How are you?
Do you have fun to study kanji
Recently I realized that I should
do something to make it exciting
to study kanji and Japanese.
And then I'm trying to make
funny example sentences.
So sometimes you can find
Craziness sometimes helps
you in difficulties.
Having fun is everything!!
Don't forget that!
I tell you one of the good ways
to study here.
1. You read the English and
2. You copy the Japanese sentence
3. You read the explanations
written below while you see
the Japanese sentence on
I believe this is the best way.
So today's kanji is 紙
1. His house is has thin walls like paper
/Kare no ie wa kami no you ni usui/
👉彼(かれ kare) means he
And 彼の means "his~"
👉家(いえ, ie) means a house
👉のように (no you ni) means
・ I hate to treated like a child
...子ども のように 扱われるのが きらい
/Ko-domo no you ni atsuka-wareru no ga
→子ども(こども) means a child
So 子どものように means "like a child"
→扱われる(あつか われる, atsuka-wareru)
is a passive voice of 扱う(あつか-う,
atsuka-u), which means to treat.
If you want to make pssive voices, you put
"れる" at the end of verbs. And the vowel at
the end of verbs change to A.
たたく(tataku, to hit)
→たたか れる(tatakA reru, to be hit)
見る(mi-ru, to see)
→見ら れる(mi-rA reru, to be seen )
よむ(yomu, to read)
→よまれる(yomA reru, to be read)
さわる(sawaru, to touch)
→さわられる(sawarA reru, to be touched)
👉うすい means to be thin
2. You can use burned paper to light in the dark.
/moeteru kami wa kurayami o te-rasu noni
Oh.. it's a difficult sentence XD
👉もえてる is a progressive form of もえる,
which means to burn.
So もえてる紙 means "burned paper"
👉暗闇(くら-やみ,kura-yami) means dark.
It's very difficult kanji. You don't have to
👉照らす(te-rasu) means to light.
👉ために is like "to" to mean an object.
・I go to the sea to swim
→泳ぐ(およぐ, oyo-gu) means to swim
→海(うみ, umi) means sea
→行く(いく, i-ku) means to go
👉使う(つかう, tsuka-u) means to use.
And 使える (tsuka-eru) means "can use
So that's all today.
Thank you for coming here.
I hope this helps you.
See you next time!
