how do you say "Refugees are humans too" in Japanese

Would it be なんみんも にんげんです。

(My Kanji is quite limited, so that's why I've written it in Hiragana)

You are correct. You can say:

「なんみんもにんげん(だ/です/である)。」 or

「なんみんもまたにんげん(だ/です/である)。」

  • what's the difference between the two terms? i.e. what effects does また have? Feb 10, 2017 at 4:57
  • ^ Dania, また adds emphasis on the 「も」"too/also/as well", and probably has a nuance of "equally"... and I think ~もまたにんげんだ sounds a bit more formal/literary than ~もにんげんだ
