How to Say “What did you choose?” in Japanese

How do you say “What did you choose?” in Japanese?

Today’s phrase is :

What did you choose?


 nanini* shitano

If you want to ask politely, you can say :


 nanini* shitandesuka

*We often pronounce “nanini” like “nanni” in everyday conversation.

  • what = 何 nani
  • did you choose = あなたは選んだの anatawa erandano

The literal translation of “What did you choose?” is “何選んだの? nani erandano”.

You can either say “何選んだの?” or “何にしたの?”, but personally, the latter sounds a bit more natural to me.
