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
"Anata wa Hiroto desu"
. "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?"
.. "Are you Hiroto?"
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
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
Just a few words!!
& the main words:
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!!
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
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)?"
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
"Watashi wa ringo ga suki desu" = "I like apple"
"Kare wa niku ga kirai desu" = "He don't like meat"
The Rule!! Finally
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"
"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
Okay!! It's practise time!!...
I want you to translate these sentences to Japanese
I hate books
They like sleeping
She loves flowers
"Book" = "Hon"
"To sleep" = "Neru"
"Flower" = "Hana"
BONUS!!! : I want THIS ONE!!
To say "I want something" you say
"SOMETHING ga hoshii"
"Hoshii" means "want"
"Ringo ga hoshii" = "I want an apple"
You can add pronouns if you want
But it's better like that!!
Be careful!! This works only with nouns
to say "I wanna sleep" we use something else
Don't worry!! I'll teach you how in other lessons!!
I hope this lesson was as useful as the previous one!! Please make sure you read the next one!!
Try to guess what the next lesson will talk about!! I won't tell you!!
Good-bye !! Sayonara !!
