Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" . I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto" "Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!! Ladies & gentlemen Today's lesson!!
Third lesson: Suki or Kirai?
After this lesson you will be able to express your likes & dislikes!! Isn't that awesome?!!
For today's lesson .we will need some words Don't worry Just a few words!! Look:
Ringo: Apple Niku: Meat
& the main words:
Suki: Like Kirai: Dislike
OKAY!! Let's begin!! Ganbatte!!
When I say that "Ringo ga suki desu" What do you understand?
I told you that "Ringo" means "apple" & "Suki" means "Like"!! So I said "I like apples"!! See?! Easy!!
All what you have to do is : (thing that you like) +ga Suki Desu!!
Now When I say "Niku ga kirai desu"
"Niku" means "meat" & "Kirai" means "dislike" So this means!! Means what? Means "I don't like meat"!! *I don't hate meat but you know !!!*
It's the same thing!! Just put "Kirai" instead of "suki"!!
Some people may ask me "Where is the pronoun ( I )? Why didn't you put (Watashi wa)?"
Good question!! Well When both of the speaker & the listener know what or who are we talking about there is no need to add pronouns But you can add them at the beginning of the sentence when you think that maybe the other people won't understand you well Like this: "Watashi wa ringo ga suki desu" = "I like apple" "Kare wa niku ga kirai desu" = "He don't like meat"
The Rule!! Finally
Now You can tell the others what you like & what you dislike!! & that's great!! All what you have to do is to memorise this:
"Thing Ga suki desu" "Thing Ga kirai desu"
To say "I love something" or "I hate something" you just add "Dai" after "ga" like that:
"Watashi wa ringo ga DAI suki desu" = "I love apples" "Niku ga DAI kirai desu" = "I hate meat" *No, I don't!!*
You can also use this with verbs like "Taberu" = "to eat" But you have to add "Koto" after "Taberu" Here:
"Taberu koto ga suki desu" = "I like to eat" *That's true!! Now you're right!! *
Try now to learn more words from the internet & practise on them & if you learn more words you will be able to form & understand more sentences!!
Now!! Guess what!! It's YOUR TURN!!!
Okay!! It's practise time!!... I want you to translate these sentences to Japanese : I hate books They like sleeping She loves flowers

Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! Hello guys!! I'm Hikari!! Did you enjoyed the last lesson? I really hope so!!
I guess you still remember the last lesson .You don't?! Okay!! I'll remember you!! : Noun/Pronoun+WA+Noun/Adjective+DESU
That's the affirmative form But there are other forms of "desu" Don't worry!! It's soooo simple!!
The second lesson will be about .
Second lesson: Kare wa gakusei janai
After this lesson you will be able to make the negative form & the past tense of "Desu".
You still remember the pronouns!! Don't you? Great!! Today We will use new words!!
we will need demonstrative pronouns we already know them:
Kore: This/These Sore: That/Those
We will need also some adjectives .ummmm :
Kirei: pretty Warui: Bad
& some nouns
Neko: Cat Gakusei: Student Inu: Dog
OKAY!! Let's begin!! Ganbatte!!
Watch this sentence: "Watashi wa Makoto janai" The sentence means "I'm not Makoto" You got it?
I told you last time that "Watashi" means "I" . & you know that "Makoto" is the name of a girl .so the "wa" & the "Janai" means "Is not"!! See? Easy!!
& you can use this form with all the other pronouns!! To say "He's not Itashi" you say "Kare wa Hitashi janai"!! just put "janai" instead of "desu"
Now Let's try something else!! It's very easy!! You will see!!
Look at this sentence: "Kanojo wa gakusei janai"
This sentence means "She's not a student" "Kanojo" means "she" & I told you at the beginning that "Gakusei" means "Student" so Have you understood?!! I'm sure of that!!
It works just like the "Desu" form!! It's just too easy!!
Here!! watch this!!: "Sore wa warui janai"
It means: "That's not bad"!! I told you!! "sore" means "that"...& "warui" means "bad"...So...Is it hard? I don't think so!!
Here's something really important "desu" & "janai" are used only in the present tense To use the past tense You have to use "datta" instead of "desu" & "janakatta' instead of "janai" Okay? Like this:
"Kanojo wa gakusei datta" means "she was a student" "Kanojo wa gakusei janakatta" means "She wasn't a student"
Remember that the past tense ends always with the sound "tta" even in verbs conjugation & we will see it very soon in a lesson dedicated to verbs!!
The Rule!! Finally
So You must know the rule after we have seen the example!! It's just like the first one with "desu"!! just put "janai" instead of it!! So there is no need to tell you!!
Now!! Guess what!! It's YOUR TURN!!!
Okay!! I'm gonna see if you have understood!! Get ready!!...
If you could translate this sentence that means that you have understood!!
This is not a dog!! This is a cat!! Kanojo-tachi wa kirei janai!!
It must be easy!! Isn't it? Now try to make your own examples using words from the previous lesson!! ( Oh!! Please!! Do it for me!! Pleaaaaase!!)
BONUS!!! : Do it like this!!
Today I'm going to teach you something that is very useful!! The word "Sou"!!! You can translate that word by "That way" or "Like this" Here are some expressions that Japanese people say a lot using that word:
"Sou desu" or sometimes they say "Sou da": That's right, That's it, Right on, There you go!! "Sou desu ne?": That's right. I agree. (litt. It's like that isn't it?) "Sou datta": That was it !! Now I remember!! "Sou ne": Alright!! Okay!! (I hear this a lot in animes!!) "Sou desu ka?": Oh really? Is it true?
& if you look well you will see that we know all the words used in these sentences!! you remember...right? "desu"..."datta"...& the tag question "ne"... If you try to translate each word...you will find that the meaning is nearly the same!! look!! "Sou datta"...
"Sou" means "Like that" & "datta" means "was"...so..."sou"+"datta"= "it was like that"!! & I told you that "sou datta" means "that was it!!" See?!! Japanese language is so easy to learn!! & it's so much fun!! (I really enjoy saying "sou da" like do people in anime do *Kurosaki Ichigo*!! specially when no one understand me!! XD)
Pleaaaase!!Revise this lesson very well!! please!! the next one will be related to this!!
Well It's time to say "Sayonara"!! I hope that today's lesson is not very long!! But I promise you!! The next one will be very easy!!
The next one will be about turning a "desu/janai" sentence into a question!! Believe me!! It's very simple!! See you next time!!
