Reschedule is a word that we Japanese also use.  Japanese pronunciation of this word is “risukeju-ru” and we usually use this word as “リスケする / risuke suru”.  Risuke is a shorten version of reschedule and suru means do so “risuke suru” means “do reschedule”.  This is one of the Japanglish.


Risuke is a common word both of business situations and ordinary conversations.  Let’s look at examples.



Examples of Risuke
