Introducing verbs.


have=arimasu (nonliving) or imasu (living) depending on whether subject is nonliving/living
Don't have = arimasen / imasen
watashi wa kuruma ga arimasen =i don't have a car
anata wa ie ga arimasuka? =Do you have a house?
hai, arimasu= Yes, I have
Pooja san wa kodomo ga imasen = Miss Pooja don't have a child.

Note: in japanese, Mr/Miss/Mrs prefixes are all indicated by common suffix: san rajiv san = mr rajiv pooja san = miss pooja
'sen' ending is common characteristic of negative ('not' form) of verbs.
To make questions, change arimasen/imasen to arimasenka?/imasenka?
example:
You don't have an eraser, isn't it? = anata wa keshigomu ga arimasenka?
Miss Neha doesn't have a child, isn't it? Neha san wa kodomo ga arimasenka?
Introducing verbs.

Verbs are more like arimasu/imasu, all have typycal 'masu' ending.

To go= ikimasu
to come=kimasu
to return=kaerimasu
to do = shimasu
to eat=tabemasu
to drink= nomimasu
to speak=hanashimasu
to sleep =nemasu
You can see all verbs have 'masu' ending in plain form.
To make questions, simply change 'masu' form to 'masuka?'
To make negative forms, change 'masu' to 'masen'
Lets learn usage of 'ikimasu' and 'kaerimasu'
normally article before ikimasu/kaerimasu will be 'e' (pronounce it like alphabet 'A')
learn: where = doko, when=itsu
anata wa doko e ikimasuka? = where are you going?
watashi wa gakko e ikimasu. = i am going to school (=gakko)
Felix san wa itsu sooppa e ikimasuka? = when is Mr felix going to super market (=sooppa)?
Kare wa kyou ikimasu. = He is going on today (kyou)
Note: kare also means 'he' and 'kanojo' also means 'she' other than boy friend/girl friend.
Ex: kyou kanojo wa daigakku e ikimasen = today she won't go to university.
kyou okasan uchi e kaerimasen = Today mother will not be returning back home.
yesterday=kinou
today=kyou
tomorrow=ashita
last week=sen shu, last month =sen getsu
this week =kon shu, this month=kon getsu
next week=rai shu, next month= rai getsu
everyday =mai nichi
everymonth=mai tsuki (tsuki = month/ moon)
everyweek = mai shu
ex: watashi wa mainichi uchi e kaerimasu = i go back home everyday.
anata wa raishu eigakan e ikimasuka? = are you going to cinema theater (eigakan) next week?
Translate the following:
1. Where is the teacher going?
2. He is going to America (use he= 'sensei'. 'kare' is not that respectful )
3. When is he returning?
4.He will return on next week.
5. Teacher will not return tomorrow.
6. When will you sleep everyday?
7. Are you going to india (indo) next month?
8. No, I am not going.

But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. This means you have to answer to all these people when they ask for a report. The problem is that many do not follow through with their fitness plans and thus fail within the first 3 months of starting a new fitness plan or routine.

People talk themselves out of exercising so easily, and the

These tips are followed by every pregnant woman all around the world

If you have a website, you can use Google Trends for your website traffic to increase as well.
Both the content and presentation of news are drastically different from what it used to be.

I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party)
which is part of Neothink.

Learn few fine points of software editing with numerous
tutorials that are simply accessible with few simple clicks.
But my favorite is the link that tells you about
bad dates stories, of course they are the funniest. The moment you think of funny video the first name that
probably comes to your mind is You - Tube.

But it's always wise to check in with a doctor before you start using a supplement regularly. The second option is to use headphones as you probably did at the gym in the past. Emotion linked to a definite objective is a strong mixture.

Since reading manga and watching anime, I've fallen in love learning Japanese. This lesson is easy but as you learn japanese conjugations, these will become more confusing.
