so they are sometimes difficult to

But don't worry. I explain everything in

So, today's kanji is 歩

Reads: aru-ku
Means: to walk

How to write 歩↓


1. Do you walk to the station every day?
- Yes, I do.

...毎日 駅まで歩いてるの?

/Mai-nichi eki made aru-i te ru no?/
-/sou dayo/

👉毎日(まいにち, mai-nichi) means
"every day"

毎(まい, mai) means "every"


日(にち, nichi) means "day"

It's very simple.

👉駅まで(えきまで, eki made)

駅(えき, eki) means "a station"

And まで is used like "to somewhere"
and "until ~".

For example,

・Jump here!
/koko made to-be/

→ここ means "here"

→まで means "to somewhere"

→飛べ(とべ, to-be) is a imperative
form of 飛ぶ, which means"to jump"
and "to fly"

・ I'll wait until 2
/ni-ji mede ma-tsu/

→2時(にじ, ni-ji)
時 meams "time"

And 2時 means "two o'klock"

→まで means "until~"

→待つ(まつ, ma-tsu) means
"to wait"

If you use the present form, you mean
about the future.

This is a unique grammar to Japanese.

👉歩いてる(あるいてる, aru-i te ru)

This is called "progressive form" of

But we actually use that as a "present form"

So 駅まで歩いてる means like

"I walk to the station", not "I'm walking to the


This is put to the end of interrogative sentences
to make ot softer.

So that's all today.

Thank you so much for reading this.

I hope this helps you a lot.
