Today's Topic
How to say “want to V”.

want to V → Vしたい

Example.1

(what do you want to do today?)

久しぶりに、焼肉食べたい!
(I want to eat “Yakiniku” after a long time!!)

*久しぶりに(ひさしぶりに):after a long time

*焼肉(やきにく):Japanese style BBQ(*o*)/
*焼く(やく):grill

*引用:グルメノート

Did I make you feel like eating Yakiniku?xD haha
Actually I am getting so hungry…lol
It’s my fault xO

Example.2

(what do you want to do on Saturday?)

友達と一緒にテニスしたい(*゚∀゚*)
(I want to play tennis with my friend.)

一緒に(いっしょに):with/together with
する:play/do
土曜日:(どようび):Saturday

I love playing tennis!! x)
I wish I could play tennis more often(>_<)

Example.3
今週の土曜日は、買い物に行きたい!(*_*)
(On this Saturday, I want to go to Shibuya!)

今週(こんしゅう):this week
土曜日(どようび):Saturday
買い物(かいもの):Shopping

I need to buy more shirts because It’s getting so much hotter and so
I change my T-shirt every second. (Not that often sorry ( ´Д`)y )

Okay !!

I think now we know how to use the grammar!

But we don’t know how to change the form of each verb so
let’s check it that too!!(*__*)

English Simple verb “Want form” verb
buy (かう) いたい
make/cook (つくる) りたい
play (あそぶ) びたい
write (かく) きたい
talk/speak (はなす) したい
go きたい

The last part of vowel changes “u” to “I” + たい .

That rule can be used for 90% of “want to V” form in Japanese

However…

There are some different pattern ʅ( ゚д゚)ʃ
Sorry for the exceptional m(__)m

do する したい
see 見る(みる) 見たい
come 来る(くる) 来たい(きたい)
eat べる(たべる) べたい

Okay okay! That’s it!! That is good enough!! xD

No need to remember all the form of each verb from the beginning! x)

Let’s try to use them first until you get used to use them!!(●´ω`●)

It is quizzes time ~ xD

Let’s GO!!

頑張ってー!xD
(がんばってー!)
