こんにちは!!
ユーキでっす!!( ・∇・)

(Long time no see)

I was on a trip so I couldn’t post for few days!

So from today, let’s write a lot!! xD haha

Today is about “も” xD haha
Just one letter but still very important letter!

Let’s see how to use it!! x)

Today's Topic
There are 2 meanings of も.

1.This express that something is plentiful.
Example.1
駅から家まで歩いて30分もかかります。(*゚∀゚*)
eki kara ie made aruite sanjuppun mo kakarimasu
It takes 30 minutes by walking from the station to home.

If it is around 10-15min, it is not that far so you don’t need to say “も” but 30 minutes is far from station so let’s  use も!!(*゚∀゚*)

Example.2
テキーラを5杯も飲みました!( ;∀;)
teki-ra wo gohai mo nomimashita
I had 5 shots of tequila. 

I would die if I do that!! Lol

2.In a negative sentence, this express that something is scarce or there is none at all.
Example.3
今日は10分も勉強しませんでした。
kyou wa jippun mo benkyou shimasen deshita
I didn’t even study for 10 minutes.

Then let’s study now!!XD haha

Example.4
私はプレゼントを1個ももらっていません( >_<)
Watashi wa purezento wo ikko mo moratteimasen
I didn’t even get a present.

mmm sad!! haha

Let’s try to use も before you forget!!(*゚∀゚*)
