Easy Japanezy 易しい日本語 : かなあ Kana!!! 「字幕」

28 May

 

Hey all! Here is another quick Japanese lesson for you! In this lesson, I teach how to use “Kana”!

As explained in the video, Kana can be used when you are wondering about things such as “I wonder what day of the week it is” and “I wonder if he is going to drink that” etc. For example:

Verb informal + kana:

彼が話すかなあ – I wonder if he is going to speak…

お母さんがテレビを見るかなあ – I wonder if my mum is going to watch television…

However, Kana can also be used in relation to yourself when you are thinking about what you should do…For example, what you should wear, what you should eat, what you should drink, what you should watch.

Verb volitional form + Kana

これを飲もうかなあ。。。 – I wonder if I should drink this…

それを食べようかなあ。。。- I wonder if I should eat that…

そこに座ろうかなあ。。。 – I wonder if I should sit there…

It’s all pretty simple really! I hope you understood that and now know how to use Kana!! Any questions send me an email!! ❤ ❤

Easy Japanezy 易しい日本語!!! くらいなら方がましだ 「字幕」

2 Mar

 

Hey everyone! Here is the newest Japanese lesson for you! In order to find out how to use this grammatical structure then please see below!
皆さん!こんにちは!これは最新の日本語のレッスンです。「くらいなら方がましだ」っていう文法の使い方が分かってくるように下記をご覧下さい!

As you all know, くらいなら方がましだ(Kurai nara houga mashi da)means “I would rather…than…”.

Here is the formation:

Verb informal non-past before くらいなら

Verb informal past before 方がましだ。

For example —> 納豆を食べるくらいなら、豆腐を食べた方がましだ。 I would rather eat Tofu than eat Natto.

Another example —> ロシアに住むくらいなら、ロンドンに住んだ方がましだ。I would rather live in London than live in Russia.

You get the drift! lol. Btw, you don’t have to use the same verb before くらいなら and 方がましだ. The verb you use will change or stay the same depending on what you want to say in each part of the sentence!

Word of The Day – にゃにゃ!!!

10 Jan

Okay!! Lesson Time!! 勉強の時間!

So, today’s word is “にゃにゃ” “Nyanya” However there is also another reading “にゃんにゃん” “Nyannyan“. So, what does this word mean??? In English it means “Meow” as in a cat’s meow. LOL. You’re probably wondering why I am teaching you the meaning of such a word and it is because of this video……………….LOOOOOL

Now, when I watched this video, I suddenly burst out laughing!!! I was rolling about with laughter! I thought in my head “What…is…this…???” The cat is simply repeating the SAME word again and again and the video doesn’t change….Anyway, I was asked by my friends what “Nyan” means and so I thought I’d tell you all! If you keep listening to this song, I have no doubt that this does become extremely annoying! However, if you keep listening to this song, you will never forget what “Nyannyan” means! LOOOL

このビデオを見た時に、行き成り笑い、笑い転げてた~!頭の中で「何。。。これ???。。。」って私がゆっくり言った。この猫はね、ただ同じことを繰り返してるだけだ!その上、ビデオがちっとも変わらない!兎に角、友達に「にゃんにゃんは英語で何?」って言われたので、皆にも教えてあげると思ってた!この曲を聞いてばかりいては、非常に悔しくなるに違いない!しかし、もし聞いてばかりいたら、決して「にゃんにゃん」っていう単語の翻訳を忘れない!!!けっしーーーて!笑~~~!
