【Grammar-vol.56】How to make long Japanese sentence.

こんにちは!

ユーキでっす!!(*゚∀゚*)

今回は、日本語で長い文を作る練習をしましょう!!!xD 
This time, let’s practice to make loooong Japanese sentence.

YAY( ´∀`)

To make long sentence, you need to use a lot of ”て、に、を、は” which is called 助詞(postpositional particle).

It is hard word so let’s get used to it by checking some example sentences and do quiz!!( ´∀`)

Today's Topic
How to make long Japanese sentence.

POINT
【Noun + を + verb】
を marks the direct object in a sentence.
The direct object is the noun which receives the action of the verb.

Example.1
私は 友達に お土産を 買ったけど、その友達にお土産を渡す前に、お土産を 食べちゃった。
Watashi wa tomodachi ni omiyage wo kattake kedo, sono tomodachi ni omiyage wo watasu
mae ni, mitage wo tabechatta.
Even though I bought souvenir for my friends, I ate it before I gave it to them.

<<explanation>>
1)”は” is coming after noun and that noun is the person who work for “verb”.

2)noun+に→to+noun(direction)
“友達に” means “to friend”

3)time+に 
“渡す前(before you give it)” is a timing.   
So, let’s use “time+に” form in this case.

*お土産(おみやげ)
souvenir 
*渡す(わたす)
give, pass

Example.2
ポケモンGOが最近流行っていますが、私は一度もやったことがありません。
Pokemongo ga saikin hayatteimasu ga watashiwa ichidomo yattakotoga arimasen
Even though it’s been a popular PokemonGo recently, I have never done it.

*最近(さいきん)
recently
*流行る(はやる)
become popular
*やったことがある
I have done ~
*〜いますが/〜だけど
even though~

Example.3
明日は会議が11時にあって、その後 新幹線で大阪に移動して、別の会議が19時からあります。
Ashita wa kaigi ga juuichiji ni atte, sonoato shinkansen de oosaka ni idoushite betsuno kaigi
ga jukuzi kara arimasu
Tomorrow, there is a meeting at 11:00 and then, after that moving to Osaka by bullet train, 
and there is another meeting at 19:00.

*会議(かいぎ)
meeting, conference
*新幹線(しんかんせん)
bullet train
*移動する
move
*別の
another
