#22: How to speak -6

    However, maybe these expressions are unnatural, aren't they? Maybe we should say "Shake your butt!" or "Shake your hips!"
    But I have not heard someone saying "Shake your butt!" or "Shake your hips!". I have heard something like this. "Shake your booty!!" So I feel that the expression "Shake your booty!!" is more natural than the others.
    By the way, even if we consult a dictionary for the word "尻", it is diffi…
