【Grammar-vol.52】There are two way of using “どこ(where)”

こんにちは!

ユーキです!(*゚∀゚*)

今日は、どこ(Where)の使い方について説明しようと思います^^
Today I would like to explain the way of using どこ.

Before you study about this, you need to know two kinds of verbs!
Static verb and not static verb!!( ・∇・)

Let’s check this out and come back here!x) hehe

Did you come back?B) haha

Ok then let’s study どこ!!o(`ω´ )o

Today's Topic
How to use どこ

どこに+subject+verb?(static verb)
どこで+subject+verb?(not static verb)

Example.1
今日はどこで遊んだの?
kyou wa doko de asonda no?
Where did you hang out today?

遊ぶ(あそぶ)
play/hang out
This is active verb, not static so let’s use で as preposition( ・∇・)

Example.2
明日、どこで会う?
ashita doko de au?
Where will we meet tomorrow?

会う(あう)
meet/see

This also need で for preposition!!x)

Example.3
Yukiはどこにいるの?
Yuki wa doko ni iruno?
Where is Yuki?

いる means “Someone is at/in/on somewhere” and this is static thing!
So let’s use に!!^^

Example.4
私の運転免許証どこにあるの?
Watashi no untenmenkyoshou doko ni aruno?
Where is my driver’s license?

運転免許証(うんてんめんきょしょう)
driver’s license

ある means “There is something at/in/on somewhere” and this is also
static thing! so let’s use に!!o(`ω´ )o

Okay~!!( ・∇・)

This part, if you know the difference between に and で, it is not that difficult I guess B)
Let’s get used to use に and で first!!XD

Now, it is quiz time♪( ´∀`)

Let’s be able to ask anything with どこ by doing quiz!XD hehe

頑張って!!o(`ω´ )o
