Colourful japanese 2

  1. 1. 鈴 花 COLOURFUL JAPANESE 2 Polite, present sentences 6 BasicVerbs Réka Tóth Farkas, 2014
  2. 2. ABOUT THESE SLIDES [READ FIRST] • Probably the best way to start learning Japanese is to copy and practice example sentences by changing only one word or grammar at a time and understanding what that changes compared to the original sentence. This will not only help you learn the phonetic alphabets (and kanji) used in Japanese, but also help get a ‘feel’ for how sentences are put together. The best way to do this is by hand. • Each slide has simple example sentences are given in romanji, hiragana / katakana and kanji (Chinese characters). It is a very good idea to start learning all three characters used in the language as soon as possible as going back and learning again is both tedious and horrendously tiring. Also, it is often much easier to remember the words if you know the kanji! • Also, Japanese does NOT USE SPACES BETWEEN WORDS in written form. The change between words is also signified by a change in the type of character used (hiragana, katakana, kanji). This is another important reason why you should learn all three types of character as soon as possible in order to use the language properly. • The parts of the sentences are all colour-coded (and with not correct, but more literal translations) to help facilitate easier and faster comprehension from the reader and to help memorization of sentence patterns.
  3. 3. 6 BASIC VERBS • Verbs Japanese is a conjugational language. This means that while there are not so many root words (relatively speaking), there are many conjugations to learn in order to express yourself properly in the language. • We will be learning 6 basic verbs to go with each conjugation as we go along in these slides. These are the following in their standard, or dictionary forms (never mind the verb classification for now): • • • • • • 行く 見る 食べる 飲む 来る する いく みる たべる のむ くる する iku miru taberu nomu kuru suru to go to see to eat to drink to come to do go-dan verb ichi-dan verb ichi-dan verb go-dan verb irregular irregular
  4. 4. POLITE, PRESENT TENSE VERB CONJUGATION • ~ます This conjugation is the first type many people learn. It is a present tense, polite verb conjugation that you may use quite frequently. So it is very useful • to go 行く いく iku → 行きます → いきます → ikimasu • to see 見る → 見ます みる → みます miru → mimasu
  5. 5. POLITE, PRESENT TENSE VERB CONJUGATION • to eat 食べる → 食べます たべる → たべます taberu → tabemasu • to drink 飲む → 飲みます のむ → のみます Nomu → nomimasu
  6. 6. POLITE, PRESENT TENSE VERB CONJUGATION • to come 来る → 来ます くる → きます kuru → kimasu • to do する → します する → します Suru → shimasu
  7. 7. NOTES • Note The last syllable of the verb will change to end with ‘i’ and then continue with ~masu if the verb is a go-dan verb. If the verb is an ichiban verb, it will simply drop the ‘ru’ and change this for the ~masu. • Note There are only two irregular verbs (suru and kuru), so these are simple to remember.
  8. 8. PRACTICE ・練習 れんしゅう RENSHUU • Now it is your turn to further your own progress. • The next step is to use the words and sentence patterns to change the sentences we saw before to make new ones. • Use some of the words in the following, vocabulary slide in order to make things more interesting. • Make sure that when you make new sentences that you are always thinking of what the new sentence actually means. • Post your sentences to have them checked by you fellow learners and Learn Japanese admin! 
