat cereal in the morning.” in Japanese?

Today’s phrase is :

I eat _ in the morning.

朝は _ 食べてるよ。

If you want to speak politely, you can say :

朝は _ 食べてます。

When you want to say “I eat _ in the morning.”, put the things you eat just before “食べてるよ” or “食べてます”.

For example, if you want to say “I eat cereal in the morning.”, you can say like this :

  • cereal = シリアル shiriaru


 asawa shiriaru tabeteruyo

Or politely :


 asawa shiriaru tabetemasu

  • I eat … = わたしは … 食べてます watashiwa … tabetemasu
