Grammar tips

TE-form verbs

When we use verbs in the middle of sentences, that is, when we add other words after them, we use their conjugated forms.
The verbs that conjugate, ending with TE, are called "TE-form verbs."

e.g.) OBOEMASU (to memorize) >> OBOETE

Please go to "Learning Tools".

Teach Us, Teacher

TE-form verb + KUDASAI
When you ask somebody to do something in Japanese, you say TE-form verbs and then KUDASAI (Please, or I would ask you to). The TE-form verbs are the conjugated form of verbs that end with TE or DE.

Sound Words

Heart beating
Japanese is a language with lots of onomatopoeia. A wide range of onomatopoeia in the Japanese language, from noises made by animals to expressions of feelings, is explained by audio.

I've heard we'll have small tests, in addition to final exams. I wonder when we'll have a test. I'm feeling DOKI DOKI.
