How to ask for advice if I want to start doing something, for example:

If I want to start watching Tv-shows, from which should I start? If I want to start doing exercises, how should I start?

Is there specific grammar for it? Can I say something like this:

もし私はドラマを見たい初める、からどんな始まりますか? Thank you.


A literal translation of your question would be:


However, a more natural way to ask the question would be 'Do you have any recommendations?', which is:


  • 「見始めたい」って言うかなぁ、こういう時? – l'électeur Mar 8 '17 at 5:37
  • @l'électeur I'm definitely open to suggestions on how to improve. Does 見たい seem better to you? – Corina Mar 8 '17 at 6:36
