|Anna|| OKÂSAN, KOKO NI GOMI O SUTETE MO II DESU KA.
Mother, may I throw away waste here?
|寮母||そうねえ。缶は別の袋に入れてください。資源ですから。|| Well. Please put cans into
another bag. Because they are (recyclable) resources.
|Dorm Mother|| SÔNÊ. KAN WA BETSU NO FUKURO NI IRETE KUDASAI. SHIGEN DESU KARA.
Well. Please put cans into another bag. Because they are (recyclable) resources.
|アンナ||はい、分かりました。|| Yes, I see.
|Anna|| HAI, WAKARIMASHITA.
Yes, I see.
In this case, KARA expresses a reason.
e.g.) SHIGEN DESU KARA, BETSU NO FUKURO NI IRETE KUDASAI.
(Because they are (recyclable) resources, please put them into another bag.)
